N17, Research Reactors, Reactor Physics, Radiation Shielding & Computational Methods

This committee is responsible for the development of standards for the location, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of all nuclear reactors for training and research, both as mechanisms for investigating reactors per se and as sources of radiation, and excluding reactors designed for the production of electrical energy; standards for the location, design, construction, operation and maintenance of critical facilities; standards for calculational methods and computer codes for use in nuclear-reactor and reactor-physics calculations, including shielding. Input into calculations and codes, such as nuclear cross sections are included in this scope.

N17 consensus committee manages six subcommittees:
