Effect of B$$_{4}$$C absorber material on melt progression and chemical forms of iodine or cesium under severe accident conditions

日高 昭秀

Insights Concerning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident, 4; Endeavors by Scientists, p.341 - 356, 2021/10

Boron carbide (B$$_{4}$$C) used for BWR or EPR absorbers could cause phenomena that never occur in PWR with Ag-In-Cd absorbers during a severe accident (SA). B$$_{4}$$C would undergo a eutectic interaction with stainless steel and enhance core melt relocation. Boron oxidation could increase H$$_{2}$$ generation, and the change of liberated carbon to CH$$_{4}$$ could enhance the generation of CH$$_{3}$$I. HBO$$_{2}$$ generated during B$$_{4}$$C oxidation could be changed to CsBO$$_{2}$$ by combining it with cesium. This may increase Cs deposition into the RCS. There could be differences in the configuration, surface area, and stainless-steel to B$$_{4}$$C weight ratio between the B$$_{4}$$C powder and pellet absorbers. The present task is to clarify the effect of these differences on melt progression, and the iodine or Cs source term. Advancement of this research field could contribute to further sophistication of prediction tools for melt progression and source terms of the Fukushima Accident, and the treatment of CH$$_{3}$$I formation in safety evaluation.

After the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, atmospheric radiocesium concentration has been monitored by the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) as a national project to assess its temporal change from August 2011 to November 2017. During the first two years, the atmospheric radiocesium concentration ranged between 10$$^{-1}$$ - 100 Bq m$$^{-3}$$, while concentrations of 10$$^{-5}$$ - 10$$^{-1}$$ Bq m$$^{-3}$$ were detected about seven years after the accident. Moreover, two years after the accident, the resuspension factor (RF) ranged between 10$$^{-7}$$ - 10$$^{-6}$$ m$$^{-1}$$ and gradually decreased to 10$$^{-11}$$ - 10$$^{-7}$$ m$$^{-1}$$ over time. Thus, the time dependence of RF can be divided into two phases, including a rapid decrease for the first two years, followed by a slow decreasing phase. The annual average RF values were also reduced by about half due to decontamination. Furthermore, to investigate the impact of anthropogenic activities on the RF temporal change, the monitoring data were classified into two groups, namely inside and outside the Fukushima evacuation zone. The RF decreased faster in the second than in the first group, which was consistent with the reported data on the time dependence of the air dose rate, suggesting that anthropogenic activities can promote environmental remediation and thereby reduce atmospheric radiocesium content. In addition, the currently observed RF reduction was faster than that reported for the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident for the same period, consisting with faster environmental remediation at catchment scale in Fukushima compared to Europe.

The impact of freeze-thaw processes and subsequent runoff affecting the Cs-137 ($$^{137}$$Cs) flux and concentration in sediment discharge were revealed in bareland erosion plot following the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident by detailed monitoring and laser scanner measurement on the soil surface. We found that surface topographic changes due to the frost-heaving during the winter- spring period, and rill formation during the summer. We also found the evident seasonal changes in $$^{137}$$Cs concentration; high during the early spring and gradually decreased thereafter, then surface runoff from the plot frequently occurred during spring and autumn when rainfall was high and reached a maximum in summer.

Understanding the relationship between the distribution of radioactive $textsuperscript{134}$Cs and $textsuperscript{137}$Cs in forests and ambient dose equivalent rates ($textit{.{H}}$*(10)) in the air is important for researching forests in eastern Japan affected by the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) accident. This study used a large number of measurements from forest samples, including $$^{134}$$Cs and $textsuperscript{137}$Cs radioactivity concentrations, densities and moisture contents, to perform Monte Carlo radiation transport simulations for $textit{.{H}}$*(10) between 2011 and 2017. Calculated $textit{.{H}}$*(10) at 0.1 and 1 m above the ground had mean residual errors of 19% and 16%, respectively, from measurements taken with handheld NaI(Tl) scintillator survey meters. Setting aside the contributions from natural background radiation, $textsuperscript{134}$Cs and $textsuperscript{137}$Cs in the organic layer and the top 5 cm of forest soil generally made the largest contributions to calculated $textit{.{H}}$*(10). The contributions from $textsuperscript{134}$Cs and $textsuperscript{137}$Cs in the forest canopy were calculated to be largest in the first two years following the accident. Uncertainties were evaluated in the simulation results due to the measurement uncertainties in the model inputs by assuming Gaussian measurement errors. The mean uncertainty (relative standard deviation) of the simulated $textit{.{H}}$*(10) at 1 m height was 11%. The main contributors to the total uncertainty in the simulation results were the accuracies to which the $textsuperscript{134}$Cs and $textsuperscript{137}$Cs radioactivities of the organic layer and top 5 cm of soil, and the vertical distribution of $textsuperscript{134}$Cs and $textsuperscript{137}$Cs within the 5 cm soil layers, were known. Radioactive cesium located in the top 5 cm of soil was the main contributor to $textit{.{H}}$*(10) at 1 m by 2016 or 2017 in the calculation results for all sites.

