ANNOTATION:

The influence of heavy radiation exposure is considered as an essential criterion for its quality assessment used to
demonstrate the safety of intermediate storage under controlled conditions and subsequent final disposal of the
waste. Earlier calculations covering a time period of up to 104 years allowed to identify the maximum beta- and
gamma-radiation induced dose loads for borosilicate glass (BSS) of a basic composition specifically designed to vitrify
liquid HLW from ODC MCC [1]. This study evaluates potential feasibility of applying an accelerated proton beam to
simulate radiation damage according to the type of beta-gamma effects produced on the BSS and investigates the
consequences of such effects on its properties which is seen as a distinctive feature of this research.


Keywords: radioactive waste, borosilicate glass, radiation resistance, computational modeling, absorbed dose, cyclotron.
