1. NAME AND TITLE
PSU-LEOPARD/RBI 90.1: A Spectrum Dependent Non-Spatial Depletion Code.
Ruder Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Yugoslavia, through the NEA Data Bank, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; IBM PC.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
PSU-LEOPARD is based on the mainframe code LEOPARD, developed by Westinghouse (see CCC-343/LEOPARD) and later modified by Pennsylvania State University. PSU-LEOPARD is a spectrum dependent non-spatial depletion code. It differs from the standard LEOPARD code in two aspects: generation of tables with polynomial coefficients representing macroscopic cross sections in terms of depletion and boron concentration; and input simplifications for calculations of the Three Mile Island reactor (a subroutine was added to accommodate this type of reactor). RBI version 90.1 of PSU-LEOPARD includes a restart option, numerically more stable polynomial fit, PC timing routines, and a few other new options. Group constants are fitted by polynomials in burnup and in soluble boron concentration providing a complete set of data for automated core depletion.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The fast neutron energy range is divided into 54 energy groups and the fast constants are calculated using B1 and Grueling-Goertzel approximations. The neutron thermal energy range is divided into 172 energy groups and the thermal constants are averaged over the Wigner-Wilkins spectrum.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The energy range is from 0 eV to 10 MeV with 0.625 eV cutoff between the fast and thermal groups.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Approximate running time per one depletion step (neutron spectrum calculation, few-group constants generation, and depletion).
PC-386 with 80387 coprocessor: 12 seconds on 20 MHz PC-386
8 seconds on 25 MHz PC-386/Cache
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
PSU-LEOPARD runs on a PC 80386 personal computer with a math coprocessor.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code is written in Fortran 77. The executable files included in the package were created on an 80386 personal computer with 80387 math coprocessor under MS-DOS 4.01 using the Microsoft Fortran 5.0 compiler.
