Abstract
A total of sixty-nine lattices were analyzed. They consisted of eight groups: four groups of light water lattices with varying enrichments in the U-Z35 isotope (1.016%, 1.027%, 1.143% and 1.29%), a group of natural uranium, heavy water lattices, a group utilizing UO₂ as the fuel material, and two groups of ²³³U0₂/ThO₂fueled lattices, one with light water and one with heavy water as the moderator. Each group included lattices with different pitches, moderator-to-fuel volume ratios, fuel rod diameters, and experimental methods of determining the buckling
