Advances in Radiation Shielding for Fusion Reactors provides complete guidance on radiation shielding principles and their application to nuclear fusion facilities, incorporating the lessons learnt from the design and construction of the latest major modern nuclear fusion facilities such as ITER. It provides an insight of the main challenges and the computational approach to deal with them efficiently. Although applicable to general radiation shielding problems, specific attention is given to problems associated with conceptual fusion reactors. This includes neutron and gamma-ray shielding in deep penetration and streaming geometries, activation, radio-active waste, occupational radiation exposure and ALARA. Descriptions of shielding issues for fusion reactors, and shielding principles and strategies, and lessons learnt from the conception and construction of ITER Advanced and modern computation methods to predict and analyse radiation fields in 3D to identify shielding needs or validate shielding proposals Revision of the main sources of uncertainty to be considered in these calculations and a methodology to determine and apply safety factors to mitigate the impact of uncertainties

This book provides a systematic and comprehensive introduction to the neutronics of advanced nuclear systems, covering all key aspects, from the fundamental theories and methodologies to a wide range of advanced nuclear system designs and experiments. It is the first-ever book focusing on the neutronics of advanced nuclear systems in the world. Compared with traditional nuclear systems, advanced nuclear systems are characterized by more complex geometry and nuclear physics, and pose new challenges in terms of neutronics. Based on the achievements and experiences of the author and his team over the past few decades, the book focuses on the neutronics characteristics of advanced nuclear systems and introduces novel neutron transport methodologies for complex systems, high-fidelity calculation software for nuclear design and safety evaluation, and high-intensity neutron source and technologies for neutronics experiments. At the same time, it describes the development of various neutronics designs for advanced nuclear systems, including neutronics design for ITER, CLEAR and FDS series reactors. The book not only summarizes the progress and achievements of the author’s research work, but also highlights the latest advances and investigates the forefront of the field and the road ahead.

Fusion magnet technology has made spectacular advances in the past decade; to wit, the Mirror Fusion Test Facility and the Large Coil Project. However, further advances are still required for advanced economical fusion reactors. Higher fields to 14 T and radiation-hardened superconductors and insulators will be necessary. Coupled with high rates of nuclear heating and pulsed losses, the next-generation magnets will need still higher current density, better stability and quench protection. Cable-in-conduit conductors coupled with polyimide insulations and better steels seem to be the appropriate path. Neutron fluences up to 1019 neutrons/cm2 in niobium tin are achievable. In the future, other amorphous superconductors could raise these limits further to extend reactor life or decrease the neutron shielding and corresponding reactor size.
