In this paper, the radiological consequences of a catastrophic rupture of an HLW tank in a sub-vault of the AWTF have been studied. The postulated accident has been analysed assuming two phases, namely the accident phase and the recovery phase. Radiation dose to public through important pathways resulting from this postulated accident has been evaluated. Total effective whole body dose of 0.94 mSv has been estimated.
