Technetium-99m ($$^{rm 99m}$$Tc) is used in radioactive medical diagonostic tests, for example as a radioactive tracer that medical equipment can detect in the human body. It is well suited to the role because it emits readily detectable 141 keV $$gamma$$ rays, and its half-life is 6.01 hours (meaning that about 94% of it decays to technetium-99 in 24 hours). There are at least 31 commonly used radiopharmaceuticals based on technetium-99m for imaging and functional studies of the brain, myocardium, thyroid, lungs, liver, gallbladder, kidneys, skeleton, blood, and tumors. Recent years, with the develop-ment of the Compton camera which can realize high position resolution, technetium isotopes emitting high energy $$gamma$$-rays are required. In this study, technetium-95m which emits some $$gamma$$ rays around 800 keV was produced by the $$^{95}$$Mo(p,n)$$^{rm 95m}$$Tc reaction.

Numerical predictions of crossing-flow characteristics of a supercritical fluid in parallel circular ducts with a narrow rectangular channel at isothermal condition

Takase, Kazuyuki; Misawa, Takeharu; Yoshida, Hiroyuki; Mori, Hideo*

Proceedings of 6th International Symposium on Supercritical Water-Cooled Reactors (ISSCWR-6) (CD-ROM), 9 Pages, 2013/03

Numerical analyses of crossing flows between two parallel circular channels were conducted for a specific geometry that simply modeled subchannels in a fuel bundle of a supercritical water reactor. The two parallel circular channels were connected by a rectangular channel in the axial direction. Crossing flow occurred in the rectangular channel and was caused by differences in temperatures of fluids flowing in the two channels. The working fluid was supercritical Freon. The SST turbulence model was chosen for precisely calculating the boundary layers of temperature and velocity near the channel walls. From the analytical results, relations between crossing flow and fluid temperature were clarified quantitatively.

The cation-exchange behavior of element 104, rutherfordium (Rf), was investigated together with its lighter group-4 homologues Zr and Hf, and the tetravalent pseudo-homologue Th in HF/HNO$$_{3}$$ mixed solution. The results demonstrate that distribution coefficients ($$K_{d}$$) of Rf in HF/0.10 M HNO$$_{3}$$ decrease with increasing concentration of the fluoride ion [F$$^{-}$$], indicating the consecutive formation of fluorido complexes of Rf. We also measured the $$K_{d}$$ values of Rf and the homologues as a function of the hydrogen ion concentration [H$$^{+}$$]. The log $$K_{d}$$ values decrease linearly with an increase of log [H$$^{+}$$] with slopes between -2.1 and -2.5. This indicates that these elements are likely to form the same chemical compounds: mixture of [MF]$$^{3+}$$ and [MF$$_{2}$$]$$^{2+}$$ (M = Rf, Zr, Hf and Th) in the studied solution. It is also ascertained that sequence in the fluoride complex formation is Zr $$sim$$ Hf $$>$$ Rf $$>$$ Th.

Development of LBB assessment method for Japan Sodium Cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) pipes, 4; Verification of crack opening displacement assessment method for thin wall pipes made of Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel

Wakai, Takashi; Machida, Hideo*; Yoshida, Shinji*; Kawashima, Fumiko*; Kikuchi, Koichi*; Xu, Y.*; Tsukimori, Kazuyuki

Proceedings of 2011 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2011) (CD-ROM), 10 Pages, 2011/07

This paper describes the improved COD assessment method and verifies the validity of the method based on the results of a series of four-point bending tests at elevated temperature using thin wall modified 9Cr-1Mo steel pipe containing a circumferential through wall crack. As a result, COD values calculated by the proposed method were in a good agreement with the experimental results for the uniform pipe without weld. In the case that the crack was machined at weld metal or heat affected zone (HAZ), proposed method predicted relatively larger COD than the experimental results. The causes of such discrepancies were discussed comparing with the results of finite element analyses. Based on these examinations, the rational leak rate evaluation method in LBB assessment was proposed.

