2 Relating Measured Losses to Measured Activation Measured activations A(t) and losses L(t) are related as follows.. A(T) =  i [ A(0). X i. e -K i T + F i.  T L(t). e -K i( T-t). dt ] where the sum is over produced isotopes i.. X i is the initial fraction of isotope i K i is the decay constant for isotope i and F i is a geometry dependent conversion factor for isotope i The maximum activation A max from running at a constant loss rate L max for an infinite time is given by.. A max =  i ( L max. F i / K i ) If we can determine X i, F i, and K i, we can use L max to limit A max.

3 Determining K i Cool down data from 13-Jan-03 to 27-Jan-03 plus measurements during the long shutdown (10-Sep-03 and 03-Nov-03) Data from each location normalized to have the same average Fit to both a single and a double exponential

4 Lifetime Measurements Fit a double exponential to averaged, normalized data assuming long-lived isotope is 54 Mn ( half life = 303 days) Fitted lifetime of 2 nd exponential is 5.6 days. This is very close to that of 18 Fe (5.7 days) Choice of long-lived isotope is not important; good fits can also be obtained with 57 Co (282 days) or 22 Na (2.6 years) Short-lived isotopes affect measurements taken within an hour or so of beam Assume a short-lived component due to (I forget) with half life 1.8 hours Thus model for a given location has three isotopes and 6 free parameters X i and F i.

5 Determining Maximum Activations Assume only two isotopes K 1 = 1.24E-1 and K 2 = 2.46E-3. also X 1 = 1 – X 2 Assume that the asymptotic isotope mixture is 50:50 for all locations i.e. F 1 / K 1 = F 2 / K 2 => F 2 = F 1. ( K 2 / K 1 ) Use two activation measurements to constrain F 1 … F 1 = [ A T – A O.(1 - X 2 ). e -K 1 T - A O. X 2. e -K 1 T ] / [ S 1 T + S 2 T. K 2 /K 1 ] S i T =  T L(t). e -K i( T-t). dt S i T is determined by using D44 to obtain BLM readings (B:BLxxx0) at ~1 minute intervals and then calculating weighted sums Either set X 2 = 0.5 (asymptotic assumption) or fit to the recent series of weekly activation measurements Calculate A max for each location using current trip points

6 Fit Residuals

7 Fit Quality vs Location

8 Fit Summary - I Predicted maximum activation is inversely correlated with X 2. (X 0 ) 1 st column: X 2 fixed at 0.5 or value where A max is less than the maximum measured activation. 2 nd column: X 2 is fitted. is r.m.s. of fractional fit residuals not constrained to be zero Red numbers correspond to A max > 200 mr/hr and good fit ( < 0.2 )

9 Fit Summary - II Predicted maximum activation is inversely correlated with X 2. (X 0 ) 1 st column: X 2 fixed at 0.5 or value where A max is less than the maximum measured activation. 2 nd column: X 2 is fitted. is r.m.s. of fractional fit residuals not constrained to be zero Red numbers correspond to A max > 200 mr/hr and good fit ( < 0.2 )
