Re: Fuel shuffling

Hi Jaakko, Yep swapping the opposite fuel blocks would work for the radial issue. However as an example if I have the reactor split in two axially, then if the top fuel block was rotated so the old highest point is in the middle of the core now, with the least burnt fuel from the radial point also f...

Hi Serpent team, I am interested in rotating one of my hexagonal fuel blocks (a lattice) after a period of burnup, with the depleted materials being kept the same as at the point in the burnup calculation. This would allow for the fuel at the edges which have not been burnt as much as the middle to ...
