Control rods in between fuel tubes

Post by armansalehi » Tue May 25, 2021 1:58 pm

I am trying to implement control rods surrounding individual fuel tubes.

At the moment I have created a pin lattice with moderator and fuel tubes, however I am not sure how to implement control rods in between the fuel tubes.
The control rods have smaller dimensions than the fuel tubes and would be located in between fuel tubes.

I know from previous available examples that some fuel tubes would be kept empty and then pin control rods could be replaced. However, given that I want the number of fuel tubes to stay constant and have smaller control rods in between, my best guess would be to create separate surfaces and cells for the control rods and create a cell lattice? However, I am not entirely sure if this would work.
