Hozengaku, 19(4), p.115 - 122, 2021/01

In order to improve both safety and economic efficiency of a nuclear power plant, it is necessary to realize rational maintenance based on characteristics of the plant. The prototype fast-breeder reactor in Japan, Monju, spent most of the year for the maintenance. Thus, it is important to identify causes of the prolonged maintenance of Monju and to investigate countermeasures for implementation of rational maintenance of next-generation fast reactors. In this study, the authors investigated the causes of the prolonged maintenance of Monju during reactor cold shutdown based on the plant schedule of Monju. In addition, we proposed the maintenance optimization idea for next-generation fast reactors to solve the revealed issues.

We have upgraded a 3-MeV linac at J-PARC. The ion source is same as the J-PARC linac's, and the old 30-mA RFQ is replaced by a spare 50-mA RFQ, therefore, the beam energy is 3 MeV and the nominal beam current is 50 mA. The main purpose of this system is to test the spare RFQ, but also used for testing of various components required in order to keep the stable operation of the J-PARC accelerator. The accelerator has been already commissioned, and measurement programs have been started. In this paper, present status of this 3-MeV linac is presented.

The Cryogenics and Magnets group in the Sample Environment team is responsible for operation of cryostats and magnets for user's experiments at the MLF in J-PARC. We have introduced a top-loading $$^4$$He cryostat, a bottom-loading $$^3$$He cryostat, a dilution refrigerator insert and a superconducting magnet. The frequency of use of them dramatically becomes higher in these two years, as the beam power and the number of proposal increase. To respond such situation, we have made efforts to enhance performance of these equipment as follows. The $$^3$$He cryostat originally involves an operation software for automatic initial cooling down to the base temperature and automatic re-charge of $$^3$$He. Recently we made an additional program for automatic temperature control with only the sorb heater. Last year, a new outer vacuum chamber of the magnet with an oscillating radial collimator (ORC) was fabricated. The data quality was drastically improved by introducing this ORC so that the magnet can be used even for the inelastic neutron scattering experiments.

There are elemental liquid metals with complex structures far from the hard sphere (HS) packing model. Liquid Bi has an asymmetric first peak in the structure factors S(Q). The pair distribution function g(r) exhibits strange distance ratio of 1:2 between the first and the second peaks. Since a HS model with two kinds of radius produces asymmetry of the main peak in S(Q), existence of short-lived covalent bonds was discussed. Contrarily, modulation of the atomic distribution by the Friedel oscillations of shielding electrons around metallic ions was discussed. To examine its bonding nature from viewpoints of dynamic correlation functions, we have measured neutron quasielastic scattering of liquid Bi by using cold disk chopper spectrometer installed at MLF of J-PARC. The van Hove function revealed that the shoulder structure located at a longer side of the first peak in g(r) exhibits a longer relaxation time than the main structures such as the first and second peaks.

Diffuse neutron scattering measurement on BaF$$_{2}$$ crystals was performed at 10 K and 295 K. Oscillatory form in the diffuse scattering intensity of BaF$$_{2}$$ was observed at 295 K. The correlation effects among thermal displacements of F-F atoms were obtained from the analysis of oscillatory diffuse scattering intensity. From the values of correlation effects and Debye-Waller temperature parameters, force constants among the first and second nearest neighboring atoms of BaF$$_{2}$$, were determined to be 4.40 and 2.30 eV/$AA$^{2}$$ at 295 K, respectively

Numerical analysis of air-hydrogen mixture flow in rectangular indoor space with ventilators

Sugiyama, Hitoshi*; Takahashi, Keita*; Kato, Naoto*; Terada, Atsuhiko; Kamiji, Yu; Hino, Ryutaro

Jidosha Gijutsukai Gakujutsu Koenkai Zensatsushu, (109-14), p.5 - 10, 2014/10

Numerical analysis has been performed for vertical buoyant flow of air-hydrogen mixture in rectangular indoor space with ventilators. The unsteady and laminar flow has been calculated by using the coupled conservation equations of hydrogen and momentum. Calculated results are compared with the experiment data of hydrogen concentration and velocity profile in order to confirm the validity of the presented numerical method and clarify the mechanism of hydrogen dispersion. Although agreement is certainly not perfect in all detail, the main features are reasonably reproduced. Adding to this, calculated results suggest that hydrogen concentration depends on Froude number.

A TPC has been developed for J-PARC E42 experiment to search for H-dibaryon in ($$K^-$$, $$K^+$$) reaction. An event with 2 $$pi^-$$ and 2 protons decaying from H-dibaryon is searched for inside the TPC. The TPC has octagonal prism shape drift volume with about 50 cm diameter with 55 cm drift length filled with Ar-CH$$_{4}$$ (90:10) gas. At the end of the drift volume, 3-layer GEMs are equipped. In order to analyze momenta of produced particles, the TPC is applied with 1 T dipole magnetic field parallel to the drift electric field with a superconducting Helmholz magnet. In order to maximize the acceptance of H-dibaryon events, a diamond target is installed inside the TPC drift volume, in a cylindrical hole opened from the top to the middle of the drift volume. Since extremely high-rate $$K^-$$ beam is directly injected into the TPC drift volume to the target, a gating grid and GEMs are adopted to suppress positive-ion feedback.

Atom Indonesia, 36(3), p.121 - 124, 2010/12

Diffuse neutron scattering measurement on Cu crystals was performed at 10 K and 300 K and the observed diffuse scattering intensities were analyzed by including the correlation effects among thermal displacements of atoms in the theory. Using the values of correlation effects among neighboring atoms and the values of Debye-Waller temperature parameter, force constants among first, second and third nearest neighboring atoms had been evaluated. The estimated values of force constants among first, second and third nearest neighboring atoms of Cu were 5.58, 3.63 and 2.37 eV/${AA}$ $$^{2}$$ at 300 K, respectively. The relation between correlation effects and the inter-atomic distance is not depending much on the crystal binding types.

The ground-state bands of $$^{248,250,252}$$Cf have been established up to 10$$^{+}$$, 12$$^{+}$$, and 10$$^{+}$$ states, respectively, by in-beam $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy using neutron-transfer reactions with a $$^{18}$$O beam and a highly radioactive Cf target. The deexcitation $$gamma$$ rays in $$^{248,250,252}$$Cf were identified by taking coincidences with outgoing particles of $$^{16-19}$$O measured with Si $$Delta E$$-$$E$$ detectors, and by selecting their kinetic energies. This is the first in-beam $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy for Cf isotopes.
