    Abstract

    This presentation shows the modeling work performed for the study of the Self-Interrogation Neutron Resonance Densitometry (SINRD). This technique is considered for the safeguards verification of spent fuel. The presentation first gives an overview of the previous work on SINRD, together with the description of the SCK-CEN approach for the study. The main results from the modeling identified a sef of filters that can be used for the implementation of the technique, and also assessed the sensitivity of SINRD to the Pu239 content in the fuel. Moreover, Pu239 fission chamber proved to be the most promising detector to be used for the measurement.
