Coated fuel particle (CFP) is one of important factors attributing to the inherent safety feature of high temperature engineering test reactor (HTTR). However, the random arrangement of CFPs makes the simulation more complicated, becoming one of the factors affects the accuracy of the HTTR criticality calculations. In this study, an explicit random model for CFPs arrangement, namely realized random packing (RRP), was developed for the whole core of HTTR using a Monte-Carlo MCNP6 code. The effect of random placement of CFPs was investigated by making a comparison between the RRP and conventional uniform models. The results showed that the RRP model gave a lower excess reactivity than that of the uniform model, and the more number of fuel columns loading into the core, the greater the difference in excess reactivity between the RRP and uniform models. For example, the difference in excess reactivity increased from 0.07 to 0.17%$$Delta$$k/k when the number of fuel column increased from 9 to 30. Regarding the control rods position prediction, the RRP showed the results, which were closer to experiment than the uniform model. In addition, the difference in control rods position between the RRP and uniform models also increases from 12 to 17 mm as increasing number of fuel columns from 19 to 30.

In this study, the effect of topsoil removal measure and fertilizer application on radiocesium uptake by rice plants was investigated over a four-year period. The results indicate that the effect of topsoil removal measure on the accumulation of radiocesium in rice plants was effective. We summarized four year's data to further confirm that potassium and nitrogen fertilizers had an opposite effect on the accumulation of radiocesium in rice plants. Increasing potassium and reducing nitrogen fertilizer conditions tended to inhibit the radiocesium uptake by rice plants.

MuSEUM is an international collaboration aiming at a new precise measurement of the muonium hyperfine structure at J-PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex). Utilizing its intense pulsed muon beam, we expect a ten-fold improvement for both measurements at high magnetic field and zero magnetic field. We have developed a sophisticated monitoring system, including a beam profile monitor to measure the 3D distribution of muonium atoms to suppress the systematic uncertainty.

The gyroscopic g factor, $$g'$$, of FeCo nanogranules embedded in a matrix of MgF$$_2$$ (FeCo-MgF$$_2$$) was determined by measuring the magnetic-field generation from a rotating sample due to the Barnett effect. The $$g'$$ value of the FeCo-MgF$$_2$$ is estimated to be 1.76 $$pm$$ 0.11. The orbital contribution to the magnetic moment in the FeCo nanogranules was found to be quite large compared with that in bulk FeCo, being consistent with a density-functional-theory calculation that shows that the orbital magnetic moment may increase at the FeCo/MgF$$_2$$ interfaces. The result suggests that the orbital magnetic moment is enhanced by symmetry breaking at the surface of the FeCo nanogranules.

A new design has been adopted for the steam generators (SG) tubes of the Japan Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) using double-wall tubes. This paper estimates and assesses the effectiveness of detecting defects in SG double-wall tubes of the JSFR by using combined high-frequency eddy current testing (ECT) and low-frequency remote field eddy current (RF-ECT) sensors. We confirm that the proposed hybrid ECT sensor is highly sensitive to small defects, fatigue cracks, and other defects even when located under support plates of tubes. The parameters of the hybrid ECT sensor are designed and optimized to detect small defects using accurate numerical simulations based on the finite element method (FEM), using an in-house developed code. The sensitivity and high performance of the hybrid ECT sensor was validated with experimental measurements.

The dose assessment for people living in preparation zones for the lifting of the evacuation order is needed with the return of the residents. However, it is difficult to assess exactly indoor external dose rate because the indoor distribution and infiltration pathways of radionuclides are unclear. This paper describes indoor and outdoor dose rates measured in eight houses in the difficult-to-return zone in Fukushima prefecture to examine the distribution of radionuclides in a house and the main infiltration pathway of radionuclides. In addition, it describes also dose rates calculated with a Monte Carlo photon transport code to understand thoroughly the measurements. These measurements and calculations provide that radionuclides can infiltrate mainly through ventilations, windows, and doors, and then deposit near the gaps, while those infiltrate hardly through sockets and air conditioning outlets.

本研究では、2種類のMn酸化物(トドロカイトとバーネサイト)が持つCs保持能を評価した。トドロカイトには、Csの吸着選択性がバーネサイトよりも高いサイトがあることがわかった。Cs初期濃度10$$^{-9}$$mol/Lで吸着させた後、吸着したCsを1M NaClとNH$$_{4}$$Clで脱離させたところ、約34%のCsが脱離せずにトドロカイトに残った。この値はバーネサイトに残ったCsの割合よりもずっと多かった。これらの結果は、トドロカイトが土壌中の放射性Csの固定に寄与することを強く示唆する。

The deformation behaviour of Ir$$_3$$Nb with stoichiometric and off-stoichiometric compositions has been investigated as functions of crystal orientation and deformation temperature. The critical resolved shear stress (CRSS) for (111)[$$overline{1}$$01] slip in stoichiometric Ir$$_3$$Nb exhibits a marginal temperature dependence at all temperatures with neither strong negative temperature dependence at low temperatures nor positive (anomalous) temperature dependence at high temperatures. The CRSS for (111)[$$overline{1}$$01] slip exhibits orientation dependence, neither. The [$$overline{1}$$01] dislocation dissociates into the anti-phase boundary (APB)-type scheme and is observed to be smoothly curved on the (111) slip plane at all temperatures, indicating the planar core structure. This is exactly what is known for the perfect dislocation in many pure FCC metals and is the reason for the observed FCC metal-like deformation behaviour of Ir$$_3$$Nb. The absence of yield stress anomaly in Ir$$_3$$Nb is discussed in terms of anisotropy in planar fault energies and elastic constants calculated by first principles calculations and experimentally determined in the present study.

The progress of the accident of Fukushima Daiichi NPS has been calculated by severe accident analysis codes, for example, MAAP, SAMPSON and so on. However, the effects of the seawater on thermal-hydraulic behavior have not been considered in these calculations, although the seawater was injected into the reactors to cool down the nuclear fuels. Saturated pool nucleate boiling heat transfer experiments with on NaCl solution, natural seawater and artificial seawater were performed to examine the effects of salts on boiling heat transfer. The experimental results indicated that boiling curves were well predicted with the Rohsenow correlation although large coalescent bubble formation was inhibited in the NaCl solution, natural seawater and artificial seawater experiments. However, calcium sulfate was deposited on the heat transfer surface in the experiments with artificial seawater. After the formation of a deposit layer, a slow surface-temperature excursion was initiated at a heat flux lower than the usual critical heat flux. We confirmed that the relationship between the salt concentrations of the artificial seawater in the bulk fluid and the vaporization rate at the surface at which the slow surface-temperature excursion initiated. This relationship suggested that if the salt concentration of the seawater exceeded 11 wt%, the deposition of calcium sulfate on the heat transfer surface occurred even if the heat flux was zero.

高速炉用に酸化物分散強化型(ODS)鋼燃料被覆管の開発が進められている。原子力機構では9および11Cr-ODS焼戻しマルテンサイト鋼をその候補材料としている。被覆管からの腐食生成物が再処理工程に及ぼす影響を見積もるためには、その腐食挙動を評価しておく必要がある。本研究では95$$^{circ}$$Cの硝酸溶液中で基礎的な浸漬試験および電気化学試験を系統的に実施した。腐食速度は有効Cr濃度(Cr$$_{rm eff}$$)および硝酸濃度の増加に対して、指数関数的に低下した。酸化性イオンの添加も腐食速度を低下させた。取得した分極曲線や浸漬後の表面観察結果より、低Cr$$_{rm eff}$$と希硝酸の組み合わせでは浸漬初期に活性溶解が発生し、腐食速度が大きくなることが分かった。一方、高Cr$$_{rm eff}$$と比較的高濃度の硝酸、あるいは酸化性イオンの添加の組み合わせは不働態化を促進し、腐食速度を低下させることが分かった。

This paper deals with the oxidation behavior of Zry-4 nuclear fuel cladding tubes in mixed steam_air atmospheres at temperatures of 1273 and 1473 K. The main goal is to study the oxidation kinetics of Zry-4 fuel cladding in dependence on the air fraction in steam in the range from 0 up to 100%. The purpose of this study is to provide experimental data suitable for an oxidation correlation applicable for thermomechanical analysis codes of nuclear power reactor under severe accidents. The influence of the air addition in steam on parameters of Zry-4 kinetic equation has been quantified using the results of weight gain measurements. At 1273 K, both pre-transient and post-transient regimes were treated. The results of weight gain measurements showed a strong dependence of the Zry-4 oxidation kinetics on the air fraction in steam, especially at 1473 and at 1273 K in the post-transient regime.

