Description: Note presenting two-dimensional two-group diffusion calculations performed on the NACA reactor simulator in order to evaluate the reactivity effects of fuel plates removed successively from the center experimental fuel element of a seven- by three-element core loading. The reactivity calculations were performed with two methods: the slowing-down properties of the experimental fuel element were represented by infinite media parameters and the finite size of the experimental fuel element was recognized, and the slowing-down properties of the surrounding core were attributed to the small region.
