The OECD/NEA Benchmark Study at the Accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (BSAF) project, which started in 2012 and continued until 2018, was one of the earliest responses to the accident at Fukushima Daiichi. The project, divided into two phases addressed the investigation of the accident at Unit 1, 2 and 3 by Severe Accident (SA) codes until 500 h focusing on thermal-hydraulics, core relocation, Molten Corium Concrete Interaction (MCCI) and fission products release and transport. The objectives of BSAF were to make up plausible scenarios based primarily on SA forensic analysis, support the decommissioning and inform SA codes modeling. The analysis and comparison among the institutes have brought up vital insights regarding the accident progression identifying periods of core meltdown and relocation, Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) and Primary Containment Vessel (PCV) leakage/failure through the comparison of pressure, water level and CAMS signatures. The combination of code results and inspections (muon radiography, PCV inspection) has provided a picture of the current status of the debris distribution and plant status. All units present a large relocation of core materials and all of them present ex-vessel debris with Unit 1 and Unit 3 showing evidences of undergoing MCCI. Uncertainties have been identified in particular on the time and magnitude of events such as corium relocation in RPV and into cavity floor, RPV and PCV rupture events. Main uncertainties resulting from the project are the large and continuous MCCI progression predicted by basically all the SA codes and the leak pathways from RPV to PCV and PCV to reactor building and environment. The BSAF project represents a pioneering exercise which has set the basis and provided lessons learned not only for code improvement but also for the development of new related projects to investigate in detail further aspects of the Fukushima Daiichi accident.


Current situation of OECD/NEA, Preparatory Study on Analysis of Fuel debris (PreADES) project

In recognition of the broad international interest in learning from post-accident examinations and other activities related to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F), Japan recommended, to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development/Nuclear energy Agency/Committee on Safety of Nuclear Installations (OECD/NEA/CSNI) in 2013, that they identified and followed up on opportunities to address safety research gaps. The CSNI set up the Senior Expert Group (SEG) on Safety Research Opportunities Post-Fukushima (SAREF). In 2016-2017, Preparatory Study on Analysis of Fuel Debris (PreADES) project was recommended by the SEG on SAREF as a near-term project. The PreADES project will summarize the collected knowledge and expertise of debris characterization and identify the needs for debris analyses that will most contribute to the decommissioning of 1F. The project also aims to improve the understanding of severe accidents and reactor safety assessments as well as creating appropriate and optimal methodologies for future debris sampling, retrieval, and storage. Consequently, the project provides important input for a future international project of sample examination based on long-term considerations. The PreADES project launched discussions among interested organizations at the preliminary meeting in July 2017 about the objectives, scope, output, and direction of the project. The contents of the PreADES project were agreed as the three following tasks: Task 1: Joint study on fuel debris' expected properties and characterization, Task 2: Identifying needs and major issues for future fuel debris sampling, retrieval, and analyses, Task 3: Planning of future international R&D framework. Currently, 4th meeting took place on July in Tokyo Japan. Task 1 is almost completed and Task 2 will be summarized soon.

A large-scale Molten Core-Concrete Interaction (MCCI) test (VF-U1) under the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F) conditions (core material composition, concrete, and decay heat) was conducted at the large MCCI test facility (VULCANO) owned by French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in France. About 50 kg of simulated debris was melted and brought into contact with concrete to erode concrete under 1F conditions. After cooling, the concrete test section (concrete and MCCI product) was dismantled. Main observations of the structure of solidified pool (crust, porosity, oxide/metal layer, etc.) and of the ablation are given. The technical results obtained herein are summarized, and they provide interesting knowledge that will help with the decommissioning of 1F.

Fuel debris removal is one of the most important processes for decommissioning a severely damaged nuclear power plant (NPP) such as Fukushima Daiichi NPP (1F). In order to develop relevant removal tools, characteristics of fuel debris are required. In the frame of a JAEA-CEA cooperation, a large-scale MCCI test was performed at the CEA/VULCANO facility using a prototypic metal and oxide corium representative from Fukushima Daiichi unit 1 conditions. Conclusions arising from the material analysis of the selected samples will be relevant for future dismantling operations. This paper deals with the experimental device and process, objective and initial conditions of this MCCI test, and ablation of the concrete quantified in term of volume, depths and velocities. The test section concrete, made with Japanese components, is siliceous with basaltic origin. The main objective of the test was to get a significant ablation leading to an ablation volume ratio of 1.6 in order to produce fuel debris with a composition corresponding to expected conditions in the damaged plant. On a phenomenological point of view, it must be noted that the concrete ablation was clearly anisotropic with a predominantly downwards ablation contrary to previous experiments with silica and limestone concrete.
