The RAST-K 2.0 code is a recently developed three-dimensional two-group PWR core analysis code by UNIST CORE lab. It aims to be used by utilities to perform in-core fuel management studies, core design calculations, load follow simulation and transient analysis in neutronics. The RAST-K 2.0 code is capable of performing steady-state, quasi transient and transient calculations by solving the two-group three-dimensional neutron diffusion equation in eigenvalue or fixed source modes.
