This report is inserted in the framework of the R&D for the SPES project (Study for the Production of Exotic Species). This is an accelerator based facility for the production of neutron-rich radioactive ion beams, proposed by INFN-LNL (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro). The source for the beams is provided by the 238U fission fragments obtained from a proton beam (40 MeV, 0.2 mA) directly impinging on uranium carbide disks. Here the power deposition distribution in the disks (necessary for the thermo-mechanical analyses) is evaluated by means of MCNPX. Moreover, a preliminary estimation of some radiation protection quantities has been performed: the dose due to the neutrons produced by the proton beam and the dose due to the gammas emitted by the disks and by the anticorodal containment.

Abstract

This report is inserted in the framework of the R&D for the SPES project (Study for the Production of Exotic Species). This is an accelerator based facility for the production of neutron-rich radioactive ion beams, proposed by INFN-LNL (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro). The source for the beams is provided by the 238U fission fragments obtained from a proton beam (40 MeV, 0.2 mA) directly impinging on uranium carbide disks. Here the power deposition distribution in the disks (necessary for the thermo-mechanical analyses) is evaluated by means of MCNPX. Moreover, a preliminary estimation of some radiation protection quantities has been performed: the dose due to the neutrons produced by the proton beam and the dose due to the gammas emitted by the disks and by the anticorodal containment.
