Assessment of lead-bismuth eutectic target material for accelerator driven transmuters.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Lead-Bismuth Eutectic is under consideration as a target material with high-energy protons for generating spallation neutrons to operate actinide and fission product transmuters. An assessment has been performed to study the performance of this target material as a function of the main variables and the design selections. The assessment includes the neutron yield, the spatial energy deposition, the neutron spectrum, the beam window performance, and the target buffer requirements. Heat transfer, hydraulics, beam window material and stresses, and target engineering issues have been considered. The assessment has also considered high-energy deuteron particles to study the impact on the target performance.
