In order to understand the uncertainties involved in fuel rod modelling, the influence of various parameters needs to be investigated using probabilistic methods. In this paper the basic probabilistic methods are discussed. Two such approaches are included in the fuel rod performance code TRANSURANUS, the Monte Carlo method and the numerical noise analysis. These two techniques are compared and their capabilities are demonstrated.
