A tokamak reactor systems code has been developed by combining a previously developed plasma engineering code with an existing reactor systems code and adding calculations for thermal hydraulics, stress analysis, physical sputtering, and neutron activation dose rate. Calculations from the thermal hydraulics and neutron activation dose rate modules are compared with results from more complex codes. The effects on reactor performance of unpredictable properties such as plasma profiles and confinement times are demonstrated.
