# Analysis of hafnium configuration of FLUOLE-2 program

Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of the hafnium configuration of FLUOLE-2 program. FLUOLE-2 is a set of benchmark-type experiments dedicated to neutron attenuation analysis with the aim of improving the TRIPOLI-4$^®$ Monte Carlo code validation and industrial neutron physics scheme. The CEA developed this program, with the support of EDF, in order to be representative of 900 and 1450 MWe Pressurized Water Reactors operated in France. For that purpose, different stainless steel structures have been designed and appropriately positioned inside the EOLE facility located at Cadarache CEA center. EOLE is a pool type zero power reactor, composed of a cylindrical aluminum vessel with an overstructure of stainless steel, that is able to contain various types of core and related structures. The FLUOLE-2 core has been designed as a 29×29 pins square lattice of fuel rods. Different kinds of dosimeters (cobalt, gold, tin, rhodium, indium, iron, nickel, titanium, aluminum, and vanadium) were irradiated inside and outside the core.
