## Critical Limit Development For 21 PWR Waste Package

This calculation uses regression (CLReg V1.0 computer code) and non-parametric statistical methods, as specified in References 1 and 12, to develop the critical limit for the 21 Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) spent nuclear fuel (SNF) waste package (WP) in the proposed geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. The critical limit is a limiting value of the effective neutron multiplication factor at which a WP configuration is considered potentially critical.
