The three-dimensional Sn code Attila of Transpire, Inc. can use CAD data as a geometrical input directly and deal with assemblies of complicated geometry without much effort. ITER organization has a plan to adopt this code as one of the standard codes for nuclear analyses. However validation of calculations with this code is not carried out in detail so far. Thus we validate this code through analyses of some bulk experiments and streaming experiments with DT neutrons at JAEA/FNS. Analyses with the Sn code system DOORS and Monte Carlo code MCNP4C were also carried out for comparison. Agreement between Attila and DOORS calculations is very good for the bulk experiments. For streaming experiments Attila requires special treatments (biased angular quadrature sets or last collided source calculation) as well as DOORS in order to obtain similar results as those with MCNP, though Attila consumes much more time and memory than DOORS.
