Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this paper, we reported the results of the first stage of HTGR fuel element depletion benchmark obtained with BGCore and HELIOS depletion codes. The results of the k-inf are generally in good agreement. However, significant deviation in concentrations of several nuclides between MCNP based and HELIOS codes was observed.
