Abstract:

A study was conducted to determine the capability of Army Nuclear Power Program ANPP plants to manufacture the radioactive transuranic elements and their daughters. The FORTRAN computer code MPC1 was written as an aid in the calculation of the concentrations of selected radionuclides in the primary coolant of a nuclear power plant after a postulated release of irradiated fuel into the coolant. The results of these calculations for the ANPP plants SM-1, SM-1A, and MH-1A are reported, along with a detailed description of MPC1. Author
