Steady-state neutronics methods for power-reactor analysis
|Publication Date:||1 March 2018|
|ICS Code (Reactor engineering):||27.120.10|
This document provides guidance for performing and validating the sequence of steady-state calculations leading to prediction, in all types of operating UO2-fuel commercial nuclear reactors, of:
- reaction-rate spatial distributions;
- change of nuclide compositions with time.
The document provides:
a) guidance for the selection of computational methods;
b) criteria for verification and validation of calculation methods used by reactor core analysts;
c) criteria for evaluation of accuracy and range of applicability of data and methods;
d) requirements for documentation of the preceding.
