Description: Memorandum presenting the application of the nuclear-reactor simulator to an investigation of the validity of the customary assumption of uniform distributions of fuel burnup and fission-product poisoning in a reactor core. The two-group calculation results show the effects of the approximation on the reactivity, power distribution, and xenon-135 distribution for a specific power reactor in which the initial power density varied by a factor of approximately 4 over the core volume.
