The energy spectra of neutrons were measured by a time-of-flight method for 120 GeV protons on thick graphite, aluminum, copper, and tungsten targets with an NE213 scintillator at the Fermilab Test Beam Facility. Neutron energy spectra were obtained between 25 and 3000 MeV at emission angles of 30, 45, 120, and 150. The spectra were parameterized as neutron emissions from three moving sources and then compared with theoretical spectra calculated by PHITS and FLUKA codes. The yields of the theoretical spectra were substantially underestimated compared with the yields of measured spectra. The integrated neutron yields from 25 to 3000 MeV calculated with PHITS code were 16-36% of the experimental yields and those calculated with FLUKA code were 26-57% of the experimental yields for all targets and emission angles.

Neutron energy spectra at 15 and 90 produced from carbon, aluminum, copper and tungsten targets bombarded with 120-GeV protons were measured at Fermilab Test Beam Facility (FTBF) for the validation of simulation codes. The target thicknesses were 60 cm for graphite, 50 cm for aluminum, 20, 40, and 60 cm for copper and 10 cm for tungsten, respectively. The neutron time-of-flight measurements were performed using an NE213 organic liquid scintillator at 5.2 m for 90 and 8.0 m for 15 measuring from the center of the target to the surface of the detector. The raw signals (waveforms) obtained from photomultiplier tubes were recorded using the 10 bit digitizer (Agilent-acqiris DC282) with 0.5 ns sampling and 500 ns duration. To compare the experimental results, Monte Carlo calculations with the PHITS, MARS and FLUKA codes were performed. It was found that these calculated results underestimate the experimental results in the whole energy range.

The ARES-MOX transient program is planned in TREAT by using MOX fuels irradiated in SPA-2 irradiation tests in EBR-II, which was conducted in 1984-1994 under the international collaboration between US and Japan, and have been stored in the current INL. The MOX fuels irradiated up to the maximum burnup of about 130 GWd/t in EBR-II includes the solid FP content of about 10 wt.%. In this program, the objectives are to acquire not only valuable data to develop the FCMI threshold for high-burnup annular MOX fuels but also knowledge about irradiation behavior of FP at transient. The overview of ARES-MOX program, schedule and outcomes expected from fuel performance calculation for annular MOX fuels irradiated in EBR-II will be introduced here.
