Present Status of Monte Carlo Seminar for Sub-criticality Safety Analysis in Japan

Sakurai, Kiyoshi; Nojiri, Ichiro*

This paper provides overview of sub-criticality safety analysis seminar (July 2000-July 2003, JAERI, total 40 engineers from universities, research institutes and enterprises) for nuclear fuel cycle facility with the Monte Carlo method in Japan. MCNP-4C2 system (MS-DOS version) was installed in each note-type personal computer. Fundamental theory of reactor physics and Monte Carlo simulation including MCNP-4C manual was lectured. Effective neutron multiplication factor and neutron spectrum were calculated for JCO deposit tank, JNC uranium solution storage tank, JNC plutonium solution storage tank and JAERI TCA core. In the seminar, methodology of safety management for nuclear fuel cycle facility was discussed in order to prevent criticality accident.
