The PFCI will be tested at JAEA Naka, inside the bore of the ITER Central Solenoid Model Coil. The main test program are the DC characterization of the conductor, the measurement of AC losses in conductor, the hydraulic characterization, the stability and the quench propagation, and the effects of cycling electromagnetic load. Based on and in support of this test program, an extensive campaign of predictive analysis has been initiated on a subset of the above-mentioned test program items and the results of the comparison of selected predictions from different laboratories will be presented and discussed. A sudden quench at 5.7-6.2 K and 45 kA is predicted. The computed temperature increase at the winding outlet is about 0.5 K for the pulse. These results will be compared with the experiment and used for an accurate prediction of the PF coil performance.

The first excited state of Ca was measured at GSI for the first time. The measured energy is found to be 3015(16) keV, which is lower than its mirror nucleus S by as large as 276 keV. The structure of those nuclei is studied by the shell model. It is found that those nuclei can be well described by the valence space. The large energy shift between them is caused by the Thomas-Ehrman effect. We presented that the energy shift in the shell region can be explained by the shell model with a phenomenological treatment of the Thomas-Ehrman effect.

As the test of the PFCI is foreseen at JAERI Naka, Japan, it is essential to consider in detail the lessons learned from the short NbTi sample tests, as well as the issues left open after them, in order to develop a suitable test program of the PFCI aimed at bridging the extrapolation gap between measured strand and future PF coil performance. Here we consider in particular the following issues: (1) the actual possibility to quench the PFCI conductor in the TCS tests before quenching the intermediate joint, (2) the question of the so-called sudden or premature quench, based on SULTAN sample results, applying a recently developed multi-solid and multi-channel extension of the Mithrandir code to a short sample analysis; (3) the feasibility of the AC losses calorimetry in the PFCI. These results show that Tcs measurement and the calorimetric measurement of AC losses will be carried out successfully. However, we need further analytic works for the problem of the sudden quench.

In the safety assessment of a high-level radioactive waste (HLW) disposal system, it is required to estimate radiological impacts on future human beings arising from potential radionuclide releases from a deep repository into the surface environment. In order to estimate the impacts, a biosphere model is developed by reasonably assuming radionuclide migration processes in the surface environment and relevant humman lifestyles. It is important to modify the present biosphere models or to develop alternative biosphere models applying the biosphere models according to quality and quantify of the information acquired through the siting process for constructing the repository. In this study, alternative biosphere models were developed taking geosphere-biosphere interface of marine environment into account. Moreover, the flux to dose conversion factors calculated by these alternative biosphere models was compared with those by the present basic biosphere models.

In the safety assessment of a high-level radioactive waste (HLW) disposal system, it is required to estimate radiological impacts on future human beings arising from potential radionuclide releases from a deep repository into the surface environment. In order to estimate the impacts, a biosphere model is developed by reasonably assuming radionuclide migration processes in the surface environment and relevant human lifestyles. Releases from the repository might not occur for many thousands of years after disposal. Over such timescales, it is anticipated that the considerable climatic change, for example, induced by the next glaciation period expected to occur in around ten thousand years from now, will have a significant influence on the near surface environment and associated human lifestyles. In case of taking these evolution effects into account in modeling, it is reasonable to develop several alternative models on biosphere evolution systems consistent with possible future conditions affected by expected climatic changes. In this study, alternative biosphere models were developed taking effects of possible climatie change into account. In the modeling, different climatic states existing in the world from the present climate condition in Japan are utilized as an analogy. Estimation of net effects of the climatic change on biosphere system was made by comparing these alternative biosphere models with a constant biosphere model consistent with the present climatic state through flux to dose conversion factors derived from each one.
