In-pile functional tests of breeding blankets have been planned by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), using a test blanket module (TBM) which will be loaded in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). In preparation for the in-pile functional tests, JAEA has been being performed irradiation experiments of lithium titanate (Li$$_{2}$$TiO$$_{3}$$), which is the first candidate of solid breeder materials for the blanket of the demonstration reactor (DEMO) under designing in Japan. The present report describes (1) results of a detailed design and trial fabrication tests of a dismantling apparatus for irradiation capsules which were used in irradiation experiments by the Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR) of JAEA, and (2) results of a preliminary investigation of a glove box facility for post-irradiation examinations (PIEs). In the detailed design of the dismantling apparatus, datailed specifications and the installation methods were examined, based on results of a conceptual design and basic design. In the trial fabrication, cutting tests were curried out by making a mockup of a cutting component. Furthermore, a preliminary investigation of a glove box facility was carried out in order to secure a facility for PIE work after the capsule dismantling, which revealed a technical feasibility.

Irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC) is considered to be one of the key issues from a viewpoint of the life management of core components in the aged Light Water Reactors. The in-situ crack extension examination and the in-situ constant load tensile test in the reactor are required for the study of IASCC. There are, however, some technical hurdles to be overcome for the experiments. For this in-situ IASCC test, techniques for assembling pre-irradiated specimens into an capsule in a hot cell by remote handling are necessary. In this report, I describe the establishment of those remote assembling techniques and development of new welding apparatus and the TIG upset welding for stainless tube of 3 mm in thickness. Already IASCC capsules having pre-irradiated CT specimens were remotely assembled using these techniques in the hot cell for performing crack growth tests under irradiation in JMTR. And eight in-situ IASCC capsules have been finished successfully in JMTR.

The irradiation capsule 74M-52J was irradiated during total 136 cycles at reactor core of JMTR and the maximum neutron dose reached on 3.9$$times$$10$$^{26}$$n/m$$^{2}$$ at the capsule outer-tube made of a type 304 stainless steel. In order to produce mechanical test specimens from the outer tube, a punching technique was developed as a simple remote-handling method in a hot-cell. From comparison between the punching and the mechanical cutting methods, it was clarified that the punching technique was applicable to practical use. Moreover, an evaluation test of mechanical properties using specimens sampled from the 74M-52 was performed in-water high temperature condition, less than 288$$^{circ}$$C. The result shows that the residual elongation is 18% at 150$$^{circ}$$C and 13% at 288$$^{circ}$$C. It was confirmed that the type 304 stainless steel irradiated up to such high dose shows enough ductility.

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).

Studies on the irradiation damage of the material of the RPV are inevitable for the LWR. Recently, the researches of annealing effect on the irradiation damage of RPV material were extensively carried out using specimens irradiated in the JMTR of the JAERI. As the next step, an annealing test of irradiated specimens and re-irradiation of annealed specimens were planned. The aim of the test is to evaluate the effect of annealing by comparing the damage of irradiated specimen, its recovery by annealing and the damage after re-irradiation. For the re-irradiation test of this study, JAERI developed a new capsule in which the specimens can be exchanged before and after annealing, and, re-irradiated afterward. The development of the capsule consisted of the design and fabrication of airtight connector for thermocouples and mechanical seal device which was fit to remote handling. Remote operation procedures for handling the radioactive capsule and for exchanging specimens were carefully performed. The results of the re-irradiation proved that the development was technically successful.
