Abstract: EURACOS IS AN IRRADIATION FACILITY WITH A HIGH INTENSITY FISSION NEUTRON SOURCE. IT CONSISTS OF AN IRRADIATION CHAMBER SUFFICIENTLY LARGE TO ACCOMMODATE QUITE LARGE MODELS. THIS INSTALLATION HAS BEEN USED TO STUDY NEUTRON PENETRATION IN HOMOGENEOUS MATERIALS WHICH ARE AMONG THOSE MOST COMMONLY USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF ADVANCED REACTORS: IRON AND SODIUM. USING SPECIAL TECHNIQUES (LIKE THE BURNING OF SULPHUR DETECTORS IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SOPHISTICATED SEPARATION OF THE BACKGROUND CONTRIBUTIONS) FLUXES UP TO 130 CM IN IRON AND UP TO 390 CM IN SODIUM HAVE BEEN MEASURED.
