The desire for intrinsically low lattice thermal conductivity ($$kappa_L$$) in thermoelectrics motivates numerous efforts on understanding the microscopic mechanisms of heat transport in solids. Here, based on theoretical calculations, we demonstrate that $$alpha$$-MgAgSb hosts low-energy localized phonon bands and avoided crossing of the rattler modes, which coincides with the inelastic neutron scattering result. Using the two-channel lattice dynamical approach, we find, besides the conventional contribution ($$sim$$70% at 300 K) from particlelike phonons propagating, the coherence contribution dominated by the wavelike tunneling of phonons accounts for $$sim$$30% of total $$kappa_L$$ at 300 K. By considering dual contributions, our calculated room-temperature $$kappa_L$$ of 0.64 Wm$$^{-1}$$K$$^{-1}$$ well agrees with the experimental value of 0.63 Wm$$^{-1}$$K$$^{-1}$$. More importantly, our computations give a nonstandard $$kappa_L propto T^{-0.61}$$ dependence, perfectly explaining the abnormal temperature-trend of $$sim T^{-0.57}$$ in experiment for $$alpha$$-MgAgSb. By molecular dynamics simulation, we reveal that the structure simultaneously has soft crystalline sublattices with the metavalent bonding and fluctuating liquid-like sublattices with thermally induced large amplitude vibrations. These diverse forms of chemical bonding arouse mixed part-crystal part-liquid state, scatter strongly heat-carrying phonons, and finally produce extremely low $$kappa_L$$. The fundamental research from this study will accelerate the design of ultralow-$$kappa_L$$ materials for energy-conversion applications.

The quasi-static superelastic responses and hierarchical martensite transformation from body-centered cubic (BCC) to face-centered cubic (FCC) under dynamic impact in Fe$$_{42}$$Mn$$_{34}$$Al$$_{15}$$Ni$$_{7.5}$$Ti$$_{1.5}$$ alloys were investigated. Polycrystalline and oligocrystalline alloys were produced through solution heat treatment and cyclic heat treatment processes, respectively. The results show the volume fraction of residual martensite for oligocrystalline alloys is lower, which exhibits better superelastic responses compared with polycrystalline alloys. Dynamic impact tests indicate that, despite the weakening of the grain boundary strengthening effect, the ultimate strength of the oligocrystalline alloys closely matches that of the polycrystalline alloys under dynamic impact. The martensite transformation of the FeMnAlNiTi alloy is characterized as hierarchical under dynamic impact, and increasing strain rates and grain sizes can enhance the BCC $$rightarrow$$ FCC martensite transformation, resulting in higher martensite phase fractions for oligocrystalline alloys. The increase in ultimate strength is attributed to the dynamic Hall-Petch effect introduced by more martensite phase interfaces under dynamic impact.


A Study on the fracture pattern change of high-burnup fuel cladding failed by pellet-cladding mechanical interaction failure under reactivity-initiated accident conditions

Li, F.; 三原 武; 宇田川 豊

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 11 Pages, 2024/00

In a part of the reactivity-initiated accident (RIA) simulated tests on high-burnup fuels performed at the Nuclear Safety Research Reactor, the fuel failure caused by pellet-cladding mechanical interaction (PCMI) led to splitting into upper- and lower-part pieces or even fragmentation of the cladding tube. A massive release of fuel fragments accompanied this fracture pattern change from previously known axial cracks and thus identified as a potential concern in safety evaluation regarding core coolability. Dedicated out-of-pile mechanical tests were performed with unirradiated Zircaloy-4 cladding specimens to clarify the fracture pattern change conditions. The specimens were pre-hydrided and subjected to loading with axial-to-hoop strain ratios of 0.5-1.25, simulating the effects of hydrogen embrittlement and pellet-cladding mechanical bonding of high-burnup fuels, respectively. The results indicate that higher biaxiality of the loading and lower ductility (failure strain level) assist the fracture pattern change. This study proposes a conservative criterion that a PCMI failure splits the cladding tube into more than two pieces when strain ratio is greater than 0.75 and a concurrent hoop strain $$<$$ 1.7% at the failure instant.

We investigated the angular correlation of two $$gamma$$-rays emitted in neutron capture at the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility of J-PARC. The 14 Ge crystals in a cluster detector and one coaxial Ge crystal were employed. We obtained angular correlation functions for two $$gamma$$-rays emerging in the electromagnetic transitions of the capture reactions on $$^{155}$$Gd and $$^{157}$$Gd. We found mild angular correlations for the strong, but rare transitions from the resonance state to two excited levels with known spin and parities. In contrast, angular correlations was negligibly small for arbitrary pairs of two $$gamma$$-rays produced in the majority of transitions in continuum states.

The Effect of a cyclic bending load on the bending resistance of ballooned, ruptured, and oxidized Zircaloy-4 cladding

Li, F.; 成川 隆文; 宇田川 豊

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 12 Pages, 2023/00

The seismic resistance of fuel cladding during the long-term core cooling after loss-of-coolant accidents (LOCAs) was investigated by performing cyclic four-point bending tests (4PBTs) of up to 1000 cycles with fresh fuel cladding samples that experienced integral thermal shock test, simulating LOCA conditions, including ballooning, rupture, oxidation, and quench. 4PBTs were performed on the samples that survived the quenching process. The results showed that up to 1000 cycles and 5.8 Nm of cyclic loading moment, there was no apparent effect on the bending fracture limit of the fuel cladding under the 4PBT. The scatter of the bending fracture limit for a given equivalent cladding reacted (ECR) evaluated by the Baker-Just oxidation rate equation (BJ-ECR) is attributed to two primary factors: first, the difference between the prescribed and the actual oxidation behavior, confirmed by comparing the BJ-ECR and the ECR evaluated based on metallographic observation (M-ECR), and second, the variated shape of the rupture-opening area after the integral thermal shock test. The strength of the alpha phase-dominant zone near the rupture opening seems to contribute to the bending fracture limit.

