  • Determination of the Activity of Bottom Slag and Deposits on the Pool
           Walls of the Mr Reactor
    • Abstract: The MR multicircuit research reactor is being dismantled at the National Research Center Kurchatov Institute. During the disassembly process, the experimental circuits and working channels were moved from the reactor’s swimming pool into the storage pool. A spectrometric study of the bottom slag and deposits on the walls of the reactor’s swimming and storage pools was conducted. The complex α-, β-, and γ-spectrometric studies showed that the specific activity of the bottom slag and deposits on the walls of the MR pools is significantly higher than that of the water. In terms of these activity values, the slag and wall deposits can be classed as high-level wastes.

  • Multicomponent Separation Efficiency of an Optimal Cascade with Prescribed
           Target Isotope Concentration
    • Abstract: The particularities of optimization of cascades for the separation of multicomponent mixtures of isotopes according to the criterion of minimum total feed flow of the steps are examined. It is shown on the basis of a computational experiment that optimal cascades have high efficiency indices, which is expressed in the fact that the efficiency and separative power utilization indices are close to 100%. These cascades can be calculated for any concentration of the target isotope. They are mixing cascades with respect to the absolute and relative concentration of the components. However, in most cases it is possible to find a close to optimal R cascade which will differ little in terms of the total flow and concentration of all components.

  • Radioactive Contamination of Spent Reactor Graphite
    • Abstract: The radioactive contamination of the spent graphite of uranium-graphite reactors is analyzed. The formation of the radioactive contamination during irradiation for 30–35 years is described. The contamination of graphite samples by radionuclides, including the products of activation of impurities and fission products, and by actinides is examined for three commercial uranium-graphite reactors at the Siberian Chemical Combine, the AM-1 reactor at the Physics and Power Engineering Institute, and the thermal column of the IRT reactor at the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute. It is concluded that 14C makes the main contribution to the activity of the graphite. The mass of the radionuclides in the bricks of the I-1, EI-2, and ADE-3 reactors at the Siberian Chemical Combine is presented. Some questions concerning the handling of the spent graphite are examined.

  • Unconventional Methods of Radiological Environmental Monitoring and
           Earthquake Prediction
    • Abstract: Methods of radiological monitoring of the environment that can be used on objects utilizing atomic energy, including NPP, are examined. The methods are based on the indications of sensors measuring the dose rate and the spectral characteristics of photon radiation. The sensors can be placed in the opening of a vent stack as well as on unmanned radio-controlled aircraft and underwater apparatus. Radiological monitoring is accomplished in real-time by transmitting information along a radio channel to the pilot’s and dosimetrist’s consoles. A method of remote radiological monitoring where the diagnostics apparatus is a radar station operating in a definite wavelength range is briefly described. The use of cryogenic technologies for recycling radioactive inert gases discharged into the atmosphere is briefly described.

  • Analysis of the Effect of Different Types of Errors on the Accuracy of
           Calculations of the Number of Reactions in Individual Volumes of the Core
           of a Water Cooled and Moderated Power Reactor
    • Abstract: A method and numerical algorithm for evaluating the computational errors in calculating the number of fission rates in small individual volumes of a reactor core, viz., fuel element, group of fuel elements, fuel assemblies, are presented. The standard error was determined by a combination of the methods of the statistical theory of errors and linear perturbation theory. An algorithm developed for calculating the value function, sensitivity coefficients, and errors of functionals which is based on the use of the MCCG3D, TRIFON, and ERRORJ software is described. The standard error, due to, for example, the relative error ~1% (over the volume of a fuel element) in the microscopic fission and total cross section, of the computed fission rate in the most stressed fuel element in fuel assembly No. 10 PWR (ALMARAZ II, Spain), is evaluated as an example. The standard error of the fission reactions in this case is εƒ,235U = 5.573·10–3, εƒ,239Pu = 1.193·10–3, i.e., the total error is ~0.67%. For other isotopes, it is hundredths of a percent, i.e., approximately equal to its computational error. For the technological error ±1.2% of the density of the loaded PWR uranium-dioxide fuel, the computed uncertainty in the number of fissions is ±0.93%, and for the uncertainty ±0.5% in the fuel enrichment the error in the number fissions will be ±1.5%.

