The ‘simulation analysis’ deception technique


It seems to me that an LOCA occurred due to pipe damage; large amounts of steam blew out into the containment vessel (drywell) heading toward the suppression chamber, but due to the hydrodynamic loads and the ‘sloshing’ at the time of the earthquake, the structures were damaged and the pressure suppression mechanism was lost. As a result, steam volume was not reduced through condensation, and thus the pressure in the containment vessel rose to 0.74 MPa (about 7.4 atm), and this is the answer to the ‘greatest puzzle of the 1F 1 accident.’

Meanwhile, on Sunday, 15 May, TEPCO held an emergency press conference to explain that, as a result of a ‘simulation analysis,’ 1F 1 had experienced a ‘meltdown’ (by this term TEPCO apparently meant that molten fuel rods had fallen to the bottom of the reactor) at quite an early stage.

TEPCO did not really need to explain this as it had already become quite obvious to many people that a meltdown had occurred, but perhaps because this was the moment when TEPCO at last ‘formally’ recognized the fact, this meltdown press conference is still accepted by the general public in a positive and favorable light. In fact, it was clearly a TEPCO ‘trap,’ and most people walked straight into it. In a simulation analysis, you can get any result you want simply by altering the conditions of the analysis (i.e. the input data). However, most people were so surprised by TEPCO’s admission of the so-called ‘high-speed meltdown’ that almost no one thought to ask about the simulation analysis conditions.

Once again, the greatest puzzle of the 1F 1 accident sequence was why the containment vessel pressure rose to 0.74 MPa (about 7.4 atm). TEPCO must naturally have thought at first that it was an LOCA. They probably wondered about what sorts of things could happen to cause the containment vessel pressure to rise to 0.74 MPa. The Mark-I containment vessel’s ‘unresolved safety issue’ must have passed through the analyst’s mind. Certainly, the ‘sloshing’ problem at the time of the earthquake must also have passed through his mind. However, TEPCO would not wish to take up these matters in the simulation analysis, because that would then make an issue out of ‘earthquakes.’ If this were to be presented in a simulation, the ten Mark-I containment vessels still being used in Japan (excluding those used in 1F 1-5) would immediately become a ‘big problem.’

The TEPCO simulation analysis considered no impact from the earthquake. So how did TEPCO manage to arrange for the simulation to achieve the ‘abnormal’ containment vessel pressure rise? Figures 3 and 4 give the answer. Looking at Figure 3, the reactor water level drops precipitously (because the input conditions are set for it to do that, but I will not go into the details here). In this case the fuel rods very quickly melt down. In fact, looking at Figure 4, you can see that it says ‘RPV (reactor pressure vessel) damage’ at about 15 hours after the earthquake struck. That is, a meltdown occurred and a hole opened up ‘somewhere’ in the RPV.

As a result, as the meltdown proceeded in the RPV, the high temperature, high pressure gas blasted violently out through that hole into the containment vessel. Thus the containment vessel pressure rose rapidly (Fig. 4). This is TEPCO’s ‘simulation analysis’ deception technique.

This is nothing but a ‘voodoo simulation’ in which the earthquake issue is cleverly ignored using the smokescreen of the high-speed meltdown. The undeniable gap between the actual measured values for the reactor water level and the result of the simulation is the very piece of evidence that is needed to see through this disgraceful deception.

Abe visits two towns in Fukushima no-go zone

TOKYO — Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday visited two towns in the no-go zone around the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture.

Abe visited Namie and Tomioka towns and met with displaced residents from the towns, Fuji TV reported. It was his second visit to the region since he became prime minister. Last December, Abe visited the crippled power plant to check on the progress of decommissioning work.

On Sunday, Abe met with local officials of Namie town where limited access will be allowed after April 1—meaning residents can make short visits back to their homes. In Tomioka, where limited access will also be permitted from this week, Abe met with displaced farmers, Fuji reported.

Critical safety documents are continuously withheld from the public with a total lack of openness and transparency.

