Re: Fatal Error: Composition not sorted

As Luke pointed out, the problem might derive from not converting the isotope symbol/string to ZAI (or vice-versa) within the MSR-routines. Thus, Serpent interprets them as different isotopes, not finding them within the transmutation paths/listed nuclides.

Re: Fatal error in function DetectorOutput

Could you describe in more detail the input/calculation/error output? Or post here the input? Which Serpent version are you running? Note: e.g., you can simply place a mesh detector discretising the axial direction to obtain flux estimates at the listed positions on top of whatever defined (spatial)...

Re: Fatal error in function SurfaceNormal: Unsupported surface type 12

If the input/calculation triggers that error, the 'CUBOID' surface type (15) might not work either. - Which Serpent version are you running?
Note: you can take a look at the routine 'surfacenormal.c' and check the surface's types where the normal vector is evaluated.

Re: Fatal error in function SurfaceNormal: Unsupported surface type 12

Routine 'surfacenormal.c' evaluates the normal vector for a given surface at (x,y,z). Currently, it doesn't include all surfaces available in Serpent (for multiple reasons). Surface type 12 corresponds with the 'CUBE' type definition. Meaning, you have a surface defined as a 'CUBE' type and, Serpent...

Re: flux calculation

Yes, instead of post-processing the estimates, you can use the volume detector entry ‘ dv ’. However, keep in mind that such option is only valid for constant bin-volume, e.g. not applicable for curvilinear mesh detectors where the division is based on equal radii, not equal volume. Note: the comman...

Re: flux calculation

The detector gives you the flux integrated over space/energy/direction (and time). To obtain the neutron averaged-flux [n/cm^2 s] you should divide by bin-volume corresponding to the integration spatial-domain: determined by the material detector ‘ dm ’ fuelPIN1/fuelPIN2/fuelPIN3 and refined and dis...

Re: Calculate the scattering matrix using detectors

Why don't you check the group constant generation option, 'set gcu'?

"This option ['set fum'] does not affect the flux spectrum used during burnup calculations".

Re: Variables in burnup calculations

There is no programmer's manual or something similar describing the variables/structures/etc. You can track them down to understand their meaning and role within the code.
