  • Organization of Hydrometeorological Monitoring in the Region of the
           Belorussian NPP
    • Abstract: A system for performing hydrometeorological monitoring of the main parameters of the state of the water and air in the region of the Belorussian NPP is described. The purpose of this system is to secure radiological safety; it is implemented in interaction with an automated system for monitoring radiation conditions. The system monitors the state of water bodies, the atmosphere near the ground, and the atmospheric boundary layer and it includes five hydrological posts on the primary water bodies, a meteorological station, and a site for performing remote temperature and wind sensing in the atmospheric boundary layer. Yearly reports are prepared for all components of hydrometeorological monitoring and reports covering specified periods are prepared for interested organizations. The experience gained in organizing hydrometeorological monitoring could be helpful for territories on which other objects using atomic energy are present.

  • Prospective Fuel Loads of Reactors in a Closed Fuel Cycle of Nuclear Power
    • Abstract: The management of accumulated spent fuel is now an urgent problem. Questions concerning the need for reprocessing and subsequent isolation of high-level wastes are elucidated. It is shown that the BN-1200 and BREST fast reactors now under consideration for closing the fuel cycle do not permit efficient use of plutonium, because for the existing spent-fuel reprocessing technologies these reactors could be very expensive or a long cool-down time may be required, which will reduce the positive effect from closing the fuel cycle. The requirements of fast reactors that make fast reprocessing of spent fuel possible with the minimal environmental load on the fuel cycle are formulated.

  • Investigation of the Radiation Resistance of the Alloy SAV-1 Irradiated to
           Fluence ~3.5·10 22 cm −2 ( E > 0.8·MeV)
    • Abstract: The results of a study of the radiation resistance of the alloy SAV-1, which is the primary structural material of VVR-M reactor, are presented. During 2008–2010, reactor tests and post-reactor materials’ studies were performed on samples irradiated to fluence ~3.5·1022 cm–2 (E > 0.8 MeV) in the SM and to 4.45·1021 cm–2 in the VVR-M reactors. Data are presented on the erosion and structural characteristics of the samples and the computed and experimental changes in the silicon content in the alloy. The mechanical characteristics of the samples were studied. The stress–strain state of the support lattice of VVR-M and the horizontal channel GEK-4 as well as their resistance to brittle fracture were calculated on the basis of the mechanical characteristics obtained for the alloy. The data obtained are now used as the basis for validating service life extension for VVR-M.

  • Increasing the Efficiency of Ion Sources of Vacuum Neutron Tubes
    • Abstract: Optimization of the operating regime of power supply circuits of vacuum neutron tubes by inserting additional elements eliminates the instability of current flow, matches the acceleration and discharge pulses, and makes it possible to decrease significantly the current and neutron load on the ion source. In addition, the neutron yield does not decrease, as experiments confirm.

  • Experimental Investigations of the Characteristics of Heat-Exchange and
           Temperature Fields in the Channels and Fuel-Element Assemblies of
           Lead-Cooled Fast Reactors
    • Abstract: The results of experimental investigations of heat exchange and temperature fields in channels and fuel assemblies in lead-cooled fast reactors performed at the Leipunskii Institute for Physics and Power Engineering are presented. The main investigations were performed using mercury and lead-bismuth and sodium-potassium alloys. The effect of the contact thermal resistance on heat exchange is analyzed. Data on heat transfer and the azimuthal temperature nonuniformity of the fuel elements are compared for assemblies with a wide lattice, relative spacing s/d = 1.33, smooth fuel elements, and spacing of fuel elements by an ‘edge on edge’ double winding and transverse lattices are compared.

  • Form of Uranium Found in Phosphate Ores in Northern Kazakhstan
    • Abstract: The sequence in which uranium and phosphorus compounds are extracted from phosphate raw materials of different origin (Zaozernoe, Grachevskoe, and Melovoe deposits) is investigated. It is shown that in the case of fractional dissolution of samples from the Zaozernoe deposit the uranium is found in the solution and precipitate after acidic decomposition in the form of unrevealed uranium-containing minerals, while in the case of the Melovoe deposit the uranium and phosphorus are in solution and uranium and phosphorus deposits cannot be present in the precipitates.

