In analyzing the safety of core disruptive accidents in Sodium-cooled Fast Reactors (SFRs), it is important to evaluate whether the decay heat of debris bed can be removed. The decay heat removability changes depending on the shape of debris bed, which would be deformed by coolant vapor with time. In the present paper, a new model was developed to analyze debris bed behavior with SIMMER, which is a safety analysis code for SFRs. In the new model, the effects of inter-particle collisions and contacts are modeled as inter-particle interaction. Test simulation results show the roles of physical properties in the new model on the dense particle behavior. Assessment results of proposed model based on model experiments indicate that the new model is capable of describing the transient of the shape of the particle bed in the liquid driven by the gas phase. Considering the fact that the process of leveling behavior in model experiments is common for the debris bed in SFRs, the new model can be employed as an analysis tool for debris bed behavior.

A fundamental issue concerning iron-based superconductivity is the roles of electronic nematicity and magnetism in realising high transition temperature ($$T_c$$). To address this issue, FeSe is a key material, as it exhibits a unique pressure phase diagram involving nonmagnetic nematic and pressure-induced antiferromagnetic ordered phases. However, as these two phases in FeSe have considerable overlap, how each order affects superconductivity remains perplexing. Here we construct the three-dimensional electronic phase diagram, temperature ($$T$$) against pressure ($$P$$) and iso-valent S-substitution ($$x$$), for FeSe$$_{1-x}$$S$$_x$$. By simultaneously tuning chemical and physical pressures, against which the chalcogen height shows a contrasting variation, we achieve a complete separation of nematic and antiferromagnetic phases. In between, an extended nonmagnetic tetragonal phase emerges, where $$T_c$$ shows a striking enhancement. The completed phase diagram uncovers that high-$$T_c$$ superconductivity lies near both ends of the dome-shaped antiferromagnetic phase, whereas $$T_c$$ remainslow near the nematic critical point.

Studies on local fuel-coolant interactions (FCI) in a molten pool are crucial to the analyses of severe accidents that could occur for sodium-cooled fast reactors (SFRs). To clarify the characteristics of this interaction, in recent years a series of simulated experiments, which covers a variety of conditions including much difference in water volume, melt temperature, water subcooling and water release site (pool surface or bottom), was conducted at the Japan Atomic Energy Agency by delivering a given quantity of water into a molten pool formed with a low-melting-point alloy. In this study, motivated by acquiring further evidence for understanding its mechanisms, interaction characteristics including the pressure-buildup as well as mechanical energy release and its conversion efficiency, are investigated using the SIMMER-III, an advanced fast reactor safety analysis code. It is confirmed that, similar to experiments, the water volume, melt temperature and water release site are observable to have remarkable impact on the interaction, while the role of water subcooling seems to be less prominent. The performed analyses also suggest that the most probable reason leading to the limited pressurization and resultant mechanical energy release for a given melt and water temperature within the non-film boiling range, even under a condition of much larger volume of water entrapped within the pool, should be primarily due to an isolation effect of vapor bubbles generated at the water-melt interface.

To clarify the mechanisms underlying local fuel-coolant interactions (FCI) in a molten pool, in this study, several latest calculations with reactor materials were performed using SIMMER-III, an advanced fast reactor safety analysis code. The performed SIMMER-III analyses suggest that despite of a comparatively larger temperature range of molten-fuel and sodium possibly varied during reactor accidents, the isolation effect of vapor bubbles generated at the melt-sodium interface seems to be the unique dominant mechanism that leads to the limited pressurization. Knowledge and fundamental data from this work might be utilized for future empirical-approach studies (e.g. those investigating the characteristics of critical coolant volume required for achieving the saturated pressurization at varied melt and coolant temperatures).

