Spatial distribution of Xe-135

Post by Yousef1986 » Thu Jun 01, 2017 12:51 pm

Dear Jaakko,

Is there a way to print out the distribution of Xe-135 atomic density in 3D geometry and as a function of burnup.

All nuclide concentrations are associated with materials, so unfortunately there is no easy way to convert this data into a spatial distribution. You can try using the automated depletion zone divisor feature:

with the depletion output parameter:

http://serpent.vtt.fi/mediawiki/index.p ... set_depout

set to 1. This will give you the depletion zone wise compositions in the _dep.m output (instead of material-wise).The automated division is done in done in some logical order, and it might be possible to parse that information into a distribution. The problem is that the division is done by a recursive algorithm that wasn't designed to produce human-readable output.

Thanks Jaakko
Interesting to know that with "set depout 1" I could get zone-wise composition into the _dep.m output file.
That what I was looking for :)
