3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

ORIGEN-ARP was developed for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy to satisfy a need for an easy-to-use standardized method of isotope depletion/decay analysis for spent fuel, fissile material, and radioactive material. It can be used to solve for spent fuel characterization, isotopic inventory, radiation source terms, and decay heat.

This release of ORIGEN-ARP is a standalone code package that contains an updated version of the SCALE-4.4a ORIGEN-S code. It contains a subset of the modules, data libraries, and miscellaneous utilities in SCALE-4.4a. This package is intended for users who do not need the entire SCALE package.

ORIGEN-ARP 2.00 (2-12-2002) differs from the previous release ORIGEN-ARP 1.0 (July 2001) in the following ways:

1.The neutron source and energy spectrum routines were replaced with computational algorithms and data from the SOURCES-4B code (RSICC package CCC-661) to provide more accurate spontaneous fission and (alpha,n) neutron sources, and a delayed neutron source capability was added.
2.The printout of the fixed energy group structure photon tables was removed. Gamma sources and spectra are now printed for calculations using the Master Photon Library only.

4. METHODS

ORIGEN-ARP is an automated sequence to perform isotopic depletion / decay calculations using the ARP and ORIGEN-S codes of the SCALE system. The sequence includes the OrigenArp for Windows graphical user interface (GUI) that prepares input for ARP (Automated Rapid Processing) and ORIGEN-S. ARP automatically interpolates cross sections for the ORIGEN-S depletion/decay analysis using enrichment, burnup, and, optionally moderator density, from a set of libraries generated with the SCALE SAS2 depletion sequence. Library sets for four LWR fuel assembly designs (BWR 8x8, PWR 14x14, 15x15, 17x17) are included. The libraries span enrichments from 1.5 to 5 wt% U-235 and burnups of 0 to 60,000 MWD/MTU. Other libraries (e.g., DLC-210) are available from RSICC. SCALE users can generate their own libraries for other fuel assembly designs. The interpolated cross sections from ARP are passed to ORIGEN-S to perform the depletion/decay calculations. The ORIGEN-ARP sequence includes the post-processing utility module OPUS to generate ASCII plot data files and the PlotOPUS Windows GUI to plot the data.

ORIGEN-S uses the matrix exponential method to solve a large system of coupled, linear, first-order ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients. This method is supplemented by a generalized form of the Bateman equations for the concentrations of short-lived nuclides.
