The Working Party on Nuclear Criticality Safety (WPNCS) deals with technical and scientific issues relevant to criticality safety. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to) investigations of static and transient configurations encountered in the nuclear fuel cycle. These include fuel fabrication, transport and storage. The WPNCS's objectives are to:
Currently, the WPNCS co-ordinates five expert groups and the ICSBEP Project.
SFCOMPO 2.0 (Spent Fuel Isotopic Composition) (Spent Fuel Isotopic Composition) relational database
The primary purpose of the International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP) is to compile critical and subcritical benchmark experiment data into a standardised format that allows criticality safety analysts to easily use the data to validate calculation tools and cross-section libraries.
