A collapse event of the cooling tower of secondary cooling system in the JMTR (Japan Materials Testing Reactor) was caused by the strong wind of Typhoon No.15 on September 9, 2019. The cause of the collapse of the cooling tower was investigated and analyzed. As the result, it was identified that four causes occurred in combination. Thus, the soundness of the cooling tower of Utility Cooling Loop (UCL cooling tower), which is a wooden cooling tower installed at the same period as the cooling tower of secondary cooling system, was investigated. The items of soundness survey are to grasp the operation conditions of the UCL cooling tower, to confirm the degradation of structural materials, the inspection items and inspection status of the UCL cooling tower, and to investigate the past meteorological data. As the results of soundness survey of the UCL cooling tower, the improvement of inspection items of the UCL cooling tower was carried out and the replacement and repair of the structural materials of the UCL cooling tower were planned for safe maintenance and management of this facility. And the renewal plan of new cooling tower was created to replace the existing UCL cooling tower. This report is summarized the soundness survey of the UCL cooling tower.

Visual analysis plays an important role in understanding and evaluating the climate models, their variables, and their outputs because complex processes are required for the tuning of the climate models. Virtual Reality (VR) technologies are effective for 3D visualization and have been recently employed for visual analysis of more various scientific data. However, researchers may have some problematic situations while using VR space depending on user operations and target geometries. Here, we propose an image-based view selection method to solve these situations and understand differences in ocean states between simulations and observations based on shapes of mode water regions. This view selection takes evaluation criteria for shape comparison of mode water regions generated from simulations and observations into account. This paper introduces two example cases applying this view selection and discusses on a degree of shape matching of mode water regions of each case.

On 18th December 2013, the new regulatory requirements for Japanese research reactor were enforced by the Nuclear Regulation Authority in Japan. This new regulatory requirements are also applied to any research reactor in Japan, even if licensed research reactor. Thus the verification of conformity in the JMTR facilities to the new regulatory requirements was carried out. In this reports, the safety assessment against the beyond design basis accident will be described. At first, events tree analyses were carried out to select beyond design basis accidents. From these analyses, it was confirmed that 8 events can be representative cases. These events were analyzed from the viewpoints of public dose exposer. As the result of analysis, it was confirmed that 3 events out of 8 has a possibility to give the considerable public dose exposer so that the counter measerments were taken account to reduce the dose exposer to acceptable limit.
