The design of the flowing heavy metal target with free surface under
proton beam irradiation within 0.8-1.6 GeV energy and the 10- 320 mA
current range was analyzed. Following data was submitted
the results of numerical modeling of the heat deposition in the
Pb-Bi eutectic flow due to the penetrating through it the proton beam;
the numerical investigation of swirling flow with free surface;
the calculation of the temperature distributions occurring in the
flowing heavy metal target because of the proton beam energy
the main construction parameters of the flowing heavy metal targets
for the proton beams within 0.8-1.6 GeV energy and the 10-320 mA
the design and numerical investigations of the supersonic wind
shutter which is needed to isolate the vacuum part of the proton line;
the experiments of flowing water with a free surface for modeling of
a flowing heavy metal target.
