Abstract

The MUSE program [1] is a series of zero-power experiments carried out at the CEA-Cadarache MASURCA facility since 1995 in the 5th European Framework, to study the neutronics of Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS). Among the main purposes of the MUSE experimental program there is the analysis of the possibility to infer the subcritical level of a source driven system using Pulse Neutron Source (PNS) methods, in view of the extrapolation of such methods to an European Transmutation Demonstrator (ETD). In this paper, the MUSE results obtained on a significantly subcritical MUSE-4 configuration are analyzed on the basis of both theoretical backgrounds and corresponding calculation simulations.
