Usage and download¶
ORILL is located at Github
If you want to contribute, let us know.We have a mailing list located at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Uncompress ORILL files in a directory where a Python 2.7+ shell is available (with Scipy). In the Python shell, type:
>>> from ORILL import ORILL_CODE >>> ORILL_CODE('ORILL_TEST.yml')
The command input file ‘ORILL_TEST.yml’ located in (/input) subdirectory is processed and the corresponding output files are created in (/output) subdirectory.
Input file syntax¶
Flux: [1.0e+14, 1.0e+14, 1.0e+14] # 3-points flux at [0.0253 eV, 0.5 MeV, 14.0 MeV] (neutron/cm2/s) # Fuel depletion: 3-points flux values, adjust the flux multiplier in "Periods:" to adequate Fission Power # Transmutation with cold neutrons only: adjust thermal flux with wavelength(cold)/wavelenght(T) factor [adjusted_thermal_flux, 0.0, 0.0] Nuclides: Cl: 0.1 Na: 0.1 U-235: 0.1 # Valide nuclides names are: 'U','PU239','94Pu238','PU-240','Bi-194m','BI194M2','83-BI-194m2',... # Names are not case sensitive, metastable states are m = m1, m2, m3 # Elements like 'U','Al','Ni' are converted into isotopes (according natural abundance mass fraction) Mass: 10.0 Unit: 'w' # Mass (total, grams) used only if Unit = 'w' # Unit for nuclides set: mass fraction('w'), grams('g'), mol('mol'), atoms('atm'), becquerels('bq') Periods: [['Period1', , 1.0, 'MMPA'], ['Period2', [1.0e+3,1.0e+4,1.0e+5], 0.0, 'DIAG']] # [['Identifier', [Duration(s),...], Flux multiplyer, 'Method'],...] # 'Identifier' is used to identifiy output files on each period # [Duration(s),...] are durations steps to compute in each period # Flux multiplyer: 1.0 (full flux), 0.0 (zero flux, pure decay), 0.5 (50% flux) # 'Method' are: 'MMPA', 'BDF' or 'DIAG' Depth: 6 # Computation depth into chains: 6 to 12 recommanded (more depth = more nuclides = more computation time)
