Hydrogen dissolves in and permeates through most materials, thus it is important to understand the permeation, diffusion and dissolution phenomena of hydrogen and its isotopes in materials. We address the problem of tritium transport in Helium Cooled Lead-Lithium (HCLL) DEMO blanket from leadlithium breeder through different heat transfer surfaces to the environment by developing a computational code (FUS-TPC). The main features of the code are briefly described and a parametric study is performed in order to identify the most influencing parameters in terms of tritium releases into the environment and of tritium inventories.

Abstract

Hydrogen dissolves in and permeates through most materials, thus it is important to understand the permeation, diffusion and dissolution phenomena of hydrogen and its isotopes in materials. We address the problem of tritium transport in Helium Cooled Lead-Lithium (HCLL) DEMO blanket from leadlithium breeder through different heat transfer surfaces to the environment by developing a computational code (FUS-TPC). The main features of the code are briefly described and a parametric study is performed in order to identify the most influencing parameters in terms of tritium releases into the environment and of tritium inventories. The results showed that the results are strongly affected by the tritium Sievert's constant in Lead-Lithium and the efficiency of permeation barriers.
