The present report focuses on activities from Work Package 3 related to the development of the calorimetry. In the frame of the Task 3.3. the exploitation of the results of the measurements carried out with mock-up waste drums at CEA Cadarache and SCK CEN with gamma spectrometry, passive neutron counting and using the calorimeter developed by KEP Technologies, was done. SCK CEN also performed measurements with a 200 L real unconditioned waste drum. This document presents the analysis of the results obtained with the different techniques and the combination of the different technics to better characterize the mock up and real drums and reduce the associated measurement uncertainties. Also, some MCNP modelling of the calorimeter and gamma spectrometry were performed in the framework of the performed experiments.
