ABSTRACT
Radioactive material is used in the various fields. The numbers of transport for radioactive material have been gradually increased in both domestic and international regions. The safety of the cask should be secured to safely transport of radioactive material. The Korean atomic law and the IAEA safety standards prescribe regulations for the safe transport of radioactive material. The cask for spent fuel is comprised of the body and the impact limiter. In this study, the empirical equation of the cask impact force was proposed based on the dimensional analysis. Using this empirical equation the characteristics of the impact limiter were analyzed. The results are also validated by comparing with the previous results of the impact area method and the finite element analysis. The present method can be used to predict the impact force of the cask.
