Abstract

This paper presents the change of neutron flux characteristics in the irradiation channels of Dalat reactor after converting from HEU to LEU fuels. The neutron flux characteristics such as neutron flux, neutron temperature, f, and α-factors in the irradiation channels were determined basing on energy neutron spectra calculated by MCNP code.

Keywords: Neutron flux characteristic; MCNP code; HEU fuel; LEU fuel; Dalat reactor
