Muon shielding calculations: heterogeneous passive and active shields, applicat�ons to experimental beams and areas

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

With the advent of a new generation of high-energy and high-intensity proton accelerators such as the one being built at the National Accelerator Laboratory and the one proposed by CERN, the problem of shielding external proton targets, the secondary beams produced from these targets, and even the secondary targets in the experimental areas becomes quite a massive and expensive project. In addition to the massive hadron shielding required, the high-energy muons produced by the decay of pions and kaons add large amounts of shielding especially in the forward (beam) direction. Homogeneous shields can be designed with programs which have been ... continued below

Description

With the advent of a new generation of high-energy and high-intensity proton accelerators such as the one being built at the National Accelerator Laboratory and the one proposed by CERN, the problem of shielding external proton targets, the secondary beams produced from these targets, and even the secondary targets in the experimental areas becomes quite a massive and expensive project. In addition to the massive hadron shielding required, the high-energy muons produced by the decay of pions and kaons add large amounts of shielding especially in the forward (beam) direction. Homogeneous shields can be designed with programs which have been discussed previously. They have developed a computer program which allows them to design heterogeneous shields with voids and/or magnetic fields. The heterogeneous shields without magnetic fields are called passive shields and those with magnetic fields are called active shields. Results of some of the studies made on the design of such shields are presented. Specific application to the design of shielding for a primary external proton beam target and for a specific experiment are discussed.
