Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics SB RAS together with Nuclear Safety Institute RAS is working on a hybrid system with a neutron source based on the gas-dynamic trap (GDT) and sub-critical blanket for incineration of high-activity long-lived radioactive wastes.

This report gives an overview of recent results obtained in collaborative development of modeling tools for the described system. Particularly, DOL code was created for the source plasma parameters calculation, NMC code was applied to model neutron transport processes and NMC+ module was developed for burnup calculations. The codes are shortly described in the article. Validation results are also presented.
