Advances in Radiation Shielding for Fusion Reactors

Advances in Radiation Shielding for Fusion Reactors provides complete guidance on radiation shielding principles and their application to nuclear fusion facilities, incorporating the lessons learnt from the design and construction of the latest major modern nuclear fusion facilities such as ITER. It provides an insight of the main challenges and the computational approach to deal with them efficiently. Although applicable to general radiation shielding problems, specific attention is given to problems associated with conceptual fusion reactors. This includes neutron and gamma-ray shielding in deep penetration and streaming geometries, activation, radio-active waste, occupational radiation exposure and ALARA. Descriptions of shielding issues for fusion reactors, and shielding principles and strategies, and lessons learnt from the conception and construction of ITER Advanced and modern computation methods to predict and analyse radiation fields in 3D to identify shielding needs or validate shielding proposals Revision of the main sources of uncertainty to be considered in these calculations and a methodology to determine and apply safety factors to mitigate the impact of uncertainties

Dur previous volume 14 was devoted to an exposition of the topics of sensitivity analysis and uncertainty theory with its development and application in nuclear reactor physics at the heart of the discussion. In this volume, we return to our customary format as a selection of topics of current interest, authored by those working in the field. These topics range from the theoretical underpinnings of the (linear) Boltzmann transport equation to a resume of our ex pectations in what still may

Advances in Nuclear Science and Technology, Volume 9 provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of nuclear science and technology. This book discusses the safe and beneficial development of land-based nuclear power plants. Organized into five chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the possible consequences of a large-scale release of radioactivity from a nuclear reactor in the event of a serious accident. This text then discusses the extension of conventional perturbation techniques to multidimensional systems and to high-order approximations

This book of proceedings collects the papers presented at the Workshop on Diagnostics for ITER, held at Villa Monastero, Varenna (Italy), from August 28 to September 1, 1995. The Workshop was organised by the International School of Plasma Physics "Piero Caldirola. " Established in 1971, the ISPP has organised over fifty advanced courses and workshops on topics mainly related to plasma physics. In particular, courses and workshops on plasma diagnostics (previously held in 1975, 1978, 1982, 1986, and 1991) can be considered milestones in the history of this institution. Looking
