Abstract

A method of sensitivity analysis is proposed and used to investigate the performance of a transmutation system operating in the fast neutron spectrum. Based on the principles of factorial experimental design, the sensitivity analysis considers the impact of neutron flux, minor actinide content and dwell time on the quantity of plutonium that can be loaded to, and destroyed by, a transmutation system. The analysis also considers the potential environmental hazard associated with transmutation systems by investigating the corresponding integrated toxic potential of the final disposal inventory.
