This is a report on Abrasive Water Jet (AWJ) cutting work carried out on specimen, which was used for Simulated Fuel Assembly Heating Examination by Collaborative Laboratories for Advanced Decommissioning Science (CLADS) molten core behavior analysis group in February 2016. The simulated fuel assembly is composed of Zirconia for the outer crucible/simulated fuel, stainless steel for the control blade and Zircaloy (Zr) for the cladding tube/channel box. Therefore, it is necessary to cut at once substances having a wide range of fracture toughness and hardness. Moreover, it is a large specimen with an approximate size of 300 mm. In addition, epoxy resin has high stickiness, making it more difficult to cut. Considering these effects, AWJ cutting was selected. The following two points were devised, and this specimen could be cut with AWJ. If it was not possible to cut at one time like a molten portion of boride, it was repeatedly cut. By using Abrasive Suspension Jet (ASJ) system with higher cutting ability than Abrasive Injection Jet (AIJ, conventional method) system, cutting time was shortened. As a result of this work, the cutting method in Simulated Fuel Assembly Heating Examination was established. Incidentally, in the cutting operation, when the cutting ability was lost at the tip of the AWJ, a curved cut surface, which occurs when the jet flowed away from the feeding direction, could be confirmed at the center of the test body. From the next work, to improve the cutting efficiency, we propose adding a mechanism such as turning the cutting member itself for re-cutting from the exit side of the jet and appropriate traverse speed to protect cut surface.

Evaluation and demonstration of cutting the fuel assembly heating examination by AWJ

It is essential to estimate characteristics and forms of fuel debris for safe and reliable removing at the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F). For the estimation, melting behavior of fuel assembly in the accident is being researched. To proceed the research, the fuel debris were need to cut, and the abrasive water jet (AWJ) which had enough results for cutting ceramic material or mixed material of zirconium alloy and stainless. The test results demonstrated that AWJ could cut the fuel assembly and accumulated the cutting data which will be subservient when removing the fuel debris in future.

Applicability of AWJ technique for dismantling reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station; Cutting test of imitation of fuel debris and optimization of the cutting condition

Based on findings made during recovery works that followed the accident at Three Mile Island Station2, we assume that the reactor internals at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F) have intermixed with melted fuel and confined in limited spaces, they are likely to have complex geometries. Accordingly, abrasive water jet (AWJ) cutting method is considered to be a candidate technique that can be safely and reasonably used for cutting and removing reactor internals. We conducted tests to examine the potential of this technique. We have test for solving the problems of this technique. They are using imitation of fuel debris and optimization of the cutting condition. Based on the results, we confirmed the plan for some of the associated issues, and that AWJ cutting method would be assumed as a candidate technique for removing reactor internals.

The J-PARC E56 experiment aims to search for sterile neutrinos at the J-PARC Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF). In order to examine the feasibility of the experiment, we measured the background rates of different detector candidate sites, which are located at the third floor of the MLF, using a detector consisting of plastic scintillators with a fiducial mass of 500 kg. The gammas and neutrons induced by the beam as well as the backgrounds from the cosmic rays were measured, and the results are described in this article.

Abrasive water jet (AWJ), is to shoot the abrasive mixed with high-pressure water to the material for cutting, can cut most materials like metals and concretes in water with long stand-off means the length from the cutting head to the material for cutting. On the other hand, AWJ is required to reduce an amount of the abrasive because it becomes the waste. It is also difficult to monitor the cutting condition by any visual methods like a TV camera in the water becoming cloudy by both used abrasive and cut metal grit. For solving these issues, some cutting tests were conducted and (1) It was possible to predict an optimal supply rate of abrasive by considering the conservation of momentum between the water jet and the abrasive. (2) It was also possible to judge whether the material could be cut successfully or not by detecting the change in the frequency characteristics of vibration or sound caused during the cutting process.

The advanced thermal reactor (Fugen) at Fugen Decommissioning Engineering Center is characterized by its tube-cluster construction. As a part of the study of dismantling, we are considering the abrasive water jet (AWJ) technique that could be used for the dismantlement techniques of double-tubes (pressure tube and calandria tube) as one of possible methods. As a part of tests, we confirmed the possibility of abrasive recycle for cutting and the applicability of cutting monitoring technique for reducing the volume of secondary wastes and developing the cutting monitoring technique in the water.
