Neutronic characteristics of IRT-3M fuel assembly with dioxide high enrichment uranium (HEU) fuel and uranium-molybdenum low enrichment uranium (LEU) fuel are considered. Results of calculation of irradiated fuel isotope composition are presented. Test problems for IRT cells with HEU and LEU fuel calculated by MCU and MCNP codes are proposed.
