Abstract


ABSTRACT

In APEX fusion reactor model, the first solid wall has been replaced with fast flowing thin liquid wall layer. Liquid wall has a large potential to enhance the vision of fusion. Because, liquid wall usage can increase life time of the structure to that of the reactor by decreasing failures on the structural materials, and also allows high neutron wall load (>10 MW/m2) (1), (2), (3), (10). In this study, design and calculations of APEX were carried out as 3-D torus by using MCNP- 4B computer code. Molten salt Flibe (F, Li, Be) was taken as liquid wall. In liquid first wall concept, it has been seen that the usage of Flibe is advantageous.
