FANCSEE: Nuclear fuel cycle simulator

FANCSEE is a unique, “standalone” advanced fuel cycle simulation code developed by the division. The code is written in C and C++ for Linux platforms.

The idea behind the program:

  • Suitable tool for research, education and nuclear power strategy planning
  • Easy to use
  • With a GUI
  • Short runtime
  • Minimal compromises to accuracy
  • Open access

Main features:

  • Tracking evolution of 1346 nuclides in a reactor core
  • Reprocessing options
  • Currently, libraries of PWR and BWR reactors
  • Under development
    • Fast reactors (sodium and heavy metal cooled)
    • Accelerator Driven Systems (heavy metal cooled)
  • Graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Plotting of results for each facility and nuclide
  • Nuclide mass
  • Inhaled or ingested toxicity
  • Radioactivity
