Japan Nuclear Energy Agency (JAEA) has been conducting the groundwater recovery experiment to develop a methodology to estimate the geological environment recovery after closure of the drift at GL-500m in Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory, Japan. For the experiment, an impervious concrete plug was constructed to maintain a recovered water pressure and its functions were assessed based on the monitoring results and interpretation of several kinds of measurements performed inside and outside of the plug during groundwater recovery test. This report summarized the change of the condition of the plug due to groundwater recovery estimated based on the different kinds of monitoring data.

Spatial resolution effect of LDV (Laser Doppler Velocimetry) on the time-averaged statistics is presented in high Reynolds number turbulent pipe flow. Employing PDF (Probability Density Function) of streamwise velocity, we report the study of overestimation of time-averaged statistics based on the size of measurement volume. We proposed a simple equation to estimate their spatial resolution effect. Using the proposed equation, the measurement position and the measurement volume calculated precisely based on experimental setup, it was found that the correction for spatial resolution effect is possible. Analyzing the pipe flow data measured by LDV, we estimated the expected turbulence intensity profile. The validity of the present correction method was confirmed by comparing the correction result based on the low-resolution experimental result with the high-resolution experimental result.

Excitation functions of quasielastic scattering cross sections for the Ca + Pb, Ti + Pb, and Ca + Cm reactions were successfully measured by using the gas-filled recoil-ion separator GARIS. Fusion barrier distributions were extracted from these data, and compared with the coupled-channels calculations. It was found that the peak energies of the barrier distributions for the Ca + Pb and Ti + Pb systems coincide with those of the 2n evaporation channel cross sections for the systems, while that of the Ca + Cm is located slightly below the 4n evaporation ones. This results provide us helpful information to predict the optimum beam energy to synthesize superheavy nuclei.

Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has been conducting the groundwater recovery experiment to develop the methodology to estimate the recovery of geological environment after drift closure at GL-500m in Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory, Gifu prefecture, Japan. For the experiment, the impervious concrete plug was constructed to keep a recovered water pressure. The authors assessed the functions of the pluge based on monitoring and interpretation of the several kinds of measurements inside and outside of the plug during groundwater recovery process in a drift. As the results, the design concept and the expected function of the impervious plug assessed almost satisfied and it is supposed no problem will occur on the groundwater recovery experiment for several months.

Japan Atomic Agency (JAEA) are performing Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory project (MIU project), which is a broad scientific study of the deep geological environment as a basis of research and development for geological disposal of nuclear wastes. Geological investigations, reflection seismic surveys, borehole drilling, etc., are carried out to understand the distribution and properties of important geological structures (permeable fractures, faults, etc). This report summarizes specifications and data characteristic of geological mapping on the shafts and gallery wall, and describes contributions to developments of geological model based on the results of geological mapping.

We study thermal stability of a magnetic domain wall pinned in nanowires made of Co/Ni multilayers, and analyze the effective volume that governs the thermal stability. We find that, above a critical wire width, the domain wall depinning is initiated by a subvolume excitation and that the critical width is dependent on the wire thickness. The obtained findings are supported by the distribution of critical current density for domain wall depinning and are qualitatively described by considering the balance between the Zeeman energy and domain wall elastic energy.

The researches on engineering technology in the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) project consists of (1) development of design and construction planning technologies, (2) development of construction technology, (3) development of countermeasure technology, (4) development of technology for security, and (5) development of technologies for restoration and/or reduction of the excavation damage. The researches on engineering technology such as verification of the initial design were being conducted by using data measured during construction as a part of the second phase of the MIU plan. Examination about the plug for reflood test in the GL-500m Access/Research Gallery-North as part of the development of technologies for restoration and/or reduction of excavation damage were carried out. Specifically, Literature survey was carried out about the plug, based on the result of literature survey, examination of the design condition, design of the plug and rock stability using numerical simulation, selection of materials for major parts, and grouting for water inflow from between rock and plug, were carried out in this study.

Fission barrier heights of a shell-stabilized superheavy nucleus No have been determined as a function of spin up to 19 through the measured distribution of entry points of deexcitations in the excitation energy vs. spin plane. The fission barrier height of No was determined to be 6.0 MeV at spin 15, and 6.6 MeV at spin 0 by extrapolation. This demonstrates that the shell effect actually enlarges the fission barrier in such heavy nuclei and keeps the barrier high even at high spin.

Fission barrier heights of No have been determined through the entry distribution method. The entry distribution is the initial distribution of excitation energy and spin from which the deexcitation starts in the fusion-evaporation reaction. The initial distribution is extracted from measured -ray multiplicity and total -ray energy. This paper describes the details of the entry distribution method, and reports the first determination of the fission barrier heights of No, which is the heaviest nucleus whose fission barrier has been measured.
