Reference Biospheres are regarded as tools which can be used for making reasonable estimates of radiological impacts for the purposes of safety assessment of geological disposal. Moreover, those are available for reducing the uncertainties based on future human environments and lifestyles. On the other hand, it is recognised that the parameter values have some uncertainties derived from experimental or sampling errors. It is possible to estimate the impacts of these uncertainties throughout the model by sensitivity analysis. Thus for this study, to evaluate the impact of the variation of migration conditions and exposure pathways, we changed some of migration and exposure parameters in turn, which were used in the compartment model where the geosphere-biosphere interface is a river in a plain.

Environmental radiation monitoring around the Tokai Reprocessing Plant has been performed since 1975, based on "Safety Regulations for the Tokai Reprocessing Plant, Chapter IV - Environmental Monitoring". This annual report presents the results of the environmental monitoring and the dose estimation to the hypothetical inhabitants due to the radioactivity discharged from the plant during April 1999 to March 2000. Appendices present comprehensive information, such as monitoring program, monitoring results, meteorological data and annual discharges from the plant.

Optimal vertical isolation characteristics were studied for the structural concept of vertical seismic isolation system, which uses a common deck and a set of large coned dish springs. Four kinds of earthquake wave and three kinds of artificial seismic wave were used. The earthquake response analysis of a base isolated building was carried out considering some ground conditions and some vertical vibration characteristics of the building isolator. Floor response and acceleration time history at the vertical isolation level were arranged. Using the acceleration time history as a seismic input, the earthquake response analysis of the vertical isolation system according to single degree of freedom model was carried out. Linear analysis and non-linear analysis were made. ln the linear analysis, vertical isolation frequency was examined within 0.8 to 2.5 Hz, and damping ratio was examined within 2 to 60%. ln the non-linear analysis, it was examined within vertical isolation frequency 0.5 to 5Hz, which depended only on the rigidity of the coned disk spring, rigidity ratio of the damping devise 1 to 20 and yield seismic intensity of the damping devise 0.01 to 0.2. As the optimal vertical isolation characteristics of the system, the criterion of largest relative displacement, maximum acceleration and maximum value of the floor response acceleration between 5 to 12Hz was set, the combination region of the appropriate parameter were examined. ln case of largest relative displacement 50mm, acceleration response magnification of 0.75, floor response magnification of 0.33 were used as a criterion, from the result of the linear analysis, vertical frequency was set at 0.8 to l.2 Hz, and by combining the damping ratio over 20 %, it was proven that appropriate vertical isolation characteristics were obtained. The result of the non-linear analysis showed that the combination of the coned disk spring of vertical frequency 0.8 to 1.0 Hz and the damping element of rigidity ...

To evaluate materials balance in nuclear fuel cycle quickly and quantitatively the fuel cycle requirement code "FAMILY" was improved. And an accumulated TRU&LLFP quantity analysis code was developed. The contents are as follows: (1)A calculation ability of minor actinide production and expenditure was added to the "FAMILY" code. (2)An output program for the "FAMILY" calculation results was developed. (3)A simple version of "FAMILY" code was developed. (4)An analysis code for accumulated TRU&LLFP quantity in nuclear fuel cycle was developed.

In this study, we have proposed the concept of safety systems (solutions of safety problems) in pyrochemical reprocessing systems (lt consists of pyrochemical reprocessing methods and the injection casting process for the metal fuel fabrication, or vibro-packing process for the oxide fuel fabrication.) which has different concept from the existing PUREX reprocessing method and pellet fuel fabrication process. And we performed its safety evaluations. FoIlowing the present Japanese safety regulations for reprocessing facilities, we pointed out functions, design requirements and equipments relating to its safety systems and picked up subjects. For the survey of safety evaluations, we first selected anticipated events and accident events, and second by evaluated 6the correspondence of the limitation of the public exposure to the accidents above, by using two parameters, the safety design parameter (the filter performance to confine radioactive matelials) and the leak inventory of radioactivities, and last by picked up its problems. ln addition to the above evaluations we performed basic criticality analyses for its systems to utilize these results for the design and evaluation of the criticality safety management system. Thus this study specified the concept of safety systems for pyrochemical reprocessing processes and then issues in order to establish safety design policies (matters which must consider for the safety design) and guides and to advance more definite safety design.

Criticality limits for equipments in Tokai Reprocessing Plant which handle fissile material solution and are under shape and dimension control were reevaluated based on the guideline No.10 "Criticality safety of single unit" in the regulatory guide for reprocessing plant safety. This report presents criticality safety evaluation of each equipment as single unit. Criticality safety of multiple units in a cell or a room was also evaluated. The evaluated equipments were ones in dissolution, separation, purification, denitration, Pu product storage, and Pu conversion processes. As a result, it was reconfirmed that the equipments were safe enough from a view point of criticality safety of single unit and multiple units.

With use of the two-dimensional discrete ordinates code DORT and the standard groupwise shielding design library JSSTDL produced from the latest evaluated nuclear data library JENDL-3.2, experimental analyses for the representative configurations in the Radial Shield Attenuation Experiment of the JASPER were performed. The results were compared with those obtained with use of traditional method DOT3.5/JSDJ2 for the previous JASPER experimetal analyses. In general, the change of the cross section library gives higher results and the change of the transport code gives lower results. Finally the new analysis method gives better agreement with the experimental results and also less deviations of calculational errors between various detectors. Experimental analyses for the thick concrete configulation in the Gap Streaming Experiment of the JASPER was also performed with the new analysis method, after solving the poor agreement found in last year with the original JASPER experimental analyses. The same tendency due to the library change was confirmed with the above mentioned analyses of the Radial Shield Attenuation Experiment. Compilation of the input data necessary for future reanalyses of important configurations in JASPER experiments were continued through the above-mentioned experimental analyses and related informations were added for repletion of the database preserved in a computer disk holding previously accumulated data. Input data descriptions were made for auxiliary routines needed for the experimental analyses and their sample data were compiled and stored in the database.

In the probabilistic safety assessment(PSA), the fault tree/event tree technique has been widely used to evaluate accident sequence frequencies. However, event tansition which operators actually face can not be dynamically treated by the conventional technique. Therefore, we have made the dynamic analysis program(DYANA) for event transition for a liquid metal cooled fast breeder reactor. In the previous development, we made basic model for analysis. However, we have a probrem that calculation time is too long. At the current term, we made parallelization of DYANA usig MPI. So we got good performance on WS claster. It performance is close to ideal one.

In order to support development of the dynamic reliability analysis program DYANA, analyses were made on the event sequences anticipated under emergency situations using the plant dynamics simulation computer code Super-COPD. In this work 9 sequences were analyzed and integrated into an input file for preparing the functions for DYANA using the analytical model and input data which developed for Super-COPD in the previous work. These sequences could not analyze in the previous work, which were categorized into the PLOHS (Protected Loss of Heat Sink) event.
