Conference Proceedings Paper
The Development of Model Generators for Specific Reactors
CNS 24th Nuclear Simulation Symposium - 2012 October 15-16

Authoring reactor models is a routine task for practitioners in nuclear engineering for reactor design, safety analysis, and code validation. The conventional approach is to use a text-editor to either manually manipulate an existing model or to assemble a new model by copying and pasting or direct typing. This approach is error-prone and substantial effort is required for verification. Alternatively, models can be generated programmatically for a specific system via a centralized data source and with rigid algorithms to generate models consistently and efficiently. This approach is demonstrated here for model generators for MCNP and KENO for the ZED-2 reactor.
