In this paper, we present a sensitivity analysis of the beta effective to nuclear data for the UM17x17 experiment that has been performed in the EOLE reactor. This work is carried out using the APOLLO3® platform. Regarding the flux calculation, the standard two-step approach (lattice/core) is used. For what concerns the delayed nuclear data, they are processed to be directly used in the core calculation without going through the lattice one. We use the JEFF-3.1.1 nuclear data library for cross-sections and delayed data. The calculation of k-effective and beta effective is validated against a TRIPOLI4® one while the main sensitivities are validated against direct calculation. Finally, uncertainty propagation is performed using the COMAC-V2.0 covariance library.
Key words: beta effective / perturbation / sensitivity
