  • 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.

  • Mathematical Modeling and Computational Analysis of the Neutron-Physical
           Parameters of the IR-8 Reactor with Conversion to Low-Enrichment Uranium
    • Abstract: A comparative computational analysis of the neutron-physical parameters is made for the IR-8 reactor using core fuel assemblies containing fuel based on low-enrichment uranium: IRT-3M (in development), IRT-4M (in use), and IRT-4M-290 (proposed) with increased (to 290 g) 235U content in six-tube fuel assemblies. The neutron-physical parameters for equilibrium loads of a reactor with conversion to different types of low-enrichment uranium fuel are obtained by means of a computational analysis using the MCU-PTR Monte-Carlo code verified for IR-8. The neutron flux density, estimated fuel costs, and neutron irradiation when using these fuel assemblies are presented relative to the IRT-3M operating fuel assemblies with high-enrichment uranium are presented. It is shown that a load 290 g load (increased from 264 g) in the six-tube IRT-4M fuel assemblies is expedient.

  • 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.

  • Effect of Bellows on the Separation of Uranium Isotopes in a Supercritical
           Gas Centrifuge
    • Abstract: The effect of bellows in a supercritical gas centrifuge on the separative power is studied experimentally. It is found that the separative power of a gas centrifuge with bellows placed in the rotor is lower than that of a centrifuge with a smooth rotor and the difference increases with increasing number of bellows in the rotor. It is shown that the reduction of the separative power can be compensated to a large extent by increasing the temperature component of the circulation flow.

The specific activity of radionuclides in metal at which such parts can be used safely in the nuclear industry is evaluated. A methodological approach is proposed for evaluating the maximum admissible specific activity of recycled metal. Examples of calculations showing that it is possible to proceed to the evaluation of the economic efficiency of handling wastes in this manner are presented.

  • 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.

  • Enrichment of Regenerated Uranium with Simultaneous Dilution of
           232–236 U by Raw and Waste Uranium
    • Abstract: A scheme is proposed for a five-flow (three feed, product and waste flows) gas-centrifuge cascade for enriching regenerated uranium simultaneously diluted by natural raw material and waste uranium. Computational experiments show the advantages of such a cascade in terms of the consumption of natural uranium with respect to the previously proposed multiflow cascades. In contrast to previously proposed cascades for enriching regenerated uranium, this cascade makes it possible to vary the consumption of natural uranium in obtaining products of equivalent quality, which makes it possible to seek and pick the optimal way to enrich the regenerated material in order to obtain VVER fuel.

  • Comprehensive Radiometric Investigation of Mr Reactor Pool Water
    • Abstract: The MR multiloop research reactor is now being disassembled at the National Research Center Kurchatov Institute. A complex α-, β- and γ-spectrometric investigation of the water in the reactor’s pool and fuel-storage pool has been conducted. It was found that the main dose-forming radionuclide is 137Cs. 234U, 235U, 236U, 238U, 238Pu, 239–240Pu, and 241Pu have been found in the pool water, which indicates that the fuel matrix is present in its components. A reduction of the water level in the pool by 1 m increases the equivalent dose rate at a distance of 1 m from the edge of the pool by a factor of 2, which can be explained by the contribution of 137Cs settled on the wall of the storage pool. The efficiency with which the walls of the MR reactor’s storage pool are cleaned by a high-pressure jet of water and by mechanical means was investigated. The mechanical method of removing the deposits from the pool walls is most effective.

  • Mathematical Modeling and Computational Determination Using the MCU-PTR
           Code of the Irradiation Conditions for Structural Materials in the Ampoule
           Setups of the IR-8 Reactor
    • Abstract: A large amount of materials science research in which the vertical channels of the core and reflector are used is being conducted in the IR-8 reactor. To develop experimental programs for reactor research it is of fundamental importance to know not only these parameters but also how they change. The present article validates the possibility of using the computational data obtained with the MCU-PTR code to analyze the neutron-physical parameters and determine the conditions of irradiation of the experimental samples. A comparative analysis of the experimental and computational data shows that it is possible to use this method. The method is now used for tracking the operation of the reactor computationally, pre-reactor determination of the conditions of irradiation of the experimental samples, tracking computationally the conditions of irradiation of the experimental samples of the vessel materials used in nuclear-power facilities and other experiments in IR-8.

  • Analysis of the Parameters of the Target Unit of a Molten-Salt Subcritical
           Electronuclear Facility
    • Abstract: A variant of the target unit based on tungsten rods cooled by molten-salt coolant (alkali-metal fluorides) in a subcritical electronuclear facility is examined. The results of calculations of its main parameters are presented: the neutron yield, neutron spectrum on the lateral surface, top and bottom ends of the target, total energy release, specific energy release and induced activity. The calculations are performed using the three codes MCNPX 2.6B, SHIELD and KATRIN-2.5 and the codes ORIHET3 and DCHAIN-SP for calculating the changes in the radioactivity of the main units. The discrepancies in the parameters of the target unit of a subcritical electronuclear facility were determined by calculating the standard deviation factors. Apparently, the uncertainties in the computational results for the differential and integral parameters are due to the nuclear models and libraries in the programs used.

  • Catching RuO 4 on Solid Sorbents
    • Abstract: New kinds of fuel for fast reactors are being developed. Uranium-plutonium nitride fuel has good neutronphysical indices, but there are peculiarities to handling it after irradiation in a reactor. At the stage of dissolution of the irradiated uranium-plutonium nitride fuel in nitric acid, a significant quantity of volatile radioactive fission products, including ruthenium, is released into the gas phase. In the present work, the possibility of catching ruthenium tetroxide on sorbents was evaluated experimentally. The catching of ruthenium tetroxide by granules of pyrolusite, γ-Al2O3, and γ-Al2O3 permeated by a 10% solution of carbamide or nitric acid was investigated. The results can be used in the development of a technology and apparatus for catching volatile product of ruthenium fission.

  • Dewatering of Salt Melts of Radioactive Wastes from NPP by Induction
    • Abstract: An experimental setup for dewatering melts of salts of radioactive wastes has been developed at the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (MIFI). Induction heating of the working chamber with the material being processed and vacuum pumping of water vapor were used. An evaporation rate of free water 11.25 liters/h was achieved in the course of the experiments. Experiments on dewatering of a simulator of a melt of liquid radioactive wastes from NPP with initial moisture content 31.9 wt.% were performed. The content of bound water in the final sample was 5%. There was no free water. The setup can process liquid radioactive wastes in the form of melt and bottom residues in batch and continuous regimes.
