Development of a design support system for geological disposal of radioactive waste using a CIM concept

Sugita, Yutaka; Kageyama, Takeshi*; Makino, Hitoshi; Shimbo, Hiroshi*; Hane, Koji*; Kobayashi, Yuichi*; Fujisawa, Yasuo*; Makanae, Koji*; Yabuki, Nobuyoshi*

Proceedings of 17th International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ICCCBE 2018) (Internet), 8 Pages, 2018/06

This paper presents status of development of the iSRE (integrated system for repository engineering) as a design supporting system that enables rational designing of a geological disposal repository. The complimentary technique of construction information modeling/management (CIM) has been employed for the development of iSRE. CIM uses a shared three dimensional (3D) model of associated data through common data models. In this paper, as a design support system that conforms to the characteristics of information management about engineering technology represented by repetition of design during the disposal project period, we examined and designed the function of the "iSRE", constructed a prototype, and confirmed the function through a trial simulating actual work in the disposal project. As a result, with respect to the functions of DB and IF of the iSRE, we got a prospect that these functions can be the foundation of information management on engineering technology, and development of the prototype of the iSRE and its test run extracted issues for practical use of such system.

Development of a design support system for geological disposal using a CIM concept

Sugita, Yutaka; Kawaguchi, Tatsuya; Hatanaka, Koichiro; Shimbo, Hiroshi*; Yamamura, Masato*; Kobayashi, Yuichi*; Fujisawa, Yasuo*; Kobayashi, Ichiro*; Yabuki, Nobuyoshi*

Proceedings of 16th International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ICCCBE 2016) (Internet), p.1173 - 1182, 2016/07

This paper presents status of development of the iSRE (integrated system for repository engineering) as a design supporting system that enables rational designing of a geological disposal repository. The complimentary technique of construction information modeling/management (CIM) has been employed for the development of iSRE. CIM uses a shared three dimensional (3D) model of associated data through common data models. The contents of this paper are the goal of the development, design requirements and required functions, the basic structure of iSRE. The main databases of the iSRE could then be designed with an interface to coordinate with external systems and other databases. Some of the databases and the interfaces were trialed and a data model was then built. A scenario of iSRE operation was also created and the applicability of iSRE using a data model was also examined. Thanks to the use of the existing software, the development process could be conducted while solving problems for realistic test cases. The prospect of the development of the iSRE for geological disposal projects was realized and the iSRE was confirmed as being a useful tool for designing a repository.

Parametric survey on possible impact of partitioning and transmutation of high-level radioactive waste

Oigawa, Hiroyuki; Yokoo, Takeshi*; Nishihara, Kenji; Morita, Yasuji; Ikeda, Takao*; Takaki, Naoyuki*

Proceedings of International Conference on Nuclear Energy System for Future Generation and Global Sustainability (GLOBAL 2005) (CD-ROM), 6 Pages, 2005/10

The benefit of implementing Partitioning and Transmutation (P&T) of high-level wastes was parametrically surveyed. The possible reduction of the geological repository area was estimated. By recycling minor actinides (MA), the repository area required for unit spent fuel was reduced significantly in the case of MOX-LWR. This effect was caused by removal of $$^{241}$$Am which is a long-term heat source. By partitioning the fission products, in addition to MA recycling, further 70-80% reduction from the MA-recovery case can be expected for both UO$$_2$$ and MOX. This significant reduction was independent of the cooling time before the partitioning process.

Psychological approach for siting a NIMBY facility; Assessing public acceptance of a geological repository for radioactive wastes

Otomo, Shoji*; Hirose, Yukio*; Osawa, Hideaki; Onuma, Susumu*

no journal, , 

The study measured public acceptance depending on the area of personal relevance, and the general and personal consensus toward a geological repository. The results that the weaker area of personal relevance, the stronger public acceptance became. The NIMBY reaction to siting a repository was strong. However, the effect of area of personal relevance was mitigated in the scenario where a scientific approach was applied.

Oxidative uranium dissolution from UO$$_{2}$$ in the presence of adsorbed phthalic acid

Kumagai, Yuta; Jonsson, M.*

no journal, , 

Contact of water with spent nuclear fuel is anticipated in scenarios of failure of the repository system for the direct disposal of spent fuel. Upon the direct contact of water, the UO$$_{2}$$ matrix of the fuel is expected to gradually dissolve due to oxidation of uranium by the action of ionizing radiation. In this study, we examined effects of organic acid on the UO$$_{2}$$ dissolution by using phthalic acid as a model compound. We investigated oxidation of UO$$_{2}$$ by exposure to H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ in aqueous solution containing phthalic acid. Significant adsorption of phthalic acid on UO$$_{2}$$ was observed. The coverage of the surface was estimated to reach 80 %. The H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$-exposure experiments revealed that adsorbed phthalic acid has no significant effect on the redox reaction by H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ on the UO$$_{2}$$ surface, despite the high surface density. H$$_{2}$$O$$_{2}$$ oxidation of UO$$_{2}$$ with adsorbed phthalic acid resulted in U dissolution to similar extents with the U dissolution measured in aqueous bicarbonate solutions.
