Analysis of transport behaviors of cesium and iodine in VERDON-2 experiment for chemical model validation

Shiotsu, Hiroyuki; Ito, Hiroto*; Ishikawa, Jun; Sugiyama, Tomoyuki; Maruyama, Yu

The VERDON-2 experiment for FPs transport in steam environment was analyzed with the mechanistic FPs transport code incorporating thermodynamic chemical equilibrium model in order to assess its predictive capability for transport behavior of key FPs, especially for highly volatile FPs such as Cs and I. The present analysis reproduced well the Cs deposition profile obtained from the experiment, which revealed that Cs was transported as CsOH in early phase of FP release from fuel, and then formed Cs$$_{2}$$MoO$$_{4}$$ after increasing Mo release. On the other hand, the deposition peak of I was predicted to appear at 720 K, which was significantly higher than the experimental result at 600 K. This discrepancy was potentially caused by the following two points: lack of the other stable species in thermodynamics database for thermodynamic chemical equilibrium model, or failure of chemical equilibrium assumption for iodide species.
