SHIELDING AND CRITICALITY

The NEA also maintains a shielding and criticality database for the validation and benchmarking of methodologies for modelling different nuclear systems. For example, the database includes data from the integral shielding experiments (SINBAD). New editions of the database are being continually released. With regard to advanced technologies, radiation shielding for accelerator facilities has been the study of a recent workshop hosted by the Stanford Accelerator Centre, (NEA Annual Report, 2002). For criticality, the International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP) database, is also being developed and contains several thousands of benchmark specifications for critical or near-critical configurations.
