3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The NEA NSC Working Party on Physics of Plutonium Recycling has commissioned a series of benchmarks covering:
- Plutonium recycling in pressurized-water reactors
- Void reactivity effect in pressurized-water reactors
- Fast Plutonium-burner reactors: beginning of life
- Plutonium recycling in fast reactors
- Multiple recycling in advanced pressurized-water reactors.
The results have been published (see references).
ZZ-WPPR-1-A/B contains graphs and tables relative to the PWR Mox pin cell benchmark, representing typical fuel for plutonium recycling, one corresponding to a first cycle, the second for a fifth cycle. These computer readable files contain the complete set of results, while the printed report contains only a subset.
ZZ-WPPR-2-CYC1 are the results from cycle 1 of the multiple recycling benchmarks.
