Title: Statistical methods to study consistency between declared and measured values on waste packages
Authors: Luan Jaupi - CNAM (France) [presenting]
Abstract: Very precise technical and operational specifications are provided for the management of radioactive waste. For each manufactured waste package, the producer determines the activities of radionuclides that are present in the package, commonly called declared activities. During the storage process, compliance checks are performed on some packages and radioactivity measurements are made, called measured activities. Statistical methods are considered which are used to conclude consistency between declared and measured values on waste packages. To achieve this aim, we propose the use of different statistical methods: statistical bounds, regression analysis, hypothesis testing and analysis of recoveries.
