DISCUSSION MATERIAL

CPS Simulation Status (Gabriel)

CPS configurations (from previous meeting)

CPS Article V0


ACTION ITEMS

  • CPS simulations
  • start discussion on how to make a more general version (flexible geometries, output, etc)
  • Gabriel's ToDo list:
  • Validate model (magnetic fields, materials, geometries)
  • Study influence of density of W powder
  • "egg"-shape shielding
  • re-check all normalizations
  • short write-up on FLUKA conversion factor (David H)
  • Article
  • Implement all comments received so far and circulate new version (Tanja, Rolf)
  • Further optimize for journal publication (David H)


Discussion Details

  • Discussion CPS model and simulations
  • Four configurations implemented
  • Page 5: Radiation level after 1 hour of cooling - results seem to have the expected trends; vertical axis shows mrem/hr (note: target is ~< few mrem/hr)
  • Page 7: prompt radiation seems fine for any of the four configurations
  • FLUKA conversion factor - Parker Reid, David H, and Bodgan benchmarked the fluence 3-4 months ago and found FLUKA/GEANT4 conversion consistent
  • Thoughts on how to generalize simulation - Gabriel and Sean might meet in person to discuss details
  • CPS article discussion
  • Current draft (comments not yet implemented) could benefit from additional optimizations, and in particular separating specifics and general information
  • CPS funding
  • NSF MRI option
  • Possible UK contribution


NEXT MEETING: FRIDAY 11 OCTOBER at 11:00 AM (ET)
