Bungau, Cristian, Bungau, Adriana, Cywinski, R., Edgecock, Thomas R., Booth, Christopher N. and Zang, Lei (2015) 5MW Power Upgrade Studies of the ISIS TS1 Target. In: Proceedings of IPAC2015. JACoW, pp. 3253-3255. ISBN 978-3-95450-168-7

The increasing demand for neutron production at the ISIS neutron spallation source has motivated a study of an upgrade of the production target TS1. This study focuses on a 5 MW power upgrade and complete redesign of the ISIS TS1 spallation target, reflector and neutron moderators. The optimisation of the target-moderator arrangement was done in order to obtain the maximum neutron output per unit input power. In addition, at each step of this optimisation study, the heat load and thermal stresses were calculated to ensure the target can sustain the increase in the beam power.
