The prescription for initial and final conditions for a thermal accident for Type B packages is different for each of the regulations governing Type B packages for the transportation of radioactive material. This paper presents an analytical method for estimating the effect of the boundary conditions on post-fire peak internal package temperatures. Results are given for several boundary conditions for a Type B, drum-type package.