  • Experimental Investigations of the Thermohydraulic Characteristics of
           Transverse Lead-Coolant Flow over the Tubes of a Steam Generator
    • Abstract: The results of experimental studies of lead-to-wall heat transfer during transverse flow over a straight-line tube bundle in a steam generator in the circulation loop during monitored and controlled mass-exchange and mass-transfer of oxygen impurities are presented. The investigations were performed in a nonisothermal loop with circulation of lead coolant at temperature 450–550°C, average coolant velocity in a narrow-gap section 0.2–1.5 m/sec, Peclet number 900–3000, and thermodynamic activity of oxygen in lead 1–10–4. The processes occurring in a nonisothermal liquid-metal loop with an experimental cooling section model the dependence of the characteristics of heat exchange on the mass transfer of impurities in the loop.

  • Performance Improvement of Pulse Neutron Generators
    • Abstract: Different operating regimes of a source of ions for vacuum neutron tubes developed at the All-Russia Research Institute of Automatics (VNIIA) for portable pulse neutron generators are examined. Experiments demonstrate unstable reproduction of the time dependences of the current in the primary discharge gap of the ion source. The oscillograms of the current and voltage pulses of the arc discharge show the presence of instabilities in the vacuum arc. It is also found that during the first half of the current the burn regime of the arc is strongly nonstationary.

  • Modeling of 14 C Diffusion from the Core of the Decommissioned ad Reactor
    • Abstract: A mathematical model of the diffusion of radionuclides through engineered safety barriers is developed for 14C in order to determine the long-term safety conditions and characteristics of a decommissioned commercial uranium-graphite reactor. Dry and wet mixtures and concrete are used as the barrier materials. Diffusion is studied as the dominant mechanism for the transport of the radionuclides. The 14C concentration at the boundary between the radwaste storage site and the environment is determined computationally and the effect of the modeling conditions on the specific activity of the radionuclide is analyzed. The decomposition sequence of the safety barriers for which the 14C concentration is much lower than the admissible value is determined.

  • System for Active Removal of the Residual Heat Released in Vver-1000
    • Abstract: A variant of the combination of an NPP with a continually operating low-capacity additional steam turbine is proposed and analyzed. In the event of an accident with total blackout, the proposed setup makes it possible to supply electricity to first- and second-category consumers and circulation pumps. In addition, the residual heat released is used to maintain the require power of the additional turbine. A probabilistic safety evaluation of an NPP combined with an additional continually operating steam turbine is presented. The proposed setup makes it possible to increase considerably the reliability of the electricity supply in emergency situations associated with a blackout and reduce the probability of accidents in which the core is damaged.

  • Calculation of Impurity Mass Transfer in Cold Traps with Sodium Cooling
    • Abstract: The design of a cold trap is optimized in order to maximize the capacity in terms of impurities. The main criterion of optimization is uniformity of the distribution of impurity deposits along the length of the trap. The modified OpenFOAM code was used to solve the complex thermohydraulic and mass transfer problem. The problem was modeled in a stationary formulation by solving the Reynolds average Navier–Stokes equations (RANS) by the SIMPLE method. The calculations showed that OpenFOAM makes it possible to calculate the heat exchange and mass transfer of impurities in the trap cavity. The MASKA-LM code was used in the calculations in order to take account of changes in the geometry of the computational region by deposits on solid surfaces. The proposed computational method makes it possible to evaluate the impurity capacity of a cold trap and the time to exhaustion of its service life.

  • Effect of Nucleation on the Behavior of Aerosols of Fission Products in
           the First Loop of VVER
    • Abstract: The modeling of the deposition of cesium, iodine, and silver in comparison with the PHEBUS FPT1 experiment is examined for two models of the formation of aerosols of fission products: taking account of nucleation and conservative setting of the initial size of the aerosols of nonvolatile components. It is shown that it is important to take aerosols into account in order to calculate the deposition of cesium and silver. The discrepancy between the computed deposition of iodine and experiment is primarily due to the absence of a model of the nonequilibrium chemistry of compounds in the gas phase.