Development of LBB assessment method for Japan Sodium Cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) pipes, 5; Crack growth assessment method for pipes made of Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel

Wakai, Takashi; Machida, Hideo*; Yoshida, Shinji*; Tokiyoshi, Takumi*; Kikuchi, Koichi*; Xu, Y.*; Tsukimori, Kazuyuki

Proceedings of 2011 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping Conference (PVP 2011) (CD-ROM), 8 Pages, 2011/07

This paper studies the master curve to estimate the crack length when a postulated initial crack unexpectedly grows and penetrates the pipe thickness. In order to obtain the fatigue crack and creep crack growth characteristics of modified 9Cr-1Mo steel pipes, fatigue crack and creep crack growth tests were conducted using compact tension (CT) specimens and crack growth rates for both fatigue and creep at elevated temperature were obtained. Based on the obtained material characteristics and the results of a series of crack growth calculations, a relationship between the penetrated crack length and the ratio of membrane to total stress, so called as master curve, was proposed. In this study, master curves were proposed for pipes made of modified 9Cr-1Mo steel as a function of pipe geometry, i.e. the ratio of radius to thickness.

Outline of research and development of thermal-hydraulics and safety of Japanese Supercritical Water Cooled Reactor (JSCWR) project

Nakatsuka, Toru; Mori, Hideo*; Akiba, Miyuki*; Ezato, Koichiro; Yasuoka, Makoto*

Proceedings of 5th International Symposium on Supercritical Water-Cooled Reactors (ISSCWR-5) (CD-ROM), 12 Pages, 2011/03

In the thermal-hydraulic area of Japanese Supercritical Water Cooled Reactor (JSCWR) project, the main objective is to provide high-precision heat transfer and hydraulics resistance correlations of supercritical water which are necessary for the conceptual design of the core and fuel. For this purpose, a database was constructed from literature survey and previous research results. The most suitable correlation applied for circular tubes was selected based on the database and the range of application and predictive accuracy were defined. A thermal-hydraulics analysis code has been developed based on large eddy simulation, which is selected for simulation of the heat transfer deterioration, to give detailed information of thermal-hydraulics phenomena in a fuel bundle.

The experiment of proton generation is performed for developing the laser-driven ion source. We observe proton signals in the laser-plasma interaction by using a thin-foil target. To get higher energy protons the size of the preformed plasma is reduced by changing the laser contrast level. In the high-contrast laser pulse case the maximum energy of the protons generated at rear side of the target increases.

High-intensity laser and thin-foil interactions produce high-energy particles, hard X-ray, high-order harmonics, and terahertz (THz) radiation. A proton beam driven by a high-intensity laser has received attention as a compact ion source for medical applications. In this study we have tested simultaneous generation of protons and THz radiation from a thin-foil target. We use a Ti:sapphire laser system (J-KAREN) at JAEA. A laser beam is focused by an off-axis parabolic mirror at the thin-foil target. We observed the high-energy proton in the rear side of the target and THz radiation in the reflected direction. Next, high energy protons are observed by reducing the size of preformed plasma.

We demonstrate the laser-ion acceleration from a near-critical density plasma, when amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) was used to convert a solid foil target into the lower-density target. In this work, a direct comparison is made by changing the ASE intensity by factor 3 in order to investigate the target density-dependency of the laser-ion acceleration. The beam direction of high-energy component is successfully controlled by modifying the target density. The near-critical density plasma can be a favorable target to control the beam direction to be dependent on its energy.

We measure the UV harmonics from a thin-foil target by changing the laser pulse duration in the high-energy proton generation. The maximum proton energies are around 1 MeV. In the case of the $$sim$$500 fs, the peaks of UV harmonics up to fourth-order clearly appear. The spectra are broadened and shifted at the pulse durations of $$sim$$100 fs and $$sim$$30 fs.

We characterize the electron density distributions of preformed plasma for laser-accelerated proton generation. The preformed plasma of a thin-foil target is generated by prepulse and ASE of a high-intensity Ti:sapphire laser and is measured with an interferometer using a second harmonic probe beam. High-energy protons are obtained by reducing the size of the preformed plasma by changing the ASE duration before main pulse at the front side of the target. Simulation results with two-dimensional radiation hydrodynamic code are close to the experimental results for low-density region $$sim$$4$$times$$10$$^{19}$$ cm$$^{-3}$$ at the front side.
