A 1-MW spallation neutron source aiming at materials and life science researches will be constructed under the JAERI-KEK Proton Accelerator Project(J-PARC). The proton beam window functions as a boundary wall between a high vacuum area and a helium atmosphere and it is cooled by light water because high heat-density is generated in the window material by interactions with the proton beam. Then, uniformity of the water flow is requested at the window to suppress a hot-spot that causes excessive thermal stress and cooling water boiling. Also, the window has to be strong enough in its structure for inner stress due to water pressure and thermal stress due to heat generation. In this report, we propose two types of proton beam windows, flat-type and curved-type. We evaluated the strength of structure and thermal hydraulic analysis. As a result, it was found that sufficient heat removal was assured with uniform water flow at the window, and the stress could be maintained below allowable stress values. Accordingly, it was confirmed that the proton beam window designs were feasible.
