The spent fuel disposal is a very important step during the recycling of nuclear fuel and the operation process is very complex and dangerous. With the fast development of nuclear power reactor in china, more and more spent fuel will occur and should be treated in the near future. For researching the spent fuel management and training the operators, we have been developing the virtual reality (VR) Simulation System for spent fuel reprocessing (VRSS) aimed at demonstrating and analyzing the treatment process. The VRSS is based the VR and visualization technology. Combined with the regulation of radiation protection, the integrated virtual operate environment is developed to enable user navigation the working place, and obtain target information “it can demonstrate the structure and component of equipment, it also can illustrate the disassembly craft transform principle and the operation way of extraction facility. It even can prompt the user how to operate when spent fuel handling accident occur.
