Title: Development of the V4.2m5 and V5.0m0 Multigroup Cross Section Libraries for MPACT for PWR and BWR

Abstract

The MPACT neutronics module of the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL) core simulator is a 3-D whole core transport code being developed for the CASL toolset, Virtual Environment for Reactor Analysis (VERA). Key characteristics of the MPACT code include (1) a subgroup method for resonance selfshielding and (2) a whole-core transport solver with a 2-D/1-D synthesis method. The MPACT code requires a cross section library to support all the MPACT core simulation capabilities which would be the most influencing component for simulation accuracy.
