Title: Validation of MF3D for BWR Neutron Fluence Computations

Abstract

The validation of the MCNP-based software package, MF3D, being developed for boiling water reactor (BWR) neutron fluence computations, is currently under way by benchmarking the MF3D computational fluence results against BWR fluence measurements at selected locations between the shroud and the reactor pressure vessel (RPV). This validation is essential to ensure that the MF3D software package is an accurate and useful tool for reliable BWR neutron fluence computations. A summary of typical computed to measured results ratios (C/M ratios) at the 4-deg azimuth is provided in Table I. The computational results obtained using the MF3D package are in good agreement with the measurements, which validates the package as an accurate BWR neutron fluence simulator.