Study on a unified criterion for preventing plastic strain accumulation due to long distance travel of temperature distribution

The prevention of excessive deformation by thermal ratcheting is important in the design of high-temperature components of fast breeder reactors (FBR). As a result of experimental study that simulated the fast breeder reactor vessel nearby the coolant surface, it was reported that long distance traveling of temperature distribution causes new type of thermal ratcheting, even if there is no primary stress. In this paper, we propose a simple screening criterion to prevent continuous accumulation of plastic strain derived from long distance traveling of temperature distribution. The major cause of this ratcheting mechanism is lack of residual stress that brings shakedown behavior at the center of yielding area. Because the residual stresses are derived from constraint against the elastic part, we focused on the distance from the center of yielding area to the elastic region. So, the proposed criterion restricts the axial length of the area with full-section yield state, which is the double of the above distance. We validated the proposed criterion based on finite element analyses using elastic-perfectly plastic material. As the result of the validation analyses, we confirmed that the accumulation of the plastic strain saturates before 2nd cycles in the cases that satisfy the proposed criterion, regardless of the shape of temperature distribution.

Various methods were employed to measure the austenite volume fraction in a 1.5Mn-1.5Si-0.2C steel. It has been confirmed that the volume fractions determined by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy/electron back scatter diffraction, X-ray diffraction and neutron diffraction exhibit a general trend to become larger in this order, although the values obtained by X-ray and neutron diffraction are similar in the present steel because austenite is relatively stable. The austenite volume fractions determined by diffraction methods have been found to be affected by the measuring specimen direction, i.e., texture, even by applying the conventional correcting procedure. To avoid this influence, it is recommended to measure both of volume fraction and texture simultaneously using neutron diffraction. Although synchrotron X-ray shows higher angle resolution, its small incident beam size brings poor statistic reliability. The influence of texture cannot be avoided for transmission Bragg edge measurement, either, which must be overcome to realize 2D or 3D volume fraction mapping.

ウランの核分裂生成物の一つである$$^{107}$$Pdは、半減期が約650万年と長く、長期間に渡り放射線を放出して人体に影響を及ぼす可能性があることから、高レベル放射性廃液(HLLW)中の存在量を正確に把握する必要がある。しかし、これまでその存在量の実測報告例はない。本研究では、遠隔・非接触分離が可能なレーザー誘起光還元法のHLLWへの適用を念頭に、HLW模擬液を用いて種々の分離条件がPd回収率に与える影響を検討した。Pdの回収率は、還元剤として作用するエタノール濃度、レーザー光の照射時間とパルスエネルギーに依存し、それぞれ40%、20分、100mJとした場合に60%となった。また、Pd濃度0.24$$mu$$g mL$$^{-1}$$から24$$mu$$g mL$$^{-1}$$の広い濃度範囲において、主要な放射能源やスペクトル干渉源となる元素を99.5%以上の割合で除去し、Pdを高純度に分離できることを明らかにした。本条件によれば、レーザー誘起光還元法はHLLWなど実際の放射性廃棄物に含まれる$$^{107}$$PdのICP-MS測定前処理法として、十分に適用可能である。

近年、重陽子加速器を使った大強度中性子源が様々な応用に対して提案されている。このような中性子源の設計のためには、高精度かつ広範な重陽子核データライブラリが必要不可欠である。それゆえ、我々はDEURACS (DEUteron-induced Reaction Analysis Code System)という、重陽子入射反応の解析と理論予測用の統合コードシステムを開発している。本研究では、$$(d,xn)$$反応の解析をこれまでよりも高い100MeV近傍まで拡張した上、DEURACSを80および100MeVにおける$$(d,xd)$$反応にも適用した。その結果、DEURACSの計算値は$$(d,xn)$$および$$(d,xd)$$反応の二重微分断面積の実験値を良く再現した。

近年、核融合マテリアルの損傷の研究、ホウ素中性子捕捉療法、医療用放射性核種生成等の中性子源として、重陽子入射反応の利用が考えられている。しかし、入射重陽子エネルギー60MeVを超える領域では、重陽子入射反応の理論モデルの検証に必要な実験値はほとんどない。そこで、本研究では、大阪大学核物理研究センター(RCNP)において、100MeVの重陽子入射によるリチウム、ベリリウム及び炭素の中性子生成二重微分断面積(DDX)の測定を行った。測定角度は、0$$^{circ}$$から25$$^{circ}$$の間の6角度とし、飛行時間法により中性子エネルギーを導出した。中性子検出器に、大きさの異なる3台の液体有機シンチレータNE213(直径及び厚さが2インチ, 5インチ, 10インチ)を用い、中性子の飛行距離をそれぞれ7, 24, 74mとした。中性子検出効率は、SCINFUL-QMDコードの計算により導出した。実験結果から、中性子エネルギー強度分布は、重陽子入射エネルギーの半分のエネルギーにおいて、重陽子ブレークアップ過程に起因するなだらかなピーク構造を持つことがわかった。また、PHITSによる計算値は、理論モデルの不備から実験値をよく再現しないことがわかった。

Accurate neutron capture cross section data of $$^{126}$$Sn, which is one of the most important long-lived fission products (LLFPs), is required in the study of transmutation of radioactive waste. However, there is only one experimental data at the thermal energy. A $$^{126}$$Sn sample for a nuclear data experiment contaminated with a large amount of tin stable isotopes, $$^{115, 117-120, 122, 124}$$Sn, because these stable isotopes also have fission yields. These isotopes have large effects on neutron-capture cross-section measurements for $$^{126}$$Sn. To obtain accurate cross-section data for $$^{126}$$Sn, a series of neutron-capture cross-section measurements of all the tin stable isotopes are required. Therefore, the measurements of all tin stable isotopes have been started with Accurate Neutron-Nucleus Reaction measurement Instrument (ANNRI) of Materials and Life science experimental Facility (MLF) in Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). In this presentation, preliminary results of the neutron-capture cross-section measurements of $$^{120, 122, 124}$$Sn are reported in the neutron energy region from 10 meV to 2 keV.

The latest version of the general purpose file JENDL-4.0 was released in 2010 with enhancing data of fission products and minor actinides. After that, the neutron energy range of JENDL-4.0 were extended up to 200 MeV adding proton induced reaction data. They were compiled as JENDL-4.0/HE and released in 2015. An activation cross section library for decommission of nuclear reactor, JENDL/AD-2016, is under development and will be released by 2017. It will contain neutron reaction data for approximately 300 nuclides in energy range of $$10^{-5}$$ eV to 20 MeV including isomer production cross sections. Evaluation of nuclear data for the next version of the general purpose file is also in progress. It is planned to be released by 2022. Several new evaluations mainly for fission products that had not been updated in JENDL-4.0 were already done. Data for light nuclei and structure material will be updated. Minor actinides data are still important to develop transmutation system of nuclear waste. They will be updated using new measurements especially done in J-PARC. Status of the JENDL project in developing the general and special purpose files will be presented.

The Hauser-Feshbach codes that include a pre-equilibrium model have been playing for years a central role in producing evaluated nuclear reaction data files. The codes, such as Empire, TALYS, CCONE, and CoH$$_{3}$$, have been and are still actively upgraded in order to better understand nuclear reaction mechanisms by sharing and exchanging theoretical knowledge as well as computational techniques between actors involved in their development. Albeit the framework of the model codes aforementioned is quite similar, implementation of the reaction models as well as computational techniques adopted may produce some differences in the calculated results. The IAEA Nuclear Data Section conducts one of such inter-organizational collaborations, and defined some exercises to compare the Hauser-Feshbach codes developed for nuclear data evaluations, with a particular focus on the actinide evaluations. We report here the results of Hauser-Feshbach calculations for neutron induced reactions on actinide nuclei using the input parameters defined in the IAEA report [Capote et al., INDC-NDS-0654 (2014)], and discuss the differences among these codes.

