Neutron and proton yields. spatial and energy distributions were determined on an electronuclear set-up irradiated with relativistic deuteron beams. The experimental results, acquired using both passive and active methods, are compared with the data obtained using MC simulation. The U-blanket performance in terms of fission production rate as well as plutonium accumulation is discussed. An evaluation between the data obtained using relativistic deuteron and proton beams is presented regarding to study the set-up efficiency to incinerate and/or transmute the actinides and fission products.
