International round robin test on Master Curve reference temperature evaluation utilizing Miniature C(T) specimen

Yamamoto, Masato*; Onizawa, Kunio; Yoshimoto, Kentaro*; Ogawa, Takuya*; Mabuchi, Yasuhiro*; Valo, M.*; Lambrecht, M.*; Viehrig, H.-W.*; Miura, Naoki*; Soneda, Naoki*

Small Specimen Test Techniques; 6th Volume (ASTM STP 1576), p.53 - 69, 2015/05

In order to ensure the robustness of the Master Curve technique, round-robin tests were performed using 0.16 inch-thick Mini-CT specimens by different investigators to see if consistent $$T$$$$_{0}$$ values can be obtained. All the specimens used were machined and pre-cracked by one fabricator from unique Japanese RPV material. Seven institutes participated in this exercise, and obtained valid $$T$$$$_{0}$$ values according to the ASTM E1921 standard. The scatter of $$T$$$$_{0}$$ values obtained was well within the uncertainty range defined in the standard, indicating the robustness of the Mini-CT specimen test technique. Throughout this activity, we could obtain 182 $$K$$$$_{Jc}$$ for a single material. We investigated the statistics of this large database, and found that there is no remarkable difference not only in the $$T$$$$_{0}$$ values but also in the fracture toughness distribution between the Mini-CT specimen and the standard size 1T-C(T) specimen results.

A Round robin propgram of master curve evaluation using miniature C(T) specimens, 3; Comparison of $$T_{0}$$ under various selections of temperature conditions

Yamamoto, Masato*; Kimura, Akihiko*; Onizawa, Kunio; Yoshimoto, Kentaro*; Ogawa, Takuya*; Mabuchi, Yasuhiro*; Viehrig, H.-W.*; Miura, Naoki*; Soneda, Naoki*

The Master Curve (MC) approach for the fracture toughness reference temperature To is expected to be a powerful tool to ensure the reliability of long-term used RPV steels. In order to get sufficient number of data for the MC approach related to the present surveillance program for RPVs, the use of miniature specimens is important. The test technique for the miniature specimens (Mini-CT) of 4 mm thick had been verified the basic applicability of MC approach by means of Mini-CT for the determination of fracture toughness of typical Japanese RPV steels. A round robin (RR) program was organized to assure the robustness of the technique. As the third step of RR program, blinded tests were carried out. Precise material information was not provided to the participants. From the results obtained, the scatter range in $$T_{0}$$ was within the acceptable scatter range specified in the testing standard. The selection of testing temperature seems to give limited effect like that in larger specimens.

Recent progress in the energy recovery linac project in Japan

Sakanaka, Shogo*; Akemoto, Mitsuo*; Aoto, Tomohiro*; Arakawa, Dai*; Asaoka, Seiji*; Enomoto, Atsushi*; Fukuda, Shigeki*; Furukawa, Kazuro*; Furuya, Takaaki*; Haga, Kaiichi*; et al.

Proceedings of 1st International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC '10) (Internet), p.2338 - 2340, 2010/05

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.

IAEA coordinated research project on master curve approach to monitor fracture toughness of RPV steels; Final results of the experimental exercise to support constraint effects

Nanstad, R.*; Brumovsky, M.*; Callejas, R.*; Gillemot, F.*; Korshunov, M.*; Lee, B.*; Lucon, E.*; Scibetta, M.*; Minnebo, P.*; Nilsson, K.-F.*; et al.

Proceedings of 2009 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Division Conference (PVP 2009) (CD-ROM), 13 Pages, 2009/07

IAEA has developed a coordinated research project (CRP) to evaluate various issues associated with the fracture toughness Master Curve for application to light-water RPVs. Topic Area 1 of the CRP is focused on the issue of test specimen geometry effects, with emphasis on determination of reference temperature T$$_{0}$$ with the pre-cracked Charpy (PCC) specimen and the bias effect on T$$_{0}$$. Participating organizations for the experimental part of the CRP performed fracture toughness testing of various steels with various types of specimens under various conditions. Results from fracture toughness tests are compared with regard to effects of specimen size and type on the T$$_{0}$$. It is apparent from the results that the bias observed between the PCC specimen and larger specimens for Plate JRQ is not nearly as large as that obtained for other steels (-11$$^{circ}$$C to -45$$^{circ}$$C). This observation is consistent with observations in the literature that show significant variations in the bias that are dependent on the specific materials being tested.

Experimental progress on zonal flow physics in toroidal plasmas

Fujisawa, Akihide*; Ido, Takeshi*; Shimizu, Akihiro*; Okamura, Shoichi*; Matsuoka, Keisuke*; Iguchi, Harukazu*; Hamada, Yasuji*; Nakano, Haruhisa*; Oshima, Shinsuke*; Ito, Kimitaka*; et al.

Present status of experiments on zonal flows is overviewed. Innovative use of modern diagnostics has revealed the existence of zonal flows, their spatio-temporal characteristics, their relationship with turbulence, and their effects on confinement. Particularly a number of observations have been accumulated on the oscillatory branch of the zonal flow, dubbed as geodesic acoustic modes suggesting necessity of theories to give their proper description. Several new methods have elucidated the zonal flow generation processes from the turbulence. Further investigation of relationship between the zonal flows and confinement is strongly encouraged as cross-device activity.

Present status of experiments on zonal flows is overviewed. Innovative use of traditional and modern diagnostics has revealed unambiguously the existense of the zonal flows, their spatio-temporal caracteristics, their relationship with turbulence, and their effects on confinement. Particularly, a number of observations have been accumulated on the oscillatory branch of zonal flows, dubbed geodesic acoustic modes, suggesting necessity of theories to give their proper description. Furthur investigation of relationship between zonal flows and confinement is strongly encouraged as cross-device activity.

TRU waste should be isolated from biosphere for a long period of time as it includes long lived nuclides. In this study, (1) data were conected on the mechanical properties of engineered barrier materials, (2) affection on the mechanical properties of Na bentonito by salt water was studied and (3) soundness of the disposal system against changes in the volume of engineered banier was evaluated, to examine critical events related to the long-term soundness of the disposal system. Described below are the results of the studies. (1) The swelling pressure, swelling amount and permeability were obtained for a material consisting of NaCa-exchanged bentonito and silica sand with a relative weight of 30% (with a dry density of 1.6 Mgm$$^{-3}$$) by supplying saturated calcium hydroxide aqeous solution. As a result, it was confirmed that the swelling pressure and permeability were approximately estimated from the relation between these properties and the effective dry density of bentonito. (2) The swelling pressure, swelling amount and permeability were obtained for a material consisting of salty Na bentonito and silica sand with a relative weight of 30% (with a dry density of 1.6 Mgm$$^{-3}$$) by supplying artifical salt water. As a result, it was confirmed that these properties were approximately these properties of NaCa-bentonito. (3) Tests were conducted as a part of the evaluation of system soundness against changes in the volume of engineered barrier. Development of a void around bentonito was assumed. Self sealing of Na and NaCa-exchanged bentonito, and theirs water cut-off capability and swelling pressure were investigated.As a result, it was confirmed that the change of permeability and swelling pressure under self sealing of bentonito. Based on the test results (i.e. the both relations between the swelling pressure and dry density, and the permeability and dry density), soundness of the system was verified against changes of the volume of engineered barrier materials.
