ASTM WK39214

    Revision of C1671 - 07 Standard Practice for Qualification and Acceptance of Boron Based Metallic Neutron Absorbers for Nuclear Criticality Control for Dry Cask Storage Systems and Transportation Packaging

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1671 - 07

    Developed by Subcommittee: C26.03 | Committee C26 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK39214

    1. Rationale

    The areal density of 10B is a measured quantity and should not be statistically derived. Neutron absorbers should meet a minimum thickness and have a minimum measured 10B density. Acceptance testing should be based on a pass/fail criteria.
