The super multi-functional calculation program for nuclear design and safety evaluation is a general, intelligent, accurate and precise simulation software system for the nuclear design and safety evaluations. The heavy water reactor has a much stronger moderation power and much longer diffusion length of the thermalized neutrons. The paper intends to show the verification and validation of SuperMC3.2 with a heavy-water-moderated lattice named the deuterium critical assembly which is very similar to the Canada Deuterium Uranium type reactor and selected from the international reactor physics experiment evaluation project. The calculation results were compared with the reference calculated results and the experimental data from International Reactor Physics Experiment Evaluation Project. The final obtained results proved the accuracy, convenience and universality of SuperMC, and primarily verified the applicability of SuperMC in nuclear analysis of heavy water reactor.
Key words: Monte Carlo, SuperMC, heavy water reactor, verification and validation,
