A large amount of cesium (Cs) chemisorbed onto stainless steel is predicted to be present especially in the upper region of reactor pressure vessel (RPV) during light water reactor severe accident (LWR SA) and a chemisorption model was developed for estimation of such amounts of Cs for stainless steel type 304 (SS304). However, this existing chemisorption model cannot accurately reproduce experimental results. Therefore, in this study, a modified Cs chemisorption model which accounts for silicon content in SS304 and concentration of cesium hydroxide (CsOH) in gaseous phases was constructed by combining penetration theory for gas-liquid mass transfer with chemical reaction and mass action law for CsOH decomposition at interface between gaseous and solid phases. As a result, it was found that the modified model was able to reproduce the experimental data more accurately than the existing model.

From both the polarized and depolarized Raman scattering spectra of supercritical water a peak located at around 1600 cm, attributed normally to bending mode of water molecules, was experimentally observed to vanish, whereas the corresponding peak remains clearly visible in the measured infrared (IR) absorption spectrum. In this computational study a theoretical formulation for analyzing the IR and Raman spectra is developed via first principles molecular dynamics combined with the modern polarization theory. We demonstrate that the experimentally observed peculiar behavior of the IR and Raman spectra for water are well reproduced in our computational scheme. We discuss the origins of a feature observed at 1600 cm in Raman spectra of ambient water.

Since it is generally difficult to predict the occurrence of natural disasters such as earthquakes, a performance management system that always maintains the safety and functionalities of structures is required, especially for critical ones like nuclear power plants. In order to realize such a system, it is becoming important to carry out modeling procedures and analyses in detail to better understand the real phenomena. Such details are important in understanding the phenomena occurring in frame structures such as piping systems which are considered to be one of the vulnerable parts in nuclear power plants. The aim of our research is to solve the dynamic behavior of piping systems in nuclear power plants which are complicated assemblages of parts. The spectral element method is adopted in this work and the formulation considering a shear deformation of a frame element is described. The Timoshenko beam theory is introduced for the purpose of this formulation. The validity of the presented element will be shown through comparisons made with the conventional beam.

In the case of evaluations for the highest temperature of the fuels in the HTTR, it is very important to expect the power density distributions accurately; therefore, it is necessary to improve the analytical model with the neutron diffusion and the burn-up theory. The power density distributions are analyzed in terms of two models, the one mixing the fuels and the burnable poisons homogeneously and the other modeling them heterogeneously. Moreover these analytical power density distributions are compared wtih the ones derived from the gross -ray measurements and the Monte Carlo calculational code with continuous energy. As a result the homogeneous mixed model isn't enough to expect the power density distributions of the core in the axial direction; on the other hand, the heterogeneous model improves the accuracy.

Adiabatic potential energy surfaces of the lowest three doublet states (1A', 2A', and 1A") for the BrH system have been calculated globally using the MRCI+Q method with the aug-cc-pVTZ basis set. Spin-orbit effects were considered on the basis of Breit-Pauli Hamiltonian. The calculated adiabatic energies were fitted to the analytical functional form of many-body expansion. The barrier heights of the abstraction and exchange reactions on the ground-state PES were calculated to be 1.28 and 11.71 kcal mol, respectively, at the MRCI+Q/aug-cc-pVTZ level of theory. The fits for the three PESs were successful within the accuracy of 0.1 kcal mol. Thermal rate constants for the abstraction and exchange reactions and their isotopic variants were calculated with the fitted 1A' PES using the ICVT/LAG method. The calculated rate constants for the abstarction reactions agree fairly well with experiment but those for the exchange reactions were much smaller than experiment, which suggests that the reliable experimental data are still insufficient.
