3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV and Assembler language; TOSBAC5600 and FACOM M200.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
MORSE-ALB is an Sn-Monte Carlo-Sn (adjoint) coupling method for efficiently evaluating bulk shielding properties considering both the shielding transmission component and the streaming component for various reactor systems having many penetrations.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
MORSE-ALB considers penetrations and perturbations in relation to the total shielding. The transmission calculations of the entire shielding which can be described two-dimensionally are based on the two-dimensional Sn method, and streaming calculations through the penetrations section which assume complex geometry are accomplished by the albedo Monte Carlo method, producing shielding values. The shielding values which should be determined are calculated following combination of the neutron flux achieved by the aforementioned method and the adjoint neutron flux achieved by Sn transport calculations on the system around the detector at the outlet of the penetrations, followed by spatial channel theoretical expression.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
MORSE-ALB lacks flexibility along the coupling surfaces. It cannot handle adjoint transport calculations in a three-dimensional system. It has a tendency toward underevaluation.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
CPU time for a conventional iron shielding system was 41.85 min. CPU time for an iron shielding system with the density increased four-fold was 335.91 min.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
MORSE-ALB is operable on the TOSBAC5600 and the FACOM M200 computers. The TOSBAC5600 is used for Files 1 and 2 and the FACOM M200 is used for Files 3-6.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Fortran IV and Assembler language compilers are required.
