Example Input File for the TRANSURANUS Platform

Collection: TRANSURANUS : Transuranus Fuel performance code 

Description

This is an example input file for the TRANSURANUS fuel performance code, to demonstrate TRANSURANUS users the structure and content of an input file. TRANSURANUS is a key instrument for the thermal, mechanical and neutron-physical analysis of a cylindrical fuel rod in nuclear reactors. TRANSURANUS combines the interacting phenomena by taking into account all relevant thermal, mechanical and isotopic properties of nuclear fuel – most of them changing during reactor operation or long-term storage. This input file has been created with the Transuranus Input Editor V1M1J14 1-0 - November 2014.

TRANSURANUS fuel performance code
URL 
  • The TRANSURANUS fuel performance code is a key instrument for the thermal, mechanical and neutron-physical analysis of a cylindrical fuel rod in nuclear reactors. Therefore, it combines the interacting phenomena by taking into account all relevant thermal, mechanical and isotopic properties of nuclear fuel - most of them changing during reactor operation or long-term storage. The code is applied for design as well as for licensing of nuclear fuel - by various research centres, universities, nuclear safety authorities and industrial partners across Europe.

  • Abstract

    This paper gives an overview of the new ‘Fuel Rod Analysis Toolbox’, which is a program for the pre-processing of input data for fuel performance codes with a graphical user interface under Windows. It consists of three different modules that can handle several tasks such as data condensation, merging and synchronization. It can reduce the amount of data, hence the computation time of fuel performance codes and reduce the time required to prepare input files for complex experimental data sets, or prepare the input files on the basis of detailed code calculations carried out by neutronics or thermo-hydraulics codes applied for safety analysis reports. It is proposed to be used as a common basis to generate input files for fuel performance code validation on the basis of the experimental data included in the International Fuel Performance Experiments database of the IAEA and the OECD-NEA in the frame of benchmarks such as FUMAC.
