Title: The Aspun Project

The Aspun Project A study of pulsed spallation neutron source, that could deliver fluxes in excess of 1 /times/ 10/sup 17/ N/cm/sup 2/-sec began at Argonne in 1981. A review of various accelerator concepts to act as an intense charged particle source to generate spallation neutrons resulted in the selection of a Fixed-Field Alternating-Gradient (FFAG) accelerator as the preferred devices. This paper describes the design and operation of the FFAG Accelerator. 10 refs., 6 figs.
