Abstract

Instruments and Methods were developed to explore fuel debris at the bottom of the Primary Containment Vessel in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. A Remotely Operated Vehicle was designed to explore fuel debris and to investigate the distribution and surface profile of fuel debris at the bottom of the primary containment vessel using a sonar and a compact radiation detector. Several tests were carried out using various facilities to determined the capabilities of the sonar and gamma-ray detector to determine the feasibility of the device
