    An adiabetic and an isothermal rod type calorimeter have been developed. A detailed description of design, construction, instrumentation and handling equipment is given together with the results form calibrations and masurements. Correction calculations of the beat contributes from thermal- and fast-neutron flux reactions in the calorimeter sample and structure are mede in order to isolate the primary Y-heat in each core position. A guide is given on the simplar calculations to be done for a rig design in order to estimate the total nuclear heating. Graphs showing the vertical distributions of the Y-heat in the elements and the experiment holes of DR 3 are included in the report.
