Verification of MCNP and DANT/sys With the Analytic Benchmark Test Set

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The recently published analytic benchmark test set has been used to verify the multigroup option of MCNP and also the deterministic DANT/sys series of codes for criticality calculations. All seventy-five problems of the test set give values for K{sub eff} accurate to at least five significant digits. Flux ratios and flux shapes are also available for many of the problems. All seventy-five problems have been run by both the MCNP and DANT/sys codes and comparisons to K{sub eff} and flux shapes have been made. Results from this verification exercise are given below.
