The Nuclear Energy Agency has a long history of organising internationally peer-reviewed, evaluated benchmark projects under the auspices of the Nuclear Science Committee and the Data Bank. These include experiments and analytic studies in several domain areas including criticality safety, reactor physics, shielding, fuel performance, spent fuel analyses and more. Resources for the use of these benchmarks include not only the evaluated descriptions of the experiments or analytic systems, but associated materials such as computational models, reference calculation results, correlations between benchmarks and sensitivities of physical parameters to basic nuclear data.
