"The third technological meeting of Tokai Reprocessing plant (TRP)" was held in JNFL Rokkasyo site on March 14, 2001. The technical meetings have been held in the past two times. The first one was about the present status and future plan of the TRP and second one was about safety evaluation work on the TRP. At this time, the meeting focussed on the corrosion experrience, in-service inspection technology and future maintenance plan. The report contains the proceedings, transparancies and questionnaires of the meeting are contained.

Concerming about the action for the criticality accident in JCO Co., Ltd. (JCO) occurred at 10:35 on 30 Sept. 1999, Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute(JNC) established "JNC's task force" at 12:35 on the same date in conjuction with Head Office and Tokai Works. And JNC's task force had supported the government of Japan, the local governments and JCO humanly, physically and technically until the jobs of the task force was transferred to "Support Assembly for Countermeasure and Research of JCO Criticality Accident" and routine line on 12 Oct. 1999. This report compiled the results of the environmental monitoring performed by JNC based on the request from the government of Japan and the local governments.

The integral experiments performed at the Rossendorf fast-thermal coupled reactor RRR/SEG have been reanalyzed using the JNC route for reactor calculation JENDL3.2/SLAROM / CITATION / JOINT / PERKY. The Rossendorf experiments comprise sample reactivity measurements with pure fission products and structural material in five configurations with different neutron and adjoint spectra. The shapes of the adjoint spectra have been designed to get high sensitivities to neutron capture or the scattering effect. The calculated neutron and adjoint spectra are in good agreement with former results obtained with the European route JEF2.2/ECCO/ERANOS. The C/E-values of the central reactivity worths of samples under investigation are given. Deviations in the results of both routes are due to the different libraries, codes, and self-shielding treatments used in the calculations. Results outside of the error are discussed.

It is an important part of the near field performance assessment of nuclear waste disposal to evaluate coupled 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 named "Engineered Barrier Experiment" was conducted at the Kamaishi Mine, in which the 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. This report summarizes the results of the in-situ direct compaction technique to evaluate the appropriate conditions for this technique. The in-situ direct compaction technique is one of the major candidate emplacement techniques for the buffer material. This experiment consisted of the mock-up tests and the in-situ test. The mock-up tests showed the appropriate conditions for the in-situ direct compaction technique. For the in-situ experiment, the manufactured OT-9607 achieved dry density averaged 1.65 g/cm, which matched the demand for the thermo-hydro-mechanical experiment.

Sorption and diffusion behavior of palladium, which has been identified as one of the hazardous radionuclides in performance assessment of HLW disposal, in bentonite, granodiorite and tuff was studied in order to make reliable data set for the performance assessment. Sorption experiments of Pd on bentonite, granodiorite and tuff were conducted as functions of pH, ionic strength and liquid to solid ratio by batch method under aerobic conditions at room temperature. The distribution coefficients (K) of Pd on these solids were almost in the range of 10 to 10 m/kg and were in the order of bentonite granodiorite tuff. The sorption trends with change in PH, ionic strength and liquid to solid ratio are very similar between three solids. The K values were the highest at pH5 and decreased with increasing pH between 5 and 11. The effect of ionic strength on K was not found in a range of 10 to 10, but K values increased with increasing liquid to solid ratio. The width of variation in K was one order of magnitude in a liquid to solid ratio of 0.1 to 1 m/kg. Sorption behavior of Pd is different from that of divalent metal ions such as Ni and Co etc. and chemical analogy may be inappropriate. The dominant aqueous species of Pd in the expermental conditions studied is estimated to be neutral species, Pd(OH)(aq) by the thermodynamic calculations. The K values of Pd on three solids were relatively high and uncharged complexes may be more strongly sorbed. The pH dependency of K values suggests that Pd sorption is most likely to be occurring onto positively charged S-OH type site which are progressively removed (to from SOH and SO sites) at higher pH values. Diffusion behavior of Pd in bentonite was also studied by in-diffusion method as a function of dry density. The D values obtained based on the instantaneous planar source model were in the orders of ...

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.