  • Evaluation of Environmental Damage Due to Nuclear Power
    • Abstract: A methodology is presented for evaluating on the basis of the criterion of maintaining a healthy environment the environmental damage due to the exposure of biota to radiation. The damage is determined in accordance with the regulatory and procedural documents pertaining to environmental protection above the environmentally safe dose rate of chronic radiation exposure of representative forms of fauna (1 mGy/day) and flora (10 mGy/day). A damage evaluation for a hypothetical scenario of elevated radiation exposure of the biota near a radiological object is presented. The methodology developed can be used to validate the classing of radioactive wastes as special and to plan measures for protecting the environment when using atomic energy.

  • Hydrogen Behavior in Chromium-Coated Zirconium Alloy E-110 During
           Deposition in a Gas Discharge
    • Abstract: The regularities and mechanisms of the processes characterizing the behavior of hydrogen in the zirconium alloy E-110 with a chromium coating were studied at different stages of the experiment: during irradiation of the substrate by ions from argon plasma and in the process of coating deposition. After ion bombardment of the zirconium, the hydrogen was retained in the interior and in the defects of the surface layer of the zirconium, and hydrogen trapping decreased with increasing residual gas pressure during irradiation in the range 1.3–30 mPa. The hydrogen atoms trapped during deposition of the chromium coating were retained primarily in the zirconium. As the pressure of the deuterium added to the residual gas during coating deposition increased, the trapping of deuterium atoms increased in the zirconium and remained unchanged in the chromium coating. Hydrogen atoms were observed to transition from the interior of the zirconium to the trapping centers in the oxide layer, which was accompanied by a reduction of the hydrogen desorption temperature and observed during ion irradiation of the substrate and coating deposition in a low vacuum.

  • Results of Tests of VVER Fuel-Element Cladding Under the Conditions of the
           First Stage of LOCA
    • Abstract: A procedure is developed for performing on the PARAMETR stand integrated tests on VVER fuel-element simulators under conditions of the first stage of LOCA. The computational and methodological underpinnings of the experiments make it possible to conduct investigations under pre-determined conditions. The experiments showed the effect of the combinations of temperature-force conditions (factors) of the first stage of the accident on the thermomechanical behavior of fuel-element cladding made of E-110 alloy. The cladding material undergoes a martensite transformation with grain growth. Hardening of the experimental cladding material with a significant reduction of plasticity is noted. The results of the investigations can be used to predict the thermomechanical and corrosion behavior of cladding at the first and second stages of the accident as well as for adjusting the number of depressurized fuel elements in the accident.

  • Application of the Gauss–Seidel Iteration Process in the Diagonal
           Element Isolation Method for Thermal Radiation Transfer Problems
    • Abstract: The application of the Gauss–Seidel diagonal element isolation method is examined for obtaining an iterative solution of the system of thermal-radiation transfer equations for absorbing, radiating, and scattering media. Calculations of a test problem are preformed for the example of the correction form of the nonlinear variant of the method for the finite-difference WDD scheme in planar geometry. The method can also be used for modeling the transfer of γ-rays and neutrons.

  • Cross-Border Transport During Small Discharges of Radioactive Substances
           into the Atmosphere
    • Abstract: The results of modeling of cross-border transport during small discharges of radioactive substances into the atmosphere are presented. The modeling is performed for the example of the April 2013 radiation incident in Elektrostal. It is shown that aerosol particles containing 137Cs did not significantly affect the radiation conditions on the territory of the European part of our country and the Scandinavian countries.

  • Centrifugal Extractors with Magnetic Coupling for Radiochemical and
           Chemical Production
    • Abstract: Variants of designs of hermetic centrifugal extractors whose drive contains a cylindrical magnetic coupling are presented. A frequency converter (inverter) with the standard torque-limiting function was used for reliable startup of centrifugal extractors with an asynchronous electric motor. The proposed centrifugal extractors have been tested successfully on a production stand. No failures attributable to the magnetic coupling were recorded.

