Abstract: The ESARDA NDA working group has run a benchmark in order to compare the different algorithms and codes used in the simulation of neutron multiplicity counters. In order to derive the maximum of information and at the same time to allow a large participation, the working group decided to split the exercise in two parts with two participation levels: a full simulation exercise where participants were asked to compute the count rates starting from the basic technical specifications and/or a partial exercise involving the processing of the pulse trains produced by a single laboratory. The results of participants performing the entire exercise allows us to make a comparison among the different Monte Carlo codes for the simulation of neutron multiplicity counters. The results of the partial exercise help to test the available algorithms for pulse train analysis and to derive some important information about the models applied for dead-time correction.
