The main goal of this study was to perform the neutronic analysis of nanofluids as a coolant in reactor simu- lation. The variation of multiplication factor and thermal power have been investigated in the Bushehr VVER-1000 reactor core with using different nanofluids as coolant. In the applied analysis, water-based nanofluids containing vari- ous volume fractions of Al2O3, TiO2, CuO and Cu nanoparticles were used. The addition of different types and volume fractions of nanoparticles were found…
