The high-performance computer system Helios which is located at The Computational Simulation Centre (CSC) in The International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC) started its operation in January 2012 under the Broader Approach (BA) agreement between Japan and the EU. The Helios system has been used for magnetised fusion related simulation studies in the EU and Japan and has kept high average usage rate. As a result, the Helios system has contributed to many research products in a wide range of research areas from core plasma physics to reactor material and reactor engineering. This project review gives a short catalogue of domestic simulation research projects. First, we outline the IFERC-CSC project. After that, shown are objectives of the research projects, numerical schemes used in simulation codes, obtained results and necessary computations in future.

"Geoscientific research" performed at the Tono Geoscience Center is developing site investigation, characterization and assessment techniques for understanding of geological environment. Their important themes are to establish a methodology for analyzing uncertainties in heterogeneous geological environment, and to develop investigation techniques for reducing the uncertainties efficiently. This study proposes a new approach where all the possible options in the models and data-sets that cannot be excluded in the light of the evidence available, are identified. This approach enables uncertainties associated with the understanding at a given stage of the site characterization to be made explicitly using an uncertainty analysis technique based on Fuzzy geostatistics. This, in turn, supports the design of the following investigation stage to reduce the uncertainties efficiently. In the study, current knowledge had been compiled, and the technique had been advanced through geological modeling and groundwater analyses in the Tono area. This report systematized the uncertainty analysis methodology associated with the characterization of the geological environment, and organized the procedure of the methodology with the application examples in the study. This report also dealt with investigation techniques for reducing the uncertainties efficiently, and underground facility design options for handling geological uncertainties based on the characterization of the geological environment.

"Geoscientific research" at the Tono Area is developing site investigation, characterization and assessment techniques for understanding of geological environment. Their important goal is to establish a methodology for analyzing uncertainties in a heterogeneous geological environment and to develop investigation techniques for efficiently reducing the uncertainties. In Fiscal Year 17, in addition to information from the MIZ-1 borehole investigation, present knowledge has been compiled. The proposed technique has been improved through conceptual geological modeling and groundwater analyses at the Tono Area. Design options for handling geological uncertainties based on the characterization of the geological environment have also been tested. The results of this study can be summarized as follows: (1) It was shown that the fracture group with NW strike has high correlation with maximum measured transmissivity. This was maybe caused by the effect of regional in situ stress. (2) Through conceptual geological modelling and groundwater analysis, a procedure for modelling of the geological environment with heterogeneous characteristics was proposed. (3) From the viewpoint of improving the design of an underground facility, the existence of uncertainties of the geological environment with heterogeneous characteristics requests multiple options. A design option should be adapted to the geological environment with heterogeneous characteristics.

Their important goals are to establish a methodology for analyzing uncertainties in heterogeneous geological environment and to develop investigation techniques for efficiently reducing the uncertainties. The current study proposes a new approach where all the possible options in the models and data-sets, which cannot be excluded in the light of the evidences available, are identified. This approach enables uncertainties associated with the understanding at a given stage of the site characterization to be made explicitly using an uncertainty analysis technique based on Fuzzy geostatistics. This approach supports the design of the following investigation stage and reduces the uncertainties efficiently. In FY H16 the technique has been tested through geological modelling and groundwater analyses with Tono Area case based on current knowledge, to demonstrate its applicability and to compile the knowledge / information required to describe the H17 report. This report can be summarized as follows: (1) The knowledge / information required to describe the heterogeneous characteristics was compiled and connected to uncertainties associated with the characterization of a geological environment using a synthesis diagram. (2) Methodologies for assignment and screening of parameters were developed by using Evidential Support Logic (ESL). (3) Applicability of the techniques could be confirmed with Tono Area case. (4) This report proposed a new methodology that integrates the technique into JAEA ordinary technique to good advantage in the geoscientific research project.

Based on the results and experiences obtained from the tunnel sealing experiments in the Canadian underground research laboratory in crystalline rock under the collaboration with JNC (now JAEA), this report summarizes the requirements for closure components such as backfilling material and hydraulic plug from the viewpoint of expected barrier performance, taking account of key issues on sealing technologies which have been left open after H12 project. The results of the tunnel sealing experiments indicate that the constructability of closure components and low permeability of the hydraulic plug is well performed. Requirements for the closure components and key issues for further study are identified from the viewpoint of barrier performance considering a range of events related to the sealing and taking account of where these are occurred as well as appropriate countermeasure for them. It is also discussed how to apply these preferable closure components to the scale of repository layout, and further technical issues are then identified.

Suyama, Yasuhiro*; Toida, Masaru*; Masumoto, Kazuhiko*; Takeuchi, Shinji

Proceedings of 12th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (Near Surface 2006) (CD-ROM), 5 Pages, 2006/09

The EDZ is considered to be a fast transport pathway and provides a boundary condition for transport in bentonite buffers in groundwater scenarios for the geological disposal of radioactive waste. The distribution of the EDZ obtained through in-situ measurements, is important for safety assessments. High-resolution Ground Penetrating Radar (HGPR) with modulating frequency functions as a wide-angle measurement technique. It is one of the advanced techniques that can be used to investigate the EDZ of a radioactive waste disposal tunnel. Verification tests of the HGPR were carried out using a model and in-situ, in the gallery of Tono mine in central Japan. In summary, it is shown that the investigation technique was able to detect underground structures with a resolution of less than 0.1m.

To establish sealing technique suitable for geological environmental conditions of Japan, it is necessary to obtain data related with this sealing function through laboratory tests and in-situ tests. It also is necessary to put these data to practical use and to establish the estimating method of the sealing technique.Tunnel sealing experiment, which has been carried out as collaboration between JNC and AECL at URL of AECL Canada, is progressing in the final stage and fundamental data relating with the sealing function has almost obtained. This report deals with the total data processing and interpretation of the sealing experiment, as well as the numerical analysis and interpretation on tracer test results. Conceptual plans of the experiment to confirm the performance of tunnel sealing technique in a sedimentary rock are also discussed.
