Burn-up credit calculations for the VVER-440 Juraguà-1 reactor fuel have been benchmarked with earlier calculations performed for the PUN PWR reactor. Differences between the two sets of results have been partially explained by finding scaling laws with neutron flux and neutron fluence. Other differences, due to different codes, libraries, etc. cannot be dealt with in this comparison. However, taking the latter into account, the two sets of results are acceptably consistent: Table 1 (column 7) shows that most of the scaled PUN results are within 10% the Juraguà results. This paper is a further positive verification, after those in refs. 2-3, of the reliability of the fuel burnup credit calculations performed for the Juraguà nuclear reactor.
