Anyone knows how to execute burnup process in MCNP5?

    Hi for everyone, anyone knows whether it is possible to execute burnup process in MCNP5? I want to get K-inf as fuel depletion goes on. Thanks

    Burn-up (MCNPX Manual Page: 5-77)

    It's not clear to me, but perhaps BURNCAL can be used for depletion calculations with MCNP5. There are numerous examples of coupled codes in nuclear R&D/industry.

    Here is another example of coupling MCNP with ORIGEN in a code called MCODE.
