Monte Carlo burnup analysis code development and application to an incore thermionic space nuclear power system

Lattice bum-up calculations in thermal reactors are complicated by the necessity for use of transport theory to represent fuel rods, control rods, and burnable absorbers, by many time-dependent variables which must be considered in the analysis, and by geometric complexity which introduces time-depe...
