Sugawara, Takanori  ; Nishihara, Kenji ; Iwamoto, Hiroki  ; Oizumi, Akito  ; Tsujimoto, Kazufumi 

In order to perform the parametric survey for an Accelerator-Driven System (ADS) core with the subcriticality adjustment mechanism, a new calculation code system, ADS3D, was developed on MARBLE which is a comprehensive and versatile framework for reactor analysis. ADS3D can calculate the transportation of neutrons, the burn-up performance and the fuel exchange by deterministic method in three-dimensional calculation models. The application of ADS3D was also presented for the neutronics design of the ADS core with the control rod. Through the neutronics calculation, it was shown that the maximum proton beam current was decreased from 20.5mA to 11.6mA by the installation of control rods.
