For the thermal-hydraulic design regarding a fuel assembly of sodium-cooled fast reactors, a subchannel analysis code ASFRE has been developed by JAEA. ASFRE was applied to numerical simulations of several kinds of water and sodium experiments as its validation studies and it was confirmed that pressure drops and temperature distributions measured in the experiments can be well reproduced. To enhance safety of sodium-cooled fast reactor, it is required to evaluate thermal-hydraulics in a core during decay heat removal by natural circulation. It is necessary to estimate radial heat transfer phenomena between fuel assemblies. In this study, a numerical simulation of a 37-pin bundle sodium experiment with radial heat flux was carried out and it was confirmed that ASFRE can be qualitatively reproduced temperature distributions in a fuel assembly affected by radial heat transfer.

A specific fuel assembly named FAIDUS (Fuel Assembly with Inner Duct Structure) has been developed as one of the measures to enhance safety of the reactor in the core disruptive accident (CDA) in JAEA. Thermal-hydraulics evaluations in FAIDUS under various operation conditions including the CDA are required to confirm its design feasibility. Therefore, numerical simulations by using thermal-hydraulics analysis program named SPIRAL developed in JAEA are conducted to analyze the thermal-hydraulics in the FAIDUS. Through the numerical simulation in the FAIDUS under tentative rated operation condition of an Advanced SFR, it was indicated that the flow and temperature distribution in the FAIDUS showed the same tendency as that in ordinary FA and specific characteristics was not observed.

In an economically improved sodium-cooled fast reactor, a narrower gap is considered among the fuel pins so as to achieve a high burn-up. Therefore, it is needed to evaluate thermal-hydraulic characteristics in case of a change of the gap geometry due to deformation of fuel pin caused by such as a swelling and a thermal bowing. For this purpose, a FEM analysis code, SPIRAL has been being developed in JAEA and the code validations using water or sodium experimental results have also being performed. In this study, a numerical analysis of a flow field around wire-wrapped fuel pins based on a 3-pin bundle water experiment was carried out as a validation study of SPIRAL. As a result, it was demonstrated that the hybrid-type turbulent model incorporated in SPIRAL has a high applicability to investigate the flow structure of the narrow gap in the fuel assembly.

This is an annual report in 2004 fiscal year that describes activities of the Reactor Fuel Examination Facility (RFEF), the Waste Safety Testing Facility (WASTEF), and the Research Hot Laboratory (RHL) in the Department of Hot laboratories. In RFEF, BWR fuel rods were withdrawn from a fuel assembly irradiated for 5 cycles in the Fukushima-2 Nuclear Power Station Unit-1 and PIEs including nondestructive examination of those rods were carried out. In WASTEF, Slow Strain Rate Tests for detecting the susceptibility to IASCC, the corrosion test of reprocessing plant materials, tests for evaluating barrier performance in terms of waste disposal were performed. A secondary system pipe from the Mihama Nuclear Power Station Unit-3 was accepted to inspect the ageing fracture of it. In RHL, 15 lead cells are dismantled under the decommissioning plan at JAERI Tokai. And an arrangement of the RHL facility was started to use the storage of unirradiated nuclear materials.

In order to evaluate irradiation behavior of(U, Pu) C and (U, Pu) N fuel using fast reactor, (U, Pu) C and (U, Pu) N fuel pins were irradiated in JOYO for the fist time in Japan. In this study, one (U, Pu) C fuel pin and two (U, Pu) N fuel pins were irradiated to maximum burn up about 40GWd/t. Post irradiation examination of (U, Pu) C and (U, Pu) N fuel pins started in Fuel Monitoring Facility (FMF) at JNC from October 1999, and it ended in March, 2000. The results of non-destructive post irradiation examination reported in this document. Main results are shown in the following. (1)The soundness of all (U,Pu) C and (U,Pu) N fuel pins were confirmed from the non-destructive examination result. (2)The fuel stack elongation of (U,Pu) C and (U,Pu) N is bigger than it of the MOX fuel for fast reactor. (3)The singular behavior from the gamma ray scanning measurement in the stack area was not confirmed. The migration of Cs137 to lower insulator pellet and outside of the pellet was confirmed in (U,Pu) N B9NO2 pin. In (U,Pu) C fuel, the migration of Cs137 was not confirmed. (4)In (U,Pu) C B9CO1 pin and (U,Pu) N B9NO2 pin in which the gap width was small, diameter of cladding increase around 50 $$mu$$m in the stack area which originates for FCMI was confirmed. In (U,Pu) N B9NO1 pin in which the gap width was wide, the ovality which originates from the relocation of the pellet was confirmed. (5)Fission gas release rate of (U,Pu) N were 3.3% and 5.2%, and the low value compared to the MOX fuel was shown.

