Analysis of ORNL fusion reactor shield integral experiments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The nuclear performance of the blanket and shield in a fusion reactor will have a substantial impact on the overall operation and capital cost of the reactor. It is necessary, therefore, to have experimental verification of the nuclear data and radiation transport methods that will be used to carry out the nuclear design calculations for these assemblies. Integral experiments are being performed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory to provide the experimental data needed for this verification. The verification will be made by extensive comparisons between calculated results and these experimental data. Measurements of the transport of 14-MeV neutrons through ... continued below

Description

The nuclear performance of the blanket and shield in a fusion reactor will have a substantial impact on the overall operation and capital cost of the reactor. It is necessary, therefore, to have experimental verification of the nuclear data and radiation transport methods that will be used to carry out the nuclear design calculations for these assemblies. Integral experiments are being performed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory to provide the experimental data needed for this verification. The verification will be made by extensive comparisons between calculated results and these experimental data. Measurements of the transport of 14-MeV neutrons through laminated shields containing materials that are anticipated for use in fusion applications and the effect of introducing penetrations in the shields will be made. This paper summarizes the results of measurements and calculations to determine neutron and photon spectra behind laminated shields of varying composition and thickness.
