Evaluation of neutron flux and gamma heating for irradiation tests of JMTR

Nagao, Yoshiharu ; Itabashi, Yukio; Komori, Yoshihiro ; Niimi, Motoji; Fujiki, Kazuo

An improved analysis procedure has been introduced to evaluate irradiation field at each specimen in the irradiation capsule by using the MCNP code, which is able to model the complicated structure of the capsule directly. As the verification results, it was confirmed that the calculated fast and thermal neutron flux/fluence were agreed with measured ones within $$pm$$10% and $$pm$$30%, respectively, for the irradiation tests in the JMTR. Concerning gamma dose/spectrum, it was confirmed that the calculated temperature was evaluated within -3$$sim$$+14% using gamma heating obtained by MCNP calculations. The evaluations of neutron flux/fluence and specimens temperature with high accuracy are therefore possible in the irradiation test of the JMTR.
