Post-test analyses of the CMMR-4 test

山下 拓哉; 間所 寛; 佐藤 一憲

Journal of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Science, 8(2), p.021701_1 - 021701_13, 2022/04

Understanding the final distribution of core materials and their characteristics is important for decommissioning the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F). Such characteristics depend on the accident progression in each unit. However, boiling water reactor accident progression involves great uncertainty. This uncertainty, which was clarified by MAAP-MELCOR Crosswalk, cannot be resolved with existing knowledge and was thus addressed in this work through core material melting and relocation (CMMR) tests. For the test bundle, ZrO$$_{2}$$ pellets were installed instead of UO$$_{2}$$ pellets. A plasma heating system was used for the tests. In the CMMR-4 test, useful information was obtained on the core state just before slumping. The presence of macroscopic gas permeability of the core approaching ceramic fuel melting was confirmed, and the fuel columns remained standing, suggesting that the collapse of fuel columns, which is likely in the reactor condition, would not allow effective relocation of the hottest fuel away from the bottom of the core. This information will help us comprehend core degradation in boiling water reactors, similar to those in 1F. In addition, useful information on abrasive water suspension jet (AWSJ) cutting for debris-containing boride was obtained in the process of dismantling the test bundle. When the mixing debris that contains oxide, metal, and boride material is cut, AWSJ may be repelled by the boride in the debris, which may cut unexpected parts, thus generating a large amount of waste in cutting the boride part in the targeted debris. This information will help the decommissioning of 1F.

Dynamics of water in a catalyst layer of a fuel cell by quasielastic neutron scattering

伊藤 華苗; 山田 武*; 篠原 朗大*; 高田 慎一; 川北 至信

Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 125(39), p.21645 - 21652, 2021/10


The catalyst layer (CL) in polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) plays a critical role in the performance of a PEFC. In this study, we investigate the water dynamics in the CL using quasielastic neutron scattering (QENS) and small-angle neutron scattering. The temperature dependence of the mean square displacement $$<$$u$$^{2}$$$$>$$ shows that the freezing of water does not occur at a melting temperature in the Nafion thin film of the CL, suggesting that the water is confined in a smaller region than $$sim$$15 ${AA}$. The QENS measurements established three kinds of water in the CL: immobile water tightly connected to a sulfonic group, water in a fast mode assigned to free diffusion restricted in a sphere, and water in a slow mode described by a jump diffusion model. Assuming that these three modes were independent, the number of water molecules in each mode was estimated. On discussing the structure and dynamics elucidated in the study, we finally conclude that the coupled model of the fast and slow modes is plausible for describing the diffusion of water confined in the thin Nafion film of the CL.

This study investigated swelling behaviors of montmorillonite with interlayer cations including monovalent Na, K and Cs, and divalent Ca and Sr by molecular dynamics simulations and experimental measurements coupling X-ray diffraction and water vapor adsorption. The comparative analysis provides a consistent picture of the swelling mechanisms of montmorillonite and their dependence on the interlayer cations. From comparative analysis of the effects of the interlayer cations, the main factor affecting the swelling behaviors of montmorillonite with monovalent and divalent interlayer cations seems to be the hydration free energy of the interlayer cations. The crystalline swelling ability and the saturated water contents in the interlayer of montmorillonite can be correlated to the hydration free energy of each interlayer cations. The additional key factor is the preference of outer- or inner-sphere complex of interlayer cations and resulting cations distributions in the interlayer space. This effect has a significant impact in the case of monovalent cations, resulting different swelling behaviors between outer-sphere Na and inner-sphere K and Cs.

The EAGLE ID1 test was performed by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency to demonstrate the effectiveness of fuel discharge from a fuel subassembly with an inner duct structure. The experimental results suggested that the early duct wall failure observed in the test was initiated by high heat flux from the molten pool comprising liquid fuel and steel. In addition, the post-test analyses showed that the high heat flux may be enhanced effectively by molten steel in the pool. In this study, a series of thermal-hydraulic behaviors in the ID1 test was analyzed to investigate the mechanisms of molten pool-to-duct wall heat transfer using a fully Lagrangian approach based on the finite volume particle method. The present 2D particle-based simulation demonstrated that a large thermal load on the duct wall can be caused by direct contact of the liquid fuel with nuclear heat and high-temperature liquid steel.

