The routine also enables the calculation of pebble-wise power distributions over the reactor core without defining additional tallies.

A delayed neutron model Valtavirta, allows the tracking of precursor concentrations over long time periods. Ad recent and upcoming events. Multiple versions of the same database exist for example, test and production.

Fission product poisons Xe and Sm can be handled separately from the other nuclides, and iterated to their equilibrium concentration during the transport simulation. If you may any questions please contact us: The drawback of the unionized energy grid approach is that computer memory is wasted for storing redundant data points. High-temperature gas-cooled reactor geometries differ significantly from conventional light water reactors. The equilibrium calculation is independent of the depletion routine, and the iteration can also be performed in transport mode without burnup calculation.

This can be performed in a pre-processing stage or on-the-fly during the transport simulation Viitanen, Ruby Cookbook Cookbooks OReilly. Subsystem name and type online or batch IRLM identification Abnormal-end flag and the recovery-process start flag List of authorized databases Time stamp that correlates the subsystem entry with the appropriate log records Database records Database records track the state of databases, DBDSs, and resources required for recovery of the DBDSs.

The source distribution for photon transport simulations can be obtained from a radioactive decay source. Serpent also 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. CAD models are read in the stereolitography STL format, in which the surfaces of geometry bodies are represented by a mesh of flat triangles.


The irradiation history is defined in units of time or burnup.

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. Maybe Yes this page is useful No this page is not useful Is there anything wrong with this page?

Explicit particle and pebble-bed fuel model for HTGR calculations. Change accumulation records Change accumulation records track information about change accumulation groups. January 6, NEA Base version upgraded to 1.

October 13, M. The third data set the spare is used in the following cases: The lack of high-quality experimental reference data is a common problem in the validation of all burnup calculation codes. The fissile material is encapsulated inside microscopic tristructural-isotropic TRISO fuel particles, randomly dispersed in fuel compacts or pebbles made of graphite.

The method has been validated with good results and the routine works efficiently without significant computational overhead. Secondary photons are produced by atomic relaxation and bremsstrahlung, handled using the thick-target bremsstrahlung TTB approximation.

Validation against MCNP has also been carried out with equally good results for calculations involving individual nuclidesby comparing the flux spectra produced by the two codes.

Macroscopic cross sections for each material are pre-generated before the transport simulation. Poison cross sections for Xe and Sm and their precursors. Related content Collection NHS reference costs. MS Excel Spreadsheet5.

This page contains organisation level reference costs data. This class of records includes change accumulation group, execution, and data set records.

When the third RECON data set starts to be used, the remaining valid data set is copied to the spare. Published 13 January Similar to other Monte Carlo codes the basic geometry description in Serpent relies on a universe-based constructive solid geometry CSG model, which allows the description of practically any two- or three-dimensional fuel or reactor configuration.


The first method is the Transmutation Trajectory Analysis TTA method Cetnar,based on the analytical solution of linearized depletion chains. Validation Each Serpent update is checked by comparison to MCNP by running a standard set of assembly calculation problems. Variance 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.

Burnup calculations are extremely sensitive to differences in the fundamental physics data, and changing one decay library to another can alone result in orders of magnitude discrepancies for some radionuclides.

Serpent 1 is no longer actively maintained, and all users are strongly encouraged to switch to Serpent 2 instead. The main drawback of delta-tracking is that the track-length estimate of particle flux is not available, and reaction rates have to be calculated using the potentially less-efficient collision estimator. The total number of different nuclides produced from fission, transmutation and decay reactions is generally lower, in the order of March, Serpent 1.

When the copy operation is finished, the spare becomes whichever of the data sets was lost, missing, referencw in error. This work is an essential part of expanding the use of Serpent to fusion research. In addition to the particle transport simulation, parallelization in the burnup calculation mode divides also the preprocessing and depletion routines between several CPU’s. 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.
