For fission cross section and prompt fission neutron spectrum, which largely influence core characteristics of a fast reactor, we have performed experimental and analytical studies for developing an advanced technique to measure absolute fission cross section and neutron fission spectrum for actinide nuclides such as Np237. As the results, we could develop an advanced technique, which combines a normalization technique for the well-known differential cross section and a correction method by a Monte-Carlo code for sample effects. This advanced technique accurately provides both absolute fission cross section and prompt fission neutron spectrum individually. By employing this technique, in this study, we have measured for three actinides ($$^{237}$$Np, $$^{232}$$Th and $$^{233}$$U), then, have obtained the fission cross sections and fission spectrum parameter data for those nuclides. Furthermore, we have also performed an analytical study to examine sensitivity of fission spectrum parameter to core multiplication factor by using the standard calculation code for a first reactor.

Investigation was made on the follwing three themes as a part of the improvement of reactor physics analysis method for FBR with various core concept. Part 1: Investigation of Error Estimation of Neutron Spectra in FBR and Suggestions to Improve the Accuracy. In order to improve the spectrum unfolding method used in fast experimental reactor JOYO, a trial was made to evaluate the error in the estimated neutron spectrum, cause by cause. And the evaluated errors were summed up to obtain the most probable and reasonable error as possible. The summed up error was found relatively small compared to the error caused by the uncertainty of cross section data: most of the error in the spectrum unfolding method can be attributed to the error in cross sections. It was also found that the error due to the fission spectrum causes a considerable error in the high energy neutron spectrum which is over several MeV. Part 2: Study on Reactor Physics Analysis Method for Gas-Cooled FBR. In gas-cooled FBR, the portion of coolant channels in core volume is larger than sodium-cooled FBR. This leads to strong neutron streaming effects. For sodium-cooled FBR, several methods were proposed to evaluate the neutron streaming effect, however, these methods can not be used directly to gas-cooled reactor because the direction dependent diffusion coefficient becomes infinitive along the direction pararel to the coolant chammel. In this study, a new method is proposed to evaluate the neutron streaming effect, based on the method taking the axial buckling into consideration, which method was originally proposed by K$"o$hler. Part 3: Study on Reactor Physics Analysis Method for Water-Cooled FBR An investigation was made on low-moderated water-cooled FBR, on the point that the ordinary used analysis method for FBR may give considerable difference in results in such core. In light water reactors, it is well known that the space dependence of self-shielding effect of heavy nuclides are considerably ...