Studies on local fuel-coolant interactions (FCI) in a molten pool are important for severe accident analyses of sodium-cooled fast reactors (SFRs). Motivated by providing some evidence for understanding this interaction, in this study several experimental tests, with comparatively larger difference in coolant volumes, were conducted by delivering a given quantity of water into a simulated molten fuel pool (formed with a low-melting-point alloy). Interaction characteristics including the pressure-buildup as well as mechanical energy release and its conversion efficiency are evaluated and compared. It is found that as water quantity increases, a limited pressure-buildup and the resultant mechanical energy release are observable. The performed analyses also suggest that only a part of water is probably vaporized during local FCIs and responsible for the pressurization and mechanical energy release, especially for those cases with much larger water volumes.

It is found that the SIMMER-III code not only reasonably simulates the transient pressure and temperature variations during local FCIs, but also supports the limited tendency of pressurization and resultant mechanical energy release as observed from experiments when the volume of water delivered into the pool increases. The performed analyses also suggest that the most probable reason leading to such limited tendency should be primarily due to an isolation effect of vapor bubbles generated at the water-melt interface.

Characteristics of pressure buildup from local fuel-coolant interactions in a simulated molten fuel pool, 2; Numerical analyses using SIMMER-III

Cheng, S.; 松場 賢一; 磯崎 三喜男; 神山 健司; 鈴木 徹; 飛田 吉春

Proceedings of 10th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics, Operation and Safety (NUTHOS-10) (USB Flash Drive), 12 Pages, 2014/12

In this study, motivated by acquiring further evidence for understanding the characteristics of pressure buildup from local fuel-coolant interactions in a simulated molten fuel pool, SIMMER-III, an advanced fast reactor safety analysis code, is utilized for analyses. It is found that, similar to previous reported experimental analyses, the water volume and melt temperature are observable to have remarkable impact on the interaction, while the role of water subcooling seems to be less prominent. In addition, from the numerical runs performed it is also recognized that the most probable reason leading to the limited pressurization for a given melt and water temperature within the non-film boiling range, even under a condition of comparatively larger volume of water delivered into the pool, should be due to an isolation effect of vapor bubbles generated at the water-melt interface. Knowledge and data gained from this study might be utilized for potential empirical-model development as well as future investigations using reactor materials.

Studies on debris bed self-leveling behavior with non-spherical particles are crucial in the assessment of actual leveling behavior that could occur in core disruptive accident of sodium-cooled fast reactors. Although in our previous publications, a simple empirical model (based model), with its wide applicability confirmed over various experimental conditions, has been successfully advanced to predict the transient leveling behavior, up until now this model is restricted to calculations of debris bed of spherical particles. Focusing on this aspect, in this study a series of experiments using non-spherical particles was performed within a recently-developed comparatively larger-scale experimental facility. Based on the knowledge and data obtained, an extension scheme is suggested with the intention to extend the base model to cover the particle-shape influence. Through detailed analyses, it is found that by coupling this scheme, good agreement between experimental and predicted results can be achieved for both spherical and non-spherical particles given current range of experimental conditions.

To clarify the mechanisms underlying the debris-bed self-leveling behavior, several series of experiments were elaborately designed and conducted within a variety of conditions in recent years, under the collaboration between Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and Kyushu University. The current contribution, including knowledge from both experimental analyses and empirical model development, is focused on a recently developed comparatively larger-scale experimental facility using gas-injection to simulate the coolant boiling. Based on the experimental observation and quantitative data obtained, influence of various experimental parameters, including gas flow rate ($$sim$$ 300 L/min), water depth (180 mm and 400 mm), bed volume (3 $$sim$$ 7 L), particle size (1 $$sim$$ 6 mm), particle density (beads of alumina, zirconia and stainless steel) along with particle shape (spherical and irregularly-shaped) on the leveling is checked and compared. As for the empirical model development, aside from a base model which is restricted to calculations of spherical particles, the status of potential considerations on how to cover more realistic conditions (esp. debris beds formed with non-spherical particles), is also presented and discussed.

