In this research program, cladding oxidation model in SFP accident condition, and numerical simulation method to evaluate capability of spray cooling system which was deployed for spent fuel cooling during SFP accident, have been developed. These were introduced into the severe accident codes such as MAAP and SAMPSON, and SFP accident analyses were conducted. Analyses using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code were conducted as well for the comparison with SA code analyses and investigation of detail in the SFP accident. In addition, three-dimensional criticality analysis method was developed as well, and safer loading pattern of spent fuels in pool was investigated.

In this paper, modification of the SAMPSON code was carried out to enable the analysis of spray cooling. The SAMPSON analysis of a spray cooling experiment was performed to confirm reproducibility of spray cooling behavior of fuel claddings. The modified SAMPSON code was applied to a hypothetical loss-of-coolant accident analysis of the SFP. Effectiveness of spray cooling on cladding temperature behavior was investigated. The SAMPSON analysis showed that spraying from the top of the SFP was effective for cooling the fuel assemblies exposed to the gas phase.

Measurement of void fraction distribution in a 4$$times$$4 fuel bundle under high pressure condition for validation of two-phase CFD code

Nagatake, Taku; Shibata, Mitsuhiko; Uesawa, Shinichiro; Ono, Ayako; Yoshida, Hiroyuki

In the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, reactor cores were cooled by natural circulation due to pump trip. To investigate the accident progress of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, it is important to understand the thermal hydraulic behavior in reactor cores including fuel bundles. Flow rate inside cores was relatively low in the natural circulation conditions, then, thermal-hydraulic behavior in the fuel bundles was different from that in the normal operating conditions. To evaluate thermal hydraulic behavior under the accidental conditions, we are developing the numerical simulation codes named TPFIT and ACE3D. These codes are based on two-phase computational fluid dynamics and can simulate the two-phase flow inside fuel bundles including low flow rate condition. Before applying these codes to the thermal-hydraulic behavior, the applicability of these codes must be confirmed. Then, in this study, in order to obtain a validation data for TPFIT and ACE3D code, thermal hydraulic experiment was performed by using test section with a simulated fuel bundle with 4$$times$$4 unheated rods. In this simulated fuel bundle, there were wire mesh sensors, and void fraction distribution data inside the simulated fuel bundle under high pressure condition (max. 2.6 MPa) was obtained. The one of the advantage of wire mesh sensor is that a void fraction distribution of cross section at the same time can be measured. In this paper, void fraction distribution of two-phase flow in a simulated fuel bundle under high pressure condition are reported.

Study on spray cooling capability for spent fuel pool at coolant loss accident, 1; Research plan

The Fukushima Daiichi NPP accident asks that the accident management of the LOCA in the SFPs must be considered to avoid occurrences of severe accident in the SFPs. To prevent the failure of the spent fuel assemblies at the LOCA, transportable spray systems are expected to be put into use to discharge water into fuel assemblies to moderate the temperature increase. To apply the spray system as a countermeasure for the LOCA of the SFP, the capability of the spray cooling system must be evaluated to keep the spent fuel rods safety. JAEA has started the research project to investigate the spray cooling capability for the SFP. In this research project, we aim to construct a numerical simulation method for evaluating the capability of the spray cooling. To develop the method, the basic key phenomena that affect the cooling performance must be clarified and the validation data required for the code development. To clarify the basic key phenomena that affect the cooling performance, that is, the CCFL and the drop size effect on the CCFL, and to obtain the code validation data, we are planning to carry out 2 experiments with two test sections, the spray visualization experiment and the spray cooling experiment. The spray visualization test section aims to get CCFL data in air-water two-phase flow and to understand the two-phase flow behavior over the upper tie plate. The spray cooling test section aims to get the CCFL data in steam-water two-phase flow and to obtain the validation data. This paper focus on the outline of the research plan for the whole research project.

To contribute the clarification of the Fukushima Daiichi Accident, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has been performed experiments to obtain void fraction distribution data, including detailed bubble information such as bubble velocity and size, in steam-water two-phase flow in rod bundle geometry under high pressure and high temperature condition, focusing on low flow rate at the core natural circulation flow condition after the reactor scram. In this research, experimental apparatus for measuring void fraction distribution in the 4$$times$$4 rod bundle was constructed. To measure the void fraction distribution under high pressure and high temperature condition (up to 2.8 MPa, 232 $$^{circ}$$C), two wire mesh sensors (WMSs) were installed. To confirm the applicability of the installed WMSs and the measuring system for two-phase flow in rod bundle, experiments in air-water two-phase flow under atmospheric pressure and room temperature were performed. As a result, it was confirmed that the installed WMSs can be applicable to the two-phase flow in rod bundle. Measured results, such as instantaneous and time-averaged void fraction distribution in the rod bundle, average void fraction across the cross section of the flow channel, bubble length and velocity, were also reported.

To contribute to the clarification of the Fukushima Daiichi Accident, JAEA is working on getting instantaneous void fraction distribution data in steam water two - phase flow in rod bundle geometry under high pressure, high temperature condition, with using Wire Mesh Sensor (WMS) developed at JAEA for high pressure, high temperature condition, focusing on the low flow rate condition after the reactor scram. This paper reports the experimental results for the measured void fraction distribution in steam vapor two-phase flow in a 4 $$times$$ 4 bundle under 1.6 MPa (202 $$^{circ}$$C), 2.1 MPa (215 $$^{circ}$$C) and 2.6 MPa (226 $$^{circ}$$C) conditions. The data is expected to be used in the validation of the detailed two-phase flow codes TPFIT and ACE3D developed at JAEA. The time and space averaged void fraction data is also expected being used in the validation of the drift flux models implemented in the two fluids codes, such as TRACE code.

In Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, seawater was injected into the nuclear core, which may change the heat transfer characteristics in the reactor pressure vessels (RPV) due to the different physical properties of seawater and pure water. To remove molten fuel from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plants, it is necessary to know the current status of the reactors. Therefore, in this paper, we measured the basic thermal-hydraulic data in an annular tube with a co-axial heater, which includes the heat transfer rate and the pressure drop, using the sodium chloride aqueous solutions and the synthetic seawater as working fluids. The experiments were performed under atmosphere pressure, with the salinity, the fluid mass flux, the inlet temperature and the heat flux used as the parameters. The experimental results and analyses are reported in this paper and the basic influence of the salinity on the heat transfer and the hydraulic characters are proposed.
