Advances in Radiation Shielding for Fusion Reactors provides complete guidance on radiation shielding principles and their application to nuclear fusion facilities, incorporating the lessons learnt from the design and construction of the latest major modern nuclear fusion facilities such as ITER. It provides an insight of the main challenges and the computational approach to deal with them efficiently. Although applicable to general radiation shielding problems, specific attention is given to problems associated with conceptual fusion reactors. This includes neutron and gamma-ray shielding in deep penetration and streaming geometries, activation, radio-active waste, occupational radiation exposure and ALARA. Descriptions of shielding issues for fusion reactors, and shielding principles and strategies, and lessons learnt from the conception and construction of ITER Advanced and modern computation methods to predict and analyse radiation fields in 3D to identify shielding needs or validate shielding proposals Revision of the main sources of uncertainty to be considered in these calculations and a methodology to determine and apply safety factors to mitigate the impact of uncertainties
