Abstract

A first tentative analysis of the Halden ultra-high-burnup experiment is presented employing the TRANSURANUS code. The TRANSURANUS high burnup models are briefly explained with emphasis on the new TRANSURANUS-heavy water reactor (HWR) burnup model. At ultra-high-burnup, the trend of the temperature prediction is in disagreement with the experimental evidence and needs further clarification.
