400MeVに加速された最大出力250kWの負水素イオンビームを条件に、J-PARCセンターが建設を計画している核変換実験施設(TEF: Transmutation Experimental Facility)におけるADSターゲット試験施設(TEF-T: ADS Target Test Facility)の遮蔽解析を行った。解析にはMonte Carlo粒子輸送計算コードPHITSを使用し、高エネルギー核反応モデルにINCL4.6及びGEMを用いた。解析対象は鉛ビスマス標的から生成される中性子を遮蔽するターゲットステーション、ビーム調整に使用するビームダンプ、鉛ビスマス標的を取り扱うホットセル、及び400-MeV LINACから鉛ビスマス標的までのビーム輸送系の遮蔽構造とし、解析によりTEF-T全体の施設の構造を決定した。さらに、解析の結果、鉛ビスマス標的から陽子ビーム入射に対し180度方向に生成・放出される中性子が施設の遮蔽設計に重大な影響を与えることが分かった。

To promote research, development, and demonstration of elemental technologies for accelerator-driven systems (ADS), the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) is planning to construct Transmutation Experimental Facility (TEF) at J-PARC. At ADS Target Test Facility (TEF-T), 250-kW H$$^{-}$$ beams accelerated by the 400-MeVLINAC will be derived to a lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) target for the material examinations aimed for the ADS. The TEF-T will operate as a spallation neutron source especially for research and development of semiconductor by using high-energy neutrons. For the license of this facility, the shielding design is important because unnecessary shield increase drastically the cost of construction. In this study, shielding analysis was carried out for whole structure of the TEF in detail toward the construction. To reduce the neutron flux and cost efficiently, an iron and an ordinary concrete will be employed as shield. The detailed structure for the shielding was determined by the PHITS code based on the intra-nuclear cascade with statistical decay model. It was found that the backward neutrons from the target are important to reduce the cost of the shielding so that we have plan to measure by using J-PARC accelerator. Shielding including the beam tunnel, hot-cell to maintain the LBE target, beam dumps for beam commissioning, and a neutron beam port for multipurpose utilization were also determined. This paper presents the results of the shielding analysis for these components and the shielding structure of the whole TEF.
