American National Standard ANSI/ANS-8.6: Safety in conducting subcritical neutron-multiplication measurements {open_quote}In Situ{close_quote}

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Safe and economical operations with fissile materials require knowledge of the subcriticality of configurations that arise in material processing, storage, and transportation. Data from critical experiments have been a principal source of information with which to establish safety margins. However, the lower cost and the expediency of performing confirmatory subcritical measurements on the process floor or in the storage vault resulted in much of the early criticality safety guidance being based on subcritical in situ experiments.
