Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 56(9-10), p.902 - 914, 2019/09

Characterization of fuel debris is required to develop fuel debris removal tools. Especially, knowledge pertaining to the characteristics of molten core-concrete interaction (MCCI) product is needed because of the limited information available at present. The samples of a large-scale MCCI test performed under quenching conditions, VULCANO VW-U1, by CEA were analyzed to evaluate the characteristics of the surface of MCCI product generated just below the cooling water. As a result, the microstructure of the samples were found to be similar despite the different locations of the test sections. The Vickers hardness of each of the phases in these samples was higher than that of previously analyzed samples in another VULCANO test campaign, VBS-U4. From the comparison between analytical results of VULCANO MCCI test product, MCCI product generated under quenching condition is homogeneous and its hardness could be higher than that of the bulk MCCI product.

Determination of fuel debris location and distribution inside primary containment vessel of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station is important to decide further decommissioning step and strategy. We calculate neutron flux produced from fuel debris and secondary particles photon resulted from neutron reaction with nuclides inside fuel debris, including direct photon emission from FPs in fuel debris. Neutron and gamma characteristics resulted from calculation could be use as basis for determination suitable spectrometer system or detector for searching, localizing and treatment of fuel debris.

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 56(7), p.617 - 628, 2019/07

In order to measure the amount of nuclear materials in the fuel debris produced in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, we have designed a measurement system based on a Fast Neutron Direct Interrogation (FNDI) method. In particular, we have developed a fast response detector bank for fast neutron measurements by Monte Carlo simulations. The new bank has more than an order of magnitude faster response compared to the standard ones. We have also simulated the nondestructive measurements of the nuclear materials in homogeneously mixed fuel debris with various matrices which contain Stainless Steel (JIS SUS304), concrete, and various control-rod (CR) contents in the designed system. The results show that at least some types of the fissile materials in the debris can be measured by using the designed system.

福島第一3号機の圧力測定システムでは、運転中の蒸発/凝縮を補正するためにその一部に水柱が採用されている。これらの水柱の一部は事故条件下において蒸発し、正しい圧力データが示されていなかった。RPV(原子炉圧力容器), S/C(圧力抑制室)及びD/W(ドライウェル)の各圧力の比較を通し、水柱変化の効果を評価した。これによりRPV, S/C圧力データに対して水柱変化の効果の補正を行った。補正された圧力を用いて、事故進展中のRPV, S/C, D/W間のわずかな圧力差を評価した。この情報を、3号機の水位、CAMS(格納系雰囲気モニタリングシステム)および環境線量率などのデータとともに活用し、RPVおよびPCVの圧力上昇・下降および放射性物質の環境への放出に着目して事故進展挙動の解釈を行った。RPV内およびRPV外の燃料デブリのドライアウトはこれらの圧力低下を引き起こしている可能性がある一方、S/Cからペデスタルに流入したS/C水がペデスタルに移行した燃料デブリによって加熱されたことがPCV加圧の原因となっている。ペデスタル移行燃料デブリの周期的な再冠水とそのドライアウトは、最終的なデブリの再冠水まで数回の周期的な圧力変化をもたらしている。

A dry method for fuel debris is proposed for decommissioning of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS. We have been evaluating the air-cooling performance of the fuel debris in the dry method by using JUPITER. Because JUPITER can calculate relocation of the corium, it is expected to calculate thermal-hydraulic simulation of the air cooling of the fuel debris in the dry method based on the calculated debris position, shapes and composition with the relocation analysis. In this paper, the experiment of heat transfer and flow visualization of free convection adjacent to upward-facing horizontal heat transfer surface was performed to validate the calculation of the free convective heat transfer with JUPITER. In the experiment, the temperature distribution was measured with a thermocouple tree. In addition, the velocity distribution of free convection was visualized by a particle image velocimetry (PIV). In the comparison between the JUPITER and the experiment, the temperature distribution for the vertical direction in the quasi-steady state was fitted between the JUPITER and the experiment. The velocity distribution calculated with JUPITER was also in good agreement with the experimental result. Therefore, it is expected that JUPITER is a helpful numerical method to evaluate the air-cooling performance of the fuel debris in the dry method.

Treatment policies for debris from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station is not decided, however, any policies may include medium and long term storages of debris. Dry storages may be desirable in terms of costs and handlings, but it is necessary to assess generating hydrogen during storages due to radiolysis of accompanied water with debris before debris storages. Al$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, SiO$$_{2}$$, ZrO$$_{2}$$, UO$$_{2}$$ and cement paste pellets as simulated debris were prepared, which have various porosities and pore size distribution. Weight changes of wet samples were measured at various drying temperatures (100, 200, 300, and 1000$$^{circ}$$C) using a Thermogravimetry, under helium gas flow (50 cc/min) or reduced pressure conditions (reducing pressure rate: 200 Pa in 30 min). From the results, drying curves were evaluated. There is a possibility that cold ceramics can predict drying behaviors of ceramics debris as a simulation because all of the ceramics pellets generally showed similar drying characteristics in this experiment. The cement paste pellets indicated different behavior compared to the ceramics pellets, and the drying time of the cement paste pellets was longer even in 1000$$^{circ}$$C conditions. It is necessary to decide the standard level of the dry state for a drying MCCI products which may be accompanied by concrete.

