Material buckling and thermal neutron flux fine structure measurements of the NMSR hot exponential core are described. Fine structure measurements for cold and hot conditions through slab-geometry regions that represented a boron-SS control rod, an aluminum rod follower, and a water gap are described and their results are presented. Preparatory measurements, migration area calculation, and error analysis are discussed in the appendices.(Author)
