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'?

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.

Re: Pebbles motion

Anything else than providing Serpent with some sort of capability to drive the pebbles wouldn't make sense in terms of modifying the source in this case. The changes should come from upstream (data structure). If you know how the restart file is written, meaning the structure and content, you could ...

Re: Pebbles motion

From your description, you, basically, are shuffling the pebbles by sending those to the outside core region. Serpent will continue depleting the outside-core pebbles accordingly to the power setup and flux at the given region. In that sense, if the flux is zero or near to, the behaviour would be co...

Re: Variance reduction in excore detector , outside of source

Basically, the error message indicates that the point is outside the defined region. Check how did you define the mesh for the response matrix solver. You might want to check the detector flagging option, see 'dfl'.
