Distance for fragmentation of a simulated molten-core material discharged into a sodium pool

Matsuba, Kenichi; Isozaki, Mikio; Kamiyama, Kenji; Tobita, Yoshiharu

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 53(5), p.707 - 712, 2016/05

 Times Cited Count:9 Percentile:75.69(Nuclear Science & Technology)

In order to develop an evaluation method of the distance for fragmentation of molten core material discharged into the sodium plenum, a sodium experiment with visual observation was conducted using an X-ray imaging system. In the current experiments, 0.9 kg of molten aluminum (initial temperature: around 1473 K) was discharged into a sodium pool (initial temperature: 673 K) through a nozzle (inner diameter: 20 mm). Based on the experimental results, the distance for fragmentation of the liquid column was estimated to be 100 mm in the experiments. Through the sodium experiment, useful knowledge was obtained for the future development of an evaluation method of the distance for fragmentation of molten core material. As a next step, sodium experiments using higher-density molten materials will be conducted to enrich the experimental knowledge. Besides, a new semi-empirical correlation will be developed to evaluate more appropriately the distance for fragmentation under CDA conditions.

("3D"+"2D+Time") visualization of vapor/water in the reactor observed by neutron beam

Kureta, Masatoshi

VizJournal, (11), 5 Pages, 2004/06

This paper explains the neutron radiography thermal-hydraulic measurement technique, especialy visualization technique, which was developed at Japan Atomic Energry Research Institute. Observation of large and fine-mesh data obtained by the new measurement technology is important from a research point of view. We developed the advanced visualization software which puts into practice effective observation by using new visualization methods, and we made the vizualization of phenomena possible by using VR and/or animation displays etc. by this system. Especially in this paper, the visualization techniques which were used in a prize-winning work of the "Visual Sience Festa 2003" by NIKKEI SCIENCE as easy to read for a general reader as possible by using many figures and movies.
