Title: Calculations in Support of JAEA ZEUS Experiments

A comparison of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s model for measuring Pb void reactivity with the JAEA. Comparison: •Stacking of HEU/Pbslightly off based on different “unit stack”composition.•LANL model has no “top plate”•LANL model does not have•Small difference in Pb/Al plates: 1.212 (JAEA) cm vs 1.2cm (LANL).•Material uncertainties•Composition of Pb is the largest uncertainty. Other issues could be in composition of upper reflector, lower reflector and corner and side reflectors
