overlap in geometry

Post by alexey28 » Thu Jun 24, 2021 10:27 am

Ana, Hello!

My task is to calculate the change in the isotopic composition of the very small spheres in the nuclear reactor vessel. If I set the sphere in parallel with the basic geometry, there is an "overlap".
If I ignore this warning will I have a correct calculation of the nuclide composition change for these spheres?

I suggest you for example exclude the regions of the spheres from the base geometry.

Thanks for the reply!
So I just need to get the values for the spheres, how do I exclude the spheres?

Not knowing your exact model it is difficult to give exact answers. Basically, if you have defined that your spheres are in some universe surrounded by surf S (for example cell sphere sphere_universe sphere_material -S), then just add S to the surface listing of the base universe cell, thus defining that the base universe is outside S.
