Code Case N-670 “Use of Ductile Cast Iron Conforming to ASTM A874/A 874M-98 or JIS G5504-1992 for Transport Containments, Section III, Division 3” which permits use of ductile cast iron for transport containments of spent nuclear fuel was revised to the Code Case N-670-1, “Use of Ductile Cast Iron Conforming to ASTM A874/A 874M-98 or JIS G5504-2005 for Transport and Storage Containments, Section III, Division 3”. Items revised were as follows: (a) Scope was expanded to use for transport and storage, and changed to conform year edition of JIS G5504, (b) The elongation requirement was deleted form the code case to reflect the change of year edition of JIS G5504, (c) Temperature condition of −40 °C was clearly provided for fracture toughness test, (d) Design fatigue curve was re-established, (e) External pressure chart was re-established. Technical basis of the revised code case are described in this paper.
