New integral experiments for a variety of fusion reactor materials with DT neutron source at JAEA/FNS

In the integral experiments on tungsten, vanadium and copper performed with the DT neutron source at JAEA/FNS over 20 years ago, the calculated results had largely underestimated the measured ones sensitive to low energy neutrons in the experiments. Since background neutrons scattered in the concrete wall of the experimental room were considered to cause these underestimations, in this study we performed new integral experiments with these materials covered with Li$$_{2}$$O blocks absorbing background neutrons. We also performed similar integral experiments on molybdenum and titanium. We analyzed these experiments by using MCNP5-1.40 with ENDF/B-VII.1, JEFF-3.2 and JENDL-4.0. The large underestimations observed in the previous tungsten and vanadium experiments disappeared in the present experiments, which led that the nuclear data of tungsten and vanadium had no problem. On the other hand, the underestimation was not improved so much in the copper experiment, and the calculation results also did not show good agreements with the measured ones in the molybdenum and titanium experiments. Detailed analyses with partly modified nuclear data clarified the problems of the nuclear data libraries on copper, molybdenum and titanium.