J-PARC物質・生命科学実験施設ANNRIビームラインのデータ収集系更新作業が行われた。MLFのビームパワーは2008年に比較して2015年には20倍以上となり、ビーム量の増大によりビームラインユーザーはより高統計の実験データを取得できるようになった。ビームパワー増大に対応するため、ANNRIにおけるGe検出器アレイのデータ収集システムが更新された。データ収集システムは同時に、中性子全断面積測定のために整備されているLi glass検出器の信号取得のためにも用いられる予定である。コミッショニング実験が0.1mm厚の金サンプルを用いてJ-PARCの500kW陽子ビームを用いて行われた。捕獲断面積および全断面積測定両方について飛行時間法の適用性が試験された。Ge検出器アレイについて、ADCおよびTDCの非線形性、エネルギー分解能、多チャンネルコインシデンスおよび不感時間の性能が測定された。Ge検出器の不感時間は従来のデータ収集システムに比較して、少しのエネルギー分解能劣化を許容すれば1/4になっていた。

There is a serious gap between required accuracy and current accuracy on nuclear data for developing innovative nuclear reactor systems. To bridge this gap, an international joint activity entitled Improving Nuclear Data Accuracy of $$^{241}$$Am and $$^{237}$$Np capture cross sections (INDA) has being performed under WPEC. In this joint study, the forefront knowledge of energy dependent cross section measurements, spectrum averaged experiments, relevant nuclear structure data, and evaluations are intended to be integrated on the capture cross sections of $$^{241}$$Am and $$^{237}$$Np. From the joint study, it was shown that integration of knowledge from the independent specialities enables us not only to crosscheck between data obtained by different techniques but also to improve the measurement accuracy of each other.

We carried out Monte Carlo calculation to provide energy resolution of pulsed neutron beam for TOF measurements in the KURRI-LINAC pulsed neutron facility. The calculations were performed for moderated neutron flux at the energy range from 0.01 eV to 20 MeV. As the result, we obtained the energy resolutions ($$Delta$$E/E) in the epi-thermal region. For example, the energy resolutions were 1.0% in the neutron energy of 1.0 eV, 1.1% in 100.0 eV and 1.7% in 1.0 keV.

For the accuracy improvement of nuclear data of minor actinides and long-lived fission products in AIMAC project, high quality data of the isotopic composition of samples are indispensable. The objective of this research is to obtain the isotopic composition data of samples contributing to the analysis of nuclear cross-section measurement data by mass spectrometry etc. In this study, we analyzed the isotopic composition of two Am samples ($$^{241}$$ Am sample and $$^{243}$$ Am sample) mainly by the thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS). In addition to the TIMS, Am samples were also analyzed by $$alpha$$-spectrometry. In the analysis by both methods, the impurities such as $$^{239}$$Pu, $$^{240}$$Pu, $$^{242}$$Cm and$$^{244}$$Cm were also observed. The results of these analyses are presented together with the developed high precision analytical method.

Along with the global increase of applications using nuclear materials (NM), the requirements to nuclear security and safeguards for the development of effective characterization methods are growing. Mass verification of NM of low radioactivity is performed using passive non-destructive analysis (NDA) techniques whereas destructive analysis (DA) techniques are applied for accurate analysis of nuclide composition. In addition to the characterization by passive NDA, a sample can be further characterized by active NDA techniques. An active neutron NDA system equipped with a pulsed neutron generator is currently under development for studies of NDA methods. Among the methods DGS uses the detection of decay $$gamma$$-rays from fission products (FP) to determine ratios of fissile nuclides present in the sample. A proper evaluation of such $$gamma$$-ray spectra requires integration of nuclear data such as fission cross-sections, fission yields, half-lives, decay chain patterns, and decay $$gamma$$-ray emission probabilities. The development of the DGS technique includes experimental verification of some nuclear data of fissile materials, as well as development of the device. This presentation will be a brief introduction of the active neutron NDA project and an explanation of the DGS development program.

Evaluation of neutron total and capture cross sections on $$^{99}$$Tc in the unresolved resonance region

岩本 信之; 片渕 竜也*

EPJ Web of Conferences (Internet), 146, p.02049_1 - 02049_4, 2017/09

The reliable nuclear data on Technetium-99 ($$^{99}$$Tc) are indispensable for wide energy range up to a few MeV, in order to develop environmental load reducing technology. Nevertheless, it is found that the total cross sections of evaluated libraries show large difference in the energies above the resolved resonance to 1 MeV due to no available experimental data. The total cross section was calculated by the coupled-channels optical model. In order to constrain the total cross section in the unresolved resonance region we adopted neutron strength function derived from the resolved resonance data of JENDL-4.0, together with experimental data above 1 MeV. The calculation of capture cross section was done by using the CCONE code. The resonance spacing was derived from the resonance data and used to fix the level density parameter. The present evaluation suggests that the total cross section is different from that of JENDL-4.0. In this presentation, the obtained total and capture cross sections will be compared and discussed with those of evaluated libraries.

The use of a short flight path is effective in the neutron resonance analysis. On the other hand, such a short path would reduce a time resolution in Time-Of-Flight (TOF) measurements. In order to investigate the effect of neutron flight-path length, we carried out Neutron Resonance Transmission Analysis (NRTA) experiments with a short neutron flight path at the Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute - Linear Accelerator (KURRI-LINAC). In measurements of Neutron Resonance Densitometry, the quantity of nuclear materials is determined from TOF spectra obtained in the neutron energy range below 30 eV. Performing NRTA experiments with a 7-m flight path at KURRI-LINAC, we examined effects of flight path and pulse width on a TOF spectrum. A resonance dip of $$^{183}$$W at 27 eV in a TOF spectrum was successfully observed with an electron pulse width less than 2 $$mu$$s. In this presentation, we will discuss importance of the pulse width and short flight path to study design of a compact TOF facility to quantify nuclear materials.


Important comments on KERMA factors and DPA cross-section data in ACE files of JENDL-4.0, JEFF-3.2 and ENDF/B-VII.1

これまでに核データライブラリーの公式のACEファイルに内蔵されている多くの核種のKERMA係数、DPA断面積が以下の理由で異なっていることを指摘してきた。(1)核データの誤り、(2)NJOYのバグ、(3)非常に大きなヘリウム生成断面積、(4)mf6 mt102データ、(5)2次粒子のエネルギー角度分布データがないこと。今回、JENDL-4.0, ENDF/B-VII.1, JEFF-3.2のKERMA係数, DPA断面積をより詳細に調べた。その結果、核データリブラリー間でのKERMA係数、DPA断面積の差の新たな原因を見出した。新たな原因は、以下に分類される。2次荷電粒子データがないこと、2次$$gamma$$線データがないこと、妥当でない2次$$gamma$$線スペクトル、妥当でない粒子生成収率、捕獲反応をmf12-15 mt3データに格納すること。これらの原因のいくつかはNJOYコードが対応していないことによると思われる。問題のあるJENDL-4.0, ENDF/B-VII.1, JEFF-3.2のACEファイルは本研究をもとに改訂すべきである。

Improvement of gross theory of beta-decay for application to nuclear data

EPJ Web of Conferences (Internet), 146, p.12003_1 - 12003_4, 2017/09


A theoretical study of $$beta$$ decay and delayed neutron has been carried out with a global $$beta$$-decay model: the gross theory. In a fissioning nucleus, neutrons are produced by the $$beta$$ decay of neutron-rich fission fragments. This is known as delayed neutrons. The gross theory of the $$beta$$ decay is based on a consideration of the sum rule of the $$beta$$-strength function, and gives reasonable results of $$beta$$-decay rates and delayed neutron in the entire nuclear mass region. We re-analyze and improve the theory on the strength functions and one-particle level densities. We focus on the spin-parity of decaying nucleus, and a hindrance treatment is introduced for the allowed transition on parity-mismatching nuclei. By using the improved gross theory, the ability of theoretically reproduction (and also prediction) on $$beta$$-decay rates, delayed-neutron emission probabilities, decay heat, will be discussed. In the process, we make a new code of the gross theory of $$beta$$- decay including the improved parts. We will show the code, which can be distributed for the nuclear data community.

