- The safety analyses for the Conceptual Design Activity (CDA) of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) were based on the simplifying assumption that the activation of materials occurs continuously. Since the analyses showed a significant hazard, it is appropriate to examine how much hazard reduction might occur if this conservative assumption were relaxed. This report explores how much reduction might be gained by considering non-continuous operation, that is, by considering plasma burn time, duty factor, and integrated fluence. Other factors impacting activation hazards - material choice, flux, and size - are not considered here.
