JMCT is a general purpose Mont Carlo neutron-photon-electron or coupled neutron/photon/electron transport code with a continuous energy and multigroup. The code has almost all functions of a general Monte Carlo code which include the various variance reduction techniques, the multi-level parallel computation of MPI and OpenMP, the domain decomposition and on-fly Doppler broadening, etc. Especially, JMCT supports the depletion calculation with TTA and CRAM methods. The input uses the CAD modelling and the calculated results use the visual output. The geometry zones, materials, tallies, depletion zones, memories and the period of random number are enough big for suit of various problems. This paper describes the application of the JMCT Monte Carlo code to the simulation of BEAVRS and SG-III shielding model. For BEAVRS model, the JMCT results of HZP status are almost the same with MC21, OpenMC and experiment. Also, we performed the coupled calculation of neutron transport and depletion in full power. The results of ten depletion steps are obtained, where the depletion regions exceed 1.5 million and 120 thousand processors to be used. Due to no coupled with thermal hydraulics, the result is only for reference. Finally, we performed the detail modelling for Chinese SG-III laser facility, where the anomalistic geometry bodies exceed 10 thousands. The flux distribution of the radiation shielding is obtain based on the mesh tally in case of Deuterium-Tritium fusion reaction. The high fidelity of JMCT has been shown.
