This project proposes the development of the preliminary studies on radiation shielding at the core of the High Power Laser System (HPLS) experimental areas (E1, E6 & E5) and at the very challenging (from a radioprotection point of view) dumping areas of the Gamma Beam System (GBS), in an experiment focused approach, by using Monte Carlo (FLUKA) calculations, in a close-to-reality geometrical representation which, to our knowledge, has not been achieved yet. The ultimate goals of this project concern an optimized version of the existent shielding and a proposal of an optimized detection/monitoring system in the targeted areas.
