We surveyed on structural and material data on 22 facilities which are listed in local disaster management plan in Matsue city. These facilities can be divided into educational facilities, communal facilities and gymnastic hall. Height and floor-area of rooms, as well as window-area were collected as the structural data. We also collected information on constructional materials, and density of those. In addition, mass-thicknesses of the constructional materials were evaluated based on our surveys, and compared to the previous studies which were made in Japan, U.S., and European countries. Consequently, it was found that there is no significant difference of mass-thickness of constructional materials between the results of our surveys and the previous studies. However, for gymnastic hall, since thin metal plates are used for roofs, we can point out that the mass-thickness of roofs are much lower than those for other concrete facilities and clay tile roofing wooden houses.

Inelastic neutron scattering experiments are performed on the nanoporous metal complex Cu--1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxylic acid (Cu-CHD) adsorbing O molecules to identify the spin model of the O-based magnet realized in the host complex. It is found that the magnetic excitations of Cu-CHDs adsorbing low- and high-concentration O molecules are explained by different spin models, the former by spin dimers and the latter by spin trimers. By using the obtained parameters and by assuming that the levels of the group of the highest energy states are reduced because of the nonnegligible spin dependence of the molecular potential of oxygen, the magnetization curves are explained quantitatively.

Summer schools for future experts have successfully been completed under Japan Actinide Network (J-ACTINET) for the purpose of development of human resources who are expected to be engaged in every areas of actinide-research/engineering. The first summer school was held in Ibaraki-area in August 2009, followed by the second one in Kansai-area in August 2010. Two summer schools have focused on actual experiences of actinides in actinide-research fields for university students and young researchers/engineers as an introductory course of actinide-researches. Several quasi actinide-handling experiences at the actinide-research fields have attracted attentions of participants at the first school in Ibaraki-area. The actual experiments using actinides-containing solutions have been carried out at the second school in Kansai-area. Future summer schools will be held every year for the sustainable human resource development in various actinide-research fields.

Measurements of electrons from the decay of open-heavy-flavor mesons have shown that the yields are suppressed in Au+Au collisions compared to expectations from binary-scaled collisions. Here we extend these studies to two particle correlations where one particle is an electron from the decay of a heavy flavor meson and the other is a charged hadron from either the decay of the heavy meson or from jet fragmentation. These measurements provide more detailed information about the interaction between heavy quarks and the quark-gluon matter. We find the away-side-jet shape and yield to be modified in Au+Au collisions compared to collisions.

Future synchrotron light source using a 5-GeV energy recovery linac (ERL) is under proposal by our Japanese collaboration team, and we are conducting R&D efforts for that. We are developing high-brightness DC photocathode guns, two types of cryomodules for both injector and main superconducting (SC) linacs, and 1.3 GHz high CW-power RF sources. We are also constructing the Compact ERL (cERL) for demonstrating the recirculation of low-emittance, high-current beams using above-mentioned critical technologies.

In the side wall of TBM, parallel flow channels are considered. In the cooling channels structure, the flow distribution probably arises from the pressure drop in the channels. The purpose of this study is to clarify the water flow distribution in the side wall and design the cooling channels structure so that structural material of the side wall can be kept under the allowable temperature. The structural material for assumed flow rates and the flow distribution were estimated, and then the cooling channels structure was designed. The design was verified using the mockup made of the vinyl chloride pipe. For the verified design, the mockup made of F82H is manufactured, and the water flow distribution and the pressure drop were measured. It was found that the heat removal capability was sufficient in this design. From these results, the design for the cooling channels structure in the side wall is established so that enough water flow to cool the structural material is kept.

For a risk assessment model of an engineering system, the uncertainties in the model inputs propagate through the model and lead to the uncertainty in the model output. In order to evaluate the model output uncertainty and the contribution of each model input to the output uncertainty, the computer code GSALab, which is based on Monte Carlo simulations, has been developed. It is composed of three parts, namely, random samples generation, uncertainty analysis and sensitivity analysis. In the part of sensitivity analysis, several global sensitivity indicators, including the popularly used variance-based indicators, are implemented. In addition, the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of GSALab has been developed for the user's convenience. In addition to risk assessment models, it is also possible to use GSALab for uncertainty and sensitivity analysis of a wide class of mathematical models.

