Frequency domain Monte Carlo simulations of void velocity measurements in an actual experimental setup using a neutron noise technique

ABSTRACT Monte Carlo simulations of the void velocity measurement in a light-water moderated critical assembly CROCUS are performed using a continuous energy Monte Carlo code that has a special

DEVELOPMENT OF A NEUTRON NOISE SIMULATOR FOR HEXAGONAL GEOMETRIES

The study of neutron flux fluctuations permits to detect anomalies during the operation of nuclear reactors. To effectively use this technique for nuclear reactor diagnostics, it is essential to

ANALYSIS AND COMPARISON OF APOLLO3

Neutron noise analysis addresses the description of small time-dependent flux fluctuations in reactor cores, induced by small global or local perturbations of the macroscopic cross sections due to

ANALYSIS AND COMPARISON OF APOLLO3® AND TRIPOLI-4® NEUTRON NOISE SOLVERS

The two solvers for the case of fuel pin oscillations in a simplified UOX fuel assembly are compared in view of proposing the examined configurations as a benchmark for neutron noise calculations.
