J-PARCの核破砕中性子源で使用する水銀ターゲット容器は、1.3$$times$$1.3$$times$$2.5m$$^{3}$$と大きいため、使用済み容器の廃棄量を低減する観点で、損傷量の大きい前半部を分割できる構造を検討している。分割部のフランジには、高いシール性能(1$$times$$10$$^{-6}$$Pa・m$$^{3}$$/s以下)が必要である。このフランジの材料として、ビーム運転時の熱変形を低減するために低熱膨張材であるインバー合金は有望であるが、弾性係数が低いためボルト締結時の変形が大きくなる。実用上はステンレス鋼で補強するが、HIP接合により広い面積を全面にわたって確実に接合する条件を見出すことが課題であった。そこで、接合温度が異なる試験片(973, 1173, 1373及び1473K)について、引張試験及び数値解析による残留応力評価を行った。973Kで接合した試験片は、拡散層厚さが殆どなく接合界面で破断した。引張強度は、接合温度の上昇とともに減少し、1473Kの場合、約10%低下した。接合面近傍の残留応力は最大50%増加した。これらの結果から、1173Kが最適な接合温度であることを結論付けた。

放射線挙動解析コードPHITSは、加速器駆動核変換システムや核破砕中性子源施設等における放射能・被曝線量評価及び施設の遮蔽設計に重要な役割を演じるが、PHITSの核破砕反応を記述するモデルINCL4.6/GEMは核分裂生成物の収量を大幅に過小評価することが知られており、モデルの高度化が求められている。本研究では、核分裂生成物の収量予測に重要なパラメータとなる「核分裂確率」を現象論的に記述するモデルを提案し、このモデルを粒子輸送計算コードPHITSに組み込まれている脱励起過程計算コードGEMの高エネルギー核分裂モデルに適用した。実験値との比較の結果、広範囲 のサブアクチノイド核種に対する陽子入射,中性子入射及び重陽子入射反応に対して、核分裂断面積を統一的に予測でき、その予測精度は従来モデルよりも大幅に改善することを示した。さらに、本モデルを用いた解析により、核分裂生成物の同位体分布を精度よく求めるためには、核内カスケード過程計算コードINCL4.6における高励起残留核の記述の修正が必要であることを明らかにした。

To perform basic R&D for future Accelerator-driven Systems (ADSs), Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) will construct an ADS target test facility. A Lead-Bismuth Eutectic (LBE) spallation target will be installed in the target test facility and bombarded by pulsed proton beams (250 kW, 400 MeV, 25 Hz, and 0.5 ms pulse duration). To realize the LBE spallation target, cavitation damage due to pressure changes in the liquid metal should be determined preliminarily because such damage is considered very critical from the viewpoint of target safety and lifetime. In this study, cavitation damage due to pressure waves caused by pulsed proton beam injection and turbulent liquid metal flow, were studied numerically from the viewpoint of single cavitation bubble dynamics. Specifically, the threshold of cavitation and effects of flow speed fluctuation on cavitation bubble dynamics in an orifice structure, were investigated in the present work. The results show that the LBE spallation target will not undergo cavitation damage under normal nominal operation conditions, mainly because of the long pulse duration of the pulsed proton beam and the low liquid metal flow velocity. Nevertheless, the possibility of occurrence of cavitation damage, in the orifice structure under certain extreme transient LBE flow conditions cannot be neglected.

To perform basic research and development to realize future accelerator-driven systems, a lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) alloy spallation target will be installed within the framework of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) project, Japan Atomic Energy Agency. The target will be bombarded by high-power pulsed proton beams (250 kW, 400 MeV, 25 Hz, and 0.5 ms in pulse duration). The Beam Window (BW) of the spallation target is critical because it should survive under severe conditions that occur, i.e., high temperature, high irradiation, intense stress, and various kinds of damage. Therefore, the target vessel should be carefully designed to obtain an adequate safety margin. Our previous research indicates that there is a stagnant flow region in the LBE at the BW tip due to the symmetric configuration of the target, which causes high temperature and concentration of stress on the BW. On the basis of our previous work, three types of upgraded target head designs are studied in the current research to reduce/move the stagnant flow region from the BW tip and to increase the target safety margin. Thermal-hydraulic analyses and structural analyses for the target head designs are carried out numerically under a steady-state condition. Results illustrate that the designs can almost eliminate the stagnant flow region in the LBE. As a consequence, the concentration of thermal stress on the BW is released and greatly decreased. The safety margin of the target is improved through this study.

At the J-PARC pulsed spallation neutron source, liquid hydrogen moderators composed of 99.8% parahydrogen associated with light-water premoderator have been providing high intensity cold and thermal neutron beams. In the design stage, simulations have shown not only high total neutron intensity in the coupled moderator but also a local neutron-brightness increase at the edges. The edge-effect-brightness increase is also exploited in the design of the European Spallation Source (ESS) moderators, which are based on 99.8% parahydrogen, but thin (thickness: 3 cm) to enhance the neutron brightness. In this study, the spatial distribution of the neutron brightness at the surface of the coupled moderator in the J-PARC pulsed spallation neutron source was directly measured with the pinhole geometry to validate the calculated edge-brightness enhancement. The brightness distribution at the moderator surface was clearly observed as predicted by a Monte Carlo simulation, proving the validity of the simulation tools used in the design-optimization process of the J-PARC and ESS moderator.

