Report on neutronic design calculational methods

not registered; not registered; not registered; not registered

This report describes the neutronic design calculational methods used in Fuel Design and Evaluation Group in order to inform other related sections of FBR core analysis technology and hand down the technology. Especially we show the neutronics calculation procedures used for the conceptual design study of the advanced core with 127 pin bundle for MONJU that has been carried out in our group. The topics include effective cross section preparation calculations, two-dimensional depletion calculations, three-dimensional diffusion calculations, reactivity coefficient calculations, and control rod worth calculations. The calculational methods shown in this report are the standard neutronics calculation methods employed in our group at the moment. However, the improvement of calculation codes, the reduction of correction factors and uncertainties for design using the nuclear data obtained in the start-up test for MONJU and so on, and the update of nuclear data file will be planned in order to improve evaluation accuracies. Those may change the neutronic design calculational methods, but we decided to describe the present standard calculational methods in our group from the viewpoint of sharing information in JNC.
