Title: Method and apparatus for assessing the state of a spent-fuel facility
Description: A system is disclosed for assessing a state of a pool 12 for storing spent nuclear fuel rods or assemblies 14. The system allows a forecast to be made regarding the future development of the coolant (water) level elevation h(t) within the pond based on a measured leakage 22 of coolant 16 therefrom. A flow meter 26 measures the outflow of coolant from a dyke 24 arranged to collect coolant leaking from a rupture 22 in the spent-fuel facility 10. Additional parameters such as the coolant inflow rate, the temperature of the coolant inflow, the temperature of the bulk coolant, a radiation dose rate in the vicinity of the spent-fuel facility etc, may also be taken into account for assessing the location and size of the rupture, as well as for course prediction of the event.
