3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

SWAT evaluates isotopic composition of spent nuclear fuel, especially for burnup credit issues by driving codes SRAC95 and ORIGEN2.1 or ORIGEN2.
   
SWAT is an automated driver code system. At the initial development phase, it was constructed by combining source programs of SRAC and ORIGEN2. To overcome the problem associated with code updates, SWAT chose to use system function of UNIX operating system to execute SRAC95 and ORIGEN2. So that, SWAT is independent of development and modification of SRAC95 and ORIGEN2.1.
   
In SWAT, ORIGEN2(82) or ORIGEN2.1 is used for burnup calculations using the matrix exponential method. An updated decay library is included in the distribution. SWAT uses SRAC95 for neutron spectrum and effective cross section calculation in 107 groups, using the collision probability method for given geometry and isotopic composition. One or two dimensional cell geometries are supported in SRAC95.
NEA-1698/02
The main purpose of new package is to run SWAT on several machines not supported in previous package (IA64 under Linux, Windows with cygwin and Sun, ...) and several commercial FORTRAN compiler (Intel, PGI, Fujitsu).

4. METHODS

In calculating the problem-dependent cross section in SWAT, the total burnup history is divided into "burnup steps." Power, boric acid concentration, temperature of each region, and void ratio of coolant are given as history data. For each burnup step, the neutron spectrum and effective cross section are evaluated by SRAC95 using the information given in previous burnup calculation and cell geometry information. The user can select geometry options for the collision probability method in SRAC95.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Resonance absorption calculation with ultra-fine group cross section can not be directly applicable for 2D geometry.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:  Runtime depends on the geometry option, and burnup step.

8. RELATED OR AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

SWAT2ORI2: Program package to produce ORIGEN2 library.
The SWAT distribution does not contain SRAC95. It must be requested as a separate package.
