This paper presents the ANITA-IEAF code package for the activation characterisation of materials exposed to neutrons with energies up to 150 MeV. It computes the radioactive inventories of materials exposed to neutron irradiation, continuous or stepwise. The activity, isotopic nuclide density, decay heat, biological hazard, clearance index and gamma ray source spectra are calculated at shutdown and at different cooling times. The code package is provided with a complete database that includes neutron activation data library, decay, hazard and clearance data library, and gamma library. The paper also presents an application of the ANITA-IEAF code package to the neutron exposure characterisation for the AISI 316 liner of the Test Cell area of the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility.

Abstract

This paper presents the ANITA-IEAF code package for the activation characterisation of materials exposed to neutrons with energies up to 150 MeV. It computes the radioactive inventories of materials exposed to neutron irradiation, continuous or stepwise. The activity, isotopic nuclide density, decay heat, biological hazard, clearance index and gamma ray source spectra are calculated at shutdown and at different cooling times. The code package is provided with a complete database that includes neutron activation data library, decay, hazard and clearance data library, and gamma library. The paper also presents an application of the ANITA-IEAF code package to the neutron exposure characterisation for the AISI 316 liner of the Test Cell area of the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility.
