IFP for adjoint-weighted point-kinetics parameters

Postby Jaakko Leppänen » Tue Dec 31, 2013 2:25 pm

A paper on the implementation of iterated fission probability (IFP) based calculation of adjoint-weighted point-kinetics parameters and effective delayed neutron fraction in Serpent 2:

J. Leppänen, M. Aufiero, E. Fridman, R. Rachamin and S. van der Marck, "Calculation of effective point kinetics parameters in the Serpent 2 Monte Carlo code." Ann. Nucl. Energy, 65 (2014) 272–279.

has been made available on-line at Science Direct. The method is implemented in Serpent 2.1.16, and it is intended to be used for calculating time constants for research reactors and other complete systems. We will soon start working on a methodology for producing adjoint-weighted time constants as part of spatial homogenization, which may involve only a part of the modeled geometry.
