It´s a rather bad idea to use the one precious life source(water) in a shielding, where it can be lost after any physical impact, just wanted to
throw this in. It does not even have to be a big impact..
What happens with small particles in the water (from shielding, calcium etc) when they get hit with a/b/g radiation and decay down the ladder?
Exactly, they might become hot particles too!
You do not want to drink it, I suppose. But then, we could line the inner tanks with DuPonts teflon. Oh wait, the C8...
Do not want to image what happens when parts of the water in the shielding boil away, possibly damaging nearby structural parts and make it a big
floating pressure cooker.
Also, wouldn´t the water start to freeze/boil at some point? You can´t add anti-freeze if you need to recylcle it to drinking water.
