Development of the concept of reactivity measurements as a procedure for correcting the computed values of the reactivity

  • B. D. Abramov

The concept of measuring the reactivity as a procedure for correcting its computed values in an experiment is examined. The new one- and multi-point procedures for correcting the reactivity, which refine and develop existing procedures for minimizing the spatial and other parasitic effects preventing a reliable reactivity measurement, are formulated and validated.