  • Prediction of Self-Decontamination of Contaminated Territory Near the
           Fukushima-1 NPP (Japan)
    • Abstract: A method is proposed for analyzing and evaluating the dynamics of self-decontamination of the region of the Fukushima-1 NPP contaminated by radioactive substances. The activity flux into the sea and average self-decontamination time of the territory due to decay and wash-off of the radionuclides 137Cs and 134Cs in the region of the NPP are obtained. The wash-off time constant of 137Cs for the contaminated territory is determined from the experimental data. It is significantly greater than for the basins of the other rivers studied. This is due to the hydrological particularities of the rivers in Japan. It is shown that the maximum dose rate in the region of contamination will decrease to the background level in approximately 200 years. It is determined that the 137Cs concentration in suspension does not depend on the water flow rate in the river; the 137Cs flux is proportional to this flow rate, including in floods.

  • Radionuclide Ratios in Precipitation on the Territory of Belarus After the
           Chernobyl Accident: Calculation from Gamma-Spectrometric Measurements on
           Soil in May–July 1986
    • Abstract: The correlations between the fallout density and ratio of radionuclides in different regions of Belarus after the accident at the Chernobyl NPP are investigated using data obtained by means of gamma-spectrometric measurements performed on soil in May–July 1986. It is shown that the isotopes of cesium and/or ruthenium are most suitable for reconstructing the activity of 131I in the fallout. Charts showing the isolines of the activity ratios 131I/137Cs and 134Cs/137Cs in the fallout are constructed. The geometric averages obtained for the log-normal distribution of the ratios 134Cs/137Cs and 131I/137Cs in terms of May 10, 1986 equal 0.47 and 5.4, respectively. The distribution of the activity ratio 131I/137Cs in the fallout and the correlation coefficients show that on the whole there is no consistent interrelation between the fallout indices of these radionuclides over the territory.

  • Production of Medical 99 Mo and Molybdenum-Technetium Generators at the
           karpov Research Institute of Physical Chemistry
    • Abstract: This article is devoted to the development of the production of 99Mo used in nuclear medicine. The stages in the development of the production of 99Mo and molybdenum-technetium generators are shown. Production has increased several-fold over the period 2009–2013 and meets the demand of domestic nuclear medicine. The problem of recycling the uranium from an irradiated target after 99Mo is extracted from the target is important and strongly influences the price of 99Mo. A technology for reprocessing uranium-containing tailings with the uranium obtained being returned into the 99Mo production cycle has been developed at the Scientific-Research Institute for Physical Chemistry. This has eliminated the need to purchase expensive high-enrichment uranium for targets and has made it possible to use the uranium remaining from the reprocessing of irradiated targets.

  • Prospects for Using Nitride Fuel in Fast Reactors with a Closed Nuclear
           Fuel Cycle
    • Abstract: The present status of research on dense nitride fuel for liquid-metal cooled fast reactors is examined. It is noted that within the framework of project Proryv nitride fuel is to be used in reactors with sodium (BN-1200) as well as lead coolant (BREST). Carbothermal synthesis of nitride from oxide powders has been chosen to fabricate the experimental fuel elements. Several experimental assemblies with mixed uranium-plutonium nitride fuel have been fabricated for tests in BOR-60 and BN-600. It is shown that the existing global experience in studying nitride fuel is insufficient for validating such fuel for use in BN-1200 and BREST. A complex program for computational-experimental validation of fuel elements is being implemented for validating the serviceability of fuel elements.

  • Optimization of a Cascade by Partial Flow Sections with Prescribed Target
    • Abstract: The problem of calculating a cascade with several feed flows is examined. Relations are proposed for calculating a cascade by partial-flow sections. A procedure is developed for optimizing the parameters of a cascade for the separation of a multicomponent mixture of isotopes. Minimization of the total flow with a prescribed target component concentration at the waste and product of the cascade is taken as the criterion of optimization. A computational experiment is performed. A characteristic example of the optimization of a three-flow cascade is presented.
