Svalinn Radiation Shielding Analysis Toolkit

In Norse mythology, Svalinn was a shield that protected the horses that pulled the sun across the sky from the heat of that sun. In much the same way, fusion shielding is necessary to protect the system’s components from the radiation produced by the fusion system they are supporting.

This project includes a variety of tools, methodologies and workflows that are relevant for the nuclear analysis of complex system, including fusion power plant designs, accelerator irradiation facilities and critical reactor systems.
