3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

THIDA-2 calculates radio- activity, decay heat, and dose rate for a fusion reactor using one-, two-, or three-dimensional models.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Firstly, the neutron flux in and around a fusion device during operation is calculated. Depending on whether one-, two-, or three-dimensional geometry is required, one of the transport codes ANISN, DOT-3.5, or MORSE-CG, is used, respectively.  The neutron flux is used as input for the code ACT4. ACT4 calculates the induced activity, the approximate decay heat, and the delayed gamma-ray source after a pulsed operation of the fusion device. The  Matrix Exponential Method is used to solve the decay chain equations to obtain time dependent nuclide densities. The delayed gamma-ray source serves as input for the transport calculation of the delayed  gamma-ray flux during shutdown. The same transport code is used for  the calculation of the neutron and the delayed gamma-ray fluxes. Finally, the gamma-ray flux is converted to shutdown dose rate, and  the exact decay heat is calculated.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

(i) Sequential decay of two short-lived nuclides cannot be calculated accurately.
(ii) Reactions of neutrons with nuclear reaction products are not considered.
(iii) Changes in neutron flux caused by transmutation cannot be treated in a single calculation.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

With 116 spatial mesh point: 5 min. for activated nuclide distribution; 6.5 min. for gamma-ray dose distribution.
NEA 0869/01: NEA-DB executed the test cases on IBM 3084Q. The following CPU times were required: ACT3: 4 min 37 sec; GSOURCE: 0.86 sec; ANISN: 3 min 09 sec.
NEA-0869/02
NEA-DB ran the test case included in this package on an IBM 3083 computer. The following execution times were required for the different steps: Generate GICX40 library: 15.2 secs; generate GROUPIN library: 12.6 secs; 1-dimensional calculation: 10.4 secs (ANISN, step 1), 8.5 secs (ACT4, step 2), 8.0 secs (ANISN step 3), 0.4 secs (APPLE, step 4); 2-dimensional calculation: 0.5 secs (x-sec edit, step 1), 195.3 secs (DOT3.5 step 2), 27.5 secs (ACT4, step 3), 0.7 secs (x-sec edit, step 4), 182.0 secs (DOT3.5, step 5), 0.7 secs (APPLE, step 6); 3-dimensional calculation: 388.9 secs (MORSE-I, step 1), 3.0 secs (ACT4, step 2), 240.0 secs (MORSE-I, step 3), 56.0 secs (TOPIC, step 4).

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

Data transmissions between codes are done using scratch devices. In the radioactivity calculation by ACT4, in  addition to standard input and ouput devices, 4 scratch devices are  used for data libraries and neutron flux input; one scratch device is used to write gamma-ray source; and 4 storage devices are required for data manipulation.
NEA 0869/01: Main storage requirements on IBM 3084Q are 159K bytes (GSOURCE); 1475K bytes (ANISN).

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

The following data libraries (included in the THIDA-2 system) are required by THIDA-2 to calculate the shutdown dose rate:
(1) for the neutron transport calculation, a 42-group neutron cross  section library, which is part of the coupled 42-group neutron and 21-group gamma-ray cross section library GICX40;
(2) a transmutation and decay chain data library, CHAINLIB;
(3) a 42-group transmutation cross section data library, CROSSLIB, which has the same energy group structure as GICX40;
(4) a 54-group gamma-ray cross section library, GROUPIN, for delayed gamma-ray transport calculations for energies from 0.03 MeV to 3.0 MeV. A 78-group gamma-ray cross section library for energies up to 7.6 MeV may optionally be used;
(6) gamma-ray flux to dose rate conversion data, GFLXDOSE.
