This work is aimed at characterizing the Megapie target in terms of main contributors to the activity, modification of the chemical composition as well as residue and volatile gas production. Calculations are performed with the nuclear transport code MNCPX2.5.0 coupled to the evolution code CINDER'90. In this work, we provide results for the lead-bismuth and its container. A sensitivity analysis with regards to the different models available in MCNPX2.5.0 as well as the effect of impurities is discussed.
