Abstract
Most of the safety criteria for Sodium cooled Fast Reactors (SFR) are local core parameters. Thus, application of 3-D neutron kinetic and thermal-hydraulic coupled codes including detailed modelling of core expansion effects is mandatory for best estimate evaluations of safety margins. A recently published benchmark related to Superphénix offers the opportunity to validate codes and methods for SFR safety assessment. This requires the generation of few-group cross-sections. Since whole core Serpent Monte Carlo models for production of such cross-section libraries would be computationally costly (and the standard 2-D approach may introduce unnecessary large appro...
