Abstract
Path B analyses are carried out both by direct methods and by a nonlinear perturbation technique. Direct Path B investigations are carried out by the batch depletion code FASTCELL, the core analysis code FASTCORE, and the reactor cost code COSTR. FASTCELL depletes a cell using methods comparable to industry cell codes except for a few group treatment of cell flux distribution. FASTCORE is used here with the Haling strategy of fixed power sharing among batches in the core. COSTR computes costs using components and techniques as in industry costing codes except that COSTR uses fixed payment schedules.
