Abstract [en]

Criticality, reactor physics and shielding benchmarks are expected to play important roles in GEN-IV design, safety analysis and in the validation of analytical tools used to design these reactors. For existing reactor technology, benchmarks are used for validating computer codes and for testing nuclear data libraries. Given the large number of benchmarks available, selecting these benchmarks for specic applications can be rather tedious and difficult. Until recently, the selection process has been based usually on expert judgement which is dependent on the expertise and the experience of the user and there by introducing a user bias into the process. This approach is also not suitable for the Total Monte Carlo methodology which lays strong emphasis on automation, reproducibility and quality assurance. In this paper a method for selecting these benchmarks for reactor calculation and for nuclear data uncertainty reduction based on the Total Monte Carlo (TMC) method is presented. For reactor code validation purposes, similarities between a real reactor application and one or several benchmarks are quantied using a similarity index while the Pearson correlation coecient is used to select benchmarks for nuclear data uncertainty reduction. Also, a correlation based sensitivity method is used to identify the sensitivity of benchmarks to particular nuclear reactions. Based on the benchmark selection methodology, two approaches are presented for reducing nuclear data uncertainty using integral benchmark experiments as an additional constraint in the TMC method: a binary accept/reject and a method of assigning file weights using the likelihood function. Finally, the methods are applied to a full lead-cooled fast reactor core and a set of criticality benchmarks. Signicant reductions in Pu-239 and Pb-208 nuclear data uncertainties were obtained after implementing the two methods with some benchmarks.