The effects of high fluence irradiation and swelling on the transient burst properties of austenitic steel fuel claddings; PNC316 and 15Cr-20Ni stcel, which were irradiated as the MONJU type fuel assemblies (MFA-1&MFA-2) in the FFTF reactor, were investigated. The temperature-transient-to-burst tests were conducted on a total of eight irradiation conditions. Fractographic examination and TEM observation were performed in order to evaluate the effect of high dose irradiation on the transient burst property and the relation between failure mechanism and microstructural change during rapid (ramp) heating. The results of the PIE showed that there was no significant effect of irradiation on the transient burst properties of these fuel claddings under the irradiation conditions examined. the results obtained in this study are as follows; (1)The rupture temperature of the irradiated PNC316 fuel cladding of MFA-1 was as same as that of our previous works for the fluence range up to 2.13$$times$$10$$^{27}$$ n/m$$^{2}$$. There was no noticeable decrease in rupture temperature with increasing fluence in lower hoop stress region($$sim$$100MPa). (2)The rupture temperature of the irradiated 15Cr-20Ni fuel cladding of MFA-2 was almost as same as that of as-received cladding for the hoop stress range up to about 200MPa. The rupture temperature did not decrease significantly with fluence. (3)The rupture temperature of the irradiated PNC316 cladding tested at hoop stress 69MPa, which was the design hoop stress for MONJU fuel, was 1055.6$$^{circ}$$C. This suggested that the design cladding maximum temperature limit for MONJU (830$$^{circ}$$C) was conservative. (4)There was no obvious relation between rupture temperature, swelling and microstructural change during transient heating under the irradiation conditions examined.

ODS (Oxide Dispersion Strengthened) ferritic-martainsitic steels are one of the most prospective cladding materials for advanced fast breeder reactors, since they are expected to have excellent swelling resistance and superior high temperature strength due to the finely distributed stable oxide particles(Y$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$). Properties and the tentative strength equations for ODS ferritic-martainsitic were proposed on the basis of the latest data to apply to the feasibility study of the sodium coolant MOX fuel plant. The items of equations are follows. (1)creep rupture strength (2)correction factor of creep rupture strength (in Na and in reactor) (3)outer surface eorrosion (Na) (4)inner surface corrosion (in MOX fuel pin) (5)thermal conductivity

JNC has been conducted a great number of irradiation tests to develop MOX fuels for Advanced Thermal Reactor and Light Water Reactors. In order to manage irradiation data consistently and to effectively utilize valuable data obtained from the irradiation tests, we commenced construction of database system on MOX fuel for water reactors in 1998 JFY. Collection and selection of irradiation data and relevant fuel fabrication data, design of the database system and preparation of assisting programs have been finished and data registration onto the system is under way according to priority at present. The database system can be operated through the menu screen on PC. About 94,000 records of data on 11 fuel assemblies in total have been registered onto the database up to the present. By conducting registration of the remaining data and some modification of the system, if necessary, the database system is expected to complete in 2000 JFY. The completed database system is to be distributed to relevant sections in JNC by means of CD-R as a media. This report is an interim report covering 1998 and 1999 JFY, which gives the structure explanation and users manual concerning to the prepared database up to the present.
