3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

KORIGEN calculates the nuclear  inventory - isotope and/or element concentrations, radioactivities,  heat, radiation - of nuclear fission reactor fuels and wastes, including (alpha,n)-neutrons in vitrified high-active waste, from given initial compositions, irradiation history and decay times.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION:  Matrix exponential method.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM:  None.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Less than 30 seconds for typical fuel irradiation, fuel decay and waste decay.
top ]
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

The included data libraries on the basis of the Joint Evaluated File, Version 1, JEF1, especially allow reliable calculations for large Pressurized-Water reactors (PWR).

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

KORIGEN is an extension of the Oak  Ridge Isotope Generation and Depletion Code ORIGEN. The KORIGEN cross section libraries for Light-Water Reactors (LWR) include the LWR libraries of ORIGEN-2. The burnup-dependent actinide cross sections and burnup averaged cross sections for typical German PWRs  are generated with the Karlsruhe cell-burnup code KARBUS, a coupling of the UK spectral code WIMS and parts of ORIGEN.
