Dry storage is one of the ways to store spent fuel in the middle of the reactor, which can effectively alleviate the pressure of the storage on the spent fuel pool of nuclear power plant. This paper tries to combine the site of dry storage facilities and the design characteristics to explain and discuss the safety evaluation method under the accident condition, from the mechanical analysis, critical safety, the decay heat removal, the shielding design and so on. Then according to the operating procedures and the accident condition that may be occurred, put forward some possible ways of monitoring and measures of safety protection should be added.
