Abstract

We performed incineration capability modeling on the General Atomics Deep Burn Modular Helium Reactor design (DB-MHR) loaded with fuel manufactured from LWR waste. This paper focuses on several critical neutronic features of the fuel cycle such as neutron spectrums, one-group capture and fission cross-sections and fission to capture ratios of Pu-239. Their impacts on total transmutation capability of the reactor are studied. Different axial shuffling strategies are analyzed. The spatial self-shielding effect is also considered.
