Title: REACTIVITY EFFECTS OF STRUCTURAL MATERIALS IN THE BEM-II B

Abstract

Reactivity effects of 93.2% enriched oralloy, molybdenum, iron, niobium, 310 stainless steel, 304 stainless steel, Inconel X, FeC rAl, zirconium, nickel, nichrome V, and chromium clad with FeCrAl, in the form of foils in the center cell of the BEM-II B minimum void, beryllium moderated critical experiment are reported. Nineteen-energy-level diffusion calculations with cell corrections from both coarse and fine energy detail were correlated with the measurements. The fine energy detail improved the correlation, mainly because resonance self- shielding and flux depression are more adequately treated, and residual discrepancies for the most part can be attributed to inadequacies in the cross section data.
