Abstract

The shielding and activations of a meson factory are estimated by computing the emission spectra of the neutrons produced, and using these spectra to estimate the necessary shielding and the probable activation of the accelerator caused by the captured neutrons. The technique used in making these estimates is explained. It is assumed that a meson factory has an internal circulating beam current of 100 μA of 450-, 600-, or 850-MeV protons. This beam will be assumed to hit an aluminium target of 100 g/cm 2.
