The goal of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Working Party on Nuclear Criticality Safety (WPNCS) Subgroup on Experimental Needs for Criticality Safety Purposes (SG-5) was to highlight the needs of integral experiments and to identify the available experimental facilities where integral experiments could be performed. Subcritical, critical and supercritical experiments were considered as they contribute to code and nuclear data validation and criticality accident study. Such experiments also play a role in the bias and uncertainty estimation for safety issues.
