This book contains papers from a NATO-sponsored workshop in Almaty in September 2005, which discussed safety-related issues of storing spent nuclear fuel. Fifteen papers cover aluminum-clad fuel discharged from research reactors worldwide, while five papers examine stainless steel-clad fuel from fast reactors, and two Zircaloy-clad fuel from commercial light-water reactors.
Broad coverage of topic: diverse reactor types and many countries represented at the workshop
Cross-cut mixture of presentations of basic and applied research into spent fuel storage
Wide and unique compilation of references to related work quoted in the 22 papers
