Criticality Calculations

Criticality safety in all areas of the fuel cycle

The safe operation of a nuclear plant requires the intensive examination of criticality states in all areas of the fuel cycle. The range of services offered by Siempelkamp NIS includes the provision of the safe handling of nuclear fuels in the facilities of the nuclear fuel cycle. In order to prove the compliance with legally specified exposure dosage limits when handling radioactive substances, corresponding neutron balances are compiled. Of course, this also includes shielding calculations for demonstrating compliance with statutory regulations, such as for interim storage and transport containers.

Our experts support your facilities in all fields of nuclear physics. We are your reliable partner with nearly four decades of experience in in-core fuel management, fuel disposal, and in criticality and shielding calculations.
