A Large-scale aerodynamics study on bicycle racing

Aoki, Takayuki*; Hasegawa, Yuta

Jidosha Gijutsu, 74(4), p.18 - 23, 2020/04

Aerodynamics studies for bicycle racings have been carried out by using a CFD simulation based on LES model. For running of alone cyclist and 2-4 cyclists groups, the computational drags are in good agreement with the wind-tunnel experiments. Different shapes of group running and competing two teams are studied. A large-scale computation for a group of 72 cyclists has been performed by using 2.23 billion meshes on a GPU supercomputer.

To investigate the effective separation of actinides (Ans) from lanthanides (Lns), single-stage batch extraction experiments were performed with a novel extractant, tetradodecyl-1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-diamide (TDdPTDA) with various diluents such as 3-nitrobenzotrifluoride (F-3), nitrobenzene, and ${it n}$-dodecane for Am, Cm, and Lns. The extraction kinetics with TDdPTDA was rapid enough to perform the actual extraction flow sheet. The slopes of the distribution ratio versus TDdPTDA concentration and the distribution ratio versus nitric acid concentration were similar for F-3 and nitrobenzene systems but different from ${it n}$-dodecane system. These differences were attributed to the characteristics of the diluents. This study reveals high distribution ratios of Am (${it D}$ $$_{Am}$$) and Cm (${it D}$ $$_{Cm}$$) for TDdPTDA, with the high separation factors (${it SF}$s) of Am from Lns enough for their separation.

JAEA/CLADS had been conducting the Center of World Intelligence Project for Nuclear Science/Technology and Human Resource Development (hereafter referred to "the Project") in FY2018. The Project aims to contribute to solving problems in nuclear energy field represented by the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. For this purpose, intelligence was collected from all over the world, and basic research and human resource development were promoted by closely integrating/collaborating knowledge and experiences in various fields beyond the barrier of conventional organizations and research fields. Among the adopted proposals in FY2018, this report summarizes the research results of the "Establishment of Measurement System for Radiation-dependent Mutation in Organ Tissue Cells Derived from Human iPS Cells". The purpose of the present study is to establish an experimental system to evaluate the difference in radiation-dependent mutation among tissues. In previous studies, unified evaluation of the difference in radiation-dependent mutation among tissues has been difficult because the mutation rate among tissues had been evaluated using cell lines taken from different individuals. Recent biotechnological innovation in stem cell field represented by iPS cells has become enable to induce differentiation of tissue cells from a single cell. In the present study, Tokyo Institute of Technology produce tissue cells in nervous, dermal, blood and circulatory systems by unifying these new technologies. Using these tissue cells, we measure the mutation rate for each tissue after the radiation exposure, and aim to establish an experimental system to evaluate the difference in mutation depending on tissues by constructing a mathematical model.

Hadronic Paschen-Back effect in charmonium

Iwasaki, Sachio; Oka, Makoto; Suzuki, Kei*; Yoshida, Tetsuya*

AIP Conference Proceedings 2130, p.050001_1 - 050001_8, 2019/07

 Times Cited Count:0 Percentile:100

We find a novel phenomenon induced by the interplay between a strong magnetic field and finite orbital angular momenta in hadronic systems, which is analogous to the Paschen-Back effect observed in the field of atomic physics. This effect allows the wave functions to drastically deform. We discuss anisotropic decay from the deformation as a possibility to measure the strength of the magnetic field in heavy-ion collision at LHC, RHIC and SPS, which has not experimentally been measured. As an example we investigate charmonia with finite orbital angular momentum in a strong magnetic field. We calculate the mass spectra and mixing rate. To obtain anisotropic wave functions, we apply the cylindrical Gaussian expansion method, where the Gaussian bases to expand the wave functions have different widths along transverse and longitudinal directions in the cylindrical coordinate.

Oka, Makoto; Maeda, Saori*; Liu, Y.-R.*

International Journal of Modern Physics; Conference Series (Internet), 49, p.1960004_1 - 1960004_8, 2019/07

The charmed dibaryon resonances are given by a model Hamiltonian with the quark-model based short-range interaction and the long-range meson-exchange interactions. Sharp resonances states below the $$Sigma_{c}$$-$$N$$ and $$Sigma_{c}^{*}$$-$$N$$ thresholds are predicted.

Accurate data of $$gamma$$-ray emission probabilities are frequently needed when one quantitatively determines the amount of isotope by $$gamma$$-ray measurements or obtains neutron capture cross-sections using them. Americium-243, one of the most important minor actinides, produces $$^{244}$$Am after neutron capture. The 744-keV $$gamma$$-ray decaying from the ground state of $$^{244}$$Am has a relatively large $$gamma$$-ray emission probability c.a. 66%, however, its uncertainty is as large as 29%. The uncertainty of the $$gamma$$-ray emission probability leads to a major factor of the systematic uncertainty on determining an amount of isotope, and therefore the $$gamma$$-ray emission probability was measured by using an activation method and an examined level structure of $$^{244}$$Cm. In this study, the emission probability of 744-keV $$gamma$$ ray was derived as 66.5$$pm$$1.1%, and its uncertainty was improved from 29% to 2%.

Further signatures to support the tetraquark mixing framework for the two light-meson nonets

Kim, H.*; Kim, K. S.*; Cheoun, M.-K.*; Jido, Daisuke*; Oka, Makoto

We investigate additional signatures to support the tetraquark mixing framework that has been recently proposed as a possible structure for the two nonets. We reexamine the mass ordering generated from the tetraquark nonets and show that this mass ordering is satisfied by the two nonets although the ordering in the heavy nonet is marginal. The marginal mass ordering can be regarded as another signature for tetraquarks because it can be explained partially by the hyperfine masses calculated from the tetraquark mixing framework. As a peculiar signature distinguished from the other approaches, we investigate the fall-apart coupling strengths into two vector mesons from our tetraquarks. Coupling strengths into the two-vector modes are found to enhance strongly in the heavy nonet while they are suppressed in the light nonet. The coupling ratios are found to be huge. This trend in the two-vector modes can provide another testing ground for the tetraquark mixing framework. Some experimental evidence related to the phenomena is discussed particularly from the resonances belonging to the heavy nonet.

