New Guide for the recommendation of specific test methods and conditions to support application of C1174 approach for glass/glass-ceramic waste form materials

1. Scope

To develop consensus standards for, and promote commercialization of, nuclear fuel cycle, materials, products and processes. The Committee will provide internationally accepted standards which facilitate the commerce; worker safety; public and environemental health; and regulatory compliance within the Nuclear Fuel Cycle. All aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle are included with emphasis on nuclear fuel and reactor materials processing, analysis, and disposal/disposition technolgies and applications. Nuclear fuel cycle activites of both the commercial nuclear industry and the defense community fall within the scope of this committee.

The work of the Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM International committees and national and international organizations having mutual interest.


glass/glass, ceramic waste


Tests identified in this guide will provide the data and insights required to develop a degradation model for long-term predictions following the logic detailed in C1174.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
