Abstract

Shielding calculations for the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) are complicated due to the geometrical complexity of the target system and the large-scale bulk shields around the source target. Three-dimensional shielding calculations were performed by using a newly developed Monte Carlo/Deterministic computational scheme. The neutron–photon fluxes and dose rate distributions in the back wall of the Test Cell and the access/maintenance room are presented and compared with previous shielding calculations. The results demonstrate that this coupled scheme is an useful computational tool for three-dimensional shielding analyses of complex and large nuclear facilities.
