The China Lead-Alloy Cooled Research Reactor (CLEAR-I) is critical/sub-critical dual-models natural circulation lead alloy cooled reactor. This study is to focus on the concern radiation shielding design and analysis for CLEAR-I. The modeling program MCAM and calculation system VisualBUS developed by FDS Team was used based on Monte Carlo method and other coupled methods. As indicated by the results, the dose rate in the reactor plant (outside the containing compartment above the reactor) was below 9 uSv/h during operation and less than 1 uSv/h during shutdown, meeting with the requirements of shielding.
