dc.description.abstractThe Transient Reactor Test Facility is a nuclear research reactor operated by the Idaho National Laboratory. It was used for the testing of nuclear reactor fuels and materials from 1959 until 1994. It has remained inactive since its shutdown in 1994. Recently, the Department of Energy has begun preparations to restart the facility. This restart will be accompanied by many potential changes to the core and facilities. As such, a reliable model of the core is needed to facilitate the core modifications and subsequent experiment simulations. This paper details the creation of a model made to fulfill this need.
