Abstract : The Brookhaven National Laboratory Reactor Physics Group is measuring the pile parameters of a series of light water moderated, slightly enriched uranium lattices. We are measuring epsilon, p, f, M-sq, E-sq for three different sizes of rods, three different enrichments, and five different water to metal ratios. In order to expand this investigation we decided to measure some of the parameters of a light water natural uranium lattice. The lattice we chose has a uranium rod size of 1.1" diameter, and a water to uranium volume ratio of 1.5.
