Abstract: This paper gives an overview of the new ‘Fuel Rod Analysis Toolbox’, which is a program for the pre-processing of input data for fuel performance codes with a graphical user interface under Windows. It consists of three different modules that can handle several tasks such as data condensation, merging and synchronization. It can reduce the amount of data, hence the computation time of fuel performance codes and reduce the time required to prepare input files for complex experimental data sets, or prepare the input files on the basis of detailed code calculations carried out by neutronics or thermo-hydraulics codes applied for safety analysis reports. It is proposed to be used as a common basis to generate input files for fuel performance code validation on the basis of the experimental data included in the International Fuel Performance Experiments database of the IAEA and the OECD-NEA in the frame of benchmarks such as FUMAC.