The accurate knowledge of the neutron-induced fission cross-sections of actinides and other isotopes involved in the nuclear fuel cycle is essential for the design of advanced nuclear systems, such as Generation-IV nuclear reactors. Such experimental data can also provide the necessary feedback for the adjustment of nuclear model parameters used in the evaluation process, resulting in the further development of nuclear fission models. In the present work, the $$^{240}$$Pu(n,f) cross-section was measured at CERN n_TOF facility relative to the well-known $$^{235}$$U(n,f) cross section, over a wide range of neutron energies, from meV to almost MeV, using the time-of-flight technique and a set-up based on Micromegas detectors. This measurement was the first experiment to be performed at n_TOF new experimental area (EAR-2), which offers a significantly higher neutron flux compared to the already existing experimental area (EAR-1).Preliminary results as well as the experimental procedure, including a description of the facility and the data handling and analysis, are presented.

Monte Carlo (MC) simulations are an essential tool to determine fundamental features of a neutron beam, such as the neutron flux or the $$gamma$$ ray background, that sometimes can not be measured or at least not in every position or energy range. Until recently, the most widely used MC codes in this field had been MCNPX and FLUKA. However, the Geant4 toolkit has also become a competitive code for the transport of neutrons after the development of the native Geant4 format for neutron data libraries, G4NDL. In this context, we present the Geant4 simulations of the neutron spallation target of the n TOF facility at CERN, done with version 10.1.1 of the toolkit. The first goal was the validation of the intra-nuclear cascade models implemented in the code using, as benchmark, the characteristics of the neutron beam measured at the first experimental area (EAR1), especially the neutron flux and energy distribution, and the time distribution of neutrons of equal kinetic energy, the so-called Resolution Function. The second goal was the development of a Monte Carlo tool aimed to provide useful calculations for both the analysis and planning of the upcoming measurements at the new experimental area (EAR2) of the facility.

The Cosmological Lithium Problem refers to the large discrepancy between the abundance of primordial $$^7$$Li predicted by the standard theory of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis and the value inferred from the so-called "Spite plateau" in halo stars. A possible explanation for this longstanding puzzle in Nuclear Astrophysics is related to the incorrect estimation of the destruction rate of $$^7$$Be, which is responsible for the production of 95% of primordial Lithium. While charged-particle induced reactions have mostly been ruled out, data on the $$^7$$Be(n,$$alpha$$) and $$^7$$Be(n,p) reactions are scarce or completely missing, so that a large uncertainty still affects the abundance of $$^7$$Li predicted by the standard theory of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. Both reactions have been measured at the n_TOF facility at CERN, providing for the first time data in a wide neutron energy range._1

The CERN n_TOF neutron beam facility is characterized by a very high instantaneous neutron flux, excellent TOF resolution at the 185m long flight path (EAR-1), low intrinsic background and coverage of a wide range of neutron energies, from thermal to a few GeV. The overall efficiency of the experimental program and the range of possible measurements has been expanded with the construction of a second experimental area (EAR-2), located 20m on the vertical of the n_TOF spallation target. This upgrade, which benefits from a neutron flux 30 times higher than in EAR-1, provides a substantial extension in measurement capabilities, opening the possibility to collect data on neutron cross-section of isotopes with short half-lives or available in very small amounts. We will discuss the innovative features of the EAR-2 neutron beam that make possible to perform very challenging measurements on short-lived radioisotopes or sub-mg samples, out of reach up to now at other neutron facilities around the world. Finally, the future perspectives of the facility will be presented.

The neutron capture cross section of several key unstable isotopes acting as branching points in the s-process are crucial for stellar nucleosynthesis studies, but they are very challenging to measure due to the difficult production of sufficient sample material, the high activity of the resulting samples, and the actual (n,$$gamma$$) measurement, for which high neutron fluxes and effective background rejection capabilities are required. Capture cross section of $$^{147}$$Pm and $$^{171}$$Tm have been measured for time-of-flight measurements at the CERN n_TOF facility using the 19 and 185m beam lines. Activation experiments on the same $$^{147}$$Pm and $$^{171}$$Tm targets with a high-intensity 30 keV quasi-Maxwellian flux of neutrons will be performed using the SARAF accelerator and the Liquid-Lithium Target (LiLiT) in order to extract the corresponding Maxwellian Average Cross Section (MACS). The status of these experiments and preliminary results will be presented and discussed as well.

Three large high radioactivity particulate fragments, each several 100 $$mu$$m in diameter, have been recovered from the region immediately surrounding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Through the application of high-resolution electron and ion-beam methods, this work has sought to investigate the structure and composition of this fibrous surface morphology. By evaluating this, a potential material source can be determined, alongside important information relating to the conditions/events at the time of the reactor explosions and catastrophic release of radioactive materials. The results of this study show that the fibrous features associated with these large radiocesium-containing particles share a common elemental composition. With respect to the surrounding particle, the fibers are enriched in Si, Cl, and Fe, while depleted in both Zn and Al. Based on composition, these fibers are ascribed to thermal insulating material used within the plant, which was sufficiently heated during the loss of coolant incident at the plant to be incorporated into the molten ejecta material that rapidly solidified upon quenching in air. Elemental analysis of these fibers does not reveal any evidence of leaching or the presence of actinide materials.

福島第一原子力発電所事故で土壌に沈着した放射性セシウム($$^{134}$$Cs及び$$^{137}$$Cs)による外部被ばくに対する公衆の放射線安全性を確保するため、新生児, 1歳, 5歳, 10歳, 15歳及び成人が装着した個人線量計でモニタされる個人線量当量を、放射線輸送計算コードPHITSを用いて解析した。放射性セシウムは土壌中の特定の深さ(0.0, 0.5, 2.5, 5.0, 10.0及び50.0g/cm$$^2$$)に平板一様分布しているとし、各年齢の人体は精密人体数値模型により再現した。年齢別の個人線量当量の解析結果から、年齢が小さいほど個人線量当量の値が大きくなることが分かった。しかし、汚染環境中においても実用量である個人線量当量は防護量である実効線量をよく代表することと、地上100cm高さの周辺線量当量の値を超えないことが明らかになった。また、体積分布した線源に対する個人線量当量を導出する加重積分法により、福島で観測された指数分布線源による個人線量当量を解析したところ、解析値は福島で成人男性が装着した個人線量計により取得された実測値とよい一致を示した。

Magnetic properties of electron-doped LaCoO$$_3$$

We studied electron-doped LaCo$$_{1-y}$$Te$$^{6+}_{y}$$O$$_{3}$$ by magnetization measurements and neutron scattering. The effective Bohr magneton, estimated in the Curie-Weiss fitting around room temperature, is independent of $$y$$. This suggests that magnetic Co$$^{3+mathrm{(HS)}}$$, not nonmagnetic Co$$^{3+mathrm{(LS)}}$$, is mainly replaced by doped magnetic Co$$^{2+mathrm{(HS)}}$$. At the lowest temperatures, a Brillouin-function-like saturating behavior persists in the magnetization curves even in the high-$$y$$ samples, and neither clear magnetic reflection nor magnetic dispersion is observed by neutron scattering. These indicate that magnetic correlation is very weak in contrast to the well-known hole-doped LaCoO$$_3$$ accompanied with the transition to ferromagnetic metal. However, we also found that the low-$$y$$ samples exhibit nonnegligible enhancement in saturated magnetization by $$sim$$2 $$mu_B$$/doped-electron. All these characteristics are discussed in the light of activation and inactivation of spin-state blockade.


