Title: Verification of MCNP and DANT/sys With the Analytic Benchmark Test Set

Abstract

The recently published analytic benchmark test set has been used to verify the multigroup option of MCNP and also the deterministic DANT/sys series of codes for criticality calculations. All seventy-five problems of the test set give values for K{sub eff} accurate to at least five significant digits. Flux ratios and flux shapes are also available for many of the problems. All seventy-five problems have been run by both the MCNP and DANT/sys codes and comparisons to K{sub eff} and flux shapes have been made. Results from this verification exercise are given below.
