Introduction
A Monte Carlo code MCS has being developed at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) since 2013. The target of MCS is to solve complex whole core problems like BEAVRS. MCS can treat the 3D whole core geometry with universe and lattice, and the neutron physics with probability-table, free-gas treatment, S(a,b) and Doppler Broadening Rejection Correction.
