Multi-physics modelling of small modular reactors with Serpent 2 and thermal hydraulics solvers

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference AbstractScientific

    Abstract

    In this work coupled problems with neutronics and thermal-hydraulics are solved with Serpent 2 Monte Carlo code and thermal hydraulics solvers. The focus is on modelling small modular reactors (SMRs). To demonstrate that a steady state coupled neutronics/thermal hydraulics problem can be solved with the coupled code system, a SMR core in a steady state at full power with multiphase flow will be modelled.
