Analysis of fast neutron transport in chloride salts using Monte Carlo method
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this paper is to present results of fast neutron behavior analysis within the chloride salts environment using simulations based on Monte Carlo method (MCNP 6.2). Three non-fueled salts (NaCl, KCl, MgCl2) and two salts containing fissile material (UCl3, ThCl4) were studied. Results of this theoretical study will be used for design of an experimental assembly, which will serve to achieve goals of the international research project ADAR (Accelerator Driven Advanced Reactor). One of the project objectives is to investigate chloride salts as potential coolant and a dissolved fuel carrier of advanced nuclear reactor cooled by molten salts and driven by an accelerator.
