Particle transport calculations in three-dimensional configurations are becoming prevalent in nuclear applications. This places a premium on determining the accuracy of numerical solutions to practical configurations as this might have strong implications on the level of confidence in various design and system analysis activities based on the transport equation. Computational benchmark exercises are essential to shed light on this question and raise awareness of additional issues that influence the performance on numerical methods and computer codes when deployed in modeling complex practical applications.

This is the third in a sequence of computational benchmarks organized by the NEAís Expert Group on 3-D Radiation Transport Benchmarks aimed at comparing the results of advanced three-dimensional transport methods and codes to high quality reference solutions.
