- As part of the Safety Analysis Report for (SARP) for each special nuclear materials package, experimental tests or an analysis must be performed to determine the temperature distribution throughout the package when exposed to normal conditions of transport. These normal conditions include two cases -- one with insolation and one without insolation. Insolation (total solar heat load) values to be used in the analyses are given in 10 CFR 71.71; however, the manner in which the insolation is to be applied is not specified. Several approaches can be taken: (1) perform a steady-state analysis assuming the insolation is applied continuously, (2) perform a transient analysis assuming the incident insolation is represented by a step function (i.e., insolation is applied and then not applied in 12-hour cycles), or (3) perform a transient analysis where the incident insolation is represented by a more complex function involving variables such as time of day. The purpose of this paper is to present these various approaches and examine the effect they have on package temperature distributions. The DC-1 shipping package with the Z88 can was used for the analyses to represent a typical thin-walled Celotex-based shipping package.
