Abstract
The REBUS experiment is a valuable benchmark for the validation of Monte Carlo criticality codes within the context of burn-up credit. It investigates the difference in reactivity worth of unirradiated fuel rods and of fuel rods irradiated in a PWR. This paper presents results of criticality calculations for this experiment with the Monte Carlo codes MCNP and SCALE/KENO. Furthermore, calculated results for the 3D core characteristics (fission rate and flux distribution) are compared with the measured values.