Work hardening, dislocation structure, and load partitioning in lath-martensite determined by ${it in situ}$ neutron diffraction line profile analysis

${it in situ}$ neutron diffraction during tensile deformation of lath martensite steel containing 0.22 mass% of carbon, is performed using TAKUMI of J-PARC. The diffraction peaks at plastically deformed states exhibit asymmetries as the reflection of redistributions of the stress and dislocation densities/arrangements in lath-packets where the dislocation glides are favorable (soft packet) and unfavorable (hard packet). The dislocation density is as high as 10$$^{15}$$ m$$^{-2}$$ at the as-quenched state, and then during tensile straining, the load and the dislocation density become different between the two lath-packets. The dislocation character and arrangement vary also in the hard packet, but hardly change in the soft packet. The hard packet plays an important role in the high work hardening in martensite, which could be understood by taking into account not only the increase of the dislocation density but also the change in dislocation arrangement.


JASMINE Version 3による溶融燃料-冷却材相互作用SERENA2実験解析

日本原子力学会和文論文誌, 16(3), p.139 - 152, 2017/09

Among twelve FCI cases conducted in the OECD/NEA/CSNI/SERENA2 test series using two facilities, six steam explosion cases, five from TROI and one from KROTOS, were analyzed by JASMINE V.3. Major model parameters were categorized into "focused zone", a core part of interest, and "peripheral zone", the initial and boundary conditions given intentionally for each test case. For the former, base values established through past validation studies of JASMINE V.3 were applied. The code was modified to implement the measured distribution of entrained droplet size acquired in TROI-VISU. For the latter, melt release histories were given as a combination of time tables of jet diameter and release velocity that were estimated based on image data and transit timing data of the melt leading edge. The base values were shown to predict impulse responses of SERENA2 systematically with a reasonable error band. A statistical analysis based on the LHS method was performed. Uncertainty ranges were given based on measurement errors and past validation studies in the JASMINE development. Underlying mechanisms causing apparent differences in the mechanical energy conversion ratio between two facilities were studied from the view point of breakup length and trigger timing.

The electronic structures of U$$X_3$$ ($$X$$=Al, Ga, and In) were studied by photoelectron spectroscopy to understand the the relationship between their electronic structure and magnetic properties. The band structures and Fermi surfaces of UAl$$_3$$ and UGa$$_3$$ were revealed experimentally by angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES), and they were compared with the result of band structure calculations. The topologies of the Fermi surfaces and the band structures of UAl$$_3$$ and UGa$$_3$$ were explained reasonably well by the calculation, although bands near the Fermi level ($$E_mathrm{F}$$) were renormalized owing to the finite electron correlation effect. The topologies of the Fermi surfaces of UAl$$_3$$ and UGa$$_3$$ are very similar to each other, except for some minor differences. Such minor differences in their Fermi surface or electron correlation effect might take an essential role in their magnetism.

Proceedings of 17th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (NURETH-17) (USB Flash Drive), 14 Pages, 2017/09

The present paper introduces the recent outcome from the CIGMA experiments regarding containment vessel cooling, in which an external side of a vessel upper head was flooded by water. The test vessel was initially pressurized by steam and noncondensable gas (air and/or helium), and was subsequently cooled by pouring water to the outside of the vessel top. Similar experiments were performed by authors using air-steam binary system in the previous study, which showed several characteristic phenomena such as inverse temperature stratification. The experimental conditions were extended systematically in this study to investigate the effects of initial gas composition and distribution in a vessel. The measurement results indicated that natural circulation was significantly affected by distributions of each gas species. In particular, it was enhanced when the gas density became heavier after condensation on the vessel inner wall, while it was suppressed when the gas density became lighter, creating density stratification with helium-rich gas in the upper region. The results are explained by the simplified model.

JAEA has conducted a research program called ALPS-II program for advanced fuels of LWRs. In this program, the tests simulating a RIA and a LOCA have been performed on the high burnup advanced fuels irradiated in European commercial reactors. The failure limits of the high-burnup advanced fuels under RIA conditions have been obtained by the pulse irradiation tests at the NSRR in JAEA. The information about pellet fragmentation etc. during the pulse irradiations was also obtained from post-test examinations on the test rods after the pulse irradiation tests. As for the simulated LOCA test, integral thermal shock tests and high-temperature oxidation tests have been performed at the RFEF in JAEA. The fracture limits under LOCA and post-LOCA conditions etc. of the high-burnup advanced fuel cladding have been investigated, and it was found that in terms of these materials the fracture boundaries do not decrease and the oxidation does not significantly accelerate in the burnup level examined.

In the PUREX method for reprocessing of nuclear spent fuels, the HNO$$_{3}$$ media with high concentration is heated up to boiling point to dissolve fuels. The process solutions containing oxidizing metallic ions dissolved from spent fuels are very corrosive because of these high oxidizing activities, and the corrosion problem have appeared on the stainless steel concentrators and evaporators such as the intergranular corrosion of stainless steel. We focused how the change of solution composition and temperature on the corrosion rate of stainless steel under the operation condition of High-level Active Liquid West concentrator of reprocessing plant in Japan. The corrosion immersion tests and the electrochemical measurements were performed using R-SUS304ULC as stainless steel test samples and the HNO$$_{3}$$ solutions containing following oxidizing metallic ions. The corrosion rate increased caused by increasing of the HNO$$_{3}$$ and metallic ions concentration. The cathodic polarization curves showed that the current density increased with increasing of the concentration of HNO$$_{3}$$ and metallic ions. Moreover, the results showed that the contribution of Ru and V which can maintain the acceleration effect on the corrosion because of high re-oxidation rate after the reductant with the corrosion reaction in the solution.

J-PARC 3GeVシンクロトロン(RCS)は、設計出力1MWの大強度陽子加速器である。このRCSで3GeVまで加速された陽子ビームは、リング内の8台のパルスキッカー電磁石で取り出しラインへ導き、物質生命科学実験施設や後段の加速器へ供給されている。しかしながら、この電磁石の電磁回路的なリンギングにより時間的な磁場変調を生じており、取り出しビームが大きく変動していた。この変動は、中性子源標的の故障リスクの増大や後段加速器のビーム損失の増大を生じ、大きな課題である。特別な短パルスビームと各電磁石のタイミングスキャンを行い、取り出しビームの位置変動を測定することで、この磁場変調を実測し把握した。それを用いて各電磁石の磁場変調を抑制する最適なタイミングを求め、適用することで装置の改造を行うことなく要求以上の精度のビーム取り出しを実現した。さらにタイミングのずれを自動で測定し補正するシステムを導入し、安定化も実現した。この論文では、手法や成果を報告する。

We report a first, real-space, imaging of an orbital ordered structure on a cobalt-terminated surface of the well-studied heavy fermion compound CeCoIn$$_5$$. Within small tip-sample distances, the cobalt atoms on a cleaved (001) surface take on dumbbell shapes alternatingly aligned in the [100] and [010] directions in scanning tunneling microscopy topographies. First-principles calculations reveal that this staggered orbital order is triggered by enhanced on-site Coulomb interaction at the surface.

高レベル放射性廃棄物の地層処分において、処分坑道等の地下施設の掘削による応力再配分の影響により、坑道壁面周辺岩盤の水理・力学特性が顕著に変化する領域が生じる。このような領域を掘削損傷領域(Excavation Damaged Zone: EDZ)と呼ぶ。幌延深地層研究センターの350m調査坑道では、堆積軟岩である珪質泥岩を対象として、ボアホール・テレビューア観察、コア観察および透水試験を行い、坑道周辺のEDZの水理・力学特性を調査している。試験結果から、坑道掘削に起因して生じた引張割れ目の発達と透水係数の増大が認められたことから、坑道から0.2$$sim$$1.0mの範囲にEDZが発生したと推定した。これを理論的に検証するために、二次元の水理・力学連成解析を実施した。解析では、坑道掘削直後は掘削解放面を非排水条件、支保工設置後は排水条件とした。この結果、壁面から0.6$$sim$$1.4mの範囲まで引張破壊が生じる結果となり、原位置で観測されたEDZの範囲と概ね整合する結果が得られた。また、坑道掘削時の非排水挙動に伴う有効応力の低下が、原位置で確認された引張割れ目の形成や発達に寄与していることが示された。以上のことから、連成解析により、原位置のEDZの発生メカニズムを把握することができた。

