1 PASI WP1 PASI meeting April 2013 WP1 progress report D.M.Jenkins

2 PASI WP1 Review of existing and proposed targets for high power neutron production – Review of spallation targets

3 PASI WP1 Review of existing and proposed targets for high power neutron production – Review of other neutron production targets

4 PASI WP1 Future work on requirements for example future high power neutron projects, e.g. neutron spallation, ADS, irradiation, etc

5 PASI WP1 Candidate target materials – Rob Edgecock (RAL) and Stephen Brooks (ASTEC) developing list New ways of using existing materials set – meta materials? – Ali Ahmad (Sheffield University) to set out ideas for figure of merit for materials too – Materials already in use or under study Sample of TS1 tungsten clad in tantalum with David Armstrong (Oxford University) for micrograph initially Eamonn Quinn (ISIS) has samples of hipped tantalum being analysed for oxygen content at Oxford Science Park – Possible new materials and selection for further study ISIS reviewing the use of molybdenum in conjunction with tungsten as a flux trap target Chris Densham’s Group (RHPTG) and Steve Roberts Group (Oxford University) and the RadiATE collaboration

6 PASI WP1 Limits of targets vs requirements – David Jenkins to set out ISIS target design philosophy – Maximum operating temperatures and cooling rates Chris Densham Group (RHPTG) analysis of ISIS TS1 and TS2 target cooling David Jenkins (ISIS) review of existing CHF and BO curves used in ISIS design Ali Ahmad (Sheffield University) to review CHF and BO source material Roger Bennett (RAL) reviewing Binary Ice cooling and possible test programme – Existing data on tensile strength as a function of temperature Results from PSI SINQ Target Irradiation Programme (STIP) – need pulling together perhaps? Roger Bennett (RAL) to look at using his pulsed hot wire rig to add to existing data set but at lower temperatures David Jenkins / Shu Yan Zhang (ISIS) carrying out measurement of residual strain in hipped TS1 target block on Engin-X soon Other sources of data, specialist databases and supplier data


8 PASI WP1 Limits of targets vs requirements continued – Measurement of tensile strength for candidates using RAL test rig(s) Eamonn Quinn (ISIS) - tensile tests carried out by test house on hipped tantalum – results presented at IWSMT Ghent. – Further tensile and fatigue tests planned soon

9 PASI WP1 – Limits of targets vs requirements continued – Study of erosion/corrosion rates of target and target cladding materials. Leslie Jones (ISIS) presented case of TS2 mkI target cladding failure and recovery at IWSMT Ghent Tristan Davenne/Otto Caretta (RHPTG) planning water jet erosion on hipped tantalum samples and cvd tantalum (Tantaline) Eamonn Quinn (ISIS) – starting to review ISIS TS2 target cooling water conductivity changes ISIS Second Target Station Tantalum Cladding Corrosion Problem and Resolution Leslie Jones November 2012

10 PASI WP1 Study/development of novel target condition monitoring systems Roger Bennett (RAL) has proposed using thermal imaging via a fibre optic to monitor target temperatures Assessment of lifetime due to radiation – Study of existing radiation damage measurements and limits Stephen Brooks (ASTEC) investigating simulation of dpa and gas production from MARS code – Future work to identification of materials for which further radiation damage studies are necessary

11 PASI WP1 Radiation damage studies at an existing facility – Investigation of ISIS tantalum clad tungsten target with ~12 dpa Roger Bennett (RAL) has presented poster at IWSMT in Ghent Roger has opened communications with SCK CEN at Mol Belgium re cutting up target and testing too – Existing data from ISIS tantalum target with ~11 dpa which was cut up and investigated in the late 1990s


13 PASI WP1 Future work on: – Neutron capture and delivery Review of existing and planned systems Identify possible improvements for new systems – Shielding, remote handling, disposal, etc, aspects of targets, to be reviewed throughout studies
