ABSTRACT
The article discusses the MACROS software for predicting the behavior of fuels to be used in the transmutation of nuclear wastes. A modeling exercise was conducted for four kinds of fuel. It was shown that in order to properly model the various aspects of nuclear fuel evolution for this type of materials, much more studies are needed.
