The influence of the control rod model on the nuclear characteristics of the HTTR has been evaluated, by creating detailed control rod model, in which geometric shape was close to that of the actual control rod structure, in MVP code. According to refinement of the control rod model, the critical control rod position was 11 mm lower than that of the conventional model, and this was close to the measured value of 1775 mm. The reactivity absorbed by the shock absorber located at the tip of the control rod was 0.2%$$Delta$$k/k, and this was 14 mm difference at the critical control rod position. Considering the effect of refinement of the control rod and the effect of the shock absorber, the correction amount for the analysis value in SRAC code due to the shape effect of the control rod, is -0.05%$$Delta$$k/k in reactivity, and -3 mm in the critical control rod position at low temperature criticality.

In high power proton accelerator facilities, concrete shield can be highly activated, which makes maintenance work quite difficult. So, a low-activationized concrete (limestone concrete) is to be partially adopted as a concrete shield for Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) aiming at reducing $$gamma$$-ray exposure dose during maintenance period. A new quantity, $$^{24}$$Na-equivalent, was introduced as a criterion to assure effectiveness of the low-activationized concrete. In order of its verification, powdered low-activationized concrete and ordinary one were irradiated using FNS at JAERI. The measurements were analyzed by a shielding design code system being used for J-PARC, showing that the calculations reproduce the measured induced activity within a factor of 2. Furthermore, by using the same code system, $$gamma$$-ray exposure dose was calculated for the configuration of J-PARC to find out that $$gamma$$-ray exposure dose by the low-activationized concrete was about 10 times lower than that by the ordinary concrete in a period of less than a few days after operation.
