Abstract class for processing energy dependent fission yields

Parameters:chain_nuclides (iterable of openmc.deplete.Nuclide) – Nuclides tracked in the depletion chain. All nuclides are not required to have fission yield data.
Variables:constant_yields (collections.defaultdict) – Fission yields for all nuclides that only have one set of fission yield data. Dictionary of form {str: {str: float}} representing yields for {parent: {product: yield}}. Default return object is an empty dictionary
classmethod from_operator(operator, **kwargs)[source]

Create a new instance by pulling data from the operator

All keyword arguments should be identical to their counterpart in the main __init__ method

  • operator (openmc.deplete.TransportOperator) – Operator with a depletion chain
  • kwargs (optional) – Additional keyword arguments to be used in constuction
static generate_tallies(materials, mat_indexes)[source]

Construct tallies necessary for computing fission yields

Called during the operator set up phase prior to depleting. Not necessary for subclasses to implement

  • materials (iterable of C-API materials) – Materials to be used in openmc.lib.MaterialFilter
  • mat_indexes (iterable of int) – Indices of tallied materials that will have their fission yields computed by this helper. Necessary as the openmc.deplete.Operator that uses this helper may only burn a subset of all materials when running in parallel mode.
static unpack()[source]

Unpack tally data prior to compute fission yields.

Called after a openmc.deplete.Operator.__call__() routine during the normalization of reaction rates.

Not necessary for all subclasses to implement, unless tallies are used.


Return nuclides with non-zero densities and yield data

Parameters:nuclides (iterable of str) – Nuclides with non-zero densities from the openmc.deplete.Operator
Returns:nuclides – Union of nuclides that the openmc.deplete.Operator says have non-zero densities at this stage and those that have yield data. Sorted by nuclide name
Return type:list of str

Return fission yields for a specific material

Parameters:local_mat_index (int) – Index for the material with requested fission yields. Should correspond to the material represented in mat_indexes[local_mat_index] during generate_tallies().
Returns:library – Dictionary-like object mapping {str: {str: float}. This reflects fission yields for {parent: {product: fyield}}.
