Title: Simulation of Radiation Quantities for Accelerator-based Experiments

Results of the MARS15 code application to the design of target stations for two experiments – a muon-to-electron conversion experiment Mu2e and the prospective multi-purpose ProjectX Energy Station at Fermilab – are presented. A detailed MARS15 analysis has been carried out focusing on the most important radiation quantities such as displacements per atom (DPA), peak temperature and power density in the coils, absorbed dose in the insulation, dynamic heat load; DPA and neutron volumes, tritium production are also simulated for the ProjectX target, a benchmark of the neutron fission model is presented.
