In the prototype fast breeder reactor Monju, fixed absorber worth was measured as the difference of core reactivity measured by control rod worth between cores with and without a single fixed absorber or three fixed absorbers. In this paper, the measurements are evaluated in detail, and their reliability and usefulness as validation data are investigated through a comparison with calculations using the latest neutronics design methodology developed at Japan Atomic Energy Agency. Calculated-to-experiment values and their uncertainties of fixed absorber worth were 1.00 ± 0.05 and 1.02 ± 0.04, respectively. Through this study, the measurements and calculations were found consistent and reliable.