土壌侵食モデルUniversal Soil Loss Equation (USLE)におけるパラメータの不確実性が、放射性セシウム輸送モデルによる阿武隈川流域における$$^{137}$$Csの動態予測結果に及ぼす影響を評価した。USLEは、降雨量(R)や地質特性(K), 地形的特徴(LS), 土地被覆や土壌侵食防止策(CとP)の5つの物理的に意味のある係数を持つ。土壌, $$^{137}$$Cs総流出量に対し、USLEの係数の中で最も高い感度を持っていたのはCとPであった。そのため、土地被覆や土壌侵食防止策が土壌,$$^{137}$$Csの流出に大きな影響を与えることが分かった。土地利用に着目すると、森林,耕作地,未攪乱の水田からの$$^{137}$$Cs流出率が大きかった。この研究は、土地利用、特に森林,耕作地,未攪乱の水田が$$^{137}$$Csの環境動態に大きな影響を与えることを示した。

Adsorption behavior of cesium on hybrid microcapsules in spent fuel solution

大西 貴士; 小山 真一; 三村 均*

日本イオン交換学会誌, 31(3), p.43 - 49, 2020/10

Hybrid microcapsules (H-MCs) are being development for the column separation of Cs from high-level radioactive liquid waste (HLLW). In this paper, adsorption behavior of H-MCs has been evaluated by a batch method in single-element solution and a spent fuel solution prepared from irradiated MOX fuel. Distribution coefficients ($$K_{rm d}$$s) of various metal ion including Cs were determined for three types of H-MCs (AMP-SG (silica gel enclosing ammonium molybdophosphate), AMP-ALG (calcium alginate gel enclosing ammonium molybdophosphate) and AWP-ALG (calcium alginate gel enclosing ammonium tungstophosphate)) in the spent fuel solution. The three types of H-MCs exhibited higher $$K_{rm d}$$s for Cs than those for the other elements in spent fuel solution. The difference of $$K_{rm d}$$ for the specific element (Cs) and the other elements was larger than one order of magnitude. Therefore, chromatographic separation of Cs in the spent fuel solution using a column packed with H-MCs is promising. It was the same tendency between the spent fuel solution and the single-element solution that the $$K_{rm d}$$ value for Cs of AWP-ALG was the largest followed by that of AMP-ALG and that of AMP-SG. Thus, the mechanism of adsorption of Cs onto these H-MCs would not be changed in the presence of FPs and MAs. Therefore, these types of H-MCs can be effective for separation of Cs in the spent fuel solutions.


Simulation analysis of the Compton-to-peak method for quantifying radiocesium deposition quantities

Malins, A.; 越智 康太郎; 町田 昌彦; 眞田 幸尚

Proceedings of Joint International Conference on Supercomputing in Nuclear Applications + Monte Carlo 2020 (SNA + MC 2020), p.147 - 154, 2020/10

Compton-to-peak analysis is a method for selecting suitable coefficients to convert count rates measured with in situ gamma ray spectrometry to radioactivity concentrations of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs in the environment. The Compton-to-peak method is based on the count rate ratio of the spectral regions containing Compton scattered gamma rays to that with the primary $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs photopeaks. This is known as the Compton-to-peak ratio (RCP). RCP changes as a function of the vertical distribution of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs within the ground. Inferring this distribution enables the selection of appropriate count rate to activity concentration conversion coefficients. In this study, the PHITS Monte Carlo radiation transport code was used to simulate the dependency of RCP on different vertical distributions of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs within the ground. A model was created of a LaBr$$_3$$(Ce) detector used in drone helicopter aerial surveys in Fukushima Prefecture. The model was verified by comparing simulated gamma ray spectra to measurements from test sources. Simulations were performed for the infinite half-space geometry to calculate the dependency of RCP on the mass depth distribution (exponential or uniform) of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs within the ground, and on the altitude of the detector above the ground. The calculations suggest that the sensitivity of the Compton-to-peak method is greatest for the initial period following nuclear fallout when $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs are located close to the ground surface, and for aerial surveys conducted at low altitudes. This is because the relative differences calculated between RCP with respect to changes in the mass depth distribution were largest for these two cases. Data on the measurement height above and on the $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs activity ratio is necessary for applying the Compton-to-peak method to determine the distribution and radioactivity concentration of $$^{134}$$Cs & $$^{137}$$Cs in the ground.

Radiocesium that originated from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident was deposited on the ground surface and has been transported via fluvial discharge, primarily in the form of particulates, to downstream areas and eventually to the ocean. During transportation, some of the radiocesium accumulated on the riverbed. In this study, we quantified the radiocesium deposition on the riverbed in the Odaka River estuary and investigated the radiocesium sedimentation process of the river bottom. Our results show that the radiocesium inventory in the seawater intrusion area is larger than those in the freshwater and marine parts of the estuary. Moreover, the particle-size distribution in the seawater intrusion area shows a high proportion of silt and clay particles compared with the distribution in other areas. The increased radiocesium inventory in this area is attributed to the sedimentation of fine particles caused by hydrodynamic factors (negligible velocity of the river flow) rather than flocculation factor by salinity variation.
