Özet

The physical behavior of integral data in an infinite medium has been evaluated for incident fusion neutrons with the help of the 3-D Monte Carlo Code. In a fusion reactor blanket with finite dimension, the integral quantities will be more or less different from the infinite medium results, depending on the neutron leakage fraction. Design studies foresee reduction of the neutron leakage out of the blanket to very low levels in order to prevent nuclear heating in superconducting fusion magnets and to keep all neutrons primarily in the coolant. The most important materials in fusion technology, namely tritium, beryllium, lead, and uranium have been investigated in an infinitive medium.
