In the prototype fast breeder reactor Monju, fuel reactivity worth was measured at six positions as the reactivity corresponding to the differences of critical control rod positions between cores with and without a dummy fuel subassembly. In this paper, the measurements are evaluated in detail, and their reliability and usefulness as the validation data for fast reactor neutronics design methodologies are investigated through a comparison with calculations by using the latest methodology developed in Japan Atomic Energy Agency. Calculated-to-experiment values (C/Es) and their uncertainties of fuel reactivity worth were 0.97 to 1.02 and 4% to 6%. Through this study, the measurements and calculations were found consistent and reliable.

Proceedings of International Conference on Topical Issues in Nuclear Installation Safety; Strengthening Safety of Evolutionary and Innovative Reactor Designs (TIC 2022) (Internet), 10 Pages, 2022/10

The WGAMA activity achievements have been published as technical reports, becoming reference materials to discuss innovative methods, materials and technologies in the fields of thermal-hydraulics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and severe accidents (SAs). The International Standard Problems (ISPs) and Benchmarks of computer codes have been supported by a huge amount of the databases for the code validation necessary for the reactor safety assessment with accuracy. The paper aims to review and summarize the recent WGAMA outcomes with focus on new advanced reactor applications including small modular reactors (SMRs). Particularly, discussed are applicability of major outcomes in the relevant subjects of passive system, modelling innovation in CFD, severe accident management (SAM) countermeasures, advanced measurement methods and instrumentation, and modelling robustness of safety analysis codes. Although large portions of the outcomes are considered applicable, design-specific subjects may need careful considerations when applied. The WGAMA efforts, experiences and achievements for the safety assessment of operating nuclear power plants including SA will be of great help for the continuous safety improvements required for the advanced reactors including SMRs.

Pool scrubbing is a major topic in water cooled nuclear reactor technology as it is one of the means for mitigating the source-term to the environment during a severe accident. Pool scrubbing phenomena include coupled interactions between bubble hydrodynamics, aerosols and gaseous radionuclides retention mechanisms under a broad range of thermal-hydraulic conditions as per accident scenarios. Modeling pool scrubbing in some relevant accident scenarios has shown to be affected by substantial uncertainties. In this context, IPRESCA (Integration of Pool scrubbing Research to Enhance Source-term CAlculations) project aims to promote a better integration of international research activities related to pool scrubbing by providing support in experimental research to broaden the current knowledge and database, and by supporting analytical research to facilitate systematic validation and model enhancement of the existing pool scrubbing codes. The project consortium includes more than 30 organisations from 15 countries involving research institutes, universities, TSOs, and industry. For IPRESCA activities, partners join the project with in-kind contributions. IPRESCA operates under NUGENIA Technical Area 2/SARNET (Severe Accident) - Sub Technical Area 2.4 (Source-term). The present paper provides an introduction and overview of the IPRESCA project, including its objectives, organizational structure and the main outcomes of completed activities. Furthermore, key activities currently ongoing or planned in the project framework are also discussed.

Fluids (Internet), 6(2), p.80_1 - 80_17, 2021/02

Many thermohydraulic issues about the safety of light water reactors are related to complicated two-phase flow phenomena. In these phenomena, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis using the volume of fluid (VOF) method causes numerical diffusion generated by the first-order upwind scheme used in the convection term of the volume fraction equation. Thus, in this study, we focused on an interface compression (IC) method for such a VOF approach; this technique prevents numerical diffusion issues and maintains boundedness and conservation with negative diffusion. First, on a sufficiently high mesh resolution and without the IC method, the validation process was considered by comparing the amplitude growth of the interfacial wave between a two-dimensional gas sheet and a quiescent liquid using the linear theory. The disturbance growth rates were consistent with the linear theory, and the validation process was considered appropriate. Then, this validation process confirmed the effects of the IC method on numerical diffusion, and we derived the optimum value of the IC coefficient, which is the parameter that controls the numerical diffusion.

Proceedings of 2019 International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP 2019) (Internet), 8 Pages, 2019/05

In the fast breeder reactor prototype Monju, reaction rate distributions were measured by using activation foils during its system startup test. Reliability and usefulness of the measurements as a validation experiment were investigated through a comparison with a calculation using the latest neutronics design methodology developed in JAEA. As a basic calculation, a three-dimensional diffusion calculation with triangular meshes was performed using effective cross sections generated by a one-dimensional heterogeneous lattice model with the JENDL-4.0 nuclear data library. Best-estimate values of reaction rates were evaluated by considering correction factors such as transport correction factors, fine and ultra-fine energy group correction factors, anisotropic diffusion coefficient correction factors and subassembly heterogeneous factors. Through the comparison, it was confirmed that the both of experimental values and analysis results were agreed well in the core region.

Two phase flows in large-diameter channels are important to efficiently and safely transfer mass and energy in a wide variety of applications including nuclear power plants. Two-phase flows in vertical large-diameter channels, however, show much more complex multi-dimensional nature than those in small diameter channels. Various constitutive equations are required to mathematically close the model to predict two-phase flows with two-fluid model. Validations of the constitutive equations require extensive experiment effort. This paper summarizes the recent experimental studies on two-phase flows in vertical large-diameter channels, which includes measuring technique and available databases. Then, a comprehensive review of constitutive equations is provided covering flow regime transition criteria, drift-flux correlations, interfacial area concentration correlations and one- and two-group interfacial area transport equation(s), with discussions on typical characteristics of large-diameter channel flows. Recent 1D numerical simulations of large-diameter channel flows is reviewed too. Finally, future research directions are suggested.

Among twelve FCI cases conducted in the OECD/NEA/CSNI/SERENA2 test series using two facilities, six steam explosion cases, five from TROI and one from KROTOS, were analyzed by JASMINE V.3. Major model parameters were categorized into "focused zone", a core part of interest, and "peripheral zone", the initial and boundary conditions given intentionally for each test case. For the former, base values established through past validation studies of JASMINE V.3 were applied. The code was modified to implement the measured distribution of entrained droplet size acquired in TROI-VISU. For the latter, melt release histories were given as a combination of time tables of jet diameter and release velocity that were estimated based on image data and transit timing data of the melt leading edge. The base values were shown to predict impulse responses of SERENA2 systematically with a reasonable error band. A statistical analysis based on the LHS method was performed. Uncertainty ranges were given based on measurement errors and past validation studies in the JASMINE development. Underlying mechanisms causing apparent differences in the mechanical energy conversion ratio between two facilities were studied from the view point of breakup length and trigger timing.

Proceedings of 2017 International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP 2017) (CD-ROM), 10 Pages, 2017/04

Detailed model verification & validation (V&V) and uncertainty quantification (UQ) procedure for our deterministic neutronics design methodology including the nuclear library JENDL-4.0 for next generation fast reactors was put into shape based on a guideline for reliability assessment of simulations published in 2016 by the Atomic Energy Society of Japan. The verification process of the methodology was concretized to compare the results predicted by the methodology with those by a continuous-energy Monte Carlo code, MVP with their precise geometry models. Also, the validation process was materialized to compare the results by the methodology with a fast reactor experimental database developed by Japan Atomic Energy Agency. For the UQ of the results by the methodology, the total value of the uncertainty was classified into three factors: (1) Uncertainty due to analysis models, (2) Uncertainty due to nuclear data, and (3) Other uncertainty due to the differences between analysis models and real reactor conditions related to the reactor conditions such as fuel compositions, geometry and temperature. The procedure to evaluate the uncertainty due to analysis models and uncertainty due to nuclear data was established.
