Shielding calculations for the Long Pulse Spallation Source Facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We describe tools under development for use in deep penetration shielding problems in accelerator environments. The LAHET monte carlo code is now being upgraded in anticipation of a merger of this code with MCNP. Variance reduction via Geometry Splitting/Russian Roulette has recently been added to LAHET and is now being tested in the design of shielding for the Long Pulse Spallation Source Facility. In addition, we demonstrate methods of visualizing fluence based quantities such as equivalent dose and heating throughout the target and shielding.
