Determination of the Core Power of a Critical Assembly by Different Methods
- 12 Downloads
Experimental and computational methods of determining the physical power of a critical assembly are proposed. The experimental conditions and results on determining the coefficient of proportionality of the indications of the SCS apparatus and the power of the critical stand are described. The results obtained by different methods are in agreement with one another to within about 20%.
