More than firefighters worked for hours to contain the blaze involving eight cars with numerous hazardous chemicals including hydrochloric acid, acetic acid, propylene. AbstractTwo- and three-dimensional thermal models of a Nuclear Assurance Corporation Legal Weight Truck (NAC-LWT) cask were constructed using the PATRAN commercial finite element package. The two-dimensional model included the effect of radial stiffeners in the package’s external neutron shield but the three-dimensional model did not.