余剰プルトニウムの扱いは、日本における原子力利用の最重要課題の一つである。本研究では、この課題に取り組むため、超ウラン元素(TRU)核種の核変換をするための溶融塩加速器駆動システム(ADS)の検討を行った。MARDS(Molten salt Accelerator Driven System)と名付けられたこの概念は、硬いスペクトルを実現するため、鉛塩化物とTRU塩化物の混合物を燃料塩として用いる。この燃料塩は核破砕ターゲットとして用いられ、専用のターゲットを必要としない。さらに、ビーム窓が燃料塩と接しない設計にすることで、ADS検討で最も困難なビーム窓設計の設計条件を大きく緩和する。本研究では、この概念について核設計を行い、400MW熱出力、800MeV-7mA陽子ビームを用いることで、約4400kg/40年のプルトニウムを核変換できることを示した。この概念では、加速器としてLINACに代わり円形加速器を用いることができ、従来のJAEA-ADSに比べてより柔軟な設計が可能となる。


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.

"Water-in-salt" (WIS) and "water-in-bisalt" (WIBS) electrolytes have recently been developed for Li-ion batteries. We report Quasielastic Neutron Scattering (QENS) measurements on solutions of a WIS electrolyte at two concentrations, and a WIBS electrolyte at one concentration. The data were Fourier transformed to obtain experimental intermediate scattering functions (ISFs) and compared with corresponding quantities obtained from Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. Both QENS and MD ISFs could be fitted well by a single stretched exponential function to obtain apparent translational diffusion coefficients for the water molecules. The QENS values agree well with the MD simulations for the solutions of a WIS electrolyte at two concentrations, but MD simulations predict a slower relaxation of water compared to QENS for the WIBS electrolyte. Comparison of the incoherent and coherent scattering reveals much faster water dynamics compared with structural relaxation of the ionic framework.

In order to improve the safety of nuclear power plants, it is necessary to make sure measures against their severe accidents. Especially, in the case of a sodium-cooled fast reactor (SFR), there is a possibility of significant energy release due to formation of a large-scale molten fuel pool accompanied by re-criticality in the event of a core disruptive accident (CDA). It is important to ensure in-vessel retention that keeps and confines damaged core material in the reactor vessel even if the CDA occurs. CDA scenario initiated by Unprotected Loss Of Flow (ULOF), which is a typical cause of core damage, is generally categorized into four phases according to the progression of core-disruptive status, which are the initiating, early-discharge, material-relocation and heat-removal phases for the latest design in Japan. During the material-relocation phase, the molten core material flows down mainly through the control rod guide tube and is discharged into the inlet coolant plenum below the bottom of the core. The discharged molten core material collides with the bottom plate of the inlet plenum. Clarification of the accumulation behavior of molten core material with such a collision on the bottom plate is important to reduce uncertainties in the safety assessment of CDA. In present study, in order to make clear behavior of core melt materials during the CDAs of SFRs, analysis was conducted using the SIMMER-III code for a melt discharge simulation experiment in which low-melting-point alloy was discharged into a shallow water pool. This report shows the validation results for the melt behavior by comparing with the experimental data.

Simulated in-vessel and ex-vessel fuel debris, fabricated in the Colima experimental facility set up in the PLINIUS platform at CEA Cadarache, were selected and leaching experiments were carried out under oxidizing conditions. In parallel, geochemical modeling was performed to better understand the experimental concentrations, pH evolutions and secondary phase's formation. Finally, the Fractional Release Rates of the (U, Zr)O$$_{2}$$ matrix for the two kinds of samples (in-vessel and ex-vessel) were found to be close to or one order of magnitude lower than that of SF under oxidizing conditions (from 10$$^{-6}$$ to 10$$^{-7}$$ per day), but the release processes are different.

Mean-field treatment of solvent provides an efficient technique to investigate chemical processes in solution in QM/MM framework. In the algorithm, an iterative calculation is required to obtain the self-consistency between QM and MM regions, which is a time-consuming step. In the present study, we have proposed a non-iterative approach by introducing a linear response approximation (LRA) into the solvation term in the one-electron part of Fock matrix in a hybrid approach between MO calculations and a three-dimensional integral equation theory for molecular liquids (MC-MOZ-SCF; Kido $textit{et al.}$, J. Chem. Phys. $textbf{143}$, 014103 (2015)). To save the computational time, we have also developed a fast method to generate electrostatic potential map near solute and the solvation term in Fock matrix, using Fourier transformation (FT) and real spherical harmonics expansion (RSHE). To numerically validate the LRA and FT-RSHE method, we applied the present approach to water, carbonic acid and their ionic species in aqueous solution. Molecular properties of the solutes were evaluated by the present approach with four different types of initial wave function and compared with those by the original (MC-MOZ-SCF). From the averaged speed up ratio, the present approach is 13.5 times faster than MC-MOZ-SCF.
