Abstract

After the EU-FP7-CDT Project, the design of MYRRHA core layouts was further revised to cope with various issues and to address further requests regarding the core management. The revision entailed the change of the fuel composition and the definition of new core layouts, while keeping the former control rod amount and design. This Master thesis deals with the reassessment of the reactivity effects and of control rods performance in the revised MYRRHA critical cores.After the EU-FP7-CDT Project, the design of MYRRHA core layouts was further revised to cope with various issues and to address further requests regarding the core management.
