  • A control rod drive mechanism (CRDM) is an electromechanical equipment that provides linear movement for the control rods to control the nuclear reactivity in a nuclear reactor. A rod position indication system (RPIS) detects the control rod's position. To enhance the measurement accuracy of the system, a magnetostrictive type sensor with capability of generating operation limiting signals would be adapted instead of a conventional RPIS for a CRDM. An RPIS was modelled for a numerical analysis with the permanent magnets at the stationary limit positions and magnetic shielding plates with a moving permanent magnet. The performance analysis of the RPIS were conducted, and the results were discussed here.

  • For sensitive measurements of micro-Tesla nuclear magnetic resonance (${\mu}T$-NMR) signal, a low-noise superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) system is needed. We have fabricated a liquid He dewar for an SQUID having a large diameter for the pickup coil. The initial test of the SQUID system showed much higher low-frequency magnetic noise caused by the thermal magnetic noise of the aluminum plates used for the vapor-cooled thermal shield material. The frequency dependence of the noise spectrum showed that the noise increases with the decrease of frequency. This behavior could be explained from a two-layer model; one generating the thermal noise and the other one shielding the thermal noise by eddy-current shielding. And the eddy-current shielding effect is strongly dependent on the frequency through the skin-depth. To minimize the loop size for the fluctuating thermal noise current, we changed the thermal shield material into insulated thin Cu mesh. The magnetic noise of the SQUID system became flat down to 0.1 Hz with a white noise of 0.3 $fT/{\surd}Hz$, including the other noise contributions such as SQUID electronics and magnetically shielded room, etc, which is acceptable for low-noise ${\mu}T$-NMR experiments.

  • Rather than causing damage from heat, blast, and radiation of a regular nuclear weapon, recently, it is predicted that North Korea has been inventing high altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) missile in order to incapacitate electronic equipment. HEMP shielding facility is used for military purpose today. Despite the electromagnetic shielding effects from high quality compression plates, problems may include such as the possibility of electromagnetic influx resulting in the welding of the compression plates, and difficulties and high cost of construction. Therefore, in this study, a high electrical conducting material was added to the concrete experimental subject to ensure the shielding effect through electromagnetic waves to for the concrete structure, instead of building a shielding facility separately for the structure. Also, among the experimental subjects, 100 ${\mu}m$ of Iron-Aluminum alloy metal spraying coat was applied to two types with the highest shielding effect, and to two types with the lowest shielding effect. The result of the experiment indicates that experimental subjects added with a high electrical conductivity material did not meet the minimum shielding criteria of MIL-STD-118-125-1 standard, but all the experimental material applied to the metal spraying coating satisfied the minimum shielding criteria. In conclusion, it is considered that 100 µm of Iron-Aluminum alloy metal spraying coat contains high efficiency in the HEMP shielding.
