The Development Status of Castor Ductile Cast Iron Transport Storage and Final Disposal Casks in the F.R.G.
If the name “CASTOR” is used, then it generally denotes the production process for a special development line of casks, as the word contains the initials of “CASTING, TRANSPORT and STORAGE”.
The origin lies in the year 1975, when GNS designed the first transport casks based on ductile cast iron.
suitability for serial production of significant numbers of casks
homogeneous body without welds
good shock resistance combined with high fracture toughness at low temperatures
high thermal conductivity
In the following presentation, the experimental background and the current development status are explained.
