The search for neutron-antineutron oscillations is currently of great interest as a process with baryon number violation. The results of the Monte Carlo simulations of the experiment based on the storage of ultracold neutrons in a material trap and of the experiment at cold neutron beam are presented. The possibilities of increasing the sensitivity of the experiment due to the accumulation of the antineutron phase in the collisions of neutrons with the walls are considered.
