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.
