Presentation Transcript

Potential problems with the high temperature, 1cm diameter, tungsten target(s)

Shock:

it seems to be too high for

4MW beam power (50 Hz);

unexplored territory.

Cooling:

peak temperature rise

~ 600 K per pulse;

cooling by radiation –

equilibrium temperature too high

for 4MW beam power (50 Hz).

Next pages show a few late-night thoughts (with a little help from MARS and ANSYS) about the possibility to use the target(s) at the room temperature.

This would (almost) eliminate the fear of shock effects (material is ‘stronger’) so the cooling scheme becomes the main concern.

Forced cooling has to be included (this could be difficult) but the problem of high stress persists (could be even worse).

“Best yield”

For cooling schemes such as natural convection (air, water), forced convection (air, water, perfluorocarbons), spray cooling (perfluorocarbons) the heat transfer coefficients are well below 1 W/cm2K.

Candidates:

FC77 (poor thermal properties),

glycol-water mixture

or ‘pure’ water.

The question is: Can we reach the heat transfer coefficient of 8 W/cm2K needed for the scenario of 200 x 1cm diameter target by using the impinging water jet(s)?

Minimal value of the heat transfer coefficient needed to remove heat from the target between the pulses as a function of the cooling time (number of targets)

Number of

targets

ANSYS result for the

“Best yield” scenario

Only solution: impinging liquid jet(s).

Heat transfer coefficient [W/cm2K]

In order to reach 8 W/cm forced convection (air, water, perfluorocarbons), spray cooling (perfluorocarbons) the heat transfer coefficients are well below 1 W/cm2K we need:

Mass flow rate > 20 grams/s;

Jet velocity, v > 10 m/s (more important);

Nozzle diameter (d) and nozzle-to-target separation (S) should be carefully chosen

in order to have the core of the jet as

bigger as possible (4 < S/d < 10);

Higher number of jets instead of single jet

Other (non-negligible) reasons for concern in the case of high velocity water jets:

- Instability of jet(s);

- Geometry of the target (cylinder) – positions

of the nozzles (number of jets);

- Corrosion (should be small for tungsten);

- Additional ‘stress’;

- Erosion (for high velocity jets, v > 5 m/s).

Problem:

How to construct such a complicated cooling system (inside an already non-trivial target concept)?

How to enhance heat transfer:

Jet pulsations,

Surface enhancements.

Even if the the erosion rate for tungsten is 100 smaller than for aluminium, the projected erosion after (let’s say) 1 Million beam pulses is at the level of 0.5 mm (10% of the target radius). And the long term erosion effect is much worse.

Data: scarce, but there are few short duration tests with aluminium and copper (haven’t found data for tungsten)

Erosion, for example
