The OECD/NEA Benchmark Study at the Accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (BSAF) project, which started in 2012 and continued until 2018, was one of the earliest responses to the accident at Fukushima Daiichi. The project, divided into two phases addressed the investigation of the accident at Unit 1, 2 and 3 by Severe Accident (SA) codes until 500 h focusing on thermal-hydraulics, core relocation, Molten Corium Concrete Interaction (MCCI) and fission products release and transport. The objectives of BSAF were to make up plausible scenarios based primarily on SA forensic analysis, support the decommissioning and inform SA codes modeling. The analysis and comparison among the institutes have brought up vital insights regarding the accident progression identifying periods of core meltdown and relocation, Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) and Primary Containment Vessel (PCV) leakage/failure through the comparison of pressure, water level and CAMS signatures. The combination of code results and inspections (muon radiography, PCV inspection) has provided a picture of the current status of the debris distribution and plant status. All units present a large relocation of core materials and all of them present ex-vessel debris with Unit 1 and Unit 3 showing evidences of undergoing MCCI. Uncertainties have been identified in particular on the time and magnitude of events such as corium relocation in RPV and into cavity floor, RPV and PCV rupture events. Main uncertainties resulting from the project are the large and continuous MCCI progression predicted by basically all the SA codes and the leak pathways from RPV to PCV and PCV to reactor building and environment. The BSAF project represents a pioneering exercise which has set the basis and provided lessons learned not only for code improvement but also for the development of new related projects to investigate in detail further aspects of the Fukushima Daiichi accident.

Study on eutectic melting behavior of control rod materials in core disruptive accidents of sodium-cooled fast reactors, 2; Thermophysical properties of eutectic mixture containing of high concentration boron in a solid state

高井 俊秀; 古川 智弘; 山野 秀将

Proceedings of 2020 International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE 2020) (Internet), 6 Pages, 2020/08

Eutectic melting behavior between boron carbide (B$$_{4}$$C) as control rod material and stainless steel (SS) as structural material and subsequent relocation behavior plays an important role to achieve an in-vessel retention concept which ensures long-term coolability of degraded core under core disruptive accident, because these behaviors are expected to reduce the neutronic reactivity significantly. However, these behaviors have never been simulated in severe accident computer codes before. Since 2016, JAEA has been conducting a research project to develop physical models that describe these behaviors. For the physical models' development, it is necessary to obtain thermophysical properties of SS-B$$_{4}$$C eutectic mixture with various B$$_{4}$$C concentration and maintain them as a database. In this work, the density and specific heat of SS-17 mass%B$$_{4}$$C in a solid state are obtained and compared with these of stainless steel containing 0 and 5 mass%B$$_{4}$$C.

福島第一原子力発電所から取り出された燃料デブリへの効果的な処置方策を提案する上では、燃料デブリ中でUがとりうる化学形についての詳細な調査が不可欠である。特に、アクセス性に乏しい圧力容器内に残留する燃料デブリに関する情報が重要である。本研究では、圧力容器内燃料デブリ中、特にマイナー相におけるUの化学形を評価することを目的とし、1F-2号機の事故進展での材料のリロケーション及び環境変化を考慮した熱力学計算を実施した。組成,温度,酸素量といった計算条件は、既存の事故進展解析の結果から設定した。計算の結果、Uの化学形はFeとOの量によって変化し、Feの少ない領域で$$alpha$$-(Zr,U)(O)、Feの多い領域でFe$$_{2}$$(Zr,U) (Laves相)の生成が顕著であった。還元性条件で生成するこれらの金属相中には数パーセントのUが移行しており、燃料デブリの処置において核物質の化学分離を考慮する場合はこれらの相の生成に留意すべきと考えられる。

Under the scope of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1-F) severe accident (SA), Cs retention is of high interest as its impacts Cs distribution, decommissioning and dismantling work of the reactor. To derive consistent and appropriate models for such process, accurate thermodynamic properties of Cs chemisorbed species are required by the SA analysis codes. In particular, for CsFeSiO$$_4$$, a newly identified Cs chemisorbed species under conditions similar to 1-F SA, the thermodynamic data are unknown in literature. We propose in this work the obtention of the fundamental properties of this substance by theoretical approaches. The consistency and appropriateness of derived computational methodology have been investigated by calculating the thermodynamic properties of relatively known Cs-Si-O substances. It was found that our computational methodology provides excellent agreement with literature data lying between 1-4% for the formation energy, 1-5% for standard entropy and heat capacity. The thermodynamic properties of CsFeSiO$$_4$$ in function of temperature have been estimated for the first time using harmonic and quasi-harmonic approximations, values being consistent with both methodologies.

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.

In severe accident scenarios for sodium-cooled fast reactors, it is desirable to gradually consume hydrogen generated by various ex-vessel phenomena without posting a challenge to containment integrity. An effective means is combustion of hydrogen jets containing sodium vapor and mist, but previous studies have been limited to determining ignition thresholds experimentally. The aim of this study was to visualize the ignition process in detail to investigate the ignition mechanism of hydrogen-sodium mixed jets. The ignition experiments of the hydrogen jet containing sodium mist were carried out under a condition of little turbulence. The ignition process was measured with an optical measurement system comprised of a high-speed camera and an image intensifier, and a spatial distribution of luminance was analyzed by image processing. Detail observation revealed that sodium mist particles burned as scattering sparks inside the jet and that hydrogen ignited around the mist particles. Additionally, the experimental results and a simple heat balance calculation indicated that the combustion heat of sodium mist particles could ignite the hydrogen as the heterogeneous ignition source in the fuel temperature range where the mist particle formation was promoted.

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。

Characterization of the fuel debris is required to develop fuel debris removal tools for the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F). In this study, the VULCANO MCCI test, VBS-U4, was selected as 1F similar conditions and the characteristics of the samples were examined. In the molten pool sample, the round-edged corium-rich oxides region, with diameters of 1-10 mm, is surrounded by a concrete-rich oxide region. It shows convection of the molten pool. Other samples also show the features of the MCCI progression. The main chemical forms of the samples are SiO$$_{2}$$, (U,Zr)O$$_{2}$$, Fe and so on. The microstructure of the samples is heterogeneous structure composed of these phases. The difference in Vickers hardness between the metallic phases and the oxide phases is a distinctive characteristic. It can be noted that the heterogeneous distribution of metallic phases in 1F MCCI products interrupt with the removal operation such as by damaging the core-boring bit.

Japan Atomic Energy Agency is pursuing the development and application of the methodologies on fission product (FP) chemistry for source term analysis by using integrated severe accident analysis code THALES2/KICHE. Generally, specific chemical forms of iodine and cesium such as cesium iodide (CsI) and cesium hydroxide (CsOH) were assumed in the source term analysis for light water reactors using an integrated severe accident analysis code. The accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station leads possible chemical effects of B$$_{4}$$C control materials and atmosphere on chemical speciation of iodine and cesium such as cesium metaborate (CsBO$$_{2}$$) and hydrogen iodide (HI). The difference of chemical speciation affects not only the FP behavior in the reactor coolant system (RCS) and transport to containment but also pH value of the suppression pool water in the containment. The pH value is one of the influential factors on the release of gaseous iodine (I$$_{2}$$ and organic iodine) from containment liquid phase. In the present study, the improvement of the THALES2/KICHE code in terms of FP chemistry in RCS was performed and applied to source term analysis for severe accidents at a boil water reactor with Mark-I containment vessel. This paper discusses the chemical speciation of iodine and cesium, and FP behavior and transport to containment.
