This standard provides guidance for performing and validating the sequence of steady-state calculations leading to prediction, in all types of commercial nuclear reactors, of 1)reaction-rate spatial distributions, 2) reactivity 3) change of isotopic compositions with time.  The standard provides 1) guidance for the selection of computational methods, 2)Criteria for verification and validation of calculational methods used by reactor core analysts, 3) Criteria for evaluation of accuracy and  range of applicability of data and methods, and 4)Requirements for documentation of the preceding.
