The conventional method for neutron-photon coupling transport calculation lacks of clear physical meanings, where the process of neutron transport and photon transport are independent, and only ensures the numbers of photons to be coupling with the neutrons. At the same time, when dealing with photoelectric effect, the nuclear data will be processed frequently, increasing the amount of calculation. By modifying the RMC codes, the deep-coupling and preprocessed photon transport is achieved. This new coupling method can satisfy the physical requirements and reduce the computational complexity while ensuring the accuracy of the calculation. At the same time, the preprocessing of the photoelectric effect nuclear data can accelerate the calculation without changing the calculation results. Through the deep-coupling and preprocessed photon transport method, the RMC codes can finished the high-precision shielding calculation. A typical LWR component is calculated with the new method, and the results prove the effectiveness.
