Title Validation of a Monte Carlo Based Depletion Methodology Using HFIR Post-Irradiation Measurements.
Publication Date Nov 2009
Media Count 3p
Personal Author D. Chandler G. I. Maldonado R. T. Primm
Abstract Post-irradiation uranium isotopic atomic densities within the core of the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) were calculated and compared to uranium mass spectrographic data measured in the late 1960s and early 70s (1) his study was performed in order to validate a Monte Carlo based depletion methodology for calculating the burn-up dependent nuclide inventory, specifically the post-irradiation uranium.
