Criticality safety integral experiments
Ongoing

Criticality is the state of a nuclear reactor when there is a self-sustaining chain reaction of fissionable material. Criticality experiments are controlled tests using fissile materials, like plutonium or enriched uranium, brought to the critical point for analysis and benchmarking. These experiments allow criticality safety analysts to use the data to validate calculation tools and cross-section libraries.
