Abstract

The paper is devoted to the construction of a benchmark for the neutron kinetics of a subcritical source-driven system. A two-group diffusion model is adopted in multiregion slab geometry, for a configuration typical of the MYRRHA system proposed by the Mol Nuclear Center (Belgium). The steady-state equations are solved analytically and by Mathematica. The time-dependent solution is obtained by a well-assessed Laplace transform inversion technique. Results are compared to a direct finite-difference numerical solution and also to point kinetics.
