Abstract [en]

We present new methods for building the polynomial-regression based nodal nuclear data models. Thedata models can reflect dependences on a large number of state variables, and they can consider varioushistory effects. Suitable multivariate polynomials that approximate the nodal data dependences are identifiedefficiently in an iterative manner. The history effects are analysed using a new sampling scheme forlattice calculations where the traditional base burnup and branch calculations are replaced by a largenumber of diverse burnup histories. The total number of lattice calculations is controlled so that the datamodels are built to a required accuracy.
