Abstract

"Two modified subcritical multiplication methods for measuring the reactivity worth of control elements were developed and investigated. The first involved the calibration of a subcritical count interval by the asymptotic period method. The second involved the calibration of a subcritical count interval by a rod interchange with the reactor regulating rod which had previously been calibrated by the asymptotic period method. The accuracy of these methods is relatively poor. this inaccuracy is due to shadowing effects and to the spatial harmonics which exist in the core. An investigation of the spatial harmonics to determine the best location for the neutron detector is needed"--Abstract, page ii.