バライト(重晶石, BaSO$$_{4}$$)は、溶解度が低く、安定性が非常に高い鉱物であり、周囲の環境が変化しても元素を保持し続けるため、有害元素を安定に隔離する鉱物として非常に有用である。本論文では、対象元素として、高い毒性を持ち、選択的な除去が難しく、有効な処理処分技術が乏しいセレンのオキソアニオン(セレン酸: SeO$$_{4}$$$$^{2-}$$,亜セレン酸: SeO$$_{3}$$$$^{2-}$$)に対して実験を行い、これらの元素の共沈過程を分子レベルで明らかにすることで、溶液中からこれらの元素を効率的に除去するための条件を最適化した。実験の結果、バライトへの亜セレン酸の分配には、鉱物表面への微量元素の吸着のしやすさ(=1化学的な親和性)と鉱物構造内での安定性(=2構造規制)の2つが、またセレン酸の分配には構造規制のみがそれぞれ強く働くことが示され、これらの条件を調整することで溶液からの80%以上の除去がセレン酸、亜セレン酸ともに達成された。

原子放射線の影響に関する国連科学委員会(UNSCEAR)が2008年に発表したレポートでは、公衆の宇宙線被ばく線量の世界平均値は年間0.38mSvであり、全自然放射線による被ばく線量の約16%を占めると結論づけている。しかし、この値は限られた実測から単純な仮定に基づいて推定した概算値であり、宇宙線強度の高度・緯度・経度に対する複雑な依存性や詳細な人口分布を考慮して評価した値ではない。そこで我々の研究グループでは、独自に開発した宇宙線強度計算モデルと様々なデータベースを組み合わせ、公衆の宇宙線被ばく線量の人口平均値や分散を世界230ヶ国 に対して詳細に評価し、その世界平均値を導出した。本稿では、宇宙線被ばくの概要を解説するとともに、その評価手法や評価結果を簡単に紹介する。

軽水炉のシビアアクシデント時、ボロンの影響を考慮した熱力学平衡計算によれば、燃料から放出されるCsの気相中での主な化学形の一つとして、CsBO$$_{2}$$(g)が生成すると予想されている。しかし、核燃料や核分裂生成物などの熱力学データを収めた編纂物によれば、これまで報告されているCsBO$$_{2}$$の蒸気圧データの不確かさのために、この解析に使用されたCsBO$$_{2}$$(g)の熱力学データの信頼性は乏しいと評価されている。そのため、信頼性の高いCsBO$$_{2}$$(g)の熱力学データを得ることを目的に、高温質量分析法によるCsBO$$_{2}$$の平衡蒸気圧測定を試みた。その結果、CsBO$$_{2}$$の平衡蒸気圧測定データを用いて、第二法則,第三法則処理により評価した気体CsBO$$_{2}$$の標準生成エンタルピー$$Delta$$$$_{f}$$H$$^{circ}$$$$_{298}$$(CsBO$$_{2}$$,g)は、それぞれ、-700.7$$pm$$10.7kJ/mol, -697.0$$pm$$10.6kJ/molとなり、過去に報告されている蒸気圧データを用いて得られた第二法則,第三法則処理による$$Delta$$$$_{f}$$H$$^{circ}$$$$_{298}$$(CsBO$$_{2}$$,g)の差異よりも小さくなったことから、これまでよりも信頼性の高い熱力学データを取得できたことが分かった。さらに、既存の$$Delta$$$$_{f}$$H$$^{circ}$$$$_{298}$$(CsBO$$_{2}$$,g)についても、本研究で得られた$$Delta$$$$_{f}$$H$$^{circ}$$$$_{298}$$(CsBO$$_{2}$$,g)の値と誤差の範囲で一致したことから、信頼性が高いことが分かった。

Unusual plastic deformation behavior in lath martensitic steel containing high dislocation density

Harjo, S.; 川崎 卓郎; 友田 陽*; Gong, W.

Materials Science Forum, 905, p.46 - 51, 2017/08

To understand the strengthening mechanism of a metallic material with high dislocation density, the plastic deformation behavior of lath martensite was studied by means of in situ neutron diffraction measurements during tensile deformations using a 22SiMn2TiB steel and a Fe-18Ni alloy. The characteristics of dislocation were analyzed and were discussed with the relation of stress-strain curves. The dislocation densities induced by martensitic transformation during heat-treatment in both materials were found to be originally as high as 10$$^{15}$$ m$$^{-2}$$ order, and subsequently to increase slightly by the tensile deformation. The parameter M value which displays the dislocation arrangement dropped drastically at the beginning of plastic deformation in both materials, indicating that the random arrangement became more like a dipole arrangement.

Microstructural change during hot compressive deformation at 700 $$^{circ}$$C followed by isothermal annealing for a Fe-32Ni austnitic alloy was monitored using ${it in situ}$ neutron diffraction. The evolution of deformation texture with 40% compression and its change to recrystallization texture during isothermal annealing were presented by inverse pole figures for the axial and radial directions. The change in dislocation density was tracked using the convolutional muli-profile whole profile fitting method. To obtain the fitting results with good statistics, at least 60 s time-slicing for the event-mode recorded data was needed. The average dislocation density in 60 s after hot compression was determined to be 2.8 $$times$$ 10$$^{14}$$ m$$^{-2}$$ that decreased with increasing of annealing time.

A spin-1/2 triangular-lattice Heisenberg antiferromagnet (TLHAF) is a prototypical frustrated quantum magnet, which exhibits remarkable quantum many-body effects that arise from the synergy between spin frustration and quantum fluctuation. The ground-state properties of a spin-1/2 TLHAF are theoretically well understood. However, magnetic excitations are less well understood and the theoretical consensus is limited. The experimental study of the magnetic excitations in spin-1/2 TLHAFs has also been limited. Here we show the whole picture of magnetic excitations in the spin-1/2 TLHAF Ba$$_{3}$$CoSb$$_{2}$$O$$_{9}$$ investigated by inelastic neutron scattering. Significantly different from the theory, the excitation spectra have a three-stage energy structure. The lowest first stage is composed of dispersion branches of single-magnon excitations. The second and third stages are dispersive continua accompanied by columnar continuum extending above 10 meV, which is six times larger than the exchange interaction J=1.67 meV. Our results indicate the necessity of a new theoretical framework.

ROSA/LSTF test and RELAP5 analyses on PWR cold leg small-break LOCA with accident management measure and PKL counterpart test

竹田 武司; 大津 巌

Nuclear Engineering and Technology, 49(5), p.928 - 940, 2017/08

An experiment using PKL was performed for the OECD/NEA PKL-3 Project as a counterpart to a previous test with LSTF on a cold leg small-break loss-of-coolant accident with an accident management measure in a PWR. The rate of steam generator secondary-side depressurization was controlled to achieve a primary depressurization rate of 200 K/h as a common test condition. In both tests, rapid recovery started in the core collapsed liquid level after loop seal clearing. Some discrepancies appeared between the LSTF and PKL test results for the core collapsed liquid level, the cladding surface temperature, and the primary pressure. The RELAP5/MOD3.3 code indicated a remaining problem in the prediction of primary coolant distribution. Results of uncertainty analysis for the LSTF test clarified the influences of the combination of multiple uncertain parameters on peak cladding temperature within the defined uncertain ranges.

Quantum phase transitions driven by rhombic-type single-ion anisotropy in the $$S$$=1 Haldane chain

The spin-1 Haldane chain is an example of the symmetry-protected-topological (SPT) phase in one dimension. Experimental realization of the spin chain materials usually involves both the uniaxial-type, $$D(S^z)^2$$, and the rhombic-type, $$E[(S^x)^2-(S^y)^2]$$, single-ion anisotropies. Here, we provide a precise ground-state phase diagram for a spin-1 Haldane chain with these single-ion anisotropies. Using quantum numbers, we find that the $$Z_2$$ symmetry breaking phase can be characterized by double degeneracy in the entanglement spectrum. Topological quantum phase transitions take place on particular paths in the phase diagram, from the Haldane phase to the large-$$E_x$$, large-$$E_y$$, or large-$$D$$ phases. The topological critical points are determined by the level spectroscopy method with a newly developed parity technique in the density matrix renormalization group, and the Haldane-large-$$D$$ critical point is obtained with an unprecedented precision, $$(D/J)_c$$=0.9684713(1). Close to this critical point, a small rhombic single-ion anisotropy $$|E|/Jll1$$ can destroy the Haldane phase and bring the system into a $$y$$-N$'e$el phase. We propose that the compound [Ni(HF$$_2$$)(3-Clpy)$$_4$$]BF$$_4$$ is a candidate system to search for the $$y$$-N$'e$el phase.

