これまでTMI-2事故時の汚染水処理に用いた水没式の脱塩システム(SDS)に対して、アスペクト比の小さな吸着塔を円筒形状に近似して、その軸方向のみを対象にしたgammaスキャニングに関する解析的研究を進めてきた。本研究では、事故時の報告書をもとに再現した現実系の軸方向のスキャニングを模擬した計算を行い、円筒形状の結果と比較するとともに、径方向のスキャニングも新たに試みて、吸着塔内の核種分布の3次元評価の可能性を模索した。吸着塔の上面および底面からの径方向のスキャニングの模擬計算では、ゼオライト充填層中に仮想的なディスク形状とシェル形状に設定したCs-137がそれぞれ明瞭に観察可能であることを確証した。

The gamma-scanning of SDS (submerged demineralizer system) vessel used as a typical vessel for decontamination of radioactive water at Three Mile Island Unit 2 (TMI-2) accident was simulated in the axial and radial directions of real and cylindrical-shaped vessels by using a Monte Carlo calculation code (PHITS) on the basis of the geometrical and compositional information of vessel and gamma-scanning available in the previous reports at the accident. In the axial simulation, the true distribution of radioactive $$^{137}$$Cs in the zeolite packed bed of vessel was successfully evaluated when a correction function derived from a virtual constant distribution of $$^{137}$$Cs was applied to the reported gamma-scanning profile. In the radial simulation, the virtual disk-formed and shell-formed sources of $$^{137}$$Cs displaced in the packed bed were clearly observed from the top and bottom views of vessel. This new radial gamma-scanning indicates that the radial localization of $$^{137}$$Cs could be well observed by measuring gamma-ray from the top view of vessel during storage. We further examined the radial gamma-scanning from the side view whether the radial localization of $$^{137}$$Cs can be confirmed in the normally existing gamma-scanning room or not.
