Benchmark analysis of KRITZ-2 critical experiments

Okumura, Keisuke; Kawasaki, Kenji*; Mori, Takamasa

JAERI-Research 2005-018, 64 Pages, 2005/08


In the KRITZ-2 critical experiments, criticality and pin power distributions were measured at room temperature and high temperature (about 245 degree C) for three different cores loading slightly enriched UO$$_{2}$$ or MOX fuels. For nuclear data testing, benchmark analysis was carried out with a continuous-energy Monte Carlo code MVP and its four nuclear data libraries based on JENDL-3.2, JENDL-3.3, JEF-2.2 and ENDF/B-VI.8. As a result, fairly good agreements with the experimental data were obtained with any libraries for the pin power distributions. However, the JENDL-3.3 and ENDF/B-VI.8 give under-prediction of criticality and too negative isothermal temperature coefficients for slightly enriched UO$$_{2}$$ cores, while the older nuclear data JENDL-3.2 and JEF-2.2 give rather good agreements with the experimental data. From the detailed study with an infinite unit cell model, it was found that the differences among the libraries are mainly due to the different fission cross section of U-235 in the energy rage below 1.0 eV.

This report summarizes the activity (FY2000-2003) of Working Group (WG) on Evaluation of Nuclide Generation and Depletion under Subcommittee on Nuclear Fuel Cycle of Japanese Nuclear Data Committee. In the WG, analyses of Post Irradiation Examinations have been carried out for UO$$_{2}$$ and MOX fuels irradiated in PWRs, BWRs and FBRs, and for actinide samples irradiated in fast reactors, by using ORIGEN or more detailed calculation codes with their libraries based on JENDL-3.2, JENDL-3.3 and other foreign nuclear data files. From these results, current prediction accuracy and problems for evaluation of nuclide generation and depletion are discussed. Furthermore, this report covers other products of our activity; development of the ORIGEN libraries for PWR, BWR and FBR based on JENDL-3.3, study on introduction of neutron spectrum index to ORIGEN calculations, and results of questionnaire survey on desirable accuracy of ORIGEN calculations.

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 42(1), p.130 - 133, 2005/01

 Times Cited Count:7 Percentile:46.25(Nuclear Science & Technology)

Covariances of neutron cross sections for $$^{235}$$U were evaluated in the resonance region to estimate the accuracy of various design calculations. Energy-averaged cross-section covariances were deduced from available measurements by using the least-square method. The data obtained were combined with the $$^{235}$$U data of JENDL-3.3 in order to complete uncertainty infomation required by users.

Integral validation of minor actinide nuclear data by using samples irradiated at dounreay prototype fast reactor

Tsujimoto, Kazufumi; Oigawa, Hiroyuki; Shinohara, Nobuo

Proceedings of International Conference on Nuclear Data for Science and Technology (ND 2004), 4 Pages, 2004/09

Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) has been developing technologies for partitioning and transmutation of long-lived nuclides in high-level radioactive waste. In the dedicated transmutation systems, reliable neuclear data of minor actinide (MA) are indispensable to obtain a reliable design of a transmutation system. Present status of MA nuclear data is not so satisfactory. To obtain reliable nuclear data of MA, radiochemically analyzed data of the actinide samples irradiated at the Dounreay Prototype Fast Reactor (PFR) were used in this study. The samples were actinide oxides of 21 different isotopes from thorium to curium. The burnup calculations were performed and the calculated results were compared with the experimental data to validate the neutron cross section data of MA in an evaluated nuclear data file JENDL-3.3, ENDF/B-VI, and JEFF-3.0. The results for uraniumu and plutoniumu samples show good agreements with experimental data. On the other hand, in the results for americium and curiumu, relatively large disagreement with experimental data are showed.

JAERI-Data/Code 2004-011, 119 Pages, 2004/07


The 2nd version of code system, LICEM-2, has been developed to produce neutron cross section libraries for the MVP continuous energy Monte Carlo code from an evaluated nuclear data library in the ENDF format. The code system can process nuclear data in the latest ENDF-6 format and produce cross section libraries for MVP's capability of transport calculation at arbitrary temperature. By using the present system, MVP neutron cross section libraries have been prepared from the latest evaluations of JENDL, ENDF/B and JEFF data bases. This report describes the specification of MVP neutron cross section library, the details of each code in the code system, how to use them and MVP neutron cross section libraries produced with the code system.

