Abstract

The activities performed are: I. A study in how best to minimize the already relatively low radiological impact of a future fusion power station
II. Attention was focused on deriving suitable limits for the concentration of elements which give rize to radiologically significant nuclides rather than a radical re-design of low activation materials. This was achieved by the development of OPTIMAT, a systematic methodology to specify the chemical composition of materials given the desired constrains of reduced activation performance and manufacturing feasibility.
III. Further activation analyses were performed iteratively with Task 4.2 to assess the possibility, by variation of material compositions, for minimizing the quantities of activated materials needing disposal. The materials specified for the three Plant Models were varied only in respect of impurities and minor materials. .
