Li/V合金ブランケット設計における核計算精度を調べるため、内部に5cm厚のV合金層を設けた46$$times$$51$$times$$51cm$$^3$$の固体Liブロック体系に対する14MeV中性子照射実験を実施した。体系内にはNb, Ni, In, Au箔、及び$$^6$$Li濃縮($$^6$$Li: 95.5%), $$^7$$Li濃縮($$^7$$Li: 99.9%)Li$$_2$$CO$$_3$$ペレットを設置し、$$^{93}$$Nb(n,2n)$$^{rm 92m}$$Nb, $$^{58}$$Ni(n,p)$$^{58}$$Co, $$^{115}$$In(n,n')$$^{rm 115m}$$In, $$^{197}$$Au(n,$$gamma$$)$$^{198}$$Au反応の反応率とトリチウム生成率を測定した。測定結果はMCNP5, JENDL-3.3, JENDL/D-99を用いた中性子輸送,反応率計算結果と比較した。Nb, Ni, In箔の反応率についての比較は、高速中性子輸送に関しておおむね10%以内で実験と計算が一致していることを示した。Au箔の反応率についてはV合金層表面において15%程度計算値が過小となり、過去に指摘されているVの4keV付近の弾性散乱断面積の問題に起因している可能性がある。トリチウム生成率については$$^6$$Li濃縮,$$^7$$Li濃縮Li$$_2$$CO$$_3$$ペレットで各々、2-8%及び1-4%で計算値と実験値は一致した。

Irradiation experiments of 14 MeV neutrons have been performed on a Li block assembly of 46 $$times$$ 51 $$times$$ 51 cm$$^3$$ with a 5 cm thick V-alloy layer inside to examine the accuracy of neutronics calculations for the Li/V-alloy blanket design. Foils of Nb, Ni, In and Au for reaction rate measurements of $$^{93}$$Nb(n,2n)$$^{rm 92m}$$Nb, $$^{58}$$Ni(n,p)$$^{58}$$Co, $$^{115}$$In(n,n')$$^{rm 115m}$$In, $$^{197}$$Au(n,$$gamma$$)$$^{198}$$Au reactions and $$^6$$Li enriched ($$^6$$Li: 95.5%) and $$^7$$Li enriched ($$^7$$Li: 99.9%) Li$$_2$$CO$$_3$$ pellets for tritium production rate measurements were installed in the assembly. Results of the measurements were compared with those of calculations with MCNP5, JENDL-3.3 and JENDL/D-99. The comparisons for the reaction rates in the Nb, Ni and In foils indicate that measurements and calculations of the fast neutron transport are consistent almost within 10%. In the comparison for the reaction rates in the Au foils, the underestimation of 15% was found at a surface of the V-alloy layer. There is a possibility that this is due to the elastic scattering cross section of V around 4 keV as previously reported. The comparisons for tritium production rates in the $$^6$$Li enriched and $$^7$$Li enriched Li$$_2$$CO$$_3$$ pellets indicate that calculated rates were larger than results of the measurements by 2-8% and 1-4%, respectively.
