Investigation of photoneutron and capture gamma-ray production in Pb and W under irradiation from 16N decay radiation
(Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms; Elsevier, 2015-09)
Lead and tungsten are potential alternative materials for shielding reactor ex-core components with high 16N activity when available space limits application of concrete. Since the two materials are vulnerable to photonuclear ...
Evaluation of candidate materials for SCWR turbine and balance of plant shielding
(Progress in Nuclear Energy; ScienceDirect, 2015-03)
Since the coolant leaving the SCWR core contains an assortment of radioisotopes, it is necessary to identify appropriate materials for shielding ex-core components. Photon attenuation characteristics, photo-neutron production ...
Design and optimization of HPLWR high pressure Turbine gamma ray shield
(Nuclear Engineering and Design; Elsevier, 2015-04)
This work proposes the optimum gamma ray shield thickness around the HPLWR high pressure turbine for different occupancy periods in the turbine building. Monte Carlo method was employed in the design process and only ...
New Measurement of Antineutrino Oscillation with the Full Detector Configuration at Daya Bay
(PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS, 2015-05)
We report a new measurement of electron antineutrino disappearance using the fully-constructed Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment. The ﬁnal two of eight antineutrino detectors were installed in the summer of 2012. Including ...