  • Determination of the Content of Admixed Components in an Optimal
           Multistream Cascade
    • Abstract: An analytical determination of the concentration of admixed component in the product and waste streams of a multistream cascade separating a multicomponent isotopic mixture is examined. It is proposed that the solution of the systems of differential equations describing the variation in the concentration of the components of a mixture over the steps assuming the enrichment effects to be small be used. The general approach to obtaining analytical relations for the evaluations is shown for the example of cascades with several feed and product streams. Calculations of uranium cascades are performed, showing good agreement between the analytical determinations and the numerical calculations for the separation of natural and waste depleted uranium hexafluoride obtained from regenerated uranium.

  • Improvement of the Neutron-Physical Characteristics of the VVR-Ts Reactor
           by Substituting a Beryllium Reflector for Some Fuel Assemblies in the Core
    • Abstract: The results of computational studies of the possibility of using beryllium reflectors to improve the neutronphysical characteristics of the VVR-Ts reactor, which is used at the Karpov Research Institute of Physical Chemistry to produce radionuclides, are presented. The calculations showed that in principle beryllium can be used by substituting it for some number of standard fuel assemblies. This made it possible to decrease the number of fuel assemblies from 70 in the standard core to 59 in a modified core and increase the run time to 14 days. The calculations also indicate that the neutron flux density in the experimental channels can be increased significantly, which is important for increasing the production of radionuclides. The hermophysical aspects of the modified core are not studied.

  • Microwave Radiation Emission During Large Accidents at NPP
    • Abstract: The possibilities of early detection of serious accidents at NPPs by using passive microwave radiolocation are discussed. Estimates of the brightness and antenna temperature of a partially ionized cloud created by the first emission of γ-radiation from the Chernobyl NPP are presented. It is shown that the microwave radiation can be detected by means of modern radiometers placed in low-flying satellites and airplanes as well as on stationary ground-based platforms.

  • Electrochemical Model of Uranium Dioxide Dissolution in Nitric Acid
    • Abstract: The aim of this work is to validate the electrochemical model of the dissolution of uranium nitride in nitric acid. It is shown that uranium nitride dissolution in water solutions of HNO3 can be explained by the presence of electrochemical processes which are interrelated but proceed separately: UN dissolution at the anode, subsequent chemical decomposition of UN in the space near the anode, and oxidation of HNO3 at the cathode. The proposed model explains the isotopic composition and ratio of the products formed in the gas phase. The mechanism of the process of uranium nitride dissolution in nitric acid can be described by the total reaction 6UN + 25HNO3 → 6UO2(NO3)2 + 3NH3 + N2 + N2O + 6NO + 6NO2 + 8H2O.

  • Precision Calculations of Some Neutron-Physical Characteristics of
           VVER-1000 Using the MCU Code
    • Abstract: Highly detailed computational models of the reactors in the Nos. 2 and 3 units at the Rostov NPP and the No. 3 unit at the Tianwan NPP (China) with the first fuel load are briefly described. Calculations of two states of the reactors were performed with the MCU code, implementing the Monte Carlo method, for each model: at the lowest controllable power and at nominal power. A TPA thermophysical module connected to the MCU code was used to take account of feedbacks in calculating the state of the reactor at nominal power. Analysis of the results obtained using the MCU and BIPR-7A codes showed agreement between the main characteristics of the reactor facilities.

  • Development of a Method of Direct Numerical Modeling of Turbulent Flows
           Using a Supercomputer
    • Abstract: A method of direct numerical modeling of turbulent flows in the elements of nuclear power setups using a supercomputer is being developed at the Institute of Problems in the Safe Development of Nuclear Energy. The method is based on developed low numerical diffusion algorithms for which discrete approximations are constructed using finite-volume and completely separated grid methods. A regularized nonlinear monotonic operator separation scheme has been developed for solving the advection problem. Richardson’s iteration method with a preconditioner (i.e., a special matrix, premultiplication by which improves the convergence of the numerical method) in the form of the fast Fourier transform for the Laplace operator is used to solve the pressure equation. This approach to solving elliptic equations with variable coefficients gives multifold acceleration compared with the ordinary method of conjugate gradients. Quasi-direct numerical modeling is used to model the three-dimensional turbulent flows in single-phase flows. The method is implemented in the CONV-3D code, which is parallelized and efficient on the multiprocessor cluster computers Chebyshev and Lomonosov (Moscow State University).
