For the evaluation of irradiated segregation behavior, Austenite-based stainless steel for the fast reactor, during irradiation was evaluated by utilizing TIARA facility (Irradiate temperature: 600 C, Dose: 100 dpa) was observed by analytical electron microscope (JEM-ARM20FC). As a result of observation, the large-size void is observed in irradiation area, and MX segregation (containing Niobium) is not observed. In un-irradiation area the MX segregation is observed. And it is observed conspicuously that Nickel is segregation on the void surface. By the latest high-performance TEM utilization, these phenomenon are able to visualize. It is expected for the clarification of the irradiation damage and mechanism of void swelling, by the analyzing these phenomenon utilization with the latest high-performance TEM utilization.

In the first phase of the feasibility study, their basic objectives are presentating the feasible image and scenario of development of the FBR cycle system, which is composed of the fast reactor, spent fuel reprocessing and fuel manufacturing facility. In the development of the FBR system in this phase, various ideas of plants are to be studied, which include coolant types such as sodium, heavy metals, gases(CO, He), wator, and middle or small size of the reactor, and fuel types (MOX, metal and nitride). In this report, as a part of this study, materials used for the core of the helium gas cooled reactor and their integrity (corrosion, mechanical and irradiation property) under high temperature helium atmosphere were investigated from open literatures.

The corrosion behavior of ferritic stainless steels applied to core components under C0 gas environment was investigated in order to be helpful to fuel design in C0 gas cooled reactor as the feasibility study for fast breeder reactor. The dependence of the corrosion behavior, before a breakaway occurs, on C0 gas temperature, Si and Cr contents of ferritic steels was determined quantitatively. The following correlations to calculate the metal loss thickness was established. X = 4.4w w = √(kt) k = exp( - 5.45[Si]) exp( - 1.09[Cr]) exp( - 11253/T) = 1.65 104.40 10 X : metal loss thickness[ml, w : corrosion weight gain [mg/cm] k : parabola constant [(mg/cm)/hr], t : time [hr], : constant [Si] : Si content[wt.%], [Cr] : Cr content [wt.%], T : temperature [K]

The corrosion behavior of core materials in lead cooled reactor was investigated as the feasibility study for fast breeder reactor. The results are summarized as follows. (1)The corrosion of stainless steels under lead and lithium occurs mainly due to the dissolution of nickel. Consequently ferritic stainless steels have better resistance to corrosion under lead and lithium than austenitic stainless steels, and the corrosion resistance of high nickel steels is worst. (2)The dissolution rate, D(mg/m/h), is correlated with lead and lithium temperature, T(K), as log Da = 10.7873 - 6459.3/ T and logDf = 7.6185 - 4848.4/T, where D a is the dissolution rate for austenitic steels and D f is for ferritic steels. lt's possible to calculate the corrosion thickness, C(m), using the following correlation: C = (Dt)/10, where t is exposure time(hr) and is density of the core matelial (g/cm). (3)The corrosion thickness estimated for austenitic steels using above correlations was extremely larger than ferritic steels, about 6 times at 400C and more than 20 times at above 600C. lt's considered that applicable temperature in lead cooled reactor core is below 400C (about 60m corrosion thickness after 30000 hr) for austenitic steels, and below 500C (about 80 m after 30000 hr) for ferritic steels.

High Strength Ferritic/Martensitic Steel (PNC-FMS : 0.12C-11Cr-0,5Mo-2W-0.2V-0.05Nb), developed by JNC, is one of the candidate materials for the long-life core of large-scale fast breeder reactor. Ductile brittle transition temperature (DBTT) was tentatively determined in 1992 in material design base standard of PNC-FMS. Howevcr, specimen size effect on impact property and upper shelf energy (USE) have not been evaluated. ln this study, effects of specimen size, thermal aging and neutron irradiation on the charpy impact property of PNC-FMS were evaluated, using together with recently obtained data. The design value of USE and DBTT as fabricated and each correlation of aging and irradiation effects were determined. The results are summarized as follows. (1)lt was found that USE is related to (Bb) as USE=m(Bb), where B is specimen width, b is ligament size and both m and n are constant. For PNC-FMS, n value is equal to 1.4. It's possible to determine n value from USE (J) for full size specimen using the correlation: n=1.3810 USE + 1.20. (2)lt was clarified that DBTT is correlated with (BKt) as DBTT=p(logBKt)+q, where Kt is elastic stress concentration factor and both p and q are constant. For PNC-FMS, the correlation is as follows: DBTT=119(logBKt)-160. (3)DBTT estimated at the irradiation temperature from 350 to 650 C for sub size specimen (width and height are 3 and 10 mm, respectively), was below 180 C, based on the design value of DBTT as fabricated and each correlation of aging and irradiation effects.

lt is necessary for feasibility study of fast reactor to evaluate the oxidation of the austenitic stainless steels in the case of using for core material in carbon dioxide gas-cooled reactor. The properties for oxidation of austenitic stainless steels in carbon dioxide were surveyed in literatures and the data were selected after evaluation of factors for oxidation in carbon dioxide. The equation of oxidation in carbon dioxide for PE16, 20Cr/25Ni/Nb, 18Cr-8Ni and JNC Cladding materials were proposed. The equation for oxidation of austenitic stainless steels were expressed as upper limit for the equation according to parabolic law. The equation for JNC cladding materials (PNC316, PNC1520, 14Cr-25Ni) was proposed based the oxidation behavior of 18Cr-8Ni which is same oxidation region for weight gain in three-component system of Fe-Cr-Ni, in addition to evaluate of effect for silicon content. The oxidation equation of 20Cr/25Ni/Nb was applied to the high Ni alloy of JNC cladding material. The obtained equation is as follows, X = 4.4W1000, W = , kp = exp(-Q/(RT)), X: oxide thickness[m], W : weight gain[gcm], kp : parabolic rate constant[gcm s], t :time[sec] : constant[gcmS], Q : activation energy[J・mol], R : gas constant[8.314J K mol], T : temperature[K] (1) PE16 : kp = 1.09010 exp(-192,500/(RD)), (2) 20Cr/25Ni/Nb : kp = 1.65110 exp(-201,300/(RT)) High Ni alloy (JNC), (3)18Cr-8Ni : kp = 1.50310 exp(-60,000/(RT)), (4) PNC316, PNC1520 : kp = 1.50310 exp(-60,000/(RT))0.62 14Cr-25Ni(JNC) The weight gain is (3)(4)(2)(1) in order.

JAEA conducts R&D to support the decommissioning at the Fukushima Daiichi NPS and to contribute improvement of the LWR safety in the frame of domestic and international collaborations as well as the own projects. The R&D mostly focuses on the phenomena in BWRs and covers various issues related to materials degradation in severe accidents. In parallel, JAEA has the research activity to establish technical basis for practical use of accident tolerant fuel (ATF) components in existing LWRs. The preliminary computer code analyses showed necessary material data and subjects to design the ATF components.
