Sensitivities of k∞ and nuclides number densities during nuclear fuel burnup with respect to nuclear data are calculated with a reactor physics code system CBZ. Sensitivity calculations are carried out with the depletion perturbation theory applicable to nuclear fuel assemblies including burnable absorbers. Numerical results are presented both for BWR and PWR assemblies, and those demonstrate usefulness and effectiveness of burnup sensitivity calculation capabilities for LWR fuel assemblies.
Key words: depletion perturbation theory / sensitivity / fuel assembly / predictor-corrector method
