Change accumulation records Change accumulation records track information about change accumulation groups. Burnup calculation The burnup calculation capability in Serpent was established early on, and is entirely based on built-in calculation routines, without coupling to any external solvers.
Energy, 82 Secondary photons are produced by atomic relaxation and bremsstrahlung, handled using the thick-target bremsstrahlung TTB approximation. January 6, NEA Base version upgraded to 1. The method was developed especially for the purpose of multi-physics coupling see belowwhere it can be used for modeling a wide variation of material temperatures or even continous temperature distributions.
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.
Is this page useful? Subsystem records Subsystem records contain information about the subsystem and related recovery information, including: January 31, Beta-testing phase of Serpent 2 started. High-temperature gas-cooled reactor geometries differ significantly from conventional light water reactors.
Parallelization at core level is handled by thread-based OpenMP, which has the advantage that all CPU cores within the computational node are accessing the same memory space. Serpent 1 is no longer actively maintained, and all users are strongly encouraged to switch to Serpent 2 instead.
Complex geometries with highly-refined spatial detail are also encountered in various fusion applications. The calculation of homogenized group constants is fully automated, and Serpent provides an automated burnup sequence capable of performing branch calculations for state-point variation. Neutron and photon transport simulations for radiation dose rate calculations, shielding, fusion research and medical physics.
It contains the current information.

Spatial homogenization was the main intended application for Serpent when the project was started in Radioactive decay and fission yield data refeeence in the calculation is read from standard ENDF format data libraries. Transport cross sections and diffusion coefficients calculated using several gude. Serpent 1 base version: The second data set is known as copy2. The model works on several levels particles inside a pebble and pebbles inside the core and it has been tested in realistic double-heterogeneous reactor configurations consisting of over 60 million randomly positioned units Suikkanen, ; Rintala, The computational overhead from handling the unstructured configuration is moderate compared to a similar regular-lattice model.
The spatial bdrc domain can be defined by a combination of cells, universes, lattices and materials, or using a three-dimensional super-imposed mesh. The number of depletion zones is not restricted, although memory usage may require reducing the optimization when the number of burnable materials is large. 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.
This is usually not a problem at all in reactor calculations when reaction rates are scored in regions of high collision density. It will help us if you say what assistive technology you use. Each Serpent update is checked by comparison to MCNP by running a standard set of assembly calculation problems.

This is important especially for theses, which are otherwise difficult to keep track of. The original data set.
The standard tally types are based on the collision estimate of particle flux, and special detectors are available for calculating surface currents and reaction rates inside simple surface types using the track-length estimator. Flux-volume-averaged one-group dvrc cross sections are calculated either during the transport simulation, or by collapsing the continuous-energy reaction cross sections after the calculation has been completed using a flux spectrum collected on the unionized energy grid.
If you may any questions please contact us: Multiple versions of the same database exist for example, test and production. 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, referenc so on.
The tracking routine has proven efficient and well suited for geometries where refreence neutron or photon mean-free-path is long compared to the dimensions. In addition to the standard ACE format cross guidee 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.
As last year, this method of publication replaces the data dvd publication used in previous years. Explore the topic Health and social care.

Photon tallies also include a pulse-height detector. Published 13 January The fissile material is encapsulated inside microscopic tristructural-isotropic TRISO fuel particles, randomly dispersed in fuel compacts or pebbles rreference of graphite. The source distribution for photon transport simulations can be obtained from a radioactive decay source.

To reduce file sizes, the CSV files have been zipped. As a general rule, more than one set of RECON data sets is necessary if all the following conditions are true: Click here to find out more. This is typically the case in reactor physics calculations involving fuel assemblies and especially HTGR micro-particle fuels. Serpent uses fixed ratios for the most important nuclides e.
