  • Behavior of the Fuel Elements of Floating Power-Generating Units Under
    • Abstract: The fuel composition uranium dioxide + aluminum alloy was developed for use in the fuel elements of the core of a floating power-generating unit and small nuclear power plants. Designs, a fabrication technology, and methods of monitoring cermet fuel elements of different unit sizes with an aluminum matrix and cladding made of zirconium alloys have been developed at VNIINM. Pre-reactor and reactor tests and post-reactor investigations of fuel elements have shown that these fuel elements hold promise for use in the core of a floating power-generating unit. The behavioral particularities of the fuel elements with fuel composition uranium dioxide + aluminum alloy under irradiation have been determined.

  • Nuclear Safety of an RBMK Spent Fuel Pool
    • Abstract: Aspects of the nuclear safety of the spent fuel pools of RMBK reactors under normal conditions and design basis and beyond design basis accidents are studied using a three-dimensional model verified by comparing with Monte Carlo calculations. It is shown that the storage of spent fuel assemblies in pencil-shaped cases secures nuclear safety in the entire range of water density, lattice spacing, and fuel burnup, i.e., in all, including hypothetical, emergency situations. For compact case-free storage, nuclear safety is secured in real scenarios where the water density changes upon disruption of heat removal or flooding of a dewatered pool. The disruption of the lattice spacing of compact storage in design basis, including seismic action, and beyond design basis accidents is examined. The conditions under which nuclear safety is secured are shown.

  • Evaluation of the Contribution of Technogenic Radionuclides to the Total
           Activity of NPP Emissions on the Basis of a Simulation Model
    • Abstract: An approach to evaluating the contribution of different sources of technogenic radionuclides to the total activity of emissions on the basis of a simulation model is proposed. The model is verified and the principles of application of the new approach in NPP are determined. The fl ow of radionuclides into surface waters can be determined by modeling their kinetics in the reservoirs of the balance scheme of the NPP. At the control points, the discrepancy between the computed and measured specific activity does not exceed 50 mBq/liter, which is comparable to the determination errors.

    • Abstract: Variants of a hypothetical accident that includes the occurrence of a spontaneous chain reaction are examined. The pathways and intensity of radionuclide emission from a nuclear submarine into seawater are determined. The 137Cs accumulation at the time of sinking is determined more accurately. The average and maximum 137Cs emission for use in predicting the contamination of the marine environment in application to the object under study are determined.

  • Gamma-Spectrometric Determination of the Plutonium Mass in Containers
    • Abstract: A method is proposed for determining the mass and isotopic composition of the plutonium warehoused in containers at the RT-1 plant of the Industrial Association Mayak. A single measurement system with a detector based on ultrapure germanium is used for the measurements. The mass is determined according to the pulse count rate in 239Pu peaks. The correction for self-absorption of radiation in a container is determined by measuring the transmission of radiation emitted from an external source and by Monte Carlo calculations. Estimates show that the total error in determining the plutonium mass by the new method is 11% (P = 0.95). The method can be used to perform confirmatory measurements in the accounting and control system for nuclear materials.

  • Verification of Benchmark Experiments by Determination of the Leakage
           Neutron Spectrum from the Surface of a Depleted Uranium Sphere with
           Embedded Radionuclide Sources
    • Abstract: Computational validation is presented for previous benchmark experiments designed to determine the energy spectra of the neutron current emanating from the surface of a uranium sphere into which small sources were arranged successively at the center. Such experiments must meet stringent reliability and error requirements, since they are intended for the final check of new or adjusted systems of neutron constants recommended for the calculation of neutron fields. The comprehensiveness of the validation was secured by the fact that experiments with the three sources 252Cf, Pu–Be, and Pu–B were validated and the calculations were performed using three systems of neutron constants BNAB-78, BBF, and BUGLE-96.

  • Computational Validation of the Spectral Projection Method Using Models of
           the RBMK Critical Stand
    • Abstract: This article is devoted to the computational validation of algorithms for determining the reactivity on the basis of the spectral projection method and the method of reconstruction of the neutron fields. The determination of the efficacy of control organs on the RBMK critical stand on the basis of the indications of several intra-zone chambers is examined. A series of numerical experiments on the release of control rods and modeling of neutron-detector currents is conducted. The computed currents and a perturbed neutronphysical model based on the proposed algorithms are used to reconstruct the neutron fields and calculate the subcriticality of the RBMK stand. It is shown that the efficacy of control rods determined in this manner agrees with the exact values.

  • RBMK-1000 Computational-Measurement Diagnostics System
    • Abstract: Continuous monitoring and diagnostics of the core state make it possible to simultaneously analyze and adjust the operation of the nuclear reactor in the event of trouble. The ECRAN 3D system was developed for timely monitoring and diagnostics of the core state and the RBMK-1000 data base. This system makes it possible to discover failures and disruptions in the operation of the reactor xxx installation which are not recorded by the standard monitoring system. The failures could be associated with technical trouble as well as errors in entering the parameters of the reactor installation into the informational-measurement system. The algorithm of the ECRAN 3D system, the results of testing the system on real data on NPP, and the particularities of the interface are described.

