Integral Experiments Data for Model and Code Validation:

The home page for Compilations and Evaluations has been updated concerning:
  • The 2006 edition of the International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP) has been released in September. It contains now experimental data for 3955 critical configurations.
  • The International Fuel Performance Experiments Database (IFPE) contains 1183 cases (6 June 2006).
  • The Shielding Benchmark Experiments Database (SINBAD) includes 38 Reactor Shielding-27 Fusion Neutronics Shielding-, and 15 Accelerator Shielding-Experiments. (last update: 28 August 2006).
  • The first edition of the  International Handbook of Evaluated Reactor Physics Benchmark Experiments ( IRPhE) was published in March 2006 and contains reactor physics benchmark specifications that have been derived from experiments that were performed at various nuclear experimental facilities around the world. The next edition, with new experimental data is scheduled for March 2007.
  • The experimental data and reports from recent projects operated under the auspices of the Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) have been added to the Data Bank. (These comprise the CABRI REPNa series , the SETH Project and the PSB-VVER Project ). These data are subject to restrictions for their distribution at this stage. The reports and data from the RASPLAV project are available to organisations from OECD member countries and from the Russian Federation
