Abstract: Safety authorities and fuel designers, as well as nuclear research centers rely heavily on fuel performance codes for predicting the behaviour and life-time of fuel rods. The simulation tools are developed and validated on the basis of experimental results, some of which is in the public domain such as the International Fuel Performance Experiments database of the OECD/NEA and IAEA. Publicly available data constitute an excellent basis for assessing codes themselves, but also to compare codes that are being developed by independent teams. The present report summarises the advantages for the TRANSURANUS code by taking part in previous benchmarks organised by the IAEA, and outlines the preliminary results along with the perspectives of our participation in the current coordinated research project FUMEXIII.
