This paper describes the development of a 3-d high-fidelity multi-physics pin-by-pin neu-tronic and sub-channel thermal hydraulic model of a SVEA-96 Optima2 fuel assembly for the coupled code system TORT-TD/CTF. No pin power reconstruction is applied. Detailed descriptions are given on (a) the generation of few-group parameterized pin cell-homogenized cross section data using HELIOS, (b) the 3-d neutronic pin-by-pin and ther-mal-hydraulic sub-channel model of a single SVEA-96 Optima2 assembly and its qualifica-tion by Monte Carlo models using Serpent, (c) coupled steady-state results for a single as-sembly and (d) coupled steady-state and transient simulations of a 4-by-4 mini core model of SVEA-96 Optima2 assemblies in a partially rodded state.
Key words: Pin-by-pin TORT-TD / sub-channel CTF / coupled code / transient / neutron transport
