A Preliminary uncertainty analysis of PWR depletion numerical test problem on OECD/NEA/NSC LWR-UAM benchmark phase II based on JENDL-5

Proceedings of Best Estimate Plus Uncertainty International Conference (BEPU 2024) (Internet), 14 Pages, 2024/05

OECD/NEA/NSC LWR-UAMベンチマークフェーズIIにおけるPWR燃料集合体体系の燃焼計算問題の不確かさ解析について、JENDL-5に基づき予備検討を実施した。集合体無限増倍率及び核種インベントリの不確かさを定量化するため、ランダムサンプリング法を用いて核反応断面積(XS)、核分裂生成物収率(FPY)、崩壊定数及び崩壊分岐比をランダムに摂動させ、SERPENT 2.2.1の計算を複数回実施した。ACEファイル中のXSについては、NJOY2016.72で生成した56群共分散行列を用いて、FRENDY 2.02のACEファイル摂動ツールにより摂動させた。独立FPYの摂動量は、JENDL-5で整備されているFPY共分散行列を用いて評価し、摂動後の累積FPYは独立FPYと累積FPYの関係から再構築した。崩壊定数は核種ごとに独立に摂動させた。崩壊枝比の摂動については、事前に一般化最小二乗法を適用して共分散行列を生成し、これに基づいて独立FPYと同じ手順でランダムに摂動した。概して、崩壊データによる影響はXSやFPYの不確かさによる影響よりも一桁小さかった。集合体無限増倍率と超ウラン核種のインベントリの不確かさについては、XSの不確かさによる影響が支配的であり、FPYと崩壊データの不確かさによる影響は1桁から数桁小さかった。一方、核分裂生成物(FP)核種のインベントリの不確かさについては、FPYの不確かさによる影響はXSの不確かさによる影響とほぼ同じか、それよりも大きかった。また、XSとFPYのいずれの不確かさによる影響が支配的かどうかはFP核種によって異なることが確認された。FP核種のXSの不確かさによる影響については、JENDL-5では整備されていないことから本論文では考慮されていないため、今後の研究で議論される予定である。

Pressurized Thermal Shock (PTS) is induced potentially by the rapid cooling of the cold-leg and downcomer wall in the primary system of a Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) due to the initiation of Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS). Thus, fluids mixing in a horizontal cold-leg and downcomer should be predicted accurately; however, turbulence production and damping often hinders this prediction due to the presence of the density gradients. Hence, the Fifth International Benchmark Exercise, the cold-leg mixing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Benchmark, was conducted under the support of OECD/NEA. The experiment was designed for visualization of the mixing phenomena of two liquids with different densities. The heavy liquid was a simulant of cold water from ECCS, in a horizontal leg and downcomer. We used the Large-eddy Simulation (LES) to investigate the time fluctuation behaviors of velocity and liquid concentration. The CFD simulation was performed with two turbulence models and three different numerical meshes. We investigated the characteristics of the appearance frequency of the heavy liquid concentration with the statistical method. Based on our findings, we propose further experiments and numerical investigations to understand the fluid mixing phenomena related to PTS.

The NEA Expert Group on Reactor Fuel Performance (EGRFP) proposed a benchmark on fuel performance codes modeling of pellet-cladding mechanical interation (PCMI). The aim of the benchmark was to improve understanding and modeling of PCMI amongst NEA member organizations. This was achieved by comparing PCMI predictions for a number of specified cases. The results of the two hypothetical cases (1 and 2) were presented earlier. The two final cases (3 and 4) are comparison between calculations and measurements, which will be published as NEA reports. This paper focuses on Case 3, which consists of eight beginning of life (BOL) sub-cases (3a to 3h) each with different pellet designs that have undergone ramping in the Halden Reactor. The aforementioned experiments are known as the IFA-118 experiments and were performed from 1969 to 1970. The variations between cases include four different pellets dimensions (7, 14, 20 and 30 mm of height), two different gapsizes between pellet-cladding (40 and 100 microns) and three variations on pellet face geometry (flat, dishing and dishing with chamfer). Such diversity has allowed exploring the codes sensitivity to these individual factors.

Japan Atomic Energy Agency has developed a new nuclear data processing code, namely FRENDY, to generate the ACE files from various nuclear libraries. A code-to-experiment verification of FRENDY processing was carried out in this study with criticality benchmark assessments of the high temperature engineering test reactor. The ACE files of the JENDL-4.0 and ENDF-B-VII.1 was generated successfully by FRENDY. These ACE files have been used in MCNP6 transportation calculation for various benchmark problems of the high temperature engineering test reactor. As a result, the k$$_{rm eff}$$ and reaction rate obtained by MCNP6 calculation presented a good agreement compared to the experimental data. The proper ACE files generation by FRENDY was confirmed for the HTTR criticality calculations.

