Title: Conjugate Heat Transfer and Thermal Mechanical Analysis for the Fast Spectrum Neutron Source for Materials Irradiation

A conjugate heat transfer and thermal structural analysis was completed, with the objective of determining the following: Lead bismuth eutectic (LBE) peak temperature, free convective velocity patterns in the LBE, peak beam window temperature, and thermal stress/deformation in the window.
