Standard Practice for Calculation of Average Energy Per Disintegration (E) for a Mixture of Radionuclides in Reactor Coolant
|Publication Date:||1 June 2010|
significance And Use:
This practice is useful for the determination of the average energy per disintegration of the isotopic mixture found in the reactor-coolant system of a nuclear reactor (1).
1.1 This practice applies to the calculation of the average energy per disintegration (E-) for a mixture of radionuclides in reactor coolant water.
1.2 The microcurie (µCi) is the standard unit of measurement for this standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
