Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Neutronic Analysis of FAST ' As part of the Fusion Advanced Studies Torus (FAST) project, a neutronic analysis has been performed, aimed to design optimization and radiological safety assessment. The neutron emissivity source foreseen for various FAST scenarios has been calculated and used as input for Monte Carlo calculations. The shielding analysis and nuclear heating calculations have been carried out with MCNP5 using a detailed 3-D model of the machine. The energy and spatial distributions of neutron fluxes have been used to perform activation analysis by means of the FISPACT code for safety assessment. The implications of the results on the design of the machine and on safety issues are presented and discussed.
