Investigation of the impact of difference between FRENDY and NJOY2016 on neutronics calculations

Ono, Michitaka*; Tojo, Masayuki*; Tada, Kenichi   ; Yamamoto, Akio*

In this paper, nuclear calculations were performed using the ACE files and the multigroup libraries created by both FRENDY and NJOY, and the impacts on the neutronics characteristics due to nuclear data processing were investigated using those libraries. MCNP was used to compare the ACE files by calculating many benchmark problems including ICSBEP and it was confirmed that the k-eff values are generally agreed with each other within the range of statistical errors. The multigroup cross sections are verified by the BWR design codes LANCR/AETNA through calculation of a commercial-grade BWR5 equilibrium core loaded with 9$$times$$9 fuels. These results indicate that fuel assembly and core characteristics are consistent with each other. From the above investigations, it was confirmed that FRENDY can provide comparable continuous/multi-group neutron cross sections with NJOY.
