ANNOTATION:

The article presents methods and a general survey procedure for storage facilities with radioactive waste generated during the operation of uranium-graphite reactors. It presents the experience from the application of different survey methods and relevant findings. The paper describes the key areas for further improvement of the survey methods, including the results from the mock-up tests based on various methods applied for arranging penetrations in the radioactive waste volume providing access to the bottom waste layers. The approaches presented in the article can be adapted to explore other storage facility types arranged during nuclear decommissioning.
