Nucleonica’s webKORIGEN module has now been released for general use and testing. webKORIGEN is a user friendly web-based version of the KORIGEN nuclear fuel cycle analyses code. The module is used to calculate the fuel depletion during irradiation (burn-up) and decay, and to determine some characteristics of spent nuclear fuel such as time-dependent nuclide masses, radioactivities, decay heat, radiation sources and radiotoxicities. For more information see the Nucleonica wiki page on webKORIGEN
