Cell Division

Post by Reem » Tue Dec 12, 2017 5:04 pm

Hello,

If I divided a rod containing burnable absorber into multiple layers to observe the changes on the reaction rate , would it be accounted the same as the option (Burn 10) in the material card?

Regards,

Do you mean if the div-card:

http://serpent.vtt.fi/mediawiki/index.p ... inition.29

produces the same result as "burn 10"? If so, then yes, but the div-card is more general and requires the volumes to be defined explicitly:

Yes, this is what I mean.
Can I use "cell-Div" for 2D Tasks?
And If I am dividing a cell ( + Neutron absorber) into ( For example ) 5 layers, I still should use the "Burn 10" option?

You should have "burn 1" for any material included in the div cards.

Hello Mr.Jaakko,

I need to ask about the option " Sep #" in the division card. I cant understand the concept of geometry levels.
For example, If I have 10 cells for one materials divided into 5 layers, when I use the option "sep 0" and do check volumes, I got a comment saying : 1 cell, 5 sub regions. However, when I use "sep 1", I get: 10 cells, 50 sub regions.
Does that mean that "sep 0" averages the division affect while "sep 1" do it separately for each cell?

P.S.: My geometry is 2D hexagonal lattice.

Regards,
Reem

Have you looked at the geometry plot? Different depletion zones are plotted with different colours.
