RHOBURN: A NUCLEAR REACTOR CODE FOR CALCULATING BURNUP AND OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS FOR THE LPTR

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The RHOBURN program that determines various parameters for the Livermore Pool Type Reactor using a matrix of 840 cells, stored in two-dimensional form, is described. The code calculates the burnup of U/sup 235/on the basis of the megawatt days run during a fuel cycle and as a function of the neutron flux and fuel inventory in each of the 840 homogeneous cells in the reactor core. The thermal utilization and various other parameters for each core, and values for calculating the reactivity change between different cores can also be obtained. RHOBURN is written in Fortran for the IBM 7094, to ... continued below