Analyses of severe accidents for SFRs have indicated that the accident might proceed into a transition phase where a large whole-core-scale pool containing sufficient fuel to exceed prompt criticality by fuel compaction might be formed. Local fuel-coolant interaction (FCI) in the pool is regarded as one of the probable initiators that could lead to such compactive fluid motions. To clarify the mechanisms underlying this interaction, in this study a series of experiments was conducted by delivering a given quantity of water into a simulated molten fuel pool. Based on the experimental data obtained from a variety of conditions, interaction characteristics including the pressure-buildup as well as resultant mechanical energy release and its conversion efficiency, is checked and compared. It is found that under our experimental conditions the water volume, melt temperature and water release position have remarkable impact on the interaction, while the role of water subcooling seems to be less prominent. The analyses also suggest that the pressurization and resultant mechanical energy release during local FCIs should be intrinsically limited, due to an observed suppressing role caused by the increasing of coolant volume entrapped within the pool as well as the transition of boiling mode. Evidence and data from this work will be utilized for verifications of advanced fast reactor safety analysis codes.

Analyses of severe accidents for sodium-cooled fast reactors have shown that by assuming pessimistic conditions the accident might proceed into a transition phase where a whole-core-scale pool containing sufficient fuel to exceed prompt criticality by fuel compaction might be formed. Local fuel-coolant interaction in the pool is regarded as one of the probable initiators that could lead to such compactive fluid motions. From previous preliminary experimental analyses, it was recognized that for a given melt and water temperature within the non-film boiling range, with the increasing of water volume, a limited pressure buildup can be observed. In this study, to further understand this interaction, SIMMER-III, an advanced fast reactor safety analysis code, is utilized for analyses. It is found that the SIMMER-III code can reasonably simulate the transient pressure and temperature tendencies during local FCIs as understood from experiments. In addition, from the comparative analyses between different cases, the observed limited pressurization characteristics from experiments can be confirmed as well. To achieve a deeper and more systematic understanding on local FCIs, with the ongoing of experimental analyses, more numerical analyses over various situations, such as much difference in water subcooling, melt temperature as well as the water release site, have been also planned.

Current work, which gives a palette of favorable data for a better understanding and an improved estimation of severe accidents in SFRs, is expected to benefit future analyses and verifications of computer models developed in advanced fast reactor safety analysis codes.

SFRのシビアアクシデントにおいて、燃料デブリが冷却限界厚さを超えて堆積した場合、セルフ・レベリング挙動によってデブリベッド厚みが冷却限界を下回ることが期待される。ゆえに、SFRの安全解析においてセルフ・レベリング挙動を評価することは重要であるが、これを解析する手法は存在しない。そこで、本研究ではセルフ・レベリング挙動に固有の現象を解析するための新規手法を開発することを目的とする。デブリベッドのセルフ・レベリング挙動の特徴から、Bingham流体を仮定することで新規手法を開発した。新規手法は粒子間衝突を模擬した粒子間相互作用と粒子間接触の効果を模擬した2つのパートにより構成される。この新規手法に対して固気液三相流からなるセルフ・レベリング挙動模擬実験を用いて検証を行った。新規手法は、モデルパラメータに依存するものの模擬実験結果をよく再現する。このことから、本新規手法がSFR環境下におけるデブリベッドのセルフ・レベリング挙動に対する適用性を有することが示された。

To clarify the mechanisms underlying the debris bed self-leveling behavior, several series of experiments were elaborately designed and conducted in recent years under the constructive collaboration between Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and Kyushu University (Japan). Based on the experimental observations and quantitative data obtained from various conditions, a simple empirical approach to predict the self-leveling development depending on particle size, particle density and gas velocity was proposed. To confirm the rationality and wide applicability of this approach, over the past few years extensive efforts have been made by performing modeling investigations against a large number of experimental data covering various conditions (including difference in bubbling mode, bed geometry and range of experimental parameters). The present contribution synthesizes these efforts and gives detailed comparative analyses of the performed validations, thus, providing some insight for a better understanding of CDAs and improved verifications of computer models developed in advanced fast reactor safety analysis codes.

