3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

ERUPT is a programme for survey calculations of fuel management on a two-dimensional (r,z) model of  a reactor core. The number of energy groups is two.
Automatic computation of a variety of fuel management schemes is made possible, with and without fuel shuffling.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The execution time is dependent on the number  of mesh points, the iteration number according to the precision required and the output desired at each time-step. For example, a problem with 1950 mesh points will take about 0.7 minutes per time step.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

The program uses 1 library tape (symbolic tape unit 9 for writing the t-distribution at each step thus a calculation which cannot be finished in the given execution time can be restarted with the last registered t-distribution. If this option will not be used, define a scratch tape as dummy library.
