Mendius, P. W. (n.d.). A Suite of Criticality Benchmarks for Validating Nuclear Data. Retrieved from

Introduction: As part of the validation process for MCNP, a suite of nine criticality benchmarks was implemented and documented in LA-12212. Upon review of these criticality benchmarks, several errors were uncovered in the benchmark specifications, prompting a review of the benchmark suite and expansion to include a total of 42 criticality benchmarks. Some of the 42 benchmarks were not of high enough quality to be used to validate nuclear data, and could only be used for inter-library comparisons. Results of applying these, and other, benchmarks to the continuous-energy neutron data library ENDF605 have been reported previously. A new comprehensive look at the suite of criticality benchmarks has led to the establishment of a new suite of 86 criticality benchmarks suitable for validating nuclear data.
