Application of the new multitrans SP3 radiation transport code in criticality problems and potential use in dosimetry

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    In the novel MultiTrans SP3 radiation transport code the advanced tree multigrid technique is applied to the simplified P3 (SP3) transport approximation. The tree multigrid is generated directly from stereolitography (STL) files exported by computer-aided design (CAD) systems, thus allowing an easy interface for construction and upgrading of the geometry. The deterministic MultiTrans code allows fast solution of complicated three-dimensional transport problems in detail, offering a new tool for calculation of quantities of dosimetric interest. In order to determine the feasibility of a new code, computational benchmarks need to be carried out. In this paper, an application of the MultiTrans code to criticality problem is for the first time reported.
