3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER

4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
MADONNA is a modular code system for two-dimensional neutron streaming calculations in
reactor shielding with various shapes of void, such as cylindrical duct, annular duct, and stepped or
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
MADONNA is based upon a removal-diffusion method coupled with an albedo-transport equation.
The albedo-transport equations are solved in void regions with initial leakage currents obtained from
the diffusion equation solution for an imaginary system where the original voids are filled. The
removal-diffusion equation is then solved in the whole system where the voids are replaced with the
boundary conditions expressed in terms of the net neutron currents to facilitate the solution of the
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The principal restriction on the complexity of the problem is the availability of core storage. All
large modules are variably dimensioned. The array sizes are set for the particular problem being run
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Running times for this system are a function of the number of removal neutron groups, diffusion
neutron groups, spatial nodes in a calculational geometry and subdivisions at duct wall surfaces.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
MADONNA is operable on the IBM 370/169 computer. The amount of core storage required
depends upon the problem. All large modules are variably dimensioned.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS.
A Fortran IV G-level compiler is required.
