Sensitivity analysis for curium isotope concentrations of light water reactor mixed-oxide burned fuel

Chiba, Go; Ishikawa, Makoto

With a help of the depletion perturbation theory, sensitivities of curium isotope concentrations to nuclear data are calculated for light water reactor mixed-oxide burned fuel. Through the present study, phenomenon of the curium isotope generations during a reactor operation is well understood. In addition, important nuclear data for accurate prediction of the curium isotope concentrations are specified. These information may be helpful to investigate a cause of discrepancy between experimental and calculation values for the curium isotope concentrations.
