As in PAR reports of previous years, the activity of radiation transport by means of Monte Carlo modelling has proceeded along twin tracks: development and application. The development is directed at calculating local responses within eigenvalue calculations (as employed in reactor cores or storage arrays of fissile material).

Abstract

As in PAR reports of previous years, the activity of radiation transport by means of Monte Carlo modelling has proceeded along twin tracks: development and application. The development is directed at calculating local responses within eigenvalue calculations (as employed in reactor cores or storage arrays of fissile material). Currently considered application of presented method is that of the monitoring of the corium position in PWR severe accident scenarios. This is carried out in collaboration with IRSN (French Institute for Radiation Protection and Safety).
