Abstract: A spallation target system is a key component to be developed for an accelerator-driven system (ADS). It is known that a 15-25 MW spallation target is required for the practical size of an ADS. Although there have been some design studies for small power spallation targets, that is, less than 10 MW, designs of high power target systems for ADS are relatively rare. The design of a 20 MW spallation target is very challenging because more than 60% of the beam power is deposited as heat in a small volume of the t…
