Abstract

A leakage model based on B1 Homogeneous Equations has been recently implemented in continuous-energy Monte Carlo code TRIPOLI4. This leakage model algorithm iterates between the point-wise Monte Carlo simulation and a B1 Homogeneous Equations solver till reaching a final critical state in Monte Carlo simulation. The two advantages of our leakage model compared with the others are: we use critical flux spectrum to generate the multi-group constants for solving the B1 Homogeneous Equations; the leakage coefficients calculated are considered in point-wise Monte Carlo simulation. This leakage model is validated by a pre-designed numerical experiment simulated with continuous-energy TRIPOLI4 and the obtained results are also compared with those from SERPENT leakage model and deterministic leakage model in ECCO code. Finally, our leakage-corrected multi-group constants are used in transport theory based core calculation and they give out consistent multiplicative factor and neutronic balance.
