The use of a single energy grid results in a major speed-up in calculation, as the number of CPU time consuming grid search iterations is reduced to minimum.

Download organisation level data MS Excel Spreadsheet5. Some recent and upcoming events. Serpent has the capability to import CAD and unstructured mesh based geometries as part of the universe structure. October 13, M. Serpent 1 is no longer actively maintained, and all users are strongly encouraged to switch to Serpent 2 instead. Is this page useful?

Instead of calculating the cross sections by summing over the constituent nuclides during tracking, the values are read from pre-generated tables, which is another effective means to improve the performance. January 31, Beta-testing phase of Serpent 2 started. The built-in solvers are integrated to the transport simulation at source code level, and designed to provide solutions to coupled problems at a relatively low computational cost.

Log records Log records track the log data znd used by all subsystems. New code version, List of publications updated. This capability results in a more accurate description of the interaction physics in rfference applications, as the data in the cross section libraries is available only in K intervals. To help us improve GOV. Similar methodology has been used with other coupled Monte Carlo burnup calculation codes Haeck, ; Fridman, a; b. Doppler-broadening of cross cbrc A built-in Doppler-broadening preprocessor routine Viitanen, allows adjusting the temperatures of ACE format cross sections.


The recommended publication for referencing Serpent is: Fission and activation products and actinide daughter nuclides are selected for the calculation without additional user effort, and burnable materials can be sub-divided into depletion zones automatically. DBRC organisation-specific reference cost data. DBRC always reads from this data set, and when some change has to be applied, the change is written first to this data set.

Energy, 82 The burnup calculation capability in Serpent was established early on, and is entirely based on built-in calculation routines, without coupling to any external solvers. The data are available as i raw data as CSV files and ii summary data in Excel. Support for users is provided at the Serpent Discussion Forumand the Serpent Wiki acts as an on-line user manual. The values can also be obtained from a Monte Carlo based volume calculation routine or entered manually.

May 26, Serpent 1. We would therefore be very grateful if users would email the PbR data collection team at PbRdatacollection dh. The best way to validate the Monte Carlo based code sequence is to compare the results to reference Serpent full-core calculations. Comparison of effective multiplication factors and other integral parameters shows generally good agreement between different calculation codes, but significant discrepancies can be found in the rrference of individual nuclides.

This can be performed in a pre-processing stage or on-the-fly during the transport simulation Viitanen, Guife generation can be combined with a burnup or activation calculation performed using built-in automated calculation routines see below.

The original incentive for developing a photon transport fbrc was to account for gamma heating in coupled multi-physics simulations. To simplify the construction of HTGR ddbrc, Serpent provides a referenc command line routine that generates random particle distribution files for the explicit geometry model.

The main drawback of delta-tracking is that the track-length estimate of particle flux is not available, and reaction rates have to be calculated using the potentially less-efficient collision estimator.


Geometry and particle tracking Similar to other Monte Carlo codes the basic refetence description in Serpent relies on a universe-based constructive solid geometry CSG model, which allows the description of practically any two- or three-dimensional fuel or reactor configuration. The spatial integration domain can be defined by a combination of cells, universes, lattices and materials, or using a three-dimensional super-imposed mesh.

As a general rule, more than one set of RECON data sets is necessary if all the following conditions are true: Transport cross sections and diffusion coefficients calculated using several methods. Status, development and applications in In this source mode Serpent combines sbrc compositions of activated materials into photon emission spectra read from ENDF format radioactive decay data files.

Serpent started out as a simplified reactor physics code, but the capabilities of the current development version, Serpent 2, extend well beyond reactor modeling. The model works on several znd particles inside a pebble and pebbles inside the core and it has been tested in realistic double-heterogeneous reactor configurations consisting of over 60 million randomly positioned units Suikkanen, ; Rintala, The computational overhead from handling the unstructured configuration is moderate compared to a similar regular-lattice model.

Digital Character Animation 3 No. User-defined detectors tallies can be set up for calculating various integral reaction rates for neutrons and photons. Interaction physics Serpent reads continuous-energy cross sections from ACE format data libraries.

The drawback of the unionized energy grid approach is that computer memory is wasted for storing redundant data points. The original data set.
