核融合炉先進遮蔽材料としての金属水素化物及びホウ化水素の中性子遮蔽性能を評価するために中性子輸送計算を行った。これらの水素化物はポリエチレンや液体水素よりも水素含有密度が高く、一般的な遮蔽材よりも優れた遮蔽性能を示した。水素解離圧の温度依存性からZrH$$_{2}$$とTiH$$_{2}$$は1気圧において640$$^{circ}$$C以下で水素を放出することなく使用可能である。ZrH$$_{2}$$とMg(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$は、鉄水混合材料よりも遮蔽体の厚さをそれぞれ30%と20%減らすことができる。水素化物とF82Hとの混合により$$gamma$$線の遮蔽性能が高くなる。中性子及び$$gamma$$線の遮蔽性能は以下の順で小さくなる:ZrH$$_{2}$$$$>$$Mg(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ and F82H$$>$$TiH$$_{2}$$ and F82H$$>$$water and F82H。

Neutron transport calculations were carried out to evaluate the capability of metal hydrides and borohydrides as an advanced shielding material. Some hydrides indicated considerably higher hydrogen content than polyethylene and solid hydrogen. The hydrogen-rich hydrides show superior neutron shielding capability to the conventional materials. From the temperature dependence of dissociation pressure, ZrH$$_{2}$$ and TiH$$_{2}$$ can be used without releasing hydrogen at the temperature of less than 640 $$^{circ}$$C at 1 atm. ZrH$$_{2}$$ and Mg(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ can reduce the thickness of the shield by 30% and 20% compared to a combination of steel and water, respectively. Mixing some hydrides with F82H produces considerable effects in $$gamma$$-ray shielding. The neutron and $$gamma$$-ray shielding capabilities decrease in order of ZrH$$_{2}$$ $$>$$ Mg(BH$$_{4}$$)$$_{2}$$ and F82H $$>$$ TiH$$_{2}$$ and F82H $$>$$ water and F82H.
