Casks for transportation and storage are necessary for the handling of spent fuel elements and other radioactive waste. These casks must provide sufficient shielding against nuclear radiation, safe confinement even under severe hypothetical mechanical and thermal accident conditions and assurance of the subcriticality of the content under these conditions. Since more than 20 years ductile cast iron is established as a well qualified and proven material for the fabrication of the cask body of the CASTOR and MOSAIK type casks.
