  • Fundamental Principles of the Formation of an Efficient Fuel-Cycle
           Structure for Nuclear Power
    • Authors: V. F. Tsibul’skii; E. A. Andrianova; V. D. Davidenko; E. V. Rodionova; S. V. Tsibul’skii
      Pages: 299 - 304
      Abstract: The growth prospects for nuclear power are examined: impeding and driving forces. The main problem facing nuclear power today is the management of spent fuel and wastes. Eventually, it will become economically inexpedient to store spent fuel; the natural solution is to reprocess spent fuel, extract the fi ssile isotopes, and recycle it in thermal or fast reactors. Since the fast-reactor fraction in the current system is trivial and the situation will remain the same in the near- and medium-term futures, a variant of plutonium recycling in thermal reactors with a different fuel arrangement is examined. It is shown that a heterogeneous fuel arrangement can give a 10-fold reduction of the radiation load in reprocessing enterprises. Different setups are compared in terms of the potential danger presented by spent-fuel reprocessing. The advantages of the thorium fuel cycle are examined from the standpoint of radiation and environmental safety.

      Pages: 305 - 311
      Abstract: The results of a calculation of critical assemblies and an RBMK core using the STEPAN-MPG code are presented. It is shown that the computational results obtained by calculating the surface harmonics are identical to the measurements for critical assemblies and for real states of an RBMK core without the use of adjustable parameters. In addition, the method of surface harmonics makes it possible to perform a fuelelement-wise calculation of the energy release distribution in any RBMK cell by using neutron fl uxes obtained from coarse-grid calculations.

  • Three-Dimensional Neutron-Physical Methodology for Calculating a
           Nuclear-Reactor Cell with Axial Symmetry and Finite Step Along the Axis
    • Authors: T. S. Poveshchenko; N. I. Laletin
      Pages: 312 - 317
      Abstract: A methodology for performing three-dimensional calculations of a cell in a nuclear reactor with axial symmetry and a fi nite step along the axis is presented. It is based on a method developed for reactors with a close VVER-type lattice for solving the three-dimensional neutron-transport equation in a cell by separation of variables. A method of calculating the trial functions used at the level of three-dimensional calculations of reactors with axial symmetry by the method of surface quantities is proposed. The results show that if a zone with a large step along the axis is to be calculated, then the corrections associated with the curvature of the neutron fl ux are signifi cant and must be taken into account at the level of core calculations.

  • Dependence of Control-Rod Efficiency on the Initial Conditions of Rod
    • Authors: E. F. Seleznev; I. S. Chernova
      Pages: 318 - 322
      Abstract: The effectiveness of control rods is measured in a nonstationary regime at minimum reactor power. The measurement algorithm entails a buildup of reactor power caused by lifting of the measured or any other rod followed by its release, which is due to the need to maintain a detector signal above the background level up to the end of the experiment. It is known that some fission neutrons (the prompt neutrons) are created directly during nuclear fission while others are formed from the decay of the precursors of delayed neutrons, which possess a low-energy spectrum or lower average energy. For fast reactors, this can be reflected on the efficiency of the control rods during measurements and during the development of the processes occurring during an accident. This work is devoted to determining the effect of the conditions preceding the movement of control rods on their effectiveness and the discrepancy between the efficiency of the rods realized in practice and the efficiency calculated on the basis of stationary states.

    • Authors: V. A. Vityuk; A. D. Vurim; V. M. Kotov; A. V. Pakhnits
      Pages: 323 - 327
      Abstract: This article is devoted to the development and testing of a new approach to the determination and prediction of the power parameters of tests of model fuel assemblies in the IGR reactor. A method based on the establishment of a relation between the thermophysical and power parameters of fuel assemblies is proposed. The results of experiments performed as part of the preparation of the fuel assemblies for the tests are presented. The power release in fuel assemblies and a relation between the power parameters of IGR and fuel assemblies at different levels of power release in the reactor are determined. The results obtained are used to determine the IGR operating regime in tests with melting of the fuel assemblies.

  • Experimental Investigations of Heat Transfer Upon Sodium Boiling in a
           Model Fuel Assembly for Safety Validation of an Advanced Fast Reactor

      Pages: 328 - 334
      Abstract: A structural concept using a sodium cavity located above the core of a reactor is proposed as a means of preventing accidents resulting in the destruction of core elements. The experimental investigations of heat transfer performed on the AR-1 stand with boiling of sodium in a model fuel assembly of a fast reactor with a sodium cavity above the core in a regime with natural circulation have shown that long-time cooling of fuel assemblies is possible. The data obtained are used to refine the computational model of sodium boiling in fuel assemblies and to verify the COREMELT computational code.

      Abstract: Methods of validating the thermomechanical reliability of the core of water-moderated and -cooled reactors that are used in reactor design practice are reviewed. The factors determining the thermomechanical reliability of the core and the particulars of the calculation of its criteria in using deterministic and statistical methods are examined. The advantages and disadvantages of different statistical approaches to taking account of the computational uncertainties are indicated. The particularities of using different methods for validating the thermomechanical reliability and their role in the reactor design process are colligated.

  • Implementation of the Protection Optimization for Normalization of

      Pages: 342 - 349
      Abstract: The radiation conditions in the dry-storage block for spent nuclear fuel BSKh-3A was characterized by a high dose rate and allowed only brief admission of workers. The plan to normalize the radiation conditions included repeat replacement of workers, whose individual dose limit has been exhausted, and on the whole did not conform to the principle of protection optimization. Analysis of the design and radiation state of BSKh-3A has shown that possibilities for reducing the worker dose do exist. At the stages of current planning and actual performance of the work, it was possible to make changes in the technology used in the work, reduce labor costs, and add and optimize additional protection. As a result, the work was performed in accordance with the radiation safety norms and regulations, worker replacement was not required, and the collective dose was reduced more than 20-fold compared with the nominal level.

