Since the hardness of fuel debris containing boride from B$$_{4}$$C pellet in control rod is estimated to be two times higher as that of oxide, such as UO$$_{2}$$ and ZrO$$_{2}$$, distribution of such boride in the fuel debris formed in the Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Plants may affect the process of debris cutting and removal. The high neutron absorption of boron may affect the possibility of re-criticality during the process of debris removal. Therefore, boride distribution in fuel debris is regarded as an important issue to be addressed. However, boron tends to have difficult in quantification with conventionally applied methods like EPMA and XPS. In this study, accelerator-driven neutron-imaging system was applied. Since boron is the material for neutron absorption, its sensitivity in terms of neutron penetration through specimens is concerned. To adjust neutron attenuation of a specimen to suit a particular measurement by selecting the neutron energy range, we focused on the energy resolved neutron imaging system RADEN, which utilizes wide energy range from meV to keV. Development of a method to visualize boron distribution using energy-resolved neutrons has been started. In this presentation the authors show the status of the development of a method utilizing energy-resolved neutrons and provide some outcome from its application to the Core Material Melting and Relocation (CMMR)-0 and -2 specimens.

ホウ素中性子捕捉療法(BNCT)は難治性がんの治療に有効な放射線療法である。BNCTでは、中性子照射時間や中性子被曝量のコントロールのために、全血試料中の$$^{10}$$B濃度の正確な定量が不可欠である。我々は荷電粒子誘起放射化分析法(CPAA)を全血試料中$$^{10}$$B濃度の非破壊・精密測定に適用した。実験は原子力機構(JAEA)タンデム加速器にて8MeVの陽子ビームを用いて実施した。$$^{10}$$B(p,$$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Be反応で生成する$$^{7}$$Beからの478keV $$gamma$$線を用いて$$^{10}$$Bを定量した。また血液中の鉄との核反応で生成する$$^{56}$$Coの$$gamma$$線を用いて$$gamma$$線強度を規格化した。実験の結果、開発したCPAA法は血液中の$$^{10}$$B濃度の定量に適用できることが明らかとなった。


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.

Boron carbide is used as a neutron-absorbing material in Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F), producing borides that are twice as hard as oxides (such as UO$$_{2}$$ and ZrO$$_{2}$$). The high neutron absorption of boron affects the evaluation of re-criticality during the process of debris retrieval. Therefore, it is important not only to determine the presence of boron but also to investigate the distribution of boron inside the material in a non-destructive manner during decommissioning. To address the uncertainties in the core material relocation behavior of boiling water reactor (BWR) during a severe accident (SA), solidified melt specimens of a simulated fuel assembly were prepared by plasma heating. If core material melting and relocation (CMMR) specimens can be used to estimate the B distribution in 1F Unit-3, that will provide valuable information in the decommissioning of 1F. To address this, the authors focused on the energy-resolved neutron imaging system, RADEN, which utilizes a wide energy range, from meV to keV. This is an innovative three-dimensional analysis technology for boride distribution that affects the evaluation of hardness and re-criticality. In the calibration standard samples (Zr$$_{x}$$B$$_{1-x}$$ and Fe$$_{x}$$B$$_{1-x}$$), there was a good correlation between boron concentration and the energy-dependence of the cross sections of cold and epi-thermal neutrons. In the CMMR specimens, boron distribution was confirmed from the contrast difference between cold and epi-thermal neutrons. In the future, the results of calibration standard samples will be applied to the results of CMMR specimens. With this method, three-dimensional boron distribution will be measured, and the understanding of boride distribution 1F Unit-3 will be improved, which may be reflected in an improved SA code.

Mg$$_{2}$$Si is a potential thermoelectric (TE) material that can directly convert waste energy into electricity. In expectation of improving its TE performance by increasing electron carrier concentration, the element boron (B) is doped in Mg$$_{2}$$Si single crystals (SCs). Their detailed crystal structures are definitely determined by using white neutron holography and single-crystal X-ray diffraction (SC-XRD) measurements. The white neutron holography measurement proves that the doped B atom successfully substitutes for the Mg site. The SC-XRD measurement confirms the B-doping site and also reveals the presence of the defect of Si vacancy (VSi) in the B-doped Mg$$_{2}$$Si SCs. Regarding TE properties, the electrical conductivity, $$sigma$$, and the Seebeck coefficient, S, decreases and increases, respectively, due to the decrease in the electron carrier concentration, contrary to the expectation. The power factor of the B-doped Mg$$_{2}$$Si SCs evaluated from $$sigma$$ and S does not increase but rather decreases by the B-doping.

