This paper presents current status and development of nuclear calculation methodology for sodium cooled fast reactor in Mitsubishi and two core design codes; an original two dimensional cell/lattice calculation code, PIJHEX and a thermal hydraulic calculation code, MIX-MKII. Mitsubishi Atomic Power Industries, Inc. developed several core design codes for Monju and JOYO and recently this activity continues still further for the next FBR in Japan. It is explained in this paper that the PIJHEX is confirmed to be valid from the comparison of Monte Carlo code and the examination on physical phenomenon in calculation results. Besides, the approach toward design and development of code system in Mitsubishi and MIX-MKII are introduced briefly.