One of the main bottlenecks for the applications of ultrashort and ultrahigh-peak power lasers in high-field physics is a temporal contrast of the pulses. In ultrahigh-peak power lasers, a nanosecond background of the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) is generated at the same time as the femtosecond pulse. This background is mostly generated in the preamplifier (regenerative, multipass amplifier). Even though the contrast level is usually in the range from 10 to 10, this level is not sufficiently low at relativistic intensities greater than 10W/cm to avoid unwanted pre-plasmas generation. We demonstrated a high-contrast, high-peak power laser with optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification (OPCPA). With the use of OPCPA, contrast is enhanced to better than 710 in a few picoseconds before the main pulse, which corresponds to an improvement of three to four orders in magnitude compared with conventional systems.

Neutrino-nucleus reactions on C and He are studied based on new shell model Hamiltonians. The cross sections are found to be enhanced compared with those obtained by conventional Hamiltonians. The production yield of Li and B during supernova explosions are pointed out to be enhanced, and a possibility of determining the neutrino mixing angle is discussed in case of neutrino oscillations. Neutrino induced reactions on Fe and Ni isotopes are also studied based on recent advances in shell model calculations in the -shell. The reaction crowds sections are found to be enhanced compared with those obtained by a modified KB3 Hamiltonian.

We investigated successive phase transitions in SmBC at =37K and =51K by means of resonant X-ray diffraction. Strong resonant diffraction signal is observed at the 101 reflection below at the Sm edge, whereas in the intermediate phase signals appear at incommensurate positions =(1, ,1) where =0.13. Accordingly, the successive phase transitions in SmBC is found to be commensurate-to-incommensurate magnetic phase transitions.

This paper presents progresses of the test strategy development, design and supporting R&Ds of solid breeder Test Blanket Modules (TBMs) in Japan. Japan is proposing to test its unique designs of Water Cooled Solid Breeder (WCSB) TBM and Helium Cooled Solid Breeder (HCSB) TBM from the beginning of the ITER operation. As for the design work, structure design showed steady progress and clarified detailed structure taking into account the fabrication procedure. As for supporting R&Ds, the corrosion characteristics of the structural material by high temperature and pressure water was clarified as one of critical structure integrity issues. Also, important design data of the breeder pebble bed has been clarfied. Along with the development progress, the test strategy has been investigated to obtain the most effective results of TBM test program.

The authors obtain a new equation to estimate the forward component of a photon dose which is generated through the interaction between a target and a short pulse high power laser. As the equation is quite simple, it is useful for calculating the photon dose. The equation shows that the photon dose is proportional to the electron temperature for the range of its temperature 3 MeV, and proportional to square of the electron temperature for the range of its temperature 3 MeV. The dose estimated with this method is roughly consistent with the result of Monte Carlo simulation. On someassumptions and corrections, it can reproduce experimental results obtained and the dose result calculated at other laboratories.

In order to estimate life time of the mercury target vessel of spallation neutron source which will be subjected to cavitation impacts, prediction methods of pitting damage induced by the cavitation impact were proposed. It is very important to estimate incubation time, in which plastic deformation occurs without mass loss, because the thickness of vessel is very thin. In the present paper, two estimation methods were proposed. One of them is estimatiion from erosion test of severely damaged specimen by plotting the mass loss as a function of exposure time to cavitation on the logarithmic scales. Another method is the observation method of plastic deformation pits on damaged surface at very early period in incubation stage.

We have determined the distribution of the 5f-quadrupoles and detected the 5f-quadrupole order in the uranium intermetallics, uranium dipnictides and UPd, with Mo"ssbauer spectroscopy. We have declared that the distribution of the 5f-quadrupoles depends on the magnetic sequence in uranium dipnictides. The distribution of the 5f-quadrupole is spherical in UBi, while those are oblate within c-plane in UP, UAs and USb. We have observed the sudden drop of the recoil-free fraction above the transition temperature of the quadrupole order in UPd. The present result suggests the change of the phonon states due to the quadrupole order in this compound.
