Abstract or Summary
  • The International Handbook of Evaluated Reactor Physics Benchmark Experiments contains detailed descriptions of many different reactor facilities. A large portion of these experiments have not been fully modeled due to the unavailability of computational power at the time of the experiment’s execution. With the advent of renewed interest in Sodium Fast Reactors, many of these experimental results are highly useful to benchmark current neutronic codes for these types of sodium systems. This thesis is concerned with the modeling of the ZPPR-19B using MCNP. Great care was taken to rigorously document exactly how the facility was modeled. The neutron multiplication factor and reaction rate ratios resulting from the MCNP model were then compared with the measurements taken at the experimental facility in order to determine any bias in the MCNP model. These results are useful to reactor designers employing MCNP as a computational tool to design the next generation of nuclear reactors.
