3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

In order to intercompare the characteristics of the different reactors considered for Pu recycling, in terms of neutron economy, minor actinide production, uranium content versus Pu burning, the NSC Working Party on Physics  of Plutonium Recycling (WPPR) is setting up several benchmark studies. They cover in particular the case of the evolution of the Pu quality and Pu fissile content for Pu recycling in PWRs; the void coefficient in PWRs partly fuelled with MOX versus Pu content; the physics characteristics of non-standard fast reactors with breeding  ratios around 0.5.
The following benchmarks are considered here:
. Fast reactors:
      - Pu Burner MOX fuel
      - Pu Burner metal fuel
. PWRs
      - MOX recycling (bad quality Pu)
      - Multiple MOX recycling
