To validate lead (Pb) nuclear cross sections, a series of integral experiments to measure lead void reactivity worths was conducted in a high-enriched uranium (HEU)/Pb system and a low enriched uranium (LEU)/Pb system using the Comet Critical Assembly at NCERC. The critical experiments were designed to provide complementary data sets having different sensitivities to scattering cross sections of lead. The larger amount of the $$^{238}$$U present in the LEU/Pb core increases the neutron importance above 1 MeV compared with the HEU/Pb core. Since removal of lead from the core shifts the neutron spectrum to the higher energy region, positive lead void reactivity worths were observed in the LEU/Pb core while negative values were observed in the HEU/Pb core. Experimental analyses for the lead void reactivity worths were performed with the Monte Carlo calculation code MCNP6.1 together with nuclear data libraries, JENDL 4.0 and ENDF/B VII.1. The calculation values were found to overestimate the experimental ones for the HEU/Pb core while being consistent for the LEU/Pb core.

Fission rate ratios of FCA-IX assemblies as integral experiment for assessment of TRU's fission cross sections

In the IX-th series at FCA, central fission rate ratios for TRU such as $$^{237}$$Np, $$^{238}$$Pu, $$^{242}$$Pu, $$^{241}$$Am, $$^{243}$$Am, $$^{244}$$Cm and $$^{239}$$Pu were measured in the seven uranium-fueled assemblies with systematically changed neutron spectra. The FCA-IX assemblies were constructed with simplicity both in geometry and composition. Taking their advantage, benchmark models with respect to central fission rate ratios had been recently established for the assessment of the TRU's fission cross sections. By virtue of these FCA-IX assemblies where the simple combinations of uranium fuel and diluent in their core regions were systematically varied, the neutron spectra of these benchmark models cover those of various reactor types, from fast to epithermal reactors. As an application of these benchmark models, JENDL-4.0 was utilized by a Monte Carlo calculation code. Several results show obvious discrepancies between calculation and experimental values. The benchmark models would be well suited for the assessment and improvement of the nuclear data for TRU's fission cross sections.
