Title: Buffalo light water reactor calculations

Abstract

An important objective of the light water reactor pressure vessel (LWRPV) surveillance dosimetry program is to validate and calibrate dosimetry and damage analysis techniques as well as to guide required neutron field calculations that are used to correlate changes in material properties with characteristics of the neutron irradiation field. As part of this activity, the Hanford Engineering Development Laboratory (HEDL) performed neutron flux calculations in a model of the light water test reactor of the Nuclear Science and Technology Facility of the State University of New York at Buffalo. The purpose of these calculations was to provide a consistent analysis base for projecting radiation damage produced by one reactor facility to that which would be incurred in another reactor facility.
