The paper shows the application of the most recent sensitivity techniques implemented in Serpent-2 in order to propagate the uncertainty from the nuclear data to the macroscopic, homogenised cross sections of the ALFRED reactor, which is then simulated with the multi-physics code FRENETIC. The main results are encouraging and define a possible methodology to propagate the nuclear data uncertainties to the main macroscopic parameters computed with FRENETIC, in order to perform thorough safety analyses for the ALFRED reactor.
Key words: lead fast reactor / nuclear data / sampling / uncertainty propagation / multi-physics codes
