制御材に炭化ホウ素(B$$_{4}$$C)を用いている原子炉(福島第一原子力発電所等)では、酸化物の約2倍の硬度を持つホウ化物が生成されているため、金属,酸化物及びホウ化物を判別しながら燃料デブリを取り出すのが効率的である。本報告は、レーザー誘起ブレークダウン分光法(LIBS)を用いた元素分析を用いて、金属,酸化物及びホウ化物を判別し、硬度計測方法への適用性を評価した。BWRの炉心溶融・移行挙動を解明するためのプラズマ加熱試験体(CMMR試験体)を用いた。測定は、EPMAによる試験体表面の元素マッピング情報および半定量情報を基に測定箇所を選定した後に、LIBS計測結果とビッカース硬度を比較した。その結果、Zrの結合状態に由来するLIBS蛍光発光強度の変化が確認され、材料硬度評価手法への応用が示唆された。

Since the hardness of fuel debris containing boride from B$$_{4}$$C pellet in control rod is estimated to be two times higher as that of oxide, such as UO$$_{2}$$ and ZrO$$_{2}$$, it is necessary to select the efficient and appropriate operation for removal of fuel debris formed in the severe accident of nuclear power plants. We focused on the characteristics of LIBS, an innovative rapid chemical in-situ analysis technology that enables simultaneous detection of B, O, and other metal elements in fuel debris. Simulated solidified melt specimens were obtained in the plasma heating tests (CMMR-0/-2, performed by JAEA) of simulated fuel assembly (ZrO$$_{2}$$ is used to simulated UO$$_{2}$$ pellet, other materials such as stainless steel, B$$_{4}$$C are same as fuel assembly). The LIBS signals of (B/O)/Zr ratio showed good linear relationship with Vickers hardness. This technique can be also applied as in-situ assessment tool for elemental composition and Vickers hardness of metal-oxide-boride materials.