The mechanical properties of fuel cladding near the elastic limit are essential in considering its failure limit during a pellet-cladding mechanical interaction phase under reactivity-initiated accident (RIA) conditions. The mechanical properties of a Zircaloy-4 cladding tube, such as orthotropic elasticity and anisotropic constants for Hill's plasticity law, were evaluated based on the biaxial stress test data, focusing on the equivalent plastic strain up to ~2.5%. Samples with various fabrication conditions, such as cold-worked, recrystallized, and stress relieved after cold-work with Q-factors of 2, 3, and 4 were investigated. The cold worked samples and recrystallized samples showed high yield stress and Young's modulus, respectively. The evaluated mechanical properties of the stress relieved samples revealed a limited impact of Q-factors on mechanical behavior, including their anisotropic feature. The derived mechanical properties were applied to evaluate the fracture mechanics parameter, J-integral, based on failure limit data from biaxial-expansion-due-to-compression tests on precracked tubes. This evaluation produced systematically lower J-integral values of the stress relieved tube than previously evaluated based on the failure limit data from in-pile RIA-simulated tests.

The selenium isotopes lie at the heart of a tumultuous region of the nuclear chart where shape coexistence effects grapple with neutron-proton pairing correlations, triaxiality, and the impending proton dripline. In this work a study of $$^{72}$$Se by internal conversion electron and $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy was undertaken with the SPICE and TIGRESS arrays. New measurements of the branching ratio and lifetime of the $$0_2^+$$ state were performed yielding a determination of $$rho^2(E0; 0_2^+{rightarrow}0_1^+)=29(3)$$ milliunits. Two state mixing calculations were performed that highlighted the importance of interpretation of such $$E0$$ strength values in the context of shape-coexistence.

The current HORIZON-2020 project on "Management and Uncertainties of Severe Accidents (MUSA)" aims at applying Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) in the modeling of Severe Accidents (SA), particularly in predicting the radiological source term of mitigated and unmitigated accident scenarios. Within its application part, the project is devoted to the uncertainty quantification of different severe accident codes when predicting the radiological source term of selected severe accident sequences of different nuclear power plant designs, e.g. PWR, VVER, and BWR. Key steps for this investigation are, (a) the selection of severe accident sequences for each reactor design, (b) the development of a reference input model for the specific design and SA-code, (c) the selection of a list of uncertain model parameters to be investigated, (d) the choice of an UQ-tool e.g. DAKOTA, SUSA, URANIE, etc., (e) the definition of the figures of merit for the UA-analysis, (f) the performance of the simulations with the SA-codes, and, (g) the statistical evaluation of the results using the capabilities, i.e. methods and tools offered by the UQ-tools. This paper describes the project status of the UQ of different SA codes for the selected SA sequences, and the technical challenges and lessons learnt from the preparatory and exploratory investigations performed.

中性子過剰核$$^{54}$$Caでは、新魔法数34が発見されて以来、その構造を知るために多くの実験がなされてきたが、それを超える中性子過剰核の情報は全く知られてこなかった。本論文では、理化学研究所RIBFにて$$^{55}$$K, $$^{55}$$Ca, $$^{57}$$Caの励起状態から脱励起するガンマ線を初めて観測した結果を報告した。それぞれ1つのガンマ線しか得られなかったものの、$$^{55}$$Kおよび$$^{55}$$Caのデータは、それぞれ、陽子の$$d_{3/2}$$$$s_{1/2}$$軌道間のエネルギー差、中性子の$$p_{1/2}$$$$f_{5/2}$$軌道間のエネルギー差を敏感に反映し、両方とも最新の殻模型計算によって200keV程度の精度で再現できることがわかった。また、1粒子状態の程度を特徴づける分光学的因子を実験データと歪曲波インパルス近似による反応計算から求め、その値も殻模型計算の値と矛盾しないことがわかった。

3mol/kgのRbCl水溶液におけるイオンの水和・会合と水素結合した水の構造を、298K/0.1MPa, 298K/1GPa, 523K/1GPa, 523K/4GPaにおける中性子回折と経験的ポテンシャル構造精密化モデリングにより調べた。その結果、構造パラメータは温度と圧力に依存していることがわかった。高圧・高温条件では、Rb$$^+$$とCl$$^-$$の第二水和層がより明確になる。第一水和層におけるRb$$^+$$の平均酸素配位数は、配位距離を0.290nmから0.288nmに縮めながら、常圧では6.3だったのが、4GPaでは8.9に増加した。第一水和シェルのCl$$^-$$の平均酸素配位数は、常圧で5.9、4GPaで9.1と圧力により増加し、対応する配位距離は0.322nmから0.314nmへと減少した。Rb$$^+$$と中心の水分子の第一溶媒和シェルにおける水双極子の配向は圧力に敏感であるが、Cl$$^-$$の第一溶媒和シェルにおける水双極子の配向は温度圧力によらずあまり変化しなかった。Rb$$^+$$-Cl$$^-$$の隣接イオンペアの数は、温度が高くなると減少し、圧力が高くなると増加する。水分子は密に詰まっており、極限状態では水分子の四面体水素結合ネットワークはもはや存在しない。