Fairewinds founder Maggie Gundersen and Enformable's Editor Lucas Hixson meet with Kevin Hurley to discuss the difficulties the public has in obtaining information from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and from reactor owners. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) has been a failure in allowing the public to have access to information that affects the safety of their communities.

Criticism arises over nuclear agency's fees to view documents

Criticism has arisen over a decision by the secretariat to the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) to charge a fee to view nuclear power-related documents that were previously free, in a move that goes against the agency's policy of information transparency.

The change occurred in September last year when the agency was created and inherited the documents -- around 40,000 binders of files such as application forms for the construction and operation of nuclear plants and safety evaluation forms -- from a nuclear power resource center that it replaced. The center had made the documents available for browsing by the public, but under the NRA secretariat they are now kept in storage and have to be specifically requested to be seen.

New Fukushima danger zone designations allow residents to visit former homes

TOKYO — The Fukushima town of Tomioka on Monday became the eighth location near the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nucear power plant to be redesignated as part of a government plan to speed up reconstruction.

Wards within Tomioka, a formerly-abandoned town (except for one resident) in the Futaba district of Fukushima, were redesignated in a bid to allow former residents to visit their properties and begin clean-up operations, TV Asahi reported Monday.

The government hopes the new, reworded zone labels will help to mitigate fears. Towns that had formerly been designated as “No-Entry” zones or “Expanded Evacuation” zones due to the nuclear crisis triggered by the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami, are to be redesignated to allow for gradual rebuilding of Fukushima’s infrastructure.

The new designations include three categories, each with its own entry rules. “Return Forbidden” are closed zones with over 50 mSv of radiation dose per year. “Residence Forbidden” applies to areas with over 20 and under 50 mSv of radiation per year. Finally, “Preparing for Evacuation Cancellation” is the designation for areas registering under 20mSv of radiation per year.

Earthquake protection strips give new meaning to 'band-aid solution'

TOKYO — Dr Shunichi Igarashi has surprised even himself with his line of Super Reinforcement with Flexibility (SRF) technology. SRF basically involves wrapping the columns and walls of building in adhesive strips.

The idea of gluing fabric on a building to protect it from the sheer force of an earthquake doesn’t sound very comforting. However, when Dr Igarashi’s SRF was put to the test in the Great Tohoku Earthquake on March 11, 2011, it passed with flying colors.

The process of SRF is actually as simple as it sounds. Just expose the surface of a pillar, apply a specially designed solvent-free adhesive and wrap the strips of fabric tightly around the column. Repeat if necessary, and your building becomes stronger.

It’s so simple that organizations that are too important to close down such as hospitals can continue functioning at full capacity while the renovation is being done. The adhesive has no odors or fumes and the process is quiet.

British bad weather kills one, closes nuclear site

Britain was blitzed by unseasonal heavy snowfall and rain on Friday that left one person dead in a landslide and forced the closure of a nuclear site.

Thousands of homes lost power during the latest spell of bad spring weather in a month that the British media have dubbed "Miserable March".

The Sellafield nuclear site on the northwest English coast was forced to close for several hours as a precaution due to the weather.

Staff were sent home from the reprocessing and waste storage facility but there was no evidence of any safety issues, its operator said.

The plant, which deals with spent nuclear fuel from Britain and other countries, later reopened.

FAST REACTOR FOR SELLAFIELD SITE?

A ground-breaking ‘fast reactor’ could be built at Sellafield.

The scheme is entirely separate to the NuGen consortium’s plans for nuclear new build and has been put forward by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers as a way of dealing with the UK’s plutonium stockpile.

The plant would potentially create thousands of jobs, certainly in the construction phase.

Fast reactors, which are being developed by GE Hitachi in the US and the Astrid project in France, can use lower-grade plutonium as fuel. The UK has 112 tonnes of highly-radioactive plutonium. The Government’s preferred option is to mix it with uranium to make Mox fuel.
