Abstract: COMPUCEA is a transportable system for accurate on-site analytical measurements of uranium elemental assay and enrichment during the physical inventory verification (PIV) in European Low-Enriched Uranium (LEU) fuel fabrication plants. The paper describes the main procedural steps, instrument calibration and performance of the COMPUCEA system, which presently consist of a compact L-edge densitometer and Ge well detectors for 235U enrichment measurements. The performance of room-temperature scintillation detectors, NaI and LaBr3(Ce) has recently been evaluated.
