      Abstract

      The need for proliferation-resistance, longer fuel cycles,
      higher burn up and improvedwaste form characteristics has
      led to a renewed worldwide interest in thorium-based fuels
      and fuel cycles. In this paper the GEANT4 Monte Carlo
      code has been used to simulate the Thorium-Uranium fuel
      cycle. The accelerator driven fertile to fissile conversion
      rates have been calculated for various geometries. Several
      new classes have been added by the authors to the
      GEANT4 simulation code, an extension which allows the
      state-of-the-art code to be used for
