With the development of nuclear reactor, new complicated designs introduce some challenges for the resonance method in the NECP-X code, which is called as the Global-Local method. There are two limitations of the present NECP-X. One is the geometry modeling limitation, and the other one is that the Global-Local resonance method can only deal with the cylindrical fuel rods in the current version. Therefore, some fuels like plate, annular fuels cannot be calculated in the NECP-X code because of these limitations. To overcome above issues, the constructive solid geometry (CSG) method is developed to model the complex problem, and the capability of constructing and solving the equivalent 1D plate and 1D annual fuel pin based on the framework of Global-Local method, is developed. A set of tests are calculated, including multi-annular fuel problems and plate fuel problems. The results show good accuracy of the new developed resonance self-shielding method.
Key words: NECP-X / Global-Local / complex geometry / CSG
