Interpretation of criticality experiments on homogeneous solutions of plutonium and uranium; Interpretation des experiences de criticite sur des solutions homogenes de plutonium et d'uranium

Abstract

Criticality experiments on solutions of fissionable materials have been carried out in tanks of various geometries (cylinder, isolated annular cylinder, interacting annular cylinders); the reflexion conditions have also been varied (without reflection, semi-reflection and total reflexion by water). The range of the studied concentrations is rather large (18,8 to 104 gms/liter). The interpretation of these experiments has been undertaken in order to resolve the problems of the industrial use of homogeneous plutonium and uranium solutions. Several methods the fields of application of which are different have been used: diffusion method, transport method and Monte-Carlo method. (authors) [French] Des experiences critiques sur des solutions de matieres fissiles ont ete faites dans des cuves de diverses geometries (cylindre, cylindre annulaire isole, cylindre annulaire en interaction), les conditions de reflexion ont ete egalement variees (sans reflexion, semi reflexion et reflexion totale par l'eau). La gamme des concentrations etudiees est assez etendue (18,8 a 104 g/l ). L'interpretation de ces experiences a ete entreprise dans le but de pouvoir resoudre les problemes poses par l'emploi industriel de solutions homogenes de plutonium et d'uranium, plusieurs methodes dont les domaines d'application sont differents ont ete employees: methode de diffusion, methode de transport, methode de Monte-Carlo.