This paper presents a systematic study of spin and lattice dynamics in the quasi-one-dimensional spiral magnet CuBr$$_2$$, using Raman scattering in conjunction with infrared and neutron spectroscopy. Along with the development of spin correlations upon cooling, we observe a rich set of broad Raman bands at energies that correspond to phonon-dispersion energies near the one-dimensional magnetic wave vector. The low-energy bands further exhibit a distinct intensity maximum at the spiral magnetic ordering temperature.

中性子分光法を用いて、バルク及びナノ結晶パラジウム中の水素原子の振動状態を、広いエネルギー領域($$0 le hbar omega le 300$$meV)について調べた。バルクのパラジウム水素化物では、水素の振動励起は量子調和振動子(QHO)で大まかに記述された。一方、直径8nmのナノ結晶パラジウム水素化物では、付加的な振動励起が80meV以上のエネルギー領域に観測された。この付加的な振動励起のエネルギーと強度はQHOでは説明できず、非調和性の強いトランペット型ポテンシャルにおける振動と記述された。この付加的な励起は、表面効果により安定化されたサブ表面(表面下2-3層)の正四面体サイトに配置された水素原子の振動だと考えられる。本研究は、金属ナノ粒子中の水素の振動を明瞭に検知した初めての実験的研究である。

We demonstrate the generation of alternating spin current (SC) via spin-rotation coupling (SRC) using a surface acoustic wave (SAW) in a Cu film. Ferromagnetic resonance caused by injecting SAWs was observed in a Ni-Fe film attached to a Cu film, with the resonance further found to be suppressed through the insertion of a SiO$$_{2}$$ film into the interface. The intensity of the resonance depended on the angle between the wave vector of the SAW and the magnetization of the Ni-Fe film. This angular dependence is explicable in terms of the presence of spin transfer torque from a SC generated via SRC.

本発表では、BaileyのDouble-Doubleアルゴリズムを利用した4倍精度基本線形代数演算ライブラリ「BLAS」の高速化と、それを4倍精度固有値計算ルーチンに適用した際の計算性能の向上について発表する。特筆すべき成果は、積和演算の中間結果を高精度で保持して計算できるFMA命令を利用することで、我々がこれまでに開発した4倍精度BLASと比較し、代表的なルーチンで20$$sim$$45%の高速化を実現したことである。さらに、4倍精度固有値ソルバ「QPEigenK」が利用している4倍精度BLASをFMA命令を利用して開発したものに置き換えるだけで、原子力機構のICE Xおよび東京大学のFX10の2つのスパコンの大規模並列計算において10$$sim$$20%の高速化を実現した。この成果は、計算機の大規模化に伴って必要になりつつある高精度計算の高速な実行に資する成果である。

沖縄本島を含む琉球諸島周辺海域を対象とした2段ネストJCOPE2-ROMSダウンスケーリング海洋モデルを用いて、本海域特有のサブメソスケール(SMS)乱流の発達とそれに伴う3次元的な物質混合過程を評価するべく、季節変動成分を除去した渦成分に対してeddy heat flux (EHF)解析を行った。EHFに対してHelmholtz分解を適用することで、EHFを黒潮流軸成分と直交成分とに分解し、その3次元構造について検討した、その結果、本海域では、傾圧不安定と地形性シアの相乗的な効果により、黒潮流軸に対して東シナ海側では低気圧性のSMS渦が表層および水深500m程度の中層に発達すること、反対に沖縄本島側では混合層周辺に高気圧性のSMS渦が発生すること、およびその両者によって黒潮横断方向の渦熱輸送が3次元的に促進されていることを見出した。

セミ・ラグランジュ法における間接メモリアクセス、有限差分法におけるストライドメモリアクセスといった複雑なメモリアクセスパターンを有する核融合プラズマ乱流コードの高次元ステンシル計算をGPGPUやXeon Phiプロセッサ等の演算加速器上で最適化した。どちらのデバイスでも、Array of Structure of Array (AOSOA)データレイアウトが連続的なメモリアクセスに有効である。Xeon Phiでは時空間データ局所性の向上によるローカルキャッシュの効率的利用が必要不可欠である。GPGPUではテクスチャメモリの利用がセミ・ラグランジュ法の間接メモリアクセス性能を向上する。これらの最適化により、アクセラレータ用核融合カーネルはCPU用カーネルに比べてSandy Bridge (CPU)用最適化コードに比べて1.4x - 8.1x高速化した。

原子力機構では、評価済み核データJENDLやMARBLE2, SRAC, MVP, PHITSをはじめとした多くの核計算コードの開発を実施してきた。JENDLやこれらの核計算コードは多くの国々で広く使われているが、核計算コードが利用する断面積ライブラリを生成する核データ処理システムについてはこれまで日本では開発されておらず、NJOYやPREPROなどの諸外国の核データ処理システムを利用してきた。新しい核データライブラリが公開された際に、核計算コード用の断面積ライブラリを独立かつ適切に処理するため、原子力機構では新しい核データ処理システムFRENDYの開発を2013年から開始した。本論文では、FRENDYの概要、特徴そして検証について説明する。

J-PARCの核破砕中性子源では、中性性ビームを生成するために水銀ターゲットシステムを運転している。水銀ターゲットでは、大強度のパルス陽子ビームが入射することによって水銀の急激な発熱により圧力波が発生する。圧力波によって、水銀を内包するターゲット容器に繰返し応力だけでなくキャビテーション損傷を引き起す。圧力波を低減することは、ターゲット容器の寿命を保つ上で非常に重要な課題である。我々は、微小気泡を水銀中に注入し、圧力波を低減する技術の開発を行っており、今回、微小気泡発生器を水銀ターゲット容器に実装し、圧力波により励起されるターゲット容器の変位速度をその場診断装置で測定し、陽子ビーム条件や微小気泡の効果を調査した。その結果、ターゲット容器の変位速度は微小気泡により減少し、変位速度のピーク値は、気泡の注入量が0.4%, 0.1%の場合、気泡を注入しない場合に比べて各々1/3, 2/3に低減することを明らかにした。

Probing surface distributions of $$alpha$$ clusters in $$^{20}$$Ne via $$alpha$$-transfer reaction

福井 徳朗; 谷口 億宇*; 須原 唯広*; 延与 佳子*; 緒方 一介*

Journal of Physics; Conference Series, 863(1), p.012036_1 - 012036_3, 2017/07

Direct evidence of the $$alpha$$-cluster development has not been obtained yet although it was carried out a number of experimental studies attempting to extract the information of the clustering. We aim to verify the development of the $$alpha$$-cluster structure from observables. As a first application, it is argued how to extract the spatial information of the cluster structure of $$^{20}$$Ne through the cross section of $$^{16}$$O($$^6$$Li,$$d$$)$$^{20}$$Ne. For the analysis of the transfer reaction, we work with the coupled-channels Born approximation (CCBA) approach, in which the breakup effects of $$^6$$Li are taken into account by means of the continuum-discretized coupled-channels method (CDCC). The microscopic cluster model (MCM) with the generator coordinate method (GCM) is adopted to calculate the $$alpha$$-$$^{16}$$O wave function. We show that our calculation gives a significant improvement of the prediction on the transfer cross section to be consistent with experimental data. It is found that the surface region of the cluster wave function is sensitive to the cross section.

