The values can also be obtained from a Monte Carlo based volume calculation routine or entered manually. Differences to deterministic lattice codes are generally larger, mainly due to the fundamental differences between the calculation methods.
The irradiation history is defined in units of time or burnup.
As a general rule, more than one set of RECON data sets is necessary if all the following conditions are true: Referencf reduction When Serpent started out as a reactor physics code, obtaining sufficient statistics for the results was just a matter of running a sufficient number of neutron histories. Radioactive decay and fission yield data used in the calculation is read from standard ENDF format data libraries.
Serpent has the capability to import CAD and unstructured mesh based geometries as part of the universe structure. Traditional reactor physics applications, including spatial homogenization, criticality calculations, fuel cycle studies, research reactor modeling, validation of deterministic transport codes, etc.
Effective multiplication factors and homogenized few-group reaction cross sections are within the statistical accuracy from the reference results, when the same ACE libraries are used in the calculations. Serpent dbgc has a built-in homogeneous diffusion flux solver for calculating discontinuity factors in regions where the net current over the boundaries is not reduced to zero by reflective boundary conditions. A delayed neutron model Valtavirta, allows the tracking of precursor concentrations over long time periods.
Eeference multi-physics simulations Two-way refegence to thermal hydraulics, CFD and fuel ebrc codes has been a major topic in Serpent development for the past several years. Please report any scientific publications where you have extensively used Serpent to the developer team, so we can include them on the list of publications. All numerical output is written in Matlab m-format files to simplify the post-processing of the results.
We have also created standard data analysis queries to allow users to manipulate and understand the data more easily. Reaction rates are normalized to total power, specific power density, flux, fission or source rate, and the normalization can be changed by dividing the irradiation cycle into a number of separate depletion intervals.
The physics model is comparable to the methods used in other Monte Carlo transport codes e. Prevention and Detection for the Twenty-First Century: Validation of burnup calculation routines is considerably more difficult, due to the lack of a perfect reference code.
Poison cross sections for Xe and Sm and their precursors. Explicit particle and pebble-bed fuel model for HTGR calculations High-temperature gas-cooled reactor geometries differ significantly from conventional light water reactors. The stability of 3D burnup calculations can be improved by implicit algorithms Dufek, The number of depletion zones is not restricted, although memory usage may require reducing the optimization when the number of burnable materials is large.
In addition to the standard ACE format cross section libraries Serpent reads photon interaction data from supplementary data files, which is why the physics model is not fully compatible with that used in MCNP.
Differences to other Monte Carlo codes Keno-VI are small, but statistically significant discrepancies can be observed in some cases. Skip to main content.
Doppler-broadening of cross guiee A built-in Doppler-broadening preprocessor routine Viitanen, allows adjusting the temperatures of ACE format cross sections. In this case, the test database with a DSN different than the production database, even if with the same DBD name and data set name, can coexist with the production environment, but not under the control of DBRC.
Various response functions are available for the calculation of integral reaction rates, including material-wise macroscopic and isotopic microscopic cross sections, ACE format dosimetry data and user-defined functions. File System Forensic Analysis. The best solution, from an availability point of view, is to use all three data sets. Homogenization can be performed in infinite spectrum, or using a leakage correction based on the deterministic solution of the B 1 equations.
Interaction data is available for nuclides at 6 temperatures between and K.
The second data set is known as copy2. Serpent has two fundamentally different options for solving the Bateman depletion equations. Similar validation project is planned for radiation shielding calculations. Explore the topic Health and social care. SeptemberSerpent International User Group MeetingDresden, Germany also see the topic at the discussion forum and the meeting website.
Macroscopic cross sections for each material are pre-generated before the transport simulation.
The original data set A copy of the original data set A spare data set The original data set and the copy are a pair of VSAM clusters that work as a pair to record information.