  • Environmental Aspects of a Pilot Power Complex in Project Breakthrough
    • Authors: R. M. Aleksakhin; E. V. Spirin; V. M. Solomatin; S. I. Spiridonov
      Abstract: The particularities of the formation of the potential biological danger of actinides and fission products in time and the influence of the migration factor on it are examined. The calculation of the dose characteristics of long-lived radionuclides took account of the effect of internal and external irradiation on humans. The internal irradiation dose was calculated taking account of the transfer of radionuclides from soil into food products. It was found that the actinides, 90Sr and 137C, make the main contribution to the biological danger for 500 years, and are followed by americium and 99Tc from the fission products. The separation of 99% of the americium and technetium (which can be transmuted) from the irradiated fuel is optimal for satisfying the principle of radiation equivalence. The use of nitride fuel in fast reactors requires special attention to isolation of 14C from the environment. It was shown that taking account of the presence of agricultural lands in the action zone of enterprises in the pilot demonstration power complex softens the requirements of admissible carbon emission in the gas phase with absolute satisfaction of the safety requirements for the effect on the general public.

  • Experimental Investigation of Tellurium Corrosion of Nickel-Molybdenum
           Alloys in Molten Lithium-, Beryllium-, and Uranium-Fluoride Salts
    • Authors: V. V. Ignat’ev; A. I. Surenkov; I. P. Gnidoi; V. S. Uglov; S. A. Konakov
      Abstract: The test results on the compatibility of special nickel-molybdenum alloys with a fuel salt with the composition 71LiF–27BeF2–2UF4, containing tellurium additive, at temperature 760–800°C and controlled values of the redox potential, determined by the ratio [U(IV)]/[U(III)] = 30, 60, and 90, are colligated. A comparison of corrosion tests of the alloys with fuel salt with the chosen composition confi rmed the threshold character of the dependence of the intercrystallite corrosion intensity on the ratio [U(IV)]/[U(III)] and melt temperature. The domestic alloy KhN80MTYu is recommended for further study as the main structural material of the reactor loop of a molten salt reactor with the maximum temperature of the fuel salt 750–800°C.

    • Authors: V. F. Tyapkov; T. I. Petrova; F. V. Dyachenko; A. K. Borodastov
      Abstract: One of the operational problems of NPP with VVER is equipment corrosion in the second loop. Different water-chemical regimes are used to lower the corrosion rate. Data on the iron concentration in the feed water and the formation of deposits in the steam-generator in different water-chemistry regimes (hydrazineammonia, ethanolamine, morpholamine) are presented. It is noted that a regime with ethanolamine and ammonia dosing is promising. The results of laboratory experiments whose aim was to study the effect of ethanolamine on the cationite volume capacity are presented. It is found that the volume capacity of recycled cationites remains almost unchanged, but the presence of ethanolamine decreases it by approximately 11%.

The parameters of individual stages of the process are studied – temperature effect, acid amount introduced, and contact time. The individual stages of the reprocessing are described. The characteristics of the final product are investigated – solid sodium-aluminum-phosphate glass matrix and immobilization of radionuclides.

  • Investigation of the Effect of Radiation-Induced Shape Change of Fuel
           Assemblies on the Temperature Regime and Stress-Strain State of
           Fuel-Element Cladding
    • Authors: A. P. Sorokin; G. P. Bogoslovskaya; A. A. Trufanov; N. A. Denisova
      Abstract: Methods of calculating the temperature regime and stress-strain state of fuel elements in a sodium-cooled BN-600 are presented. Deformation effects and the local azimuthal temperature distribution of fuel elements with wire winding spacing in fuel assemblies are taken into account. The influence of radiation effects on the temperature regime and stress-state of the fuel elements is shown. The maximum stresses are observed in the section with maximum shape change. At run completion, as a result of nonuniform swelling of the cladding material, on the inner fiber of the cladding the compression stresses transform into tensile stresses and repeat the character of the temperature distribution along the cladding perimeter. The maximum inelastic accumulated strains (εc = 1.5%) occur at the point of greatest swelling and high tangential stress.

  • Simultaneous Determination of the Reactivity and Neutron Value in Kinetic
           Measurements to Account for Spatial Effects
    • Authors: A. M. Degtyarev; A. A. Myasnikov; T. E. Trofimova; O. A. Seryanina; S. E. Sorokin
      Abstract: For known neutron value function, the equation of a nonstationary process in a reactor can be put into a form that is identical to the point-kinetic equation. On this basis, a method is proposed for simultaneously determining the reactivity and neutron value functionals directly from kinetic measurements; this makes it possible to correctly account for spatial effects theoretically. A transient process with strong deformation of the neutron flux in a planar reactor is examined. In neutron flux monitoring using a system of point detectors, the proposed procedure evaluates the reactivity to within 5%; according to the indications of individual detectors, the reactivity was found to be 0.8–6 times its true value.

  • Verification of the Mathematical Model for Calculating the Irradiation
           Dose from a Radioactive Cloud of Arbitrary Shape Taking Account of
           Screening by Buildings
    • Authors: D. V. Dzama; O. S. Sorokovikova
      Abstract: A three-dimensional code for calculating the dissemination of radioactive contamination in the presence of industrial buildings is being developed at IBRAE RAN. The irradiation dose near an object, including the dose from a radioactive cloud, is calculated on the basis of modeling. The calculation is conducted taking account of radiation screening by buildings. This work is devoted to the verification of the computational method. Calculations of two tests are presented: with and without a screening obstacle. It is concluded that the accuracy of the method, incorporated into the three-dimensional computational code, is adequate.
