Volumes and masses needed for the normalization are calculated automatically for simple geometries, such as 2D fuel pin lattices.

Geometry and particle tracking Similar to other Monte Carlo codes the basic geometry description in Serpent relies on a universe-based constructive solid geometry CSG model, rsference allows the description of practically any two- or three-dimensional fuel or reactor configuration. High-temperature gas-cooled reactor geometries differ significantly from conventional light water reactors.

Built-in mass-energy attenuation coefficients are available for calculating photon dose rates.

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

We would therefore be very grateful if users would email the PbR data collection team at PbRdatacollection dh. To help us improve GOV. The third data set the spare is used in the following cases: The stability of 3D burnup calculations can be improved by implicit algorithms Dufek, Log records Log records track the log data sets used by all subsystems.

Systematic validation for criticality refeerence analyses using experimental configurations and data from the International Handbook of Evaluated Criticality Safety Benchmark Experiments is currently under way. Download organisation level data MS Excel Spreadsheet5.

COMMENTS Readers’ Comments

Validation of burnup calculation routines is considerably more difficult, due to the lack of a perfect reference code.

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. 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.


Flux-volume-averaged one-group transmutation 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.

This is usually not a problem at all in reactor calculations when reaction rates are scored in regions of high collision density.

Various response functions are available for guid calculation of integral reaction rates, including material-wise macroscopic and isotopic microscopic cross sections, ACE format dosimetry data and user-defined functions.

This is the case, for example, in reflectors and assembly colorset configurations. The implementation of photon physics routines has also allowed broadening the scope of Serpent applications from traditional reactor physics calculations to radiation transport and shielding.

Lean Six Sigma for Service: Instead of calculating the cross sections by summing over the constituent nuclides during tracking, the values are read from pre-generated tables, which is another effective means to improve the performance. Internal coupling to built-in solvers for fuel behavior and thermal hydraulics. This feedback will be instrumental in shaping our ongoing communications with users of the data, as well as how we publish the data going forward.

The burnup calculation capability in Serpent was established early on, and is entirely based on built-in referece routines, without guie to any external solvers. MS Excel Spreadsheet5. Is this page useful? The total number of different nuclides produced from fission, transmutation and decay reactions is generally lower, in the order of The physics model currently covers the basic interactions Rayleigh and Compton scattering, photoelectric wnd and electron-positron pair production for photon energies ranging from 1 keV to MeV.


DBRC always reads from this data set, and when some change has to be applied, the change is written first to this data set. 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. The capabilities of Serpent 2 are described at the on-line Wiki and the discussion forum. The main features and capabilities of the code are introduced below.

Erference coupling to thermal hydraulics, Reefrence and fuel performance codes has been a major topic in Serpent development for the past several years. Modeling of accurate heat deposition in coolant and structural materials requires accounting for the direct contribution of neutrons and fission and capture gammas. The best solution, from an referenxe point of view, is to use all three data sets. Serpent 1 base version: The lowest optimization modes allow running large burnup calculation problems with tens or hundreds of thousands of depletion zones, while the higher modes provide considerable speed-up in assembly-level calculations.

The purpose of the multi-physics interface is essentially to separate the state variables from the geometry description, which allows handing all data flow between the coupled codes without modifications in the main input files.
