Russian-US collaboration on implementation of the active well coincidence counter (AWCC)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The feasibility of using a standard AWCC at the Obninsk IPPE has been demonstrated through active measurements of single UO{sub 2} (36% enriched) disks and through passive measurements of plutonium metal disks used for simulating reactor cores. The role of the measurements is to verify passport values assigned to the disks by the facility, and thereby facilitate the mass accountability procedures developed for the very large inventory of fuel disks at the facility. The AWCC is a very flexible instrument for verification measurements of the large variety of nuclear material items at the Obninsk IPPE and other Russian facilities. Future ... continued below

Description

The feasibility of using a standard AWCC at the Obninsk IPPE has been demonstrated through active measurements of single UO{sub 2} (36% enriched) disks and through passive measurements of plutonium metal disks used for simulating reactor cores. The role of the measurements is to verify passport values assigned to the disks by the facility, and thereby facilitate the mass accountability procedures developed for the very large inventory of fuel disks at the facility. The AWCC is a very flexible instrument for verification measurements of the large variety of nuclear material items at the Obninsk IPPE and other Russian facilities. Future work at the IPPE will include calibration and verification measurements for other materials, both in individual disks and in multi-disk storage tubes; it will also include training in the use of the AWCC.
