本研究では、加速器駆動核変換システム(ADS)の大きな課題の一つであるビーム窓の設計検討を行った。ADS炉心に未臨界度調整棒を導入し、燃焼期間中の陽子ビーム電流値を低減することでビーム窓の設計条件を緩和し、新たな設計条件で検討を行った。ADS核計算においては、ADS3Dコードを使用し、未臨界度調整棒を導入することで陽子ビーム電流値を従来の20mAから13.5mAへ低減できることを示した。この条件を元に、ビーム窓および核破砕ターゲットに対して、陽子・中性子輸送計算(PHITSコード)、熱流動解析(STAR-CCM+コード)、構造解析(ANSYSコード)を実施した。これらの連成解析の結果、成立性の高いビーム窓概念の設計条件を提示した。最も堅牢な概念は、半球型で外径470mm、先端厚さ3.5mm、座屈圧力9となる概念である。

A new beam window concept for accelerator-driven system (ADS) is investigated by changing the design condition. The most important factor for the beam window design is the proton beam current. The design condition will be mitigated if the proton beam current will be reduced. To reduce the proton beam current, a subcriticality adjustment rod (SAR) which was a B$$_4$$C control rod was employed and neutronics calculations were performed by ADS3D code. The results of the neutronics calculation indicated that the proton beam current was reduced from 20mA to 13.5mA by the installation of SARs. Based on the mitigated calculation condition, the investigation of the beam window was performed by the couple analyses of the particle transport, the thermal hydraulics and the structural analysis. Through these coupled analyses, more feasible beam window concept which was the hemispherical shape, the outer diameter = 470mm, the thickness at the top = 3.5mm and factor of safety =9 was presented.