大強度陽子加速器施設(J-PARC)において広く用いられる構造材に対する陽子入射の核破砕反応による放射化断面積をシステマティックに測定するための一連の実験を開始した。J-PARCの3GeVシンクロトロン陽子加速器施設において提案した測定方法の妥当性の確認のため、実験データが比較的豊富に存在するアルミニウムの断面積を測定した。陽子入射に伴い、アルミニウムより$$^{7}$$Be, $$^{22}$$Na、および$$^{24}$$Naを生成する断面積を、0.4, 1.3, 2.2, 3.0GeVのエネルギーに対し測定した。有効照射陽子数決定法により実験データの妥当性を確認し、問題ないことを確認した。本実験で得た断面積を、既存の実験データ,評価済み核データ(JENDL-HE/2007)およびPHITSによる計算値と比較した。JENDL-HE/2007は実験データと一致を示したものの、PHITSによる計算値は40%程度過小評価した。この原因には、PHITSに用いられる蒸発モデルに起因すると考えられたため、Furihataにより提案されたGEMモデルを適用したところ、実験を再現できるようになった。

大強度陽子加速器施設(J-PARC)の物質・生命科学実験施設(MLF)では、高エネルギーパルス陽子ビーム(3GeV, 25Hz)を用いた核破砕反応により発生した中性子を、液体水素モデレータで減速し、実験装置にパルス冷熱中性子を供給する。モデレータや反射体容器構造材の放射線損傷により2020年ごろに交換時期を迎える。現在、交換に向けて、モデレータ及び反射体の予備機製作を進めている。予備機は、現在MLFで使用しているものと外観上は同じであるが、内部構造において、大きく2つ改良を加えた。一つは、水素輸送配管に線膨張係数の最も小さなインバー材を採用したこと。もう一つは、中性子ビームパルスをシャープにする熱中性子吸収材として、新たに金・インジウム・カドミウム(Au-In-Cd)材を開発したことである。5重の多重配管を構成する水素輸送配管では、インバー材を採用することで、熱収縮量を確保するために必要であった偏心構造を同軸構造に変え、製作性を大きく向上させた。熱中性子吸収材として、Au-In-Cd材は、残留放射能を大きく軽減する材料で、この用途に初めて開発されたものである。本件では、これら材料を導入したモデレータ・反射体の製作状況について報告する。

大強度陽子加速器施設(J-PARC)のパルス核破砕中性子源は、以下に示す独自の特長を有するモデレータを用いて高強度かつ幅の狭いパルス状の冷中性子を供給している。独自の特長とは、(1)100%比率のパラ水素を用いることでピークが高くテイル成分の低い中性子パルスをつくる、(2)直径14cm、高さ12cmの円筒形状とすることで、50.8$$^{circ}$$という広い取り出し角度範囲で高強度の中性子を利用できる、(3)銀-インジウム-カドミウム合金製の中性子吸収材を使用し、幅が狭く、テイル成分の低い中性子パルスをつくる、というものである。実際、低出力運転時の測定によって、1MWの運転時には、結合型モデレータで4.5$$times$$10$$^{12}$$n/cm$$^{2}$$/s/srの中性子束が得られ、ポイズン型モデレータを使用する中性子実験装置(BL08)では$$Delta$$d/d 0.035%の優れた分解能が得られることを確認した。ここで、dは結晶試料内のある方向の格子面と中性子の入射方向とのなす角度に垂直な方向の面間隔を意味する。1MWで年間5000時間の運転を行うという目標の達成に向けて、現在、微少気泡を水銀ターゲットに注入し、ターゲット容器に生じるキャビテーション損傷を抑制する技術開発やターゲット容器構造を溶接部やボルト接続をできるだけ減らす設計改良を行っている。

Validation of PHITS spallation models from the perspective of the shielding design of transmutation experimental facility

岩元 大樹; 明午 伸一郎

EPJ Web of Conferences (Internet), 153, p.01016_1 - 01016_9, 2017/09


The impact of different spallation models implemented in the particle transport code PHITS on the shielding design of Transmutation Experimental Facility (TEF) was investigated. For 400-MeV proton incident on a lead-bismuth eutectic target. An effective dose rate at the end of a thick radiation shield (3-m-thick iron and 3-m-thick concrete) calculated by the Li${`e}$ge intranuclear cascade (INC) model version 4.6 (INCL4.6) coupled with the GEM code (INCL4.6/GEM) yields $$sim$$1.5 times higher than the Bertini INC model (Bertini/GEM). A comparison with experimental data for 500-MeV proton incident on a thick lead target shows that the INCL4.6/GEM is in fairly good agreement with the experiment, which suggest that the prediction accuracy of INCL4.6/GEM would be better than that of Bertini/GEM. In contrast, it is found that the dose rates in beam ducts in front of targets calculated by the INCL4.6/GEM are lower than those by the Bertini/GEM. Since both models underestimate the experimental results for neutron-production double-differential cross sections at 180$$^{circ}$$ for 140-MeV proton incident on carbon, iron, and gold targets, we conclude that it is necessary to allow for a margin of uncertainty caused by the spallation models, which is a factor of two, in estimating the dose rate induced by neutron streaming through a beam duct.

