Commercial utilization of the nuclear energy becomes possible through the controlled fission reaction that occurs within the nuclear reactors. Controlled realization of the fission reaction depends on the neutron number staying constant. This is called criticality condition. In the simplest approximation, the neutrons that trigger the fission reaction can be separated into two groups as low energy thermal neutrons and high energy fast neutrons. This is named two group neutron diffusion theory. In this work, the reactor radius that satisfies the criticality for a given reactor composition has been determined by solving the two group criticality equation numerically. In this manner, the effects of changes in principal and alternate buckling on critical reactor radius have been elucidated in a detailed way.
