What’s New in 0.12.0


This release of OpenMC includes an assortment of new features and many bug fixes. In particular, the openmc.deplete module has been heavily tested which has resulted in a number of usability improvements, bug fixes, and other enhancements. Energy deposition calculations, particularly for coupled neutron-photon simulations, have been improved as well.

Improvements in modeling capabilities continue to be added to the code, including the ability to rotate surfaces in the Python API, several new “composite” surfaces, a variety of new methods on openmc.Material, unstructured mesh tallies that leverage the existing DAGMC infrastructure, effective dose coefficients from ICRP-116, and a new cell instance tally filter.
