DNFM calibration analysis with MCNP 4C code:
DNFM calibration: neutron group fluxes produced by 14MeV neutron source moving along VV axis
DNFM calibration: neutron group fluxes produced by 252Cf source moving along VV axis
DNFM calibration: fast and direct neutron fluxes vs toroidal angle for point DT neutron source moving along VV axis
DNFM calibration: relative count rate in case 1,2 and 3 NFM at the divertor for 14 MeV neutron source along VV axis
Crossing of factory test, NTA calibration and operation range
for NFM based on fission chambers.
