A design study for an accelerator-driven spallationneutron source is underway at Los Alamos. The driver, based on the LAMPF facility, produces a l-MW proton beam and is upgradable to 5 MW. After linear acceleration to full energy, an H-beam is accumulated for approximately 1.2 ms in an accumulator ring and then extracted to produce an intense proton burst, less than 1 p.s long, onto a spallation-target system with a 60-Hz pulse rate. The design uses existing infrastructure insofar as possible
