This paper addresses the analytical methods used to determine the response of a dry storage spent fuel cask to hypothetical loading. Because of the sensitive nature of the topic under discussion, the response of the cask is described in qualitative terms, and the paper is intentionally vague on the parameters and results. This research was sponsored by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Spent Fuel Project Office. The work was performed under contract from the Sandia National Laboratory (SNL), Transportation Risk and Packing organization. The analytical effort was performed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) facilities with loading specified by SNL.
