The criticality management of the fuel debris is one of the most important research issues in Japan. The current criticality management adopts the fresh fuel assumption. The adoption of the fresh fuel assumption for the criticality control of the fuel debris is difficult because the k$$_{rm eff}$$ of the fuel debris could exceed 1.0 in most of cases which the fuel debris contains water and does not contain neutron absorbers such as gadolinium. Therefore, the adoption of the burnup credit is considered. The prediction accuracy of the isotopic composition of used nuclear fuel must be required to adopt the burnup credit for the treatment of the fuel debris. JAEA developed a burnup calculation code SWAT4.0 to obtain reference calculation results of the isotopic composition of the used nuclear fuel. This code is used to evaluate the composition of fuel debris. In order to investigate the prediction accuracy of SWAT4.0, we analyzed the PIE of BWR obtained from 2F2DN23.

The Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR) has been contributing to various R&D activities in the nuclear research such as the fundamental research of nuclear materials/ fuels, safety research and development of power reactors, radio isotope (RI) production since its beginning of the operation in 1968. Irradiation technologies and post irradiation examination (PIE) technologies are the important factors for irradiation test research. Now, decontamination and new research reactor construction are common issue in the world according to aging. This report outlines any irradiation and PIE technologies developed at JMTR in 40years and for technology succession and development of human resources.

It is necessary for reasonable disposal to be studied on evaluation methods to determine radioactivity concentrations in the radioactive wastes, which is generated from post-irradiation examination (PIE) facilities, for establishment of reasonable confirmation methods concerning radioactive wastes generated from research, industrial, and medical facilities. It has been chosen the PIE facilities of NUCLEAR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION as a model for this study. As a result, it has been confirmed that the theoretical methods are applied for the important nuclides (H-3, C-14, Co-60, Ni-63, Sr-90, Tc-99, Cs-137, Eu-154, U-234, U-235, U-238, Pu-238, Pu-239, Pu-240, Pu-241, Am-241 and Cm-244).

In order to dispose of the radioactive waste which generates from post-irradiation examination (PIE) facilities, the common evaluation method of radioactivity in wastes from PIE should be established by the actual data such as radioactivity values and the theoretical calculation. In this study, the radioactivity concentrations of 17 nuclides (H-3, C-14, Co-60, Ni-63, Sr-90, Tc-99, Cs-137, Eu-154, U-234, U-235, U-238, Pu-238, Pu-239, Pu-240, Pu-241, Am-241, Cm-244) in combustible wastes stored in NUCLEAR DEVEROPMENT CORPORATION were measured from 3 samples and the radioactivity was calculated by ORIGEN-2 based on initial contents and operation record of the spent fuel. From the comparison of the obtained data by the radiological measurement with the calculated values, the subject to be solved for establishment of the radioactivity evaluation method for PIE was extracted.

The Field Emission type Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM), which is one of effective tools for observation of micr-structures, was installed at the Reactor Fuel Examination Facility (RFEF) in JAERI. The FE-SEM is equipped in a large shield vessel with remote handling systems to keep safety of operators and is modified to enable to manipulate high radioactive materials. The Energy Dispersive Spectrometer (EDS) with radiation-shielded collimators has been also equipped on the FE-SEM to determine element compositions of the observed material samples. Characterization tests were carried out using deposited gold film and Zircaloy cladding tubes with hydrides to confirm the machine performance after the modifications. In the results of the tests, high-resolution images without some noises and fogs were obtained with high magnification above 10,000. Those results show that the FE-SEM keeps the high performance after some improvements and modifications for shielding $$gamma$$-rays and handling radioactive samples.

A beam window of a spallation target will be subjected to proton/neutron irradiation, pressure wave and thermal stresses accompanied by high-energy proton beam injection. To obtain the irradiation data, the SINQ target irradiation program (STIP) was initiated in 1996 at Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and has been progressing. JAERI takes part in STIP and shares the PIE work. In this study, the results of tensile tests on austenitic stainless steels, JPCA and 316F SS, will be reported. The results indicate that the irradiation causes considerable hardening and degradation of ductility. The YS increases in this study are slightly large in comparison with those irradiated at fission reactor. Strain-to-necking (STN) values show sufficient large ductility of the irradiated JPCA-SA and 316F-SA. The trends of the STN decrease in this study are slightly abrupt in comparison with those irradiated at fission reactor. All specimens, including irradiated at embrittlement temperature for austenitic steels, fractured in ductile manner.

The innovative basic research concerns the association of basic and technology with high temperature irradiation environments. The direction of research involves novel and bold challenges both in nuclear and non-nuclear fields. The innovative basic research on high-temperature engineering is one of the key subjects using the HTTR as well as other research reactors. The aim of this paper is to describe the preliminary irradiated test conditions such as irradiated fluence, irradiated temperature and installed specimen on the capsules, and also to show the specifications and performances of the apparatus for Post/Ante Irradoation Experiment.

In several institutes, research and development for an accelerator-driven spallation neutron source have been progressed. A beam window of a target will be subjected to proton/neutron irradiation, pressure wave and thermal stresses accompanied by high-energy proton beam injection. To obtain the irradiation data, the SINQ target irradiation program (STIP) at Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) has been progressing. JAERI takes part in STIP and shares the PIE work. The STIP specimens are very small so that we developed a new fatigue-testing machine with ceramic piezoelectric actuator. The results showed that the numbers of cycles to failure (Nf) on the irradiated specimens were less than that of unirradiated specimens. Dpa dependence of Nf was not clearly seen in the irradiation conditions. On the other hand, fracture surface varied with irradiation conditions. Specimens irradiated at low temperature fractured in ductile manner. However, interglanular fractured surface was observed for 316F SS irradiated up to 12.5 dpa at 360$$^{circ}$$C.

As part of survey concerning radioactive inventory of radwastes arising from research institutes, an analytical scheme has been studied for verifying their nuclide composition based on calculation analysis and record, in consideration of the its characteristics. In this study, radwastes are used as samples, which arise from research and testing reactors and post-irradiation examination facilities (PIE facilities). Though separation procedures are simplified and rationalized, quantifiable values could be obtained with relative errors under 10% for almost all the samples containing nuclides like $$^{59}$$Ni and $$^{238}$$U which concentrations are low, and recoveries were high on the whole. These show that the analytical scheme is useful for chemical separation of radwastes arising from research and testing reactors and PIE facilities.

Information about the fuel behavior under high burn-up operation is needed to assess the safety of the high burn-up fuels. Microstructures in irradiated fuel pellets and Zircaloy tubes influence on their integrity. The fundamental information about microstructures is necessary to estimate the formation mechanism and change in the properties of the fuels.The Field Emission type Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM) has been hence installed at the Reactor Fuel Examination Facility (RFEF). FE-SEM is designed for the remote handling type to use high radioactive materials and has equipments to keep safety for operators. Charctarization tests were carried out using Zircaloy cladding tubes with oxide films and hydrides to confirm machine performance. In the results of the tests, high-resolution images with a magnification of 30,000 were obtained. Those results show that the apparatus is maintained high performance as well as standard type.