Resonance states in the $$Y_cN$$ potential model

Physical Review C, 98(3), p.035203_1 - 035203_9, 2018/09

We calculate two-body $$J^{pi}=0^{+}, 1^{+}$$, and $$J^{pi}=2^{+}$$ resonance states of $$Y_{c}$$ ($$= Lambda_{c}$$, $$Sigma_{c}$$, or $$Sigma_{c}^{*}$$) and $$N$$ using the complex scaling method. We employ the $$Y_{c}N$$-CTNN potentials, which were proposed in our previous study, and obtain four resonances near $$Sigma_{c}N$$ and $$Sigma_{c}^{*}N$$ thresholds. From the analysis by the binding energies of partial channel systems, we conclude that these resonance states are Feshbach resonances. We compare the results with the $$Y_{c}N$$ resonance states in the heavy quark limit, where the $$Sigma_{c}N$$ and $$Sigma_{c}^{*}N$$ thresholds are degenerate, and find that they form two pairs of the heavy-quark doublets in agreement with the heavy quark spin symmetry.

We nonperturbatively calculate the wave-function renormalization in the two-dimensional $$O$$(3) sigma model. It is evaluated in a box with a finite spatial extent. We determine the anomalous dimension in the finite-volume scheme through an analysis of the step-scaling function. Results are compared with a perturbative evaluation, and reasonable behavior is observed.

Charmonium ground and excited states at finite temperature from complex Borel sum rules

Charmonium spectral functions in vector and pseudoscalar channels at finite temperature are investigated through the complex Borel sum rules and the maximum entropy method. Our approach enables us to extract the peaks corresponding to the excited charmonia, as well as those of the ground states, which has never been achieved in usual QCD sum rule analyses. We show the spectral functions in vacuum and their thermal modification around the critical temperature, which leads to the almost simultaneous melting (or peak disappearance) of the ground and excited states.

Flavor-singlet hidden charm pentaquark

One type of hidden charm pentaquark $$P_{cs}$$ with quark content $$cbar c uds$$ in light-flavor singlet state is studied in the quark model. This state is analogous to the $$P_c$$ with $$cbar c uud$$ in light-flavor octet, which was observed in LHC in 2015. Considering various combinations of color, spin, and light flavor as internal quantum numbers in $$P_{cs}$$, we investigate the mass ordering of the $$P_{cs}$$'s by adopting both the one-gluon exchange interaction and the instanton-induced interaction in the quark model. The most stable configuration of $$P_{cs}$$ is identified to be total spin 1/2 in which the $$cbar c$$ is combined to be color octet and spin 1, while the uds cluster is in a color octet state. The other color octet configurations, the total spin $$1/2$$ state with the $$cbar c$$ spin 0, and the state with total spin $$3/2$$ and $$cbar c$$ spin 1, are found as excited states. We also discuss possible decay modes of these hidden charm pentaquarks.

The chemical behaviors of lead (Pb) based coolants in the air ingress accident of fast reactors were investigated by means of the thermodynamic considerations and the static oxidation experiments for Pb alloys at various chemical compositions. The results of the static oxidation tests for lead-bismuth (Pb-Bi) alloys indicated that Pb was depleted from the alloy due to the preferential formation of PbO in air at 773K. Pb-Bi oxide and Bi$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ were formed after the enrichment of Bi in the alloys due to the Pb depletion. The oxidation rates of the alloys were much larger than that of the steels, and became larger with higher Pb concentration in the alloys. The compatibility of Pb-Bi alloys with stainless steel was worse when the Pb concentration in the alloys became low, since the dissolution type corrosion was promoted by the Bi composition in the alloy. The Pb-Li alloys were oxidized as they formed Li$$_{2}$$PbO$$_{3}$$ and Li$$_{2}$$CO$$_{3}$$. Then, Li was depleted from the alloy.

The ionic conductivity of solid electrolyte may insufficient, and the sensor output signal will deviate from the theoretical one in low temperature. The performance of oxygen sensor with Ag/air reference electrode (RE) and liquid Bi/Bi$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ RE was tested in low-temperature LBE at 300$$sim$$450$$^{circ}$$C and the charge transfer reactions impedance at the electrode-electrolyte interface was analyzed by electrochemical impedance analysis (EIS). After steady state condition, both of the sensors performed well and can be used at 300$$sim$$450$$^{circ}$$C. Bi/Bi/Bi$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ RE has lower impedance than Ag/air RE. Therefore, the response time of the oxygen sensor with Bi/Bi/Bi$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ RE is faster than the oxygen sensor with Ag/air RE in the low-temperature region.

Fission-fragment mass distributions were measured for $$^{237-240}$$U, $$^{239-242}$$Np and $$^{241-244}$$Pu populated in the excitation-energy range from 10 to 60 MeV by multi-nucleon transfer channels in the reaction $$^{18}$$O + $$^{238}$$U at the JAEA tandem facility. Among them, the data for $$^{240}$$U and $$^{240,241,242}$$Np were observed for the first time. It was found that the mass distributions for all the studied nuclides maintain a double-humped shape up to the highest measured energy in contrast to expectations of predominantly symmetric fission due to the washing out of nuclear shell effects. From a comparison with the dynamical calculation based on the fluctuation-dissipation model, this behavior of the mass distributions was unambiguously attributed to the effect of multi-chance fission.
