Abstract
A quantitative assessment was made of the accident risks associated with the transportation of radioactive material in the nuclear power industry to the year 2020. A scenario was developed for the period from 1975 to 2020 for shipments between nuclear reactors, chemical reprocessing plants, fuel fabrication facilities and waste repositories. Technical data from numerous sources were collected for shipments of spent fuel, recycled plutonium, high-level radioactive solid waste and fission-product gases. Assumptions were developed regarding transport modes, shipping containers, transport pathways for dispersion of released radioactivity, population distribution and health responses to radiological exposure.
