Monte Carlo based diffusion coefficients for LMFBR analysis

Van Rooijen, W. F. G.*; Hazama, Taira ; Takeda, Toshikazu*

For the reactor physics analysis of fast critical assemblies as well as LMFBRs, the diffusion coefficient is one of the required pieces of data. In the present analysis, the diffusion coefficient is determined using the Benoist-formalism, which is based on directional collision probabilities. For LMFBR analysis including void regions, the Benoist-formalism breaks down if two-dimensional (slab or slab-like) void regions are present. Furthermore, the Benoist-style assumption of zero buckling is questionable in fast reactors. Research is being done to identify improved cell calculations, in order to calculate the diffusion coefficient in one- and two-dimensional unit cells containing real void regions.
