Criticality Expermints with Subcritical Clusters of 2.35 Wt% and 4.31 Wt% 2.35U Enriched UO2 Rods in Water at a Water-to-Fuel Volume Ratio of 1.6

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The fourth in a series of Nuclear Regulatory Commission funded criticality experiments have provided data for 2.35 wt% and 4.31 wt% {sup 235}U enriched U0{sub 2} rods at a water-to-fuel volume ratio of 1.6. The results from some 147 critical experiments are presented. They include for each enrichment: {sm_bullet}The critical size of single lattices or clusters of fuel {sm_bullet}The critical separation between sub-critical clusters of fuel {sm_bullet}The critical separation between sub-critical clusters of fuel having fixed neutron absorbers between the fuel clusters {sm_bullet}The isolation distance between fuel clusters {sm_bullet}The critical size of fuel clusters containing water holes and voids {sm_bullet}The ... continued below
