The solution research reactor "Argus" is described and the main principles of experimental and calculation safety justification are given. The methodology of experimental safety justification is provided using results of going-up experiments at the pulse research reactor "Hydra" and experiments with coolant loss in the primary loop of the research reactor "Argus" cooling system. According to normative documents requirements, the calculation justification methodology is also given using DAREUS computer system intended for modeling the dynamic processes in the cores of solution research reactors. KIR Monte Carlo code is used for the calculations of the point kinetics parameters. Results of some test and emergency calculations are given.
