A thermonuclear weapon, fusion weapon or hydrogen bomb (H bomb), is a second-generation nuclear weapon greater sophistication affords it vastly greater destructive power than first-generation atomic bombs, a more compact size, a lower mass or a combination of these teristics of nuclear fusion reactions make possible the use of non-fissile depleted uranium as the. @article{osti_, title = {Calculation of the impurity level in a tokamak reactor with a turbulent plasma blanket}, author = {Tokar, M.Z.}, abstractNote = {The impurity level in a tokamak reactor with a turbulent plasma blanket is calculated. This blanket is a region beside the wall in which plasma transport is enhanced by randomization of the magnetic lines of force. @article{osti_, title = {Computational methods of neutron transport}, author = {Lewis, E.E. and Miller, W.F.}, abstractNote = {This books presents a balanced overview of the major methods currently available for obtaining numerical solutions in neutron and gamma ray transport. It focuses on methods particularly suited to the complex problems encountered in the analysis of reactors. The blanket of a fusion reactor serves to absorb and transfer the energy of the fusion reaction products, and to produce the tritium necessary to refuel the reactor. This report outlines how these Cited by:

and threshold (− MeV) neutrons were performed for each blanket micro-model. The MCNP and MCU code and the neutron data library ENDF/B-VII were used for the calculations. All the calculations were per-formed for two kinds of the neutron source: I is the fusion source, II is the source of neutrons generated by the.   /cnucl cnucl Thomas Telford Publishing /nfr Nuclear fusion reactors Nuclear fusion reactors Thomas Telford Publishing British Nuclear Energy Society and individual authors /nfr NEUTRONICS CALCULATIONS FOR BLANKET ASSEMBLIES OF A FUSION REACTOR S. Blow, V. S. Crocker, and B. O. Wade Material Physics . Tritium breeding and direct energy conversion are key technological problems in the development of practical fusion reactors. Lithium in some form is needed for tritium generation, but certain chemical problems must be overcome. Alternatives to lithium metal should be by: 1.   The study introduces two new features to blanket design: heat pipes and a modular structure. The study relocates the "standard" vacuum wall of a thermonuclear reactor outboard of the neutron-moderating, energy-converting blanket and thus places the entire moderator in a vacuum envelope and in an unobstructed view of the plasma.

Neutron Nuclear Reactions. shielding calculations need data for neutron-induced reactions covering the range of incident neutron energies of interest for the calculation, for all materials Author: Weston Stacey. In fusion power reactors, the breeding blanket will have an additional tritium breeding function, with respect to ITER blanket functions, and so will contain a neutron multiplier material (e.g. Be, Pb) and a tritium breeding material (i.e., a Li-base compound) in addition to one or several coolants and a structural material to contain and Author: N. Baluc.   The Table of Contents for the full book PDF is as follows: Investigation of Neutron and Gamma-Ray Spectra in a Blanket Mock-up of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) An Adjoint Synthesis Method for Neutron Irradiation Estimation on the Vessels of VVER/PWR Reactors; Calculations of a VVER Mockup with MCBEND;. A neutron generator utilizing relatively small plasma pulses which are constantly re-created in the reaction chamber in a conventional manner by injecting pulses of a fuel such as deuterium or deuterium and tritium, in either a gaseous or small solid pellet form, ionizing the same and compressing the same to form a plasma, while surrounding the plasma with a working gas such as hydrogen under.