Preliminary results of a fuel-coolant interaction experiment in simulated molten fuel pool

In the severe accident analyses for sodium-cooled fast reactors, there is the possibility that a whole-core-scale pool containing sufficient fuel to exceed prompt criticality by fuel compaction might be formed. Local fuel-coolant interaction in the pool is regarded as one of the probable initiators that could lead to such compactive fluid motions. To clarify the mechanisms underlying this interaction, an experimental system using simulant materials has been developed. The experiments were conducted by delivering a given quantity of water into a simulated molten fuel pool. Current paper presents the experimental design and knowledge from preliminary analyses of several typical runs (with water quantity varying from 5 cc to 40 cc). Interaction characteristics including the pressure-buildup as well as mechanical energy release and its conversion efficiency are evaluated and compared in detail. It is revealed that as water quantity increases, a limited pressurization and resultant mechanical energy release is observable.

A Methodological study extending an empirical model to predict self-leveling behavior of debris beds with non-spherical particles

Cheng, S.; 田上 浩孝; 山野 秀将; 鈴木 徹; 飛田 吉春; 中村 裕也*; Zhang, B.*; 松元 達也*; 守田 幸路*

In our previous publications, a simple empirical model, with its wide applicability confirmed over various experimental conditions, has been successfully proposed to predict the debris bed self-leveling behavior of spherical particles. Based on existing experimental knowledge obtained, in this study a methodological framework is developed with the purpose of extending its predicative capability for non-spherical particles. The proposed framework principally consists of two empirical terms - with one for correcting the terminal velocity of single non-spherical particles, which is the key parameter in our modeling, and the other for representing the additional particle-particle interactions caused by the shape-related parameters. Through the preliminary analyses, it was found that by linking the Geldart's method with our recently developed pressure-drop measurement facility, the terminal velocity of irregularly-shaped particles can be readily achieved, while for modeling the additional particle-particle interactions, based on the latest data available a parametric study is also conducted to identify the potential contributors.

Although in the past, several experiments have been conducted to investigate the self-leveling behavior of debris beds, most of these were under comparatively lower gas velocities, the findings of which might be not directly applicable to actual reactor accident conditions. Current experiments were conducted using gas-injection in a large-scale cylindrical tank, in which nitrogen gas, water and different kinds of solid particles, simulate the fission gas, coolant and fuel debris, respectively. During experiments, to accomplish the bubble-based leveling as expected in reactor conditions, two experimental approaches, termed respectively as the gas pre-charge method and the pressure-adjustment method, have been attempted. Through elaborate comparisons and evaluations, it is found that compared to the gas pre-charge way the pressure-adjustment method can alleviate the liquid disturbance from bottom inlet pipelines more effectively. Further, based on experimental data using pressure-adjustment method, influence of particle size, particle density and gas flow rate on the leveling has been confirmed under current higher gas velocities. In addition, the liquid convection in the water pool, which is not evident within lower gas velocities, is observed to play an important role within current conditions, especially for experimental runs using larger-size but lower-density particles at rather higher gas flow rates.

To confirm the mechanisms of self-leveling behavior, several series of experiments were elaborately designed and performed in recent years under the constructive collaboration between Japan Atomic Energy Agency and Kyushu University. This paper summarizes the recent knowledge obtained from the newly developed large-scale experiments using gas-injection to simulate coolant boiling. Compared to previous investigations, it can cover a much wider range of gas velocities (presently up to a flow rate of around 300 L/min). The experiments were conducted in a cylindrical tank, in which water, nitrogen gas and different kinds of solid particles, simulate the coolant, vapor and fuel debris, respectively. Based on the quantitative data obtained, influence of various experimental parameters, including gas flow rate, water depth, particle size as well as particle density on the leveling was checked and compared. Moreover, with the help of dimensional analysis technique, a set of empirical correlations to predict the self-leveling development depending on particle size, particle density and gas injection velocity was proposed and validated over current conditions.
