Improvement of the resuspension model for OSCAAR using the atmosphere-soil-vegetation model SOLVEG-R (Contract research)

Nakanishi, Chika*; Ota, Masakazu; Hirouchi, Jun; Takahara, Shogo

JAEA-Research 2023-012, 29 Pages, 2024/02


The OSCAAR program is a probabilistic risk assessment program for reactor accidents developed by Japan Atomic Energy Agency. To improve the model included in the OSCAAR program, which is about long-term exposure caused by the resuspension of radioactive materials deposited on soil surfaces, we calculated resuspension factors for Cs-137. The one- dimensional atmosphere-SOiL-VEGetation model, SOLVEG-R was utilized to compute resuspension factor. The wind velocity was kept constant in this study since it significantly affects particle resuspension behavior. Our calculations indicate that wind velocities below 6 m s$$^{-1}$$ resulted in little variation in the annual mean resuspension factor at a height of 1 m. However, as wind velocities increased above 6 m s$$^{-1}$$, the resuspension factor significantly increased. The resuspension factors ranged from 10$$^{-9}$$ to 10$$^{-7}$$ m$$^{-1}$$ for wind velocities ranging from 1 m s$$^{-1}$$ to 7 m s$$^{-1}$$.

ToF inelastic neutron scattering studies on quantum spin systems (CuCl)La$$B_2$$O$$_7$$ ($$B$$ = Nb, Ta)

The magnetic ground state of (CuCl)LaNb$$_2$$O$$_7$$ has been suggested to be a spin-singlet state with an excitation gap of $$Delta E sim 2.3$$ meV, while (CuCl)LaTa$$_2$$O$$_7$$ has an antiferromagnetic (AFM) ground state. The systems are suspected to be a frustrated quantum spin system due to the competition between the nearest and next-nearest exchange interactions. We have studied magnetic excitation in these systems by ToF inelastic neutron scattering technique. The measurements were performed on powder samples of (CuCl)LaNb$$_2$$O$$_7$$ and (CuCl)LaTa$$_2$$O$$_7$$ at a disk-chopper-type spectrometer AMATERAS in J-PARC. In both systems, a band-like excitation was observed at $$Delta E sim 2$$ meV. The $$Q$$ dependence of the intensity of magnetic excitation around 2 meV for (CuCl)LaNb$$_2$$O$$_7$$ well reproduces that observed at a triple-axis spectrometer, exhibiting characteristics of spin-singlet dimers. On the other hand, (CuCl)LaTa$$_2$$O$$_7$$ in the AFM state exhibits a different $$Q$$ dependence.

Development of stress conditions around a tunnel excavated in argillaceous rock related to change of saturation conditions

Uehara, Shinichi*; Kobayashi, Akira*; Chijimatsu, Masakazu*; Onishi, Yuzo*; Fujita, Tomoo

Proceedings of 2nd International Conference on Coupled T-H-M-C Processes in Geo-systems; Fundamentals, Modeling, Experiments and Applications (GeoProc 2006), p.738 - 743, 2006/05

This paper reports the results of calculations about coupled hydro-mechanical process in the domain around excavations at clay rock site at Tournemire, France. We operated the numerical modelling by using a Finite Element Method code named THAMES, on the assumption that swelling pressure is parallel to saturation ratio. The results of modelling indicated that saturation ratio changes seasonally at the domain within several tens cm from tunnel wall. This extension is similar to that of damage zone observed in the tunnel at Tournemire site in 1881, which supports the idea that the saturation-desaturation cycles has decreased the rock strength and caused damage zone extension. The modelling results also suggested that the consideration of swelling pressure could affect evolution of stress state abruptly.

We performed thermal neutron spin echo measurements on a glass-forming polymer, deuterated polybutadiene (-[CD$$_{2}$$-CD=CD-CD$$_{2}$$]$$_{n}$$-; PB-d$$_{6}$$), in a high ${it Q}$ range up to 3.5$AA $^{-1}$$ covering the first and second peaks of the structure factor S(${it Q}$), and evaluated the decay rate $$Gamma$$(${it Q}$) of the coherent intermediate scattering function as a function of ${it Q}$. In contrast to the previous experimental findings on the first peak of S(${it Q}$) at ${it Q}$ = 1.5$AA $^{-1}$$, no "de Gennes" type narrowing was observed on the second peak at ${it Q}$ = 2.9$AA $^{-1}$$. This novel finding indicates that the narrowing is hidden by the distinct motions of the soft -CD$$_{2}$$-CD$$_{2}$$- and =CD-CD$$_{2}$$- units and the self-motions of the rigid and soft units in the ${it Q}$ range around the second peak.

JAERI has a plane to develop a compact tritium gas recycling system for fusion research. This system is also very attractive for the muon-catalyzed fusion ($$mu$$CF) research at RIKEN-RAL Muon Facility in UK. For the research, JAERI has produced high purity tritium gas of 1,500 Ci and transported it to the Facility. In the $$mu$$CF experiments, the tritium gas was diluted by the deuterium in an optional concentration and the used tritium gas was carried back by the tritium transport container developed to JAERI. If it is possible to recycle the diluted tritium gas, i.e., the used tritium gas is enriched in the experimental site, the $$mu$$CF experiments should be conducted efficiently. rom the above point of view, in this paper, we propose the compact tritium gas recycling system based on the gas chromatography that has already developed in JAERI and a proton conductor.

Coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical Experiment at Kamaishi Mine Technical Note 16-99-03, Analyses of Task 2C, DECOVALEXII

Chijimatsu, Masakazu*; Fujita, Tomoo; Kobayashi, Akira*; Onishi, Yuzo*

JNC TN8400 99-031, 61 Pages, 1999/06


It is an important part of the near field performance assessment of nuclear waste disposal to evaluate couples thermo-hydro-mechanical (T-H-M) phenomena, e.g., thermal effects on groundwater flow through rock matrix and water seepage into the buffer material, the generation of swelling pressure of the buffer material, and thermal stresses potentially affecting porosity and fracture apertures of the rock. An in-situ T-H-M experiment naned 'Engineered Barrier Experiment' has been oonducted at the Kamaishi Mine, of which host rock is granodiorite, in order to establish conceptual models of the coupled T-H-M processes and to build confidence in mathematical models and computer codes. The coupled T-H-M experiment is one of tasks in DECOVALEX (DEvelopment of COupled models and their VALidation against EXperiments) project which is an international co-operative project and it is defined as Task 2. The Task 2 for the DECOVALEX project are divided into three subtasks (A-C) in accordance with the programme and availability of data, called subtasks. This note describes the results of subtask C. Subtask C is a coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical analysis in the near field.