Monte Carlo (MC) simulations are an essential tool to determine fundamental features of a neutron beam, such as the neutron flux or the $$gamma$$ ray background, that sometimes can not be measured or at least not in every position or energy range. Until recently, the most widely used MC codes in this field had been MCNPX and FLUKA. However, the Geant4 toolkit has also become a competitive code for the transport of neutrons after the development of the native Geant4 format for neutron data libraries, G4NDL. In this context, we present the Geant4 simulations of the neutron spallation target of the n TOF facility at CERN, done with version 10.1.1 of the toolkit. The first goal was the validation of the intra-nuclear cascade models implemented in the code using, as benchmark, the characteristics of the neutron beam measured at the first experimental area (EAR1), especially the neutron flux and energy distribution, and the time distribution of neutrons of equal kinetic energy, the so-called Resolution Function. The second goal was the development of a Monte Carlo tool aimed to provide useful calculations for both the analysis and planning of the upcoming measurements at the new experimental area (EAR2) of the facility.

To realize the future Accelerator-driven systems (ADSs), an ADS Target Test Facility (TEF-T) will be constructed within the framework of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) project to carry out basic R&Ds. A LBE spallation target will be installed in the TEF-T facility and be bombarded by high power pulsed proton beams (250 kW, 400 MeV, 25 Hz, 0.5 ms in pulse duration). The beam window (BW) of the spallation target is critical because it should survive under severe conditions, i.e., high temperature, high irradiation, intense stress and various occurred damage. Therefore, the target vessel should be carefully designed to obtain enough safety margin. Our previous research indicated that there are stagnant flow region in LBE at the BW tip due to the symmetric configuration of target, which causes high temperature and stress concentration on the BW. To reduce/move the stagnant flow region from BW tip and to increase the target safety margin, on the basis of our previous work, three types of upgraded target head designs were performed steadily in the present study. The thermal-hydraulic analyses and structural analyses for the target head designs have been carried out numerically under a steady-state condition. Results illustrated that the designs can almost eliminate the stagnant flow region in LBE. As a consequence, the thermal stress concentration on BW has been released and greatly decreased. The safety margin of target has been improved through this study.

To investigate the applicability of the pulsed neutron source (PNS) method using a pulsed spallation neutron source (PSNS) for an on-line subcriticality monitoring system for an accelerator-driven system (ADS), a subcriticality experiment is conducted using Kyoto University Criticality Assembly (KUCA) in combination with the fixed-field alternating gradient (FFAG) accelerator. Reactivity values obtained from different traditional techniques, the area-ratio method and the $$alpha$$-fitting method, are discussed with respect to the applicability to on-line subcriticality monitoring. The result shows that the area-ratio method robustly and accurately monitors subcriticality in shallow subcritical states of negative reactivity of up to a few dollars; however with this method, it faces problems with temporal fluctuations, spatial dispersion, and sensitivity to the proton-beam current with increasing depth of subcriticality. As a complement to this method, it is shown that the $$alpha$$-fitting method alleviates such problems in deep subcritical state. Moreover, a proposed fitting technique using the maximum-likelihood estimation method based on the Poisson distribution is robust enough to be applicable for measuring negative reactivity of up to roughly nine dollars.

The impact of different spallation models and parametrisations of nucleon-nucleus interactions in PHITS on nuclear characteristics of an accelerator-driven system (ADS) is investigated. Cut-off neutrons below 20 MeV calculated by a current default option of the spallation model (i.e., Li${`e}$ge Intranuclear Cascade (INC) model version 4.6, INCL4.6) are found to be 14% less than those by the old spallation model (it i.e. Bertini INC model). This decrease increases the proton beam current that drives the 800-MW thermal power, and impacts various ADS parameters, including material damage, nuclear heating of the proton beam window (PBW), and the inventory of spallation products. To validate these options based on the ADS neutronics design, we conduct benchmark calculations of the total and nonelastic cross sections, thick target neutron yields, and activation reaction rate distributions. The results suggest that Pearlstein-Niita systematics, which is a default option of the nucleon-nucleus interaction parametrisation, would be best option and that the Bertini INC is better suited for cut-off neutrons than INCL4.6. However, because of the difficulty in making a definite conclusion on the spallation models, we conclude that relatively large uncertainty in the cut-off neutrons, which is the difference between the two spallation models (i.e. 14%), should be considered.
