【PDF】 Nagoya University press release on Fukushima Daiichi unit 2 [ja]

  • Nagoya Uni “Significantly small amount of fuel remaining in Reactor 2” / No announcement about underground (Fukushima Diary, Mar. 21 2015)

    On 3/20/2015, Nagoya University announced they SAW the remaining nuclear fuel in Reactor 2 is significantly less than Reactor 5, which proved meltdown also occurred in Reactor 2.

    They have been “scanning” Reactor 2 and Reactor 5, which is believed to have sound nuclear fuel inside the Reactor core, since last Spring by using muon detecting system.

    As a result, they confirmed the remaining fuel is significantly less in Reactor 2 than Reactor 5, but need the further analysis for the precise amount of fuel remaining in Reactor core.

    From their report published by now, it seems like there is nothing remaining at least in reactor pressure vessel.

    Though they state it is possible to install the muon detecting system underground to scan the underground situation, the released report only mentioned the part above the ground.

Tokyo Electric Power: Nagoya University confirms Fukushima No. 2 reactor meltdown

Kyodo News via 4-traders.com (Mar. 20 2015):

Nagoya University said Friday it has confirmed that a meltdown occurred in the No. 2 reactor at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, after finding a reduction in the amount of nuclear fuel in the reactor in the wake of the massive 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The confirmation of a meltdown in the No. 2 reactor follows a TEPCO statement Thursday that it had confirmed almost all molten fuel in the No. 1 unit had fallen into the containment vessel.

Using special film that can detect muons, the university compared the amount of nuclear fuel left in the No. 2 reactor with that of the No. 5 unit, which was offline at the time of the 2011 disaster.

Muons, which form from cosmic radiation reaching the Earth, penetrate most matter and change direction in the face of uranium in nuclear fuel.

The university conducted such tests five times between April and July last year and will continue to analyze the collected data to estimate the amount of reduced fuel.
