|Abstract:||A dry storage for RBMK spent fuel is under construction at the Ignalina site in Lithuania. Spent fuel will be stored in a special model of casks, called CONSTOR, similar to the CASTOR used for PWR spent fuel, but having a concrete shield instead of cast iron. This paper will report on a feasibility study performed in order to assess the possibility of monitoring the movements of casks in the dry storage (and in particular entry/exit with discrimination of empty/full casks) using conventional slab neutron monitors. The paper will present a preliminary assessment based on Monte Carlo calculations and some measurements done on real casks in order to validate the calculations.|