This paper describes evaluation results of thermophysical properties of stainless steel (SS) containing 5 mass% boron carbide (B$$_{4}$$C) in its solid phase. First, the authors have synthesized SS-B$$_{4}$$C samples with emphasis on 5 mass%-B$$_{4}$$C and SS using a hot press method and then evaluated its homogeneity in several ways such as chemical composition analysis, metallographic structure observation, and micro X-ray diffraction (XRD). This study also evaluated the density, specific heat and thermal conductivity of the SS-B$$_{4}$$C sample and found that the density becomes lower and the temperature dependence of the density decreased as the temperature rose compared to that of grade type 316L stainless steel (SS316L) used as a reactor material. The specific heat became slightly higher than that of SS316L and showed similar temperature dependence up to 1073 K. Unexpectedly, the thermal conductivity became lower than that of SS316L and showed similar temperature dependence up to 1273 K.

In a core disruptive accident scenario, boron carbide (B$$_{4}$$C) in control-rod will be predicted to react with stainless steel (SS) as structural material. Produced eutectic material of SS-B$$_{4}$$C is assumed to relocate widely in the core. To add a function of evaluating this liquefaction and relocation behavior to CDA analysis codes, it is indispensable to maintain the thermophysical properties database of SS-B$$_{4}$$C. In this report, density and specific heat of SS-7mass%B$$_{4}$$C in a solid state were obtained, and compared them with those of SS-5mass%B$$_{4}$$C obtained so far and literature value of SS. It is found that the density decreased while the specific heat increased, as B$$_{4}$$C concentration in the austenitic stainless steel increased. By addition of 7mass%-B$$_{4}$$C to 316L SS, the density was decreased by approximately 7% at 294K. On the other hand, specific heat was increased by approximately 21% at 294K.

Proceedings of 2018 International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants (ICAPP 2018) (CD-ROM), p.1007 - 1013, 2018/04

This study describes estimation results of thermophysical properties of stainless steel containing 5mass% boron carbide (5mass%B$$_{4}$$C-SS) in the solid state. 5mass%B$$_{4}$$C-SS eutectic sample was synthesized using a hot press method. Homogeneity of the sample was evaluated by chemical composition analysis, metal structure observation, and micro X-ray diffraction (XRD). Specific gravity and specific heat were evaluated up to 1000$$^{circ}$$C. These measurements proved that the specific gravity in our sample was lowered and the temperature dependence of the specific gravity, along with the elevation of temperature, became gradual compared to that of grade type 316L stainless steel (SUS316L) used as a reactor material by addition of B$$_{4}$$C. The specific heat became slightly higher than that of SUS316L by addition of B$$_{4}$$C and showed similar temperature dependence up to 800$$^{circ}$$C.

福島第一原子力発電所(1F)からの燃料デブリ中のホウ素(B)の分布や含有量に係る情報は、取出し時の機械的特性や取出し後の未臨界を担保の検討を行う上で重要な情報と考えられる。本発表では、仏国CEAとの協力のもと、圧力容器内燃料デブリ中のBの挙動を、解析的および実験的に推定した結果について概要を報告する。2号機に対して想定される事故進展シナリオから、材料組成、温度、および酸化量の変遷を推定し、これらの情報を入力とする熱力学計算により、Bの化学形の推定を行った。計算に用いた熱力学データベース(NUCLEA)ではB-O系の実験データが不足しており、これにより酸素濃度が低い条件での制御棒(B-C-Fe-O系)の溶融・凝固過程の計算結果には大きな不確かさを含むと考えられる。不確かさを低減し計算結果の妥当性を検証するため、Fe, B$$_{4}$$C, B$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$を高温で溶融・混合させる小規模試験を実施し、凝固後の試料の相状態を分析した。その結果、凝固後の相が金属相(Feリッチな相)と酸化物相(BとOがリッチな相)に分かれ、Fe, Bがそれぞれの相に一定の割合で分配されることが分かった。このような元素の分配挙動は、酸素ポテンシャルを適切に設定した条件で、NUCLEAデータベースによる熱力学計算結果により説明できることが分かった。

平衡蒸気圧データは、蒸気種だけでなく凝縮相の熱力学的性質を調べる際にも利用されているが、蒸気圧データについては、2桁あるいはそれ以上の違いがあることは珍しいことではない。本報告では、蒸気圧測定における信頼性向上のために、第二法則,第三法則処理と呼ばれる手法を用いた新しいデータ解析の手法を提案している。この手法をセシウムメタボレート, CsBO$$_{2}$$や銀の蒸気圧測定データに対して適用した結果、信頼性の高い蒸気圧データの選定につながることが分かった。この新しい熱力学的手法では、測定データの取り扱いにおいて、特別なテクニックや経験を必要とせず、測定手法に関係なく汎用性もあることから蒸気圧測定における信頼性向上のための手法として役に立つと考えられる。
