  • PRELIMINARY CALCULATIONS AND RADIATION PROTECTION CONSIDERATIONS ON PROMPT AND DELAYED RADIATION FROM THE D-D OPERATED FRASCATI "TOKAMAK-UPGRADE" TOKAMAK

Abstract

This work presents a preliminary evaluation of the expected dose rate levels from prompt and delayed radiation around the Frascati Tokamak Upgrade (FTU) Tokamak machine, a future fusion experimental device operated with 2-H. Great care is devoted to the machine activation. The dose rate levels from activated materials are calculated by and hoc code, based on a a-priori semi-empirical evaluations of the neutron spectra and fluences. The most relevant nuclides contributing to the dose at different cooling times are identified. Finally, the radiation shielding design the radiation monitoring system and the safely system are discussed.
