3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

Contains experimental benchmarks which can be used for the validation
of burnup code systems and accompanied data libraries. Although the
benchmarks presented here are thoroughly described in literature,
it is in many cases not straightforward to retrieve unambiguously the
correct input data and corresponding results from the benchmark
descriptions. Furthermore, results which can easily be measured, are sometimes difficult to calculate because of conversions to be made.
Therefore, emphasis has been put to clarify the input of the benchmarks
and to present the benchmark results in such a way that they can easily
be calculated and compared. For more thorough descriptions of the benchmarks
themselves, the literature referred to here should be consulted.

This benchmark book is devided in 11 chapters/files containing the following
in text and tabular form:

chapter  1 Introduction
chapter  2 Burnup Credit Criticality Benchmark Phase 1-B
chapter  3 Yankee-Rowe Core V Fuel Inventory Study
chapter  4 H.B. Robinson Unit 2 Fuel Inventory Study
chapter  5 Turkey Point Unit 3 Fuel Inventory Study
chapter  6 Turkey Point Unit 3 Afterheat Power Study
chapter  7 Dickens Benchmark on Fission Product Energy Release of U-235
chapter  8 Dickens Benchmark on Fission Product Energy Release of Pu-239
chapter  9 Yarnell Benchmark on Decay Heat Measurements of U-233
chapter 10 Yarnell Benchmark on Decay Heat Measurements of U-235
chapter 11 Yarnell Benchmark on Decay Heat Measurements of Pu-239
