The neutronics analysis has been carried out for feasibility study of the FALCON-D concept by Monte Carlo N-paticle transport code (MCNP), in order to inspect the cooling performance of in-vessel and ex-vessel components, and a connection pipe between Vacuum Vessel and reactor room. The nuclear heating rate in the Vacuum Vessel was at the same level as that of NBI duct of the ITER. The temperature of the connection pipe was found to be 345·, ·which was smaller than the melting point of structure materials (F82H). Moreover, the radiation damage of the final optics was also investigated. We propose a sliding changer concept for replacement. This method could be adapted for the replacement of one FPY cycle in the final optics system.
