The whole-core transport code nTRACER has made many advances in recent years. Several innovative cross section treatment methods were developed, a new axial transport solver was introduced for stabilizing the 2D/1D scheme, and substantial computational enhancements were achieved using NVIDIA CUDA and Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL). In addition, gamma transport solver was implemented to predict the power distributions more physically, and the flexibility of the restart calculation was improved using an offline processing code nTIG (nTRACER Input Generator). This paper is the compilation of the recent progresses in nTRACER developments.
Key words: nTRACER / cross section / stabilization / CUDA / gamma transport
