Nuclear power production can benefit from the development of more comprehensive alternatives for dealing with long-term radioactive waste. One such alternative is an accelerator-driven subcritical reactor (ADSR) which has been proposed for both energy production and for burning radioactive waste. Here we investigate the effects of the size of the ADSR spallation target on the total neutron yield integrated over the neutron energy and emission angle. The contribution to the total neutron yield from the (n, xn) neutron interactions is evaluated at proton beam energies between 0.4 and 2 GeV. Calculations have been carried out with the GEANT4 simulation code using the Liege intranuclear cascade model and the results are compared to the the LAHET/MCNP code package predictions.
