Experimental and theoretical studies on oxidation of Cu-Au alloy surfaces; Effect of bulk Au concentration

Okada, Michio*; Tsuda, Yasutaka*; Oka, Kohei*; Kojima, Kazuki*; Di$~n$o, W. A.*; Yoshigoe, Akitaka; Kasai, Hideaki*

We report results of our experimental and theoretical studies on the oxidation of Cu-Au alloy surfaces, viz., Cu$$_{3}$$Au(111), CuAu(111), and Au$$_{3}$$Cu(111), using hyperthermal O$$_{2}$$ molecular beam (HOMB). We observed strong Au segregation to the top layer of the corresponding clean (111) surfaces. This forms a protective layer that hinders further oxidation into the bulk. The higher the concentration of Au in the protective layer formed, the higher the protective efficacy. As a result, of the three Cu-Au surfaces studied, Au$$_{3}$$Cu(111) is the most stable against dissociative adsorption of O$$_{2}$$, even with HOMB. We also found that this protective property breaks down for oxidations occurring at temperatures above 300 K.

Rock mass classifications are used for design and construction of underground structures. However, the classification methods commonly used in Japan are qualitative and inadequate for estimating the actual mechanical properties of a rock mass based on site specific geological features. Considering the design, construction and safe operation of large underground facilities, an important requirement is to utilize a rock mass classification method that can estimate site specific rock mechanical properties based on surface-based investigations and geological observations during excavation. For this study, a new quantitative rock mass classification method based on JGS standard was proposed and applied to the sedimentary formations and the granite at MIU. The results were compared with the rock mass classification system developed by CRIEPI and commonly used in JAPAN. Then the applicability of the new rock mass classification could be evaluated.

ACROSS has developed to acquire the detailed information on the tectonically active zone. The technology for example the transmission and receiving technique, the data analysis and the interpretation technique of the ACROSS signal is able to apply not only to seismology but also to other field. We considered the ACROSS technology may apply to the engineering technology of the MIU project, for example monitoring of the change of the geological environment around shafts and also the strength of the shaft concrete itself. It is planned that the examination for three years will be made from fiscal year 2007. The first year is expansion of the network of observation stations, the second year is data acquisition and last year is the analysis of data and evaluation of the ACROSS. In this report, we describe the results of fundamental studies of the ACROSS and the processing results obtained from the ACROSS observation stations which were prepared in fiscal year 2007 and 2008, also describe the current evaluation results of the ACROSS.

Considering the design, construction and safe operation of large underground facilities such as for the geological disposal of high-level radioactive waste, an important requirement is to utilize a rock mass classification method that can estimate site specific rock mechanical properties based on surface-based investigations and geological observations during excavation. For this study, a new quantitative rock mass classification method based on the Japanese Geotechnical Society standard was proposed and applied to the sedimentary formations and the granite at the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory. The results were compared with the rock mass classification system developed by the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry and commonly used in Japan. Then the applicability of the new rock mass classification could be evaluated.

The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU), one of the main facilities in Japan for research and development of the technology for high-level radioactive waste disposal, is under construction in Mizunami City. In planning the construction, it was necessary to get reliable information on the bedrock conditions, specifically the rock mass stability and hydrogeology. Therefore, borehole investigations were conducted before excavations started. The results indicated that large water inflow could be expected during the excavation around the Ventilation Shaft at GL-200m and GL-300m Access/Research Gallery. In order to reduce water inflow, pre-excavation grouting was conducted before excavation of shafts and research tunnels. Grouting is the injection of material such as cement into a rock mass to stabilize and seal the rock. This report describes the knowledge and lessons learned during the planning and conducting of pre-excavation grouting.

A large amount of water inflow is frequently generated during the excavation of an underground cavern, such as road and railway tunnels, underground electric facilities etc. The reduction of water inflow is sometimes quite important for the reduction of cost for the water treatment and pumping during the construction of an underground cavern. The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) is currently being constructed by Japan Atomic Energy Agency. During its excavation, a large amount of water inflow into the shafts has been increasing and affecting the project progress. Therefore, a field experiment of post-excavation grouting around the Ventilation Shaft in a sedimentary formation carried out to confirm the effect of existing grouting technology for sedimentary formations in MIU project. The result shows that the applied methods in this field experiment are effective to prevent water inflow. This report describes the summary of the field experiment and the knowledge obtained through the experiment.

The Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory is currently being constructed by Japan Atomic Energy Agency. During its excavation, large amount of water inflow into the shafts has been increasing and affecting the project progress. As countermeasures for reducing water inflow, grouting methods are being considered, one is post-excavation grouting for the area already excavated, and another is pre-excavation grouting for the area excavate in future. Therefore, the field experiment for post-excavation grouting was carried out, and the result show that the applied methods in this field experiment is effective to prevent the draining. And pre-excavation grouting has been undertaken and the applicability of several techniques has been evaluated. This report describes the summary of the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory and field experiments of post- and pre-excavation grouting method.

Effects of vibrational and rotational excitations on the dissociative adsorption of O$$_{2}$$ on Cu surfaces

Moritani, Kosuke*; Tsuda, Muneyuki*; Teraoka, Yuden; Okada, Michio*; Yoshigoe, Akitaka; Fukuyama, Tetsuya*; Kasai, Toshio*; Kasai, Hideaki*

We report an X-ray photoemission study of the dissociative adsorption of O$$_{2}$$ at Cu(111), (001), and (110) surfaces with an O$$_{2}$$ molecular beam generated with a variable temperature nozzle. The O-uptake curves, which are produced from precisely measured O-1s peaks, indicate that the dissociative absorption is enhanced as the nozzle temperature is increased up to 1000 K for the normal incidence of O$$_{2}$$ at a kinetic energy of 0.5 eV. However, further increasing the nozzle temperature to 1400 K reduces the probability of dissociativeadsorption. These results suggest that vibrational excitations of incident O$$_{2}$$ assist dissociative adsorption while rotational excitations hinder it.
