The world’s population increases so rapidly that will place an ‎enormous strain on ‎energy ‎resources. ‎Nuclear power today ‎represents one of the most important contributors to ‎the ‎word ‎electricity ‎supply. ‎Disposal of nuclear waste is critical to the continuous ‎development ‎and future use of ‎nuclear energy. The ‎coupling of an external neutron source to a ‎sub-critical ‎reactor to ‎compose an ‎accelerator driven system (ADS) is a ‎very ‎interesting option to ‎transmutation nuclear waste and ‎improve the safety of nuclear ‎critical ‎reactor in terms of ‎criticality control. The book provides ‎comprehensive information about The nuclear power, ‎nuclear waste and its transmutation ‎strategies, theoretical foundations of the efficiency of ‎accelerator-driven ‎sub-critical reactors, ‎nuclear data libraries, Monte Carlo code MCNPX and ‎WIMS code,‎‎ ‎design ‎and description of the ‎basic configurations of the ‎MYRRHA ‎FASTEF subcritical BoL ‎core ‎‎and the MYRRHA ‎FASTEF ‎subcritical ‎equilibrium core. In addition to ‎calculating the neutronic parameters of the proposed ‎model. The book can be used as a textbook ‎for students of nuclear physics and engineering.‎
