International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP)

ICSBEP Handbook

The work of the ICSBEP is documented as an International Handbook of Evaluated Criticality Safety Benchmark Experiments. Currently, the handbook spans nearly 69 000 pages and contains 567 evaluations representing 4 874 critical, near-critical, or subcritical configurations, 31 criticality alarm placement/shielding configurations with multiple dose points for each, and 207 configurations that have been categorised as fundamental physics measurements that are relevant to criticality safety applications. The handbook is intended for use by criticality safety analysts to perform necessary validations of their calculational techniques and is expected to be a valuable tool for decades to come.
