In China Lead Alloy Cooled Research Reactor (CLEAR-I), which is an accelerator driven subcritical system, a proton tube inserts into core from the top of reactor. Some neutrons will leak out along the proton tube, inducing structure materials damage and potential exposure danger for workers.

The shielding design and optimization analysis for the proton tube of CLEAR-I was conducted using the VisualBUS system developed by FDS Team in this study. The result indicated that during operation allowed working time at outside containing compartment above the reactor shall not exceed 40 hours per week and entering into containing compartment was forbidden. Above results showed that the design after optimization basically met the requirements of shielding.
