Abstract : The report discusses the nuclear behavior of the SM-1A reactor during refueling with core 4, and the conduct and results of the startup core physics tests on core 4. The report presents and analyzes the data recorded. The core physics tests results are used to check the actual behavior of the core and compare it to the predicted behavior. Various figures and tables are used to illustrate the measured results. (Author)