Effects of grain size on ultrasonic attenuation in type 316L stainless steel

A lead bismuth eutectic (LBE) spallation target will be installed in the Target Test Facility (TEF-T) in the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC). The spallation target vessel filled with LBE is made of type 316 stainless steel. However, various damages, such as erosion/corrosion damage and liquid metal embrittlement caused by contact with flowing LBE at high temperature, and irradiation hardening caused by protons and neutrons, may be inflicted on the target vessel, which will deteriorate the steel and might break the vessel. To monitor the target vessel for prevention of an accident, an ultrasonic technique has been proposed to establish off-line evaluation for estimating vessel material status during the target maintenance period. Basic R&D must be carried out to clarify the dependency of ultrasonic wave propagation behavior on material microstructures and obtain fundamental knowledge. As a first step, ultrasonic waves scattered by the grains of type 316 stainless steel are investigated using new experimental and numerical approaches in the present study. The results show that the grain size can be evaluated exactly and quantitatively by calculating the attenuation coefficient of the ultrasonic waves scattered by the grains. The results also show that the scattering regimes of ultrasonic waves depend heavily on the ratio of wavelength to average grain size, and are dominated by grains of extraordinarily large size along the wave propagation path.


Room-temperature creep tests under constant load on a TRIP-aided multi-microstructure steel

This study investigated room-temperature creep tests using a low-carbon TRIP steel to clarify the TRIP effect on tensile deformation behavior under constant load. Nominal strain and strain rate increased with an increase in applied stress and those were almost stagnated at holding times of about $$3.0 times 10^4$$ s. The volume fractions of deformation-induced martensite ($$alpha'$$) at a given true strain obtained from constant load creep tests were larger than those from tensile tests. From the in situ neutron diffraction experiments during the constant load creep tests, the phase strain of the austenite ($$gamma$$) phase in the creep tests was found to be larger than that in the tensile tests at the same applied stress. This means that the phase strain or true stress of the $$gamma$$ phase in the TRIP steel was associated with the difference in the volume fraction of $$alpha'$$ between the creep and the tensile tests.

BaCo$$_{2}$$V$$_{2}$$O$$_{8}$$ consists of Co chains, in which Co$$^{2+}$$ ion carries a fictitious spin $$frac{1}{2}$$ with Ising anisotropy. We performed elastic and inelastic neutron scattering experiments in BaCo$$_{2}$$V$$_{2}$$O$$_{8}$$ in magnetic field perpendicular to the $$c$$ axis which is the chain direction. With applying magnetic field along the $$a$$ axis at 3.5 K, the antiferromagnetic order with the easy axis along the $$c$$ axis, observed in zero magnetic field, is completely suppressed at 8 T, while the magnetic field gradually induces an antiferromagnetic order with the spin component along the $$b$$ axis. We also studied magnetic excitations as a function of transverse magnetic field. The lower boundary of the spinon excitations splits gradually with increasing magnetic field. The overall feature of the magnetic excitation spectra in magnetic field is reproduced by the theoretical calculation based on the spin $$frac{1}{2}$$ $$XXZ$$ antiferromagnetic chain model, which predicts that the dynamic magnetic structure factor of the spin component along the chain direction is enhanced and that along the field direction has clear incommensurate correlations.

We investigate the magnetic dynamics in the spinel-type vanadium oxide MnV$$_2$$O$$_4$$. Inelastic neutron scattering around 10 meV and a Heisenberg model analysis have revealed that V$$^{3+}$$ spin-wave modes exist at a lower-energy region than previously reported. The scattering around 20 meV cannot be reproduced with the spin-wave analysis. We propose that this scattering could originate from the spin-orbital coupled excitation. This scattering is most likely attributable to V$$^{3+}$$ spin-wave modes, entangled with the orbital hybridization between $$t_{2g}$$ orbitals.

Probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) analysis code PASCAL has been developed by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency to evaluate failure frequencies of Japanese reactor pressure vessels (RPVs) during pressurized thermal shock (PTS) events base on Japanese data and Japanese methods published for or prescribed in the Japanese regulations and standards. To verify this code, benchmark analyses were carried out with FAVOR code which was developed in United States and has been utilized in nuclear regulation. Through the benchmark analyses, the applicability of PASCAL in failure frequency evaluation of Japanese RPVs was confirmed with great confidence. The outline of PASCAL, the benchmark analysis conditions and results are provided in this paper.


Probabilistic fracture mechanics analysis models for Japanese reactor pressure vessels

Lu, K.; 勝山 仁哉; 宇野 隼平; Li, Y.

Proceedings of 2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2017) (CD-ROM), 8 Pages, 2017/07

Probabilistic fracture mechanics (PFM) analysis code PASCAL has been developed by Japan Atomic Energy Agency for structural integrity assessments of reactor pressure vessels (RPVs) by considering the inherent probabilistic distributions of various influence factors. For practical applications, several evaluation models are improved, and have been implemented into the current PASCAL code. In this paper, the improvements of PASCAL are introduced firstly, such as the evaluation method for underclad cracks, treatments of the complicated welding residual stress distribution, and evaluation models for the warm pre-stressing effect. In addition, the effects of these improvements on failure probability or failure frequency of RPVs are investigated by performing PFM analyses for domestic RPVs using PASCAL. From the analysis results, the effects of the improved evaluation models are discussed.

Closed-form stress intensity factor solutions for deep surface cracks in cylinders subjected to global bending

東 喜三郎*; Li, Y.; 長谷川 邦夫; Shim, D. J.*

Proceedings of 2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2017) (CD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2017/07

Materials made of alloy 82/182/600 used in pressurized water reactors are known to be susceptible to primary water stress corrosion cracking. The depth, ${it a}$, of flaws due to primary water stress corrosion cracking can be larger than the half of crack length ${it c}$, which is referred to as cracks with large aspect ratios. The stress intensity factor solution for cracks plays an important role to predict crack propagation and failure. However, Section XI of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code does not provide the solutions for cracks with large aspect ratios. This paper presents the stress intensity factor solutions for circumferential surface cracks with large aspect ratios in cylinders under global bending loads. Finite element solutions were used to fit closed-form equations with influence coefficients ${it G}$gb. The closed-form solutions for coefficient ${it G}$gb were developed at the deepest points and the surface points of the cracks with aspect ratios ranged from 1.0 to 8.0.


Study on the relationship between interaction factors and stress intensity factor for elliptical flaws

東 喜三郎*; Li, Y.; 長谷川 邦夫

Proceedings of 2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2017) (CD-ROM), 6 Pages, 2017/07

The interaction of multiple flaws in close proximity to one another may increase the stress intensity factor of the flaw in structures and components. This interaction effect is not distributed uniformly along the crack front. For instance, the strongest interaction is generally observed at the point closest to a neighboring flaw. For this reason, the closest point shows a higher value of the stress intensity factor than all other points in some cases, even if the original value at the point of the single flaw is relatively low. To clarify the condition when the closest point shows the maximum stress intensity factor, we investigated the interaction of two equal elliptical flaws in an infinite model subjected to remote tension loading. The stress intensity factor of the elliptical flaws was obtained be performing finite element analysis of a linear elastic solid. The results indicated that the interaction factors along the crack front can be expressed by a simple empirical formula. Finally, we show the relationship between geometrical features of the flaw and the stress intensity factor at the closest point.


Closed-form stress intensity factor solutions for deep surface cracks in plates

東 喜三郎*; Li, Y.; 長谷川 邦夫; Xu, S.*

Proceedings of 2017 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2017) (CD-ROM), 9 Pages, 2017/07

Materials made of alloy 82/182/600 used in light-water reactors are known to be susceptible to stress corrosion cracking. It is known that the depth ${it a}$ of some cracks due to primary water stress corrosion cracking is larger than the half of crack length ${it c}$. The stress intensity factor solution for cracks plays an important role to predict crack propagation and failure. However, Section XI of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code does not provide the solutions for cracks with large aspect ratios. In this study, closed-form stress intensity factor influence coefficients for deep surface cracks in plates are discussed. The crack tip stress distribution was represented by a fourth degree polynomial equation. Influence coefficient tables obtained by using finite element analysis in previous studies were used for curve fitting. The closed-form solutions for the coefficient were developed at the surface points, the deepest points, and the maximum points of the cracks with aspect ratios ranged from 1.0 to 8.0.
