We had been conducted to study hydraulic permeability along fracture intersection by NETBLOCK system using natural rock specimen. Since the permeability of this rock specimen fracture is high, it was suggest that turbulent flow might be occurred in available range of measurement system. In case of turbulent flow, estimated permeability and fracture aperture from test data tend to be low. Therefore we should achieve laminar flow. This study was used the high viscosity liquid instead of water, and test conditions which could attain laminar flow with the rock specimen was examined. The rock specimen is granite rock, has natural Y-type fractures intersection. A solution of Methyl-cellulose is used as high viscosity liquid. Due to the high viscosity liquid, hydraulic head could be measured in the wide range, and high viscosity liquid improved the accuracy of measurement. Laminar flow could be achieved in the rock specimen by the high viscosity liquid over 0.1wt%.

It was required from IAEA to determine a small amount of plutonium in the high active liquid waste solutions (HALW) in the tokai reprocessing plant. High performance spectrophotometer (HPSP), which could be obtained lower detection limit than conventional spectrophotometer, is studied to be applied to the inspection and verification analysis by the IAEA. [Cold Test] Neodymium, showing an absorption peak near the absorption wavelength of plutonium (VI), was used as an alternative element to plutonium, in order to review the calculation method of the peak intensity. As a result, the three-point correction method was found to be simple and effective. [Hot Test] Plutonium nitrate solution was used the fundamental test of this method. Since the method is known to be influenced by acidity, suspended sludge and coexistent elements in a sample, each dependency was examined. It was found that measurement results varied about 14% at a nitric acid concentration of 2-4 mol/L. Sludge should be removed by filtration before the measurement. The effect of coexisting elements could be eliminated adjusting the optical balance between reference and sample beam intensity. In the case of measuring a low concentration plutonium solution sample, a ratio of the peak intensity to the background intensity (S/B ratio) is relatively small. Therefore a method should be improved the S/B ratio by analyzing the obtained spectra. Accumulated average method, moving average method and Fourier transform method was tested. The results showed that a combination of the accumulated average method and the moving average method was the optimum method for the purpose. Linearity of the calibration curve was found between 0-11 mgPu/L. Synthetic sample solution, which simulated the actual constituents of the HALW with plutonium showed a good linear relation at 0-11 mgPu/L. The detection limit for plutonium concentration was 0.07 mgPu/L. When the synthetic HALW solution containing plutonium was measured, the de

ln experimental study for the thermohydraulics of fast reactor, a simple experiment with fine measurement has been desired for understanding of phenomena and for verification of computer code rather than mockup experiments of large scale. For such purposes quality of experimental data must be improved. ln the velocity measurement, instantaneous velocity profile will have great advances for the understanding of phenomena and for the verification of computer code. ln this report two methods of the velocity profile measurement are discussed; one is ultrasound Doppler velocimetry (UDV) and the other is particle image velocimetry (PIV). These methods were applied to water experiments. The UDV was applied to pipe flow, planer jet, and the inter-wrapper flow which is seen in the gap region between subassemblies of fast reactor core. Cross check with laser Doppler velocimetly showed proper measurement of the UDV. Problems including the application to sodium experiments are also discussed. The PIV was also applied to the inter-wrapper flow. For the application to complex flow geometry, noise reduction method was developed to improve the measurement accuracy.

Measurement of U and Pu concentrations by wavelength dispersion type X-ray fluorescence spectrometry was studied. Sample holder was installed inside of glove box and other instruments, X-ray tube, monochromator and detectors were set out side of the glove box. X-rays was irradiated to sample though Be window. Fluorescent X-rays form sample were also passing though the same Be window and detected outside. Analytical conditions were optimized as follows. Sample thickness is 8 mm, which is 3ml of sample volume by the sample holder. Voltage and eurrent for X-ray tube is 50kV and 40 mA, respectively. Measurement was done twice, 60 seconds each, and averaged X-ray intensity was used to calculate elemental concentrations. Matrix correction was necessary to measure U and Pu concentration within 10% accuracy. Detection limits were calculated to 0.4 mg/L for U and 0.7mg/L for Pu. Calibration curve was liner up to 9 g/L fbr U and Pu. Two calculation methods, calibration curve method and standard addition method, were studied to measure Pu concentration in organic solution. Detection limit was 5.3 mg/L and 0.2 mg/L, respectively.

Groundwater data used for modelling site or repository evolution need to be assessed for their quality and whether they are "fit for purpose", prior to utilization. This report discuss factors and issues which impinge upon the quality of such data. It is recommended that geochemical modelleres : (1)are aware of how groundwater samples were collected, whether during drilling, during hydraulic testing, or thereafter, by in-situ measurement, pumped from boreholes, or by pressurised sampler ; (2)are aware of what procedures (if any) were used to "correct" samples for drill fluid contamination and what errors were associated with those methods ; (3)are aware of whether samples were subject to de-pressurisation during sampling, and whether geochemical modelling techniques were applied to correct the compositions of samples for that process ; (4)request different measures of redox activity (e.g., electrode measurements of Eh, concentrations of different redox-sensitive aqueous species) to be applied to key groundwater samples to investigate the extent of redox equilibrium ; (5)are aware of how groundwater samples were filtered and preserved for off-site analysis ; (6)ensure that adequate methods of groundwater filtration ($$<$$ 0.1$$mu$$m) and chemical analysis are applied to ensure accurate and reproducible analyses for dissolved aluminum at low levels of concentration (generally less than 0.2 mg/L) ; (7)are aware of elemental errors and detection limits in chemical analysis of groundwater samples and assess the quality of groundwater analyses via ion exchange balances and via a comparison of measured and calculated values for total dissolved solids contents. (8)ensure that detailed mineralogical analysis is carried out on rock samples from locations where key groundwater samples have been extracted.

The tritium transport analysis code, TTT, has been validated using data from the low power test of Monju, and then its behaviour at along term full power operation of Monju in future has been estimated, when the estimated transport and distribution of tritium in the reactor system has been also compared with the result in Joyo and Phenix, which had been already experienced long term operations. The TTT code had been develpped using the tiritium and hydrogen transport model proposed by R. Kumar, ANL, and had been applied to the evaluation in Monju design work. After then, futhermore, the code has been improved using the data from long term operation of Joyo with MK-II core, and in this work the code has been validated for the first time for Monju data. The results from this work are as follows; (1)Comparison of the best fitted tritium source rates from cores in Joyo, Phenix and Monju makes an estimation of the major source from control rods, (2)The calculated tritium concentration in each medium for cooling and its change is a reasonable agreement to the measured, C/E=1.1, (3)The cover gas transport model cosidering isotopic exchange of H and H$$^{3}$$ can reproduce reasonably the measured concentration distirbution of tritium in sodium and cover gas, (4)The tritium concentration in secondary sodium of Monju was about l/50 times as much as the primary one, which shows the acceraration effect on cold tarapping of tritium due to coprecipitation with permeated hydrogen through Evaporater (EV) heat conduction tube walls. The tritium cold trapping efficiency was estimated to be 1 for coprecipitation with hydrogen and 0.3 for isotopic exchange, respectively, (5)Tritium transport and distribution for along term full power operation of Monju in future was estimated, which could involve a excess factor to 4 at the maximum. The tritium concentration in sodium and Steam Generator (SG) water will be substantially saturated after somthing like 10 years full power operation, ...
