In spite of the remarkable progress of computational tools in the last decades, integral experiments in zero-power facilities are still of a great importance in the world for nuclear data validation, licensing of new core designs and education and training. Massimo Salvatores was one of the key persons in the promotion of integral experiments and their analysis since the early 1980s. He initiated many international programs of integral experiments in different zero-power facilities in the world. He expressed a great interest to the integral experiments in the VENUS-F facility that have been performed since 2011 to support ADS MYRRHA and LFR core designs. Some of these experiments and associated calculations are presented in this paper.
