Abstract

In the last years, spallation reactions have increasing in several works and research applications. They are applying as optimum neutron sources investigations or for energy production and nuclear-waste transmutation in accelerator-driven systems. In this paper, a series of Monte Carlo calculations using the MCNP-6 code performed to calculate, identify the behavior and number of proton-produced neutrons and photons.

Keywords:
