openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups¶
- class openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups(group_edges)[source]¶
An energy group structure used for multigroup cross-sections.
- Parameters
group_edges (Iterable of float or str) –
The energy group boundaries in [eV] or the name of the group structure (Must be a valid key in the openmc.mgxs.GROUP_STRUCTURES dictionary).
Changed in version 0.14.0: Changed to allow a string specifying the group structure name.
- Variables
group_edges (np.ndarray) – The energy group boundaries in [eV]
num_groups (int) – The number of energy groups
- can_merge(other)[source]¶
Determine if energy groups can be merged with another.
- Parameters
other (openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups) – EnergyGroups to compare with
- Returns
Whether the energy groups can be merged
- Return type
- get_condensed_groups(coarse_groups)[source]¶
Return a coarsened version of this EnergyGroups object.
This method merges together energy groups in this object into wider energy groups as defined by the list of groups specified by the user, and returns a new, coarse EnergyGroups object.
- Parameters
coarse_groups (Iterable of 2-tuple) – The energy groups of interest - a list of 2-tuples, each directly corresponding to one of the new coarse groups. The values in the 2-tuples are upper/lower energy groups used to construct a new coarse group. For example, if [(1,2), (3,4)] was used as the coarse groups, fine groups 1 and 2 would be merged into coarse group 1 while fine groups 3 and 4 would be merged into coarse group 2.
- Returns
A coarsened version of this EnergyGroups object.
- Return type
- Raises
ValueError – If the group edges have not yet been set.
- get_group(energy)[source]¶
Returns the energy group in which the given energy resides.
- Parameters
energy (float) – The energy of interest in eV
- Returns
The energy group index, starting at 1 for the highest energies
- Return type
Integral
- Raises
ValueError – If the group edges have not yet been set.
- get_group_bounds(group)[source]¶
Returns the energy boundaries for the energy group of interest.
- Parameters
group (int) – The energy group index, starting at 1 for the highest energies
- Returns
The low and high energy bounds for the group in eV
- Return type
2-tuple
- Raises
ValueError – If the group edges have not yet been set.
- get_group_indices(groups='all')[source]¶
Returns the array indices for one or more energy groups.
- Parameters
groups (str, tuple) – The energy groups of interest - a tuple of the energy group indices, starting at 1 for the highest energies (default is ‘all’)
- Returns
The ndarray array indices for each energy group of interest
- Return type
- Raises
ValueError – If the group edges have not yet been set, or if a group is requested that is outside the bounds of the number of energy groups.
- merge(other)[source]¶
Merge this energy groups with another.
- Parameters
other (openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups) – EnergyGroups to merge with
- Returns
merged_groups – EnergyGroups resulting from the merge
- Return type
