flux results

Post by aizen » Sun Apr 01, 2012 2:31 pm


I am getting different results when comparing the flux in fuel between a detector i set and the
output file _dep.

my detector is defined as:
det 1 dc nst101c1
i am using a 3D geometry, and 100,000 histories.

the results i got are:

detector flux: 2.82646e+16 (0.00360 2466487)
dep_res fuel flux: 3.83946e+17

why do the results differ?

thank you

The detector flux is the integral over the cell. The flux in the _dep.m file is the integral flux multiplied by volume, which doesn't really make any sense. This questions keeps coming up over and over again, and I always forget to fix the units in the _dep.m file.
