Development of robotic multisensor inspection system for used nuclear fuel canisters

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Dry storage of used nuclear fuel is an integral part of the fuel cycle and methods to inspect the canisters that confine the used fuel rods are being established. The challenges for inspection systems include geometric constraints, elevated temperature, and radiation. A novel robotic inspection system focusing on stress corrosion cracking capable of in-situ surface composition characterization and crack detection is under development. The delivery system, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for surface composition, and ultrasonic guided waves for crack detection are summarized herein.
