Short Title: NUCFRG2
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation

Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:

Task in support of the Measurements and Transport Phase 2 Physics Project (ID No. 356).  Development and validation of NUCFRG2 includes completing the coalescence model and fully incorporating it into the odd-even version of NUCGRG2.  Included in this effort will be an accurate theoretical model for estimating the variances of the fragment momentum distributions that includes contributions from intrinsic (Fermi motion) and dynamical (collision) sources.  This work is based on previous theoretical efforts to accurately quantify momentum transfers and fragment momentum distribution sin heavy ion collisions.  Validation will include comparison of results with all relevant, existing experimental data coming from LBNL and to the results from QMSFRG code.

 

Outcome supports Phase 2 Physics efforts to improve models and transport to reduce uncertainty of light ion and neutron production and transport through spacecraft materials and secondary environments on the lunar and Mars surface.
