FEMAXI-6 code verification with MOX fuels irradiated in Halden reactor

Yamaji, Akifumi; Suzuki, Motoe; Okubo, Tsutomu

The advanced reactor concept of Innovative Water Reactor for Flexible Fuel Cycle (FLWR) has been proposed and being studied to achieve effective and flexible utilization of the uranium and plutonium resources based on the well-developed light water reactor (LWR) technology. In order to design and evaluate the FLWR fuel rod behavior, the uncertainties in the FEMAXI-6 calculations and the key models and parameters for predicting LWR MOX fuel rod behavior need to be evaluated. In this study, the Test-Fuel-Data-Base (TFDB) obtained from the Halden reactor experiments (IFA-597.4 rod-10, rod-11, and IFA-514 rod-1) were used for the evaluations. The maximum discharge burnup was about 40 GWd/tMOX.
