A study of the effect of neutrons leakage on the characteristics of nuclides burnup wave in multiplying media (cylindrical geometry) has been carried out. The burnup wave is characterized in terms of velocity of propagation, transient length and transient time in establishing the burnup wave and Full Width at Half Maximum in established region of the wave. Uranium-Plutonium fuel cycle is considered. The sensitivity of the results is studied with the leakage of neutrons. The study provides insight on the build up of burn up wave in the neutron multiplying media
