Abstract

The paper presents results of extensive neutronic studies of the neutron source test facility based on the Novosibirsk Gas Dynamic Trap (GDT). The facility is to provide 1018DT-neutrons/s (over a continuous 10-year period) for material-test studies. The paper examines the protective-shield capacity to ensure survival of GDT vital parts and suggests design modifications when survival is in jeopardy. The numerical studies used the 3D-AMC-VINIA Monte Carlo code with a precise computer representation of the sensitive parts of the facility. Intensity maps were plotted for neutron fluences, displacements, heat deposition, etc. Shielding feasibility has been ascertained, and the lifetime of consumable components ensured beyond the recommended values. A modification is suggested to extend the irradiation space at HARD neutron energy spectra to increase the volume to 1 m3with damage gradients 100 l test space.
