Another important piece; One point burnup calculation code as a Killer Application

Suyama, Kenya; Yokoyama, Kenji

We have developed numerous neutronics calculation codes in Japan. However, development of the one-point burnup calculation code which replaces the still widely used ORIGEN2 code has not been successful. The one point burnup code is indispensable to evaluate the characteristics of the used nuclear fuel increasing in Japan, and it uses all evaluated nuclear data including the fission yield and decay data as well as cross section data. It means that it could be the Killer Application in the field of the nuclear data and neutronics code. This report describes the necessity of the one point burnup calculation code development in Japan and required function and performance which have been considered by authors.
