Study of neutron scattering in light water in the mistral experiments carried out in EOLE Reactor at CEA Cadarache

Abstract

The interpretation of the reactivity temperature coefficient measured in the Mistral experiments was performed with the Monte Carlo code TRIPOLI4 from 10°C to 80°C. The nuclear data library JEFF-3.1.1 was used in the calculations. Three different thermal scattering laws of hydrogen in light water were tested in order to evaluate the impact in the Mistral calculations: the thermal scattering laws present in the nuclear data libraries JEFF-3.1.1 and ENDF/B-VII.1, and CAB model. A different approach for creating thermal scattering files, as molecular dynamics simulations (CAB model) was assessed.
