Abstract

The BR1 reactor located at the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK•CEN in Mol, Belgium, is a research reactor with a variety of irradiation possibilities. Thanks to its large reactor core, its flexible operation and its different irradiation facilities, this reactor is particularly suited for in-core and ex-core neutron physics experiments and industrial applications. As an MCNP model of the BR1 reactor exists, the experimental work can be supported by MCNP calculations if required.
