In this benchmark exercise the goal is to test the current state-of-the-art two-dimensional methods of calculating neutron flux to reactor components against the measured data of the VENUS-1 critical experiment.

It is a "blind" test hence the measured values of the equivalent fission flux at specified Venus locations are not revealed to the participants a priori but will be provided when benchmark results are analysed.

The following documents were included in this distribution package:

  • VENUS-1: Description of Geometry and Composition of Different Materials
  • VENUS-1: Results of Experimental Determination of: Relative Power Distribution and Absolute Level of ReferencePower
  • Results of Experimental Measurement of Vertical Bucklings in the Core and Outside
