    Abstract

    A method is presented for the calculation of the radioactivity inventories of components in the coolant circuit of a nuclear power plant. The study concentrated on power plants with boiling water reactors of General Electric BWR/6 type. The model accounts for the transport of fission products and activation products between different components, as well as the exchange of material between the interior surfaces of a component and the bulk coolant in this component. A simple point-kernel shielding calculation is applied to evaluate the radiation field outside the components.
