In the Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR), the leakage accidents of radioactive waste liquid were occurred from the tanks and pipes of the liquid waste disposal facility in the JMTR tank-yard building in JFY2014. In order to respond to the accident, obtain the approval of the JAEA to the design and construction method from JFY2016, the tanks and pipes were replaced from JFY2016 to 2019. In the replaced, the production of the tanks and pipes of the liquid waste disposal facility applied Japanese technical standards correspondingly. On the other hand, the valve did not fall under the category of Japanese technical standards. The manufacturing specifications when replacing the valve were decided based on the including the selecting the standards of production and inspection for valves, Fluid properties, experience in JMTR. The production proceeded while carrying out the decided inspection. The valves that passed all the inspections were installed together with the tanks and pipes of the liquid waste, and the finished inspection was performed as a systems. The construction was completed with those inspection passed. This report is summarized valve Design, production and installation.

In response to new standard for regulating research and test reactor which is enforced December 18, 2013, it was carried out assessment of the probability of aircraft crashing for HTTR. According to assessment method provided in the Assessment Criteria of the Probability of Aircraft Crashing on Commercial Power Reactor Facilities, assessment was conducted targeting reactor building, spent fuel storage building and cooling tower. As a result, it was confirmed that the probability was 5.9810, which is lower than the assessment criteria 10.

In the Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR), the leakage accidents of radioactive waste liquid were occurred from the tanks and pipes of the liquid waste disposal facility in the JMTR tank-yard building in JFY2014. In order to respond to the accident, the tanks and pipes were replaced from JFY2016 to 2019. On the other hand, a lot of cracks were occurred on the concreate wall of the tank-yard building when the frame structure supports were fixed to the concrete wall in the replacement work. Thus, it is necessary to repair the concreate wall of the tank-yard building. Especially, some cracks with swelling (cone-shaped fracture) were raised around some anchor bolts (the post-installed chemical anchor bolts) fixed the frame structure supports. The repairing method for the cone-shaped fracture of the concrete wall is standardized, but there was no reference value of tensile strength for the validation of the post-installed chemical anchor bolts after the repairing method. In this report, the repairing method was selected for the cone-shaped fracture on the concreate wall and the reference value of tensile strength for the validation of the post-installed chemical anchor bolts by this repairing method. The mock-ups for repairing cone-shaped fracture were fabricated by the selected repairing method and the tensile tests of the post-installed chemical anchor bolts were performed. From the results, the validation of the repairing method was obtained in this test and it was obvious the repairing of cone-shaped fracture is preferable method for the concreate wall of the JMTR tank-yard building.

Improvement of plant reliability based on reliability-centered-maintenance (RCM) is going to be undertaken in NPPs. RCM is supported by risk-based maintenance (RBM). The combination of prediction and inspection is one of the key issues to promote RBM. Early prediction of IGSCC occurrence and its propagation should be confirmed throughout the entire plant systems which should be accomplished by inspections at the target locations followed by timely application of suitable countermeasures. From the inspections, accumulated data will be applied to confirm the accuracy of the code, to tune some uncertainties of the key data for prediction, and then, to increase their accuracy. The synergetic effects of prediction and inspection on application of effective and suitable countermeasures are expected. In the paper, the procedures for the combination of prediction and inspection are introduced.

The Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR), achieving first criticality in March 1968, has been used in testing the durability and integrity of reactor fuels and components, basic nuclear research, the production of radioisotopes, and other purposes. The JMTR, however, stopped in August 2006 after its 165th operation cycle, and is currently under going partial renewal of reactor facilities and installation of new irradiation facilities, geared toward being restarted in 2012. Now, the installation of two new irradiation facilities under the LWR irradiation environment were finished until 2011FY. One is a power ramping test facility of high-burnup fuel. Another one is a material irradiation facility for IASCC research under the LWR irradiation environment. And another irradiation facility (Hydraulic rabbit irradiation facility) maintenance is carried out on 2011FY. This report is described the installed new irradiation facilities and established irradiation facility until 2011FY in JMTR.

The main body of the JMTR is composed of reactor pressure vessel, core and reactor pool. At the bottom of the reactor pool, the Diaphragm-seal (2.6m outer diameter, 2m inner diameter, thickness 1.5mm) of the JMTR made of stainless steel is installed to prevent the water leak of the reactor pool and to absorb the expansion of the reactor pressure vessel due to pressure and temperature changes. Prior to the refurbishment of the JMTR, the inspection device which is a deposition-collection apparatus with underwater-camera was developed, and the visual inspection was carried out to confirm the soundness of the diaphragm-seal. As a result, harmful flaws and/or corrosions were not inspected in the visual inspection, and the soundness of the diaphragm seal was confirmed. In future, the long-term integrity of the diaphragm-seal will could be achieved by conducting the periodic inspection.

Piping condition was inspected form the view point of confirmation of long term utilization before renewal work of secondary cooling system in the JMTR on FY 2008. As the result, it was confirmed that crack, swelling and exfoliation in inner lining of piping could be observed, and corrosion in piping could hardly be observed. Repair of inner lining of piping during refurbishment of the JMTR is necessary to long term utilization of secondary cooling system after restart of the JMTR. In addition, periodic inspection of inner lining condition is necessary after repair of secondary cooling system piping.

Dissolved oxygen ions and chlorine ions concentration have been used as an evaluation index of stress corrosion cracking behavior for the light water reactor materials. In addition to these parameters, Electrochemical Corrosion Potential (ECP) was commonly used as the evaluation. Therefore, as a part of the IASCC irradiation tests, the irradiation test of the iron oxide type and the platinum type of ECP sensor were carried out under the BWR coolant condition. As a result, some measurements of ECP sensor succeed. However, it was clear that the improvement of ECP sensor is necessary. In this report, developed irradiation capsule ECP sensor is reported.

Irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC) caused by the simultaneous effects of radiation, stress and high temperature water environment is considered to be one of the critical concerns of in-core structural materials not only for light water reactors (LWRs) but also for water-cooled fusion reactors. In the research field of IASCC, post-irradiation examinations (PIEs) for irradiated materials have been mainly carried out, because there are many difficulties on SCC tests under neutron irradiation environment. Hence we have embarked on a development of the test techniques for performing the in-pile SCC tests. In this paper, we describe the developed several in-pile test techniques and the current status of in-pile SCC tests at Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR).

The control system of J-PARC project is under construction. After almost finishing the hardware installation of the L3BT section, an online device commissioning was performed for magnet power supply, stepping motor and vacuum system. Many components for device control have already been developed separately, but not integrated together yet. It is the first experience to combine all the components, including core software for a front-end IO controller, an EPICS run-time database, and a remote graphic user interface. This paper describes the detail of the recent construction status of the L3BT control system, including component development, system integration, and device commissioning.
