Abstract

This paper describes the development of a sensitivity and uncertainty (S&U) analysis calculation system for reactor physics calculations. Classical perturbation theory has been implemented within the fuel assembly code CASMO-4 to enable the computation of multiplication factor sensitivity coefficients with respect to cross-sections. In addition, a covariance library has been created and connected to the code in order to allow uncertainty analysis. The work has been carried out as a part of the international UAM benchmark.
