米国BNLのAGS加速器による1.94, 12, 24GeVの陽子ビームを入射した鉛反射体付き水銀核破砕中性子ターゲット模擬体系における中性子工学実験の解析を行い、陽子加速器駆動による核破砕中性子源に対する中性子工学計算の妥当性検証を行った。解析にはモンテカルロ法粒子輸送計算コードNMTC/JAM, MCNPX, MCNP-4A、及びJENDL, LA-150の核データライブラリを用いた。その結果、取り扱ったエネルギー範囲がGeVからmeVまで12桁以上に及ぶにもかかわらず、高速中性子束及び熱中性子束の計算値はほぼ$$pm$$40%以内で実験値と一致した。このことから、これらの計算コードとデータの組合せによる中性子工学計算により、核破砕中性子源の核特性評価を適切に行えるとの結論を得た。

A neutronic benchmark experiment on a simulated spallation neutron target assembly with 1.94, 12 and 24 GeV proton beams conducted by using the AGS accelerator at BNL/US was analyzed to investigate validity of neutronics calculations on proton accelerator driven spallation neutron sources. Monte Carlo particle transport calculation codes NMTC/JAM, MCNPX and MCNP-4A with associated cross section data in JENDL and LA-150 were used for the analysis. As a result, although the overall energy range was encompassed from GeV to meV, i.e., more than 12 orders of magnitude, calculated fast and thermal neutron fluxes agreed approximately within $$pm$$ 40 % with the experiments. Accordingly, it was concluded that neutronics calculations with these codes and cross section data were adequate for estimating nuclear properties in spallation neutron sources.
