Development of a Novel Detector Response Formulation and Algorithm in RAPID and its Benchmarking
(Virginia Tech, 2019-10-24)
Solving radiation shielding problems, i.e. deep penetration problems, is a challenging task from both computation time and resource aspects in field of nuclear engineering. This is mainly because of the complexity of the ...
Development of a Novel Fuel Burnup Methodology and Algorithm in RAPID and its Benchmarking and Automation
(Virginia Tech, 2018-08-02)
Fuel burnup calculations provide material concentrations and intrinsic neutron and gamma source strengths as a function of irradiation and cooling time. Detailed, full-core 3D burnup calculations are critical for nuclear ...
