Title: Neutron Collar Evolution and Fresh PWR Assembly Measurements with a New Fast Neutron Passive Collar

Abstract

The passive neutron collar approach removes the effect of poison rods when using a 1mm Gd liner. This project sets out to solve the following challenges: BWR fuel assemblies have less mass and less neutron multiplication than PWR; and effective removal of cosmic ray spallation neutron bursts needed via QC tests.
