Development of a Monte Carlo solver Solomon for criticality safety analysis, 1; Implementation of a collision analysis model based on the ACE format

Nagaya, Yasunobu; Hagura, Hiroyuki*

Careful criticality management must be required for the removal of fuel debris generated at the accident in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station; the uncertainties in fuel debris properties such as amount, composition, location, densities, etc. must be taken into account. For determining the policy of such criticality management, it is important to build the fundamental criticality safety database (criticality maps) for as many fuel debris conditions as possible. In order to contribute the building of the database, the development of a novel Monte Carlo solver has been initiated to perform criticality calculations of fuel debris with flexible randomized models. In this work a model of collision analysis with the ACE formatted nuclear data has been implemented and verified with criticality calculations for simple spherical geometries.
