Abstract

This paper presents the results of neutron and gamma calculations aimed at assessing the feasibility of creating an installation for performing research in the field of NСT at the research reactor IRT-T. Considered aspects of choosing a suitable experimental channel as the basis for the installation being created. The calculation results of possible ways of outlet beam parameters improvement consist of inserting of reflector in channel, BSA with filters and collimator are shown.
