We estimated environment assisted cracking of zirconium such as the unclear fuel dissolver in spent unclear fuel solution and considered the cold simulated solution with substituted similar oxidization ions for trans-uranium (TRU) and fission products (FP) and difference between the cold simulated solution and the hot spent unclear fuel. In addition, we considered radiation effect of $$gamma$$ ray under irradiation of cobalt-60 to simulate closely the dissolver condition. In this report, we confirmed that the cold simulated solution is appropriate solution to substitute for the spent nuclear fuel solution and radiation of $$gamma$$ ray doesn't accelerate environment assisted cracking of zirconium.
