Re: Equilibrium xenon in decay steps

Actually, I did implement an option to change the normalization. The syntax of the branch is:

Code: Select all

branch <name> norm <f>
where <f> is a multiplier applied to the normalization defined using the "set power", "set powdens", etc. cards. I'm not 100% sure that this works with equilibrium xenon calculation, though, because I came up with the idea of switching the calculation off using the "xenon" and "samarium" branches before testing the method.

Could you give it a try and let me know if it works?

Thank you Jaakko, I tried that, setup two branches with half power by these definitions:

Code: Select all

Branch HOT-POW05P norm 1.0
Branch HOT-POW05C norm 0.5
Flux is different in both case, but multiplication factor is the same and also Xe135 macro XS, which means that Xe135 is not influenced by this setting.

OK. I'll need to fix that.
