Abstract NAC International has used the SCALE Code Package extensively for transport and storage cask design. This includes the design of the NAC-STC dual purpose cask, the ENSA-DPT dual purpose cask as well as design modifications to the NAC-LWT cask. The NAC-LWT is a legal weight truck cask that was originally designed to transport one pressurized water reactor (PWR) fuel assembly or two boiling water reactor (BWR) fuel assemblies. Recently, this cask has been modified to transport up to 42 materials test reactor (MTR) fuel elements. This paper discusses the use of the SCALE package in performing a source term analysis of MTR fuel and shielding analysis of the NAC-LWT cask in support of a 10 CFR Part 71 license amendment for MTR fuel contents.
