Monte Carlo Calculations of Neutron Fluence Spectra, Activation Measurements, Uncertainty Analysis and Spectrum Adjustment for the KORPUS Dosimetry Benchmark

Barz, H.-U.; Böhmer, B.; Konheiser, J.; Stephan, I.
: The KORPUS irradiation experiment has been used to test and demonstrate improvements of the pressure vessel dosimetry methodology developed in Rossendorf. The Monte Carlo Code TRAMO has been recently supplied with a new data treatment procedure for elastic scattering and with extended geometries. The new code version has been used to accurately calculate absolute neutron fluence spectra at detector positions in the KORPUS irradiation facility at the RIAR in Dimitrovgrad. The influence of used approximations on the obtained fluences was investigated with calculations for different model variants.
The activation rates calculated with these spectra have been compared with results of activation measurements with detectors irradiated at the International Dosimetry Benchmark at the KORPUS facility. Based on the measured data the calculated fluence spectra have been adjusted with help of the adjustment code system COSA3, a newly extended multispectrum version of COSA2. A comprehensive uncertainty analysis was accomplished for the fluence calculations and the measurements.
