This article considers two ex-core PWR sample problems and compares the single eigenvalue approach with an all Monte Carlo decoupled approach with different approximations at the point of decoupling. It provides support and technical background to a journal article that contains the principal results.

Abstract

This article considers two ex-core PWR sample problems and compares the single eigenvalue approach with an all Monte Carlo decoupled approach with different approximations at the point of decoupling. It provides support and technical background to a journal article that contains the principal results. This pair of articles constitutes the second part, focusing on comparison with PWR GEN II and III ex-core decoupled results, of an extended paper – the first part concentrated on methodology.