Evaluation of fuel debris properties is required to develop fuel debris removal tools for the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F). In this research, the mechanical properties of cubic (U,Zr)O$$_{2}$$ samples containing 10-65% ZrO$$_{2}$$ are evaluated. In case of the (U,Zr)O$$_{2}$$ samples containing less than 50% ZrO$$_{2}$$, Vickers hardness and fracture toughness increased, and the elastic modulus decreased slightly with increasing ZrO$$_{2}$$ content. Moreover, all of those values of the (U,Zr)O$$_{2}$$ samples containing 65% ZrO$$_{2}$$ increased slightly compared to (U,Zr)O$$_{2}$$ samples containing 55% ZrO$$_{2}$$. However, higher Zr content (exceeding 50%) has little effect on the mechanical properties. This result indicates that the wear of core-boring bits in the 1F drilling operation will accelerate slightly compared to that in the TMI-2 drilling operation.

アクティブ中性子法の一つであるFNDI法を用いた核物質の計量管理技術の開発を行っている。FNDI法は、対象物にパルス中性子を照射し、そこで発生する核分裂中性子の総数及び消滅時間を用いて核分裂性物質量を求める測定法である。FNDI法を用いたデブリ計測システムの設計解析に取り組んでおり、次のような計算モデルを作成してシミュレーションを実施した。装置高さ: 140cm、装置外径: 80cm、He-3検出器(長さ100cm、直径2.5cm)本数: 16本。デブリの状態として湿式と乾式の2種類を考え、乾式デブリでは中性子の減速効果を補うために収納管周りにポリエチレンを取り付けている。シミュレーションは計算コードMVPを用いた。本発表では燃焼組成や均質度を変えた様々なデブリに対する計算結果及びFNDI法を用いたデブリ測定の適用範囲に関する検討結果を示す。

福島第一原子力発電所(1F)からの燃料デブリ中のホウ素(B)の分布や含有量に係る情報は、取出し時の機械的特性や取出し後の未臨界を担保の検討を行う上で重要な情報と考えられる。本発表では、仏国CEAとの協力のもと、圧力容器内燃料デブリ中のBの挙動を、解析的および実験的に推定した結果について概要を報告する。2号機に対して想定される事故進展シナリオから、材料組成、温度、および酸化量の変遷を推定し、これらの情報を入力とする熱力学計算により、Bの化学形の推定を行った。計算に用いた熱力学データベース(NUCLEA)ではB-O系の実験データが不足しており、これにより酸素濃度が低い条件での制御棒(B-C-Fe-O系)の溶融・凝固過程の計算結果には大きな不確かさを含むと考えられる。不確かさを低減し計算結果の妥当性を検証するため、Fe, B$$_{4}$$C, B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$を高温で溶融・混合させる小規模試験を実施し、凝固後の試料の相状態を分析した。その結果、凝固後の相が金属相(Feリッチな相)と酸化物相(BとOがリッチな相)に分かれ、Fe, Bがそれぞれの相に一定の割合で分配されることが分かった。このような元素の分配挙動は、酸素ポテンシャルを適切に設定した条件で、NUCLEAデータベースによる熱力学計算結果により説明できることが分かった。

Proceedings of 10th Japan-Korea Symposium on Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics and Safety (NTHAS-10) (USB Flash Drive), 7 Pages, 2016/11

A dry method for fuel debris retrieval is proposed for decommissioning of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS. However, air cooling performance has not yet been strictly evaluated for the fuel debris. We have developed an evaluation method based on a numerical simulation code, JUPITER, to understand the cooling performance. Moreover, a heat transfer and flow visualization experiment in air is also conducted in order to validate the numerical analysis. In this paper, to decide measurement targets of the experiment, we roughly estimated the heat transfer of the fuel debris exposed to the air. The rough estimation indicated that the evaluation of the free convection and the radiation heat transfer were important to understand the heat transfer of the debris. Considering the estimations, a preliminary experiment for the free convection in air adjacent to upward-facing horizontal heat transfer surface was conducted to discuss applicability of the temperature measurement systems and the flow visualization systems to the experiment for the validation of the JUPITER. By the preliminary experiment, we confirmed that heat transfer temperature, air temperature and emissivity can be measured with thermocouples and the infrared camera. The applicability of a PIV to measure velocity fields of the free convection in air was also confirmed.

In the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, seawater was injected into the reactor to cool down the nuclear fuels. The injection of the seawater may change the thermal-hydraulic characteristics. Therefore, the thermal hydraulic behavior of seawater has to be evaluated to consider the current status of Fukushima Daiiichi Nuclear Power Plants. However, there is little information about the thermal-hydraulic characteristics of seawater. In order to understand the effects of the seawater on the thermal hydraulic behaviors, a research project was started in Japan Atomic Energy Agency. In this research project, we performed two-different type experiments, one is a heat transfer and visualization experiment by using an internally heated annulus, the other is a heat transfer experiment by using a degraded core simulated test section. In this paper, the outline of the research project and examples of results are reported. For single phase flow conditions, heat transfer coefficients of evaluated by the existing correlation and thermal properties of the artificial seawater almost agreed with the experimental results. For two-phase flow conditions, the results of the artificial seawater were different from that of pure water and the NaCl solution. In the artificial seawater, small solid depositions were observed, and it was considered that these solid depositions affected the thermal hydraulic behavior of the artificial seawater.
