North-Holland Publishing Company PRODUCTION AND BEHAVIOR OF POINT DEFECTS IN PULSED INERTIAL CONFINEMENT FUSION REACTORS

Abstract

A time-dependent neutronics analysis for the HIBALL reactor is presented. The helium to dpa ratio in the ferritic steel structure is found to be sensitive to neutron spectrum softening. The microstructure calculations show that helium diffusivity is a sensitive function of vacancy accumulation from one pulse to the next. A strong coupling exists between the… (More)
