Abstract: Specific activities (concentrations) of fission products (FP) and activation products in spent fuel elements of the RBMK-1500 reactor were calculated using SCALE 5 computer code. Different burnup (5.1-21.0 MWd/kg) fuel assemblies were experimentally investigated. Activities of radionuclides present in the coolant water of storage cases of defective fuel elements were experimentally measured and analyzed. Experimental results provide a basis for a quantitative analysis of radionuclide release from spent fuel o…
