The reason can be made clear by looking at the temperature at one specific layer in that region, e.g., at layer nine the temperature in case of the concentrated version is higher compared with the nonconcentrated version, which means that the thermal flux perpendicular to that layer is lower and hence, a more thermal resistive layer is created.
The design thermal flux is 5.2 x [10.sup.14] n/[cm.sup.2]/s and the fast flux (here E> 0.9MeV) is 5 x [10.sup.14] n/[cm.sup.2]/s [42].
The oxygen atoms behave differently and tend to greatly impact the transport at relatively small intervals of thermal flux given to the device matrix.
The thermal flux and thermal gradient can be gathered by the synchronous ensemble method at each time [t.sub.i] in Figure 1.
[u.sup.[+ or -].sub.2](x, y) and [v.sup.[+ or -].sub.2](x, y) are the particular solutions under a thermal flux loading.
Let us mention that the usually adopted ideal contact conditions consist in demanding the continuity of the temperature and the thermal flux. Here, we use a relaxation of these conditions and allow certain discontinuities.
To avoid the forward directed high energy shower particles from the proton beam impacting the target wheel, while obtaining maximal thermal flux, the tube is centered around and parallel to the v-axis (i.e., perpendicular to the proton beam).
Streamlines of thermal flux are also represented with white color in the panel.
Here, [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is subgrid scale stress and [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]; is subgrid scale thermal flux. [alpha] = 1/[[PHI].sub.ref] is thermal expansion coefficient, and [[PHI].sub.ref] is the reference temperature.
