Abstract

Integral neutronic data has been evaluated for incident 14.1-MeV (D,T) and 2.45 MeV (D,D) fusion source neutrons in infinite medium for the most important materials in fusion technology, namely for lithium, beryllium, lead, and thorium. The study covers the calculation of the integral tritium breeding ratio (TBR), U-233 breeding rate (when applicable), neutron multiplication rate through (n,x)- and fission- (when applicable) reactions and the heat release.
