Abstract

The neutronic characteristics of the target-core system of the TRADE facility have been established and optimized for a reference proton energy of 140 MeV. Similar simulations have been repeated for two successive upgrades of the proton energy, 200 and 300 MeV, corresponding to different performances and design requirements and different characteristics of the proposed cyclotron and, as a consequence, of the proton beam. An extensive comparison of the main physical parameters has been also carried out, in order to evaluate advantages and disadvantages of different proton beam energies in the design of the spallation target and to allow the optimal engineering design of the whole TRADE facility.
