Project

Integral Experiment Design and Analysis

December, 2016

Problem Statement

Design and analysis of available as well as future nuclear criticality experiments

Technical Approach

Critical experiments are modeled via available nuclear codes and desired calculations such as criticality, shielding, and  uncertainty are performed to understand underlying physics and data assessments

Benefit

Integral experiments will help to identify any gaps or issues within nuclear data and methods. It will be also useful to create a guide for future experiments and analysis by identifying any sensitive or important aspects of the experiments and modeling
