Src rate at Serpent

Post by İsmet Acar » Sun May 30, 2021 9:39 pm

Hello all I'm trying to Investigate tritium production and neutron heating for a plasma reactor. However I have a problem about reading detector outputs. I'm using MT -4 (macroscopic total heating cross section) for detector. What is its unit? Is there a place that I can find unit of MT's? Also I'm using serpent 2.1.30.


My code

set title "ITER Tokamak"

mt = -4: Watts (criticality source mode); Joules (external source / dynamic simulations).

For detector SuISI, you might want to consider if it should be defined as “dr -4 void" instead of "dr -4 water".