The accelerator-driven system (ADS) had been proposed for producing energy and transmuting minor actinide and long-lived fission products. ADS has attracted worldwide attention in recent years because of its superior safety characteristics and potential for burning plutonium and nuclear waste. At the Institute for Integrated Radiation and Nuclear Science, Kyoto University, a series of ADS experiments with 14 MeV neutrons was launched in fiscal year 2003 at the Kyoto University Critical Assembly (KUCA). Also, the high-energy neutrons generated by the interaction of 100 MeV protons with tungsten target was injected into the KUCA core on March 2009. The ADS experiments with 100 MeV protons obtained from the FFAG accelerator have been carried out to investigate the neutron characteristics of ADS. This special issue aims at concentrating on experimental analyses for the ADS benchmarks at KUCA on the basis of most recent advances in the development of computational methods, and contributing to academic progress for ADS research field in the future.

Progress in Nuclear Science and Technology (Internet), 6, p.225 - 229, 2019/01

Intra-Nuclear Cascade (INC) models employed into general-purpose Monte-Carlo (MC) simulation codes such as PHITS are not always applicable in the energy region from typical upper limit of evaluated cross-section data (20 MeV) to several hundreds of MeV. In order to improve accuracy of the MC simulations including this energy region, JENDL-4.0 High Energy File (JENDL-4.0/HE), was released in 2015. It includes cross section data for incident neutrons up to 200 MeV for 130 nuclei, and a nuclear data library for incident protons up to 200 MeV for 133 nuclei. In order to use JENDL-4.0/HE in MC simulation codes, A Compact ENDF (ACE) -format library of all the neutron and proton incident data has been produced with the nuclear data processing code NJOY2016.9, which was modified to keep laboratory angle-energy distribution form (LAW=67) in the proton data because the original NJOY converts laboratory angle-energy distribution form to continuum energy distribution form (LAW=61) automatically and PHITS can treat only angle-energy distribution form for proton. Benchmark calculations on shielding experiments at TIARA were carried out using PHITS to validate the ACE library of JENDL-4.0/HE.

Nuclear engineering research groups were interested in the phenomena of the interaction between a rising jet and a stratified layer located above in order to better understand the underlying mechanisms of hydrogen accumulation and dispersion in a nuclear reactor containment. Previous studies were performed with an upward jet of fluid heavier or lighter than the upper stratified layer. However, in real configurations i.e. the inner part of a nuclear containment, obstacles such as pipes, components as pumps or reservoirs and walls are present, and they can dissipate the initial momentum of the gas release. Consequently, the upward flow pattern can be considered "diffuse" and buoyant, neither pure jet nor pure plume. Therefore, this challenging issue was part of a project called HYMERES, which was launched and conducted in the OECD/NEA framework. Dedicated experiments were performed to study the interaction between a diffuse buoyant jet and two-layer stratification. In the large-scale MISTRA facility, the HM1-1 test series were conducted in which the erosive flow pattern came from a horizontal hot air jet impinging on a vertical cylinder. These experimental results were offered for a blind and open benchmark exercise.

Under the cooperative effort of the Civil Nuclear Energy R&D Working Group within the framework of the U.S.-Japan bilateral, Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) have been performing benchmark study using the Japan Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) design with metal fuel. In this benchmark study, core characteristic parameters at the beginning of cycle were evaluated by the best estimate deterministic and stochastic methodologies of ANL and JAEA. The results obtained by both institutions show a good agreement with less than 200 pcm of discrepancy in the neutron multiplication factor, and less than 3% of discrepancy in the sodium void reactivity, Doppler reactivity, and control rod worth. The results by the stochastic and deterministic approaches were compared in each party to investigate impacts of the deterministic approximation and to understand potential variations in the results due to different calculation methodologies employed. Impacts of the nuclear data libraries were also investigated using a sensitivity analysis methodology.

Under the cooperative effort of the Civil Nuclear Energy R&D Working Group within the framework of the U.S.-Japan bilateral, Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) have been performing benchmark study using the Japan Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) design with metal fuel. In this benchmark study, the atomic number densities and core characteristics at the end of cycle were evaluated by the best estimate deterministic methodologies of ANL and JAEA. The atomic number densities of plutonium isotopes calculated by both institutions showed a good agreement with less than 0.5% of discrepancy, except for the atomic number density of Pu-241. The atomic number densities of americium and curium isotopes showed less than 6% of discrepancy. The results of core characteristics at the end of cycle obtained by both institutions showed a reasonably good agreement with less than 400 pcm of discrepancy on the neutron multiplication factor, and less than 3% of discrepancy on the sodium void reactivity, Doppler reactivity, and control rod worth. A burnup sensitivity analysis was employed to identify the major factors of the difference in the calculated atomic number densities at the end of cycle.
