Realizing a detector for burnup materials

Post by aizen » Mon Jun 25, 2012 6:08 pm


i would like to ask for instructions for writing a detector when the material is used for burnup calculations.
i understand that the name change but i can't figure out how to name it now.

thank you

If burnable material "<mat>" is used in a pin-structure, the code renames it as "<mat>p<n>r<m>", where <n> is the pin index (= universe number) and <m> is the ring index (if the material was divided into multiple rings by entering a value greater than 1 after the "burn" entry in the material card). You should be able to use this name in the detector calculation. Also see Sec. 7.3 and 8.2 in Serpent manual.
