Abstract

In the analysis of experimental capabilities for metal cooled reactors, the calculation of neutron flux in irradiation module filled with lead and lead-bismuth was performed and the sensitivity analysis with the influence of nuclear data libraries was carried out. Research reactors, VR-1 and LR-0 were used as the neutron sources. Each reactor is offering the specific features for the possible future experiments and the calculation models were validated on different experiments in the past.

Keywords
