Source Terms for Advanced Reactor Spent Fuel Applications

In this training course, participants will learn how to generate the core inventory for several advanced reactor configurations and how to analyze and post-process these data for use in other computational tools.

Participants will learn: how to use SCALE’s TRITON reactor physics sequence to generate core inventory data in the form of ORIGEN nuclide concentration files (f71); how to perform decay calculations of the determined inventory with ORIGEN; how to interrogate the f71 files with the OBIWAN utility to ensure a thorough understanding of the available cases, the data at each position, and the applied normalizations. The data post-processing will include the generation of an easy-to-use inventory interface file (II.JSON) and relevant examples for further post-processing. This training course will provide best practices for generating f71 files and teach multiple approaches to interrogate and modify the output.

No prior knowledge of SCALE is required
