Production of the ORIGEN2 library based on JENDL-4.0 for high temperature engineering test reactor

Kojima, Kensuke; Okumura, Keisuke; Okamoto, Tsutomu; Goto, Minoru

A set of the ORIGEN2 library for High Temperature engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) was newly produced in order to improve prediction accuracy of burn-up characteristics such as spent fuel composition, radioactivity and decay heat. In the library, cross sections and decay data are adopted from JENDL-4.0 and from ENSDF. In the production of effective cross sections and neutron spectrum, MVP-BURN based on the continuous-energy Monte Carlo method and a statistical geometry model is applied to the HTTR fuel with many coated fuel particles. In this way, the double heterogeneous effect of the HTTR fuel can be accurately taken into account. By using the neutron spectrum obtained in the MVP-BURN calculation, infinite dilution cross sections from JENDL-4.0 are condensed to one-group cross sections. The burn-up calculation results of ORIGEN2 with the produced library and those of MVP-BURN with detail modeling and much calculation cost show good agreement for burn-up changes of fuel composition.