Analysis of the TRIGA MARK-II benchmark IEU-COMP-THERM-003 with Monte Carlo code MVP

Mahmood, M. S.; Nagaya, Yasunobu; Mori, Takamasa

JAERI-Tech 2004-027, 30 Pages, 2004/03


The benchmark experiments of the TRIGA Mark-II reactor in the ICSBEP handbook have been analyzed with the Monte Carlo code MVP using the cross section libraries based on JENDL-3.3, JENDL-3.2 and ENDF/B-VI.8. MCNP calculations have been also performed with the ENDF/B-VI.6 library for comparison between the MVP and MCNP results. For both cores labeled 132 and 133, which have different core configurations, the ratio of the calculated to the experimental results (C/E) for keff obtained by the MVP code is 0.999 for JENDL-3.3, 1.003 for JENDL-3.2, and 0.998 for ENDF/B-VI.8. For the MCNP code, the C/E values are 0.998 for both the Core 132 and 133. All the calculated results agree with the reference values within the experimental uncertainties. The results obtained by MVP with ENDF/B-VI.8 and MCNP with ENDF/B-VI.6 differ only by 0.02% for Core 132, and by 0.01% for Core 133.

Evaluation of neutronic characteristics of TRACY water-reflected core system

Sono, Hiroki; Yanagisawa, Hiroshi*; Miyoshi, Yoshinori

JAERI-Tech 2003-096, 84 Pages, 2004/01


Prior to the supercritical experiments using a water-reflected core of the TRACY Facility, neutronic characteristics regarding criticality and reactivity of the core system were evaluated. In the analyses, a continuous energy Monte Carlo code, MVP, and a two-dimensional transport code, TWOTRAN, were used together with a nuclear data library, JENDL-3.3. By comparison to the characteristics in the former-used bare core system of TRACY, the water reflector was estimated not to change the kinetic parameter and to reduce the critical solution level by $$sim$$20 %, the temperature coefficient of reactivity by 6$$sim$$10 %, and the void coefficient of reactivity by $$sim$$18 %, respectively. According to the Nordheim-Fuchs model, the first peak power during a power excursion was evaluated to be $$sim$$15 % smaller than that in the bare system under the same conditions of fuel and reactivity insertion. The influence of the void feedback effect of reactivity, which is left out of consideration in the model, on the power characteristics will be evaluated from the results of the experiments.

New evaluations of neutron nuclear data for Uranium, Plutonium, and Thorium isotopes which are essential for applications to nuclear technology were carried out for the Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library, JENDL-3.3. The objectives of the current release of JENDL were to fix several problems which have been reported for the previous version, to improve the accuracy of the data, and to evaluate covariances for the important nuclides. Quantities in JENDL-3.2 were extensively re-evaluated or replaced by more reliable values. The heavy nuclide data in JENDL-3.3 were validated with several benchmark tests, and it was reported that the current release gave a good prediction of criticalities.

JAERI-Research 2003-021, 49 Pages, 2003/09


Evaluations of neutron nuclear data for medium-heavy nuclides were performed for JENDL-3.3. The present work was undertaken to remove the drawbacks of the previous library JENDL-3.2. Recent measurements and nuclear model calculations were taken into account to improve the accuracy of the evaluated data. The data on natural elements were not produced in order to solve a problem of the inconsistency between elemental and isotopic data except for carbon and vanadium in JENDL-3.3.

Analyses of neutronic characteristics of STACY heterogeneous core with 1.5-cm-lattice-pitch fuel pins

Sono, Hiroki; Fukaya, Yuji; Yanagisawa, Hiroshi; Miyoshi, Yoshinori

JAERI-Tech 2003-065, 61 Pages, 2003/07


A series of critical experiments using a heterogeneous core of the Static Experiment Critical Facility (STACY) in the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute is planned in F.Y. 2003. In the experiment, the core is composed of uranyl nitrate solution ($$^{235}$$U enrichment 6 wt%) and 333 pins of uranium dioxide ($$^{235}$$U enrichment 5 wt%) loaded in lattice-pitch of 1.5 cm. Prior to the experiment, neutronic characteristics are analyzed to evaluate neutronic safety and criticality limitations of the core. The analyzed items are the parameters on criticality, reactivity and reactor shutdown margins. In the analyses, a Monte Carlo code, MVP, and a neutronics code system, SRAC, have been used with an evaluated nuclear data library, JENDL-3.3. By using the calculated characteristics, simplified equations to interpolate these values and criticality limitations of the core are evaluated. It has been also confirmed that the reactor shutdown margins will comply with safety criteria under all fuel conditions in the experiments.
