照射済高速炉燃料の加熱試験(2773K, 2973K及び3173K)により放出したFP等が沈着したサンプリングパーツにおける核種分析結果等に基づき、高速炉燃料からのFP等の放出速度を評価した。その結果、FP核種の放出速度は、従来の軽水炉燃料で得られている知見と同等または低い値となる傾向を示した。また、燃料組成については、先行研究結果で得られた軽水炉燃料におけるデータのばらつきの範囲内にあることがわかった。

In order to obtain the release rate coefficients from fuels for fast reactors, heating tests and the subsequent analyses of the fission products (FPs) and actinides released were carried out using samples of uranium-plutonium mixed oxide (MOX) fuel pellets irradiated at the experimental fast reactor Joyo. Three heating tests targeting temperatures of 2773, 2973 and 3173 K were conducted using an FP release behavior test apparatus equipped with a high frequency induction furnace and solid FP sampling systems consisting of a thermal gradient tube (TGT) and filters. Irradiated fuel pellets were placed into a tungsten crucible, then loaded into the induction furnace. The temperature was raised continuously at a heating rate of 10 K/s to the targeted temperature and maintained for 500 s in a flowing argon gas atmosphere. The FPs and actinides released from the MOX fuels and deposited in TGT and filters were quantified by $$gamma$$-ray spectrometry and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) analysis. Based on the analysis, the release rates of radionuclides from MOX fuels for FR were obtained and compared with literature data for light water reactor (LWR) fuels. The release rate coefficients of FPs obtained in this study were found to be similar to or lower than the literature values for LWR fuels. It was also found that the data of release rate coefficient for actinides were within the range of variation of literature values for LWR fuels.
