Title: RIA Experimentation Benchmark

Abstract

Significant developments have been applied to the Bison code to make it capable for Reactivity- Initiated Accident (RIA) simulations. This report documents efforts to demonstrate the current Bison capabilities for an RIA simulation with a comparison to experimental and benchmark data. A number of CABRI REP and CIP cases have been modeled and compared to experimental and other code prediction results. This work shows that Bison is capable of predicting thermal, mechanical, and fission gas release data in agreement with the experimental results and other fuel performance code predictions.
