Title: VIM Monte Carlo versus CASMO comparisons for BWR advanced fuel designs

Abstract

Eigenvalues and two-dimensional fission rate distributions computed with the CASMO-3G lattice physics code and the VIM Monte Carlo Code are compared. The cases assessed are two advanced commercial BWR pin bundle designs. Generally, the two codes show good agreement in K{sub inf}, fission rate distributions, and control rod worths.
