The capabilities of Serpent 2 are described at the on-line Wiki and the discussion forum. As part of our ongoing review process we are very keen to know the breadth of users who are utilising the organisation level reference costs data. The source distribution for photon transport simulations can be obtained from a radioactive decay source. Group constants and all the other output parameters are calculated and gjide for each burnup step.

Modeling of accurate heat deposition in coolant and structural materials requires accounting for the direct contribution of neutrons and fission and capture gammas. This is strongly recommended. Burnup algorithms include the conventional explicit Euler and predictor-corrector methods, but Serpent 2 also offers various higher-order methods and sub-step solutions for burnup calculation Isotalo, b; guids b; a; b.

The CSG geometry consists of homogeneous material cells, defined by elementary and derived surface types that are combined using Boolean operators intersections, unions and complements. Support for users is provided at the Serpent Discussion Forumand the Serpent Wiki acts as an on-line user manual. Serpent started out as a simplified reactor physics code, but the capabilities of the current development version, Serpent 2, extend well beyond reactor modeling.

The original incentive for developing a photon transport mode was to account for gamma heating in coupled multi-physics simulations. Maybe Yes this page is useful No this page is not useful Is there anything wrong with this page?

Traditional guids physics applications, including spatial homogenization, criticality calculations, fuel cycle studies, research reactor modeling, validation of deterministic transport codes, etc.

It contains the current information. We would therefore be very grateful if users would email the PbR data collection team at PbRdatacollection dh. 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.

Change accumulation records track information about change accumulation groups.

This class of records includes:. The calculation of rederence group constants is fully automated, and Serpent provides an automated burnup sequence capable of performing branch calculations for state-point variation.

The values can also be obtained from a Monte Carlo based volume calculation routine or entered manually. The transient capability in Serpent allows the modeling of both prompt super-critical reactivity excursions and slow transients below rference criticality. Serpent supports conventional square and hexagonal lattices, and provides special geometry types for CANDU and randomly-dispersed particle fuels.

The drawback of the unionized energy grid approach is that computer memory is wasted for storing redundant data points.

The use of a single energy grid results in a major speed-up in calculation, as the number of CPU time consuming grid search iterations is reduced to minimum. Development of a guife temperature treatment technique for Monte Carlo neutron tracking at Aalto University.


These queries, and instructions on how to use them, are also included in the guidance guode. DBRC organisation-specific reference cost data. The same DBD name is used for the different versions of the database.

Digital Character Gguide 3 No. The best way to validate the Monte Carlo based code sequence is to compare the results to reference Serpent full-core calculations.

In this source mode Serpent combines the compositions of activated materials into photon emission spectra read from ENDF format radioactive decay data files.

Thermal bound-atom scattering data is included for light and heavy water and graphite. Differences to other Monte Carlo codes Keno-VI are small, but statistically significant discrepancies can be observed in some cases. Another option for adjusting the material temperatures is the target motion sampling TMS on-the-fly temperature treatment routine Viitanen, a; b; a; a; a; b; c.

The number of depletion zones is not restricted, although memory usage may require reducing the optimization when the number of burnable materials is large. Thank you for your feedback. Interaction physics Referenec reads continuous-energy cross sections from ACE format data libraries. In addition to discrepancies in the transport simulation, there are additional factors related to decay, fission yield and isomeric branching ratio data, formulation of transmutation and decay chains, depletion algorithms, and so on.
