A computer code for solving the 3-D time-dependent multigroup neutron diffusion equation by a coupled reactor kinetics method recently developed has been developed and for evaluating its applicability in CANDU transient analysis applied to a 3-D kinetics benchmark problem which reveals non-uniform loss of coolant accident followed by an asymmetric insertion of shutdown devices. The performance of the method and code has been compared with the CANDU design code, CERBERUS, employing a finite difference improved quasistatic method.
