A space-time nodal transport code, DAISY, was developed to evaluate dynamic neutron behavior in innovative nuclear system. The steady transport process is based on an arbitrary triangles-z mesh nodal method which can treat complicated geometry configuration with enough precision and acceptable calculated quantity. This code employs the improved quasi-static method for neutron kinetics with a predictor-corrector scheme to improve computational efficiency. The direct method and the point approximation for neutron kinetics are also implemented into DAISY to evaluate the precision and efficiency of this predictor-corrector scheme. This code was verified by several transient benchmarks. It shows that the predictor-corrector scheme in DAISY can greatly reduce the computational time with enough precision.
