RODBURN calculates the power generation density profile in the radial and axial directions and fast neutron flux, and concentrations of fission product isotopes and fissile materials of a single rod irradiated in PWR, BWR and Halden BWR. RODBURN gives an output file which can be read by FEMAXI-V.
RODBURN uses ORIGEN1 library, RABBLE library and other libraries. First, resonance integral is calculated. Then, three group constants are selected and simplified neutronics analysis is performed along the designated power history and rod geometries.
A fuel rod analysis code FEMAXI-V (ver.1) is also released concurrently. RODBURN can give FEMAXI-V the result file, so that FEMAXI-V can read it as one of calculation conditions to determine the power generation density and fast flux in the axial and radial directions of rod.