  • Irradiation Dose Minimization by Optimizing the Arrangement of Radiation
           Sources of Different Intensity
    • Abstract: A method of decreasing the irradiation dose rate from spent nuclear fuel or radwaste containers arranged on open storage sites or in hangar-type repositories has been developed. The dose rate is minimized by optimizing the arrangement of radiation sources of different intensities. It is shown that for a fixed number of sources the minimum dose rate at a given distance from a row of containers is reached for a definite arrangement in terms of intensity. The arrangement of the containers on the storage site and in a light hangar-type repository is determined using the particularities of the radiation emanating from the containers for dry storage of spent nuclear fuel and containers for conditioned radioactive wastes.

  • Neutron Generation in a Plasma Diode with Electrons Insulated by a
           Constant Magnetic Field
    • Abstract: Neutron generation in a vacuum plasma diode with accelerating voltage to 280 kV and laser source of deuterons in the anode was investigated. The maximum neutron yield in a regime with magnetic insulation of the electrons in the reaction D(d, n)3 He is Qdd = 5·107 per count, which is 10 times higher than the value without a magnetic field. A hollow cylindrical NdFeB magnet, which is placed inside the vacuum volume of the diode and is also the diode’s cathode, is used to create a magnetic field. The conversion on the basis of numerical modeling showed that the neutron yield in the reaction T(d, n)4 He can reach 5·109 per count.

  • MCU Code Implementation of the Calculation of Functionals in Volumes of a
           Supplementary Geometry
    • Abstract: The implementation in the MCU software complex of methods and algorithms for calculating the neutronphysical characteristics in volumes set with the aid of a supplementary geometry, which is not related with the main geometry and determines exclusively the regions of calculation of functionals and not the construction of the system being modeled, is described. Three types of supplementary geometry for Monte Carlo modeling of particle trajectories in hexagonal, cylindrical, and rectangular detection networks are implemented. These method and algorithms have greatly simplified the process of setting the initial data, increased the reliability of the calculations and the universality of the code in solving complex problems such as the calculation of the spatial distribution of the energy release and the flux density in models of power reactors.

  • Evaluation of the Effect of Radiation on the Biota Within the Regions of
           the Leningradskaya and Beloyarskaya NPPs
    • Abstract: A comparative evaluation of the effect of ionizing radiation on the biota in the regions of the Leningradskaya and Beloyarskaya NPPs based on radioecological monitoring is made. The dose loads on the representative organisms of the biota are calculated. The indices of the radiation action on these organisms are evaluated taking account of the dose limits. The irradiation dose rate (10 μGy/h) on the components of the environment in the 30-km zone of the Beloyarskaya NPP is found to be slightly above the most stringent standard for the maximum dose rate.

  • Stress–Strain Kinetics in Calculations of High-Temperature Strength
           and Longevity of Reactor Structures
    • Abstract: The plastic properties of materials must be used more fully as working temperatures and temperature gradients increase. The results of tests performed on refractory chromium-nickel alloys with combined low-cycle strain with prescribed total amplitudes and strain increments per cycle are presented. The results are compared with those obtained with rigid, cyclic, sign-alternating, and monotonic strain. A method of constructing mathematical models of a material that take account of short- and long-time characteristics of a metal in combination with the possibility of their direct use in readily available packages implementing the finite-elements method is described.

  • Investigation of Modified UO 2 Fuel with Anomalously High Thermal
    • Abstract: Pre- and post-reactor studies of the properties of modified uranium dioxide fuel fabricated by a modernized water technology, including cooling of ammonium polyuranate with large and nanosize particles obtained simultaneously followed by calcination, reduction, pressing, and sintering of pellets, were performed. The properties of such fuel are compared with those of fuel obtained by the standard water technology. It is found that the heat capacity and thermal conductivity of such fuel are 1.8–2 times higher than the reference values and that the fuel possesses high microstructural stability and capacity for retaining gaseous fission products during irradiation. This is due to special properties: the presence of nanodispersity in grains and metal clusters in which the uranium ions form U–U chemical bonds with one another.

  • Calibration of Neutron-Multiplicity Detectors
    • Abstract: A method of calibrating neutron-multiplicity detectors using standard samples, certified in terms of the effective mass of 240 Pu, is described. The proposed method has an advantage over calibration using 252 Cf samples certified in terms of the neutron flux – the systematic shift of the measurements that is associated with the approximate nature of the method is eliminated. The serviceability of the proposed method of calibration is confirmed experimentally. The accuracy of the measurements of the effective mass of 240 Pu by the neutron-multiplicity method is evaluated: the standard deviation is several tenths of a percent.

  • Preliminary Computational Analysis of Reactivity Effects Due to Heating of
           the Astra Critical Stand
    • Abstract: A computational model of the ASTRA critical stand with heating has been prepared for the purpose of studying the neutron-physical characteristics of modular reactors of the type GT-MGR. The reactivity input during heating and cooling of the stand is evaluated. It is shown that the behavior of the reactivity upon heating and cooling will be different because an electric heater is present at the center of the internal reflector and a layer of thermal insulation is present between the core and the outer reflector. A nonequilibrium contribution of different regions of the assembly in the integral temperature effect is found. It is suggested that this effect can be used in preparation for experiments performed on the critical stand.
