TransportOperator(chain_file=None, fission_q=None, dilute_initial=1000.0, prev_results=None)¶
Abstract class defining a transport operator
Each depletion integrator is written to work with a generic transport operator that takes a vector of material compositions and returns an eigenvalue and reaction rates. This abstract class sets the requirements for such a transport operator. Users should instantiate
openmc.deplete.Operatorrather than this class.
- chain_file (str, optional) – Path to the depletion chain XML file. Defaults to the file
- fission_q (dict, optional) – Dictionary of nuclides and their fission Q values [eV]. If not given,
values will be pulled from the
- dilute_initial (float, optional) – Initial atom density [atoms/cm^3] to add for nuclides that are zero in initial condition to ensure they exist in the decay chain. Only done for nuclides with reaction rates. Defaults to 1.0e3.
- prev_results (ResultsList, optional) – Results from a previous depletion calculation.
- dilute_initial (float) – Initial atom density [atoms/cm^3] to add for nuclides that are zero in initial condition to ensure they exist in the decay chain. Only done for nuclides with reaction rates.
- prev_res (ResultsList or None) – Results from a previous depletion calculation.
Noneif no results are to be used.
Runs a simulation.
- vec (list of numpy.ndarray) – Total atoms to be used in function.
- source_rate (float) – Power in [W] or source rate in [neutron/sec]
Eigenvalue and reaction rates resulting from transport operator
Initial atom density for nuclides with zero initial concentration
Returns volume list, cell lists, and nuc lists.
- volume (dict of str to float) – Volumes corresponding to materials in burn_list
- nuc_list (list of str) – A list of all nuclide names. Used for sorting the simulation.
- burn_list (list of int) – A list of all cell IDs to be burned. Used for sorting the simulation.
- full_burn_list (list of int) – All burnable materials in the geometry.
Performs final setup and returns initial condition.
Returns: Total density for initial conditions. Return type: list of numpy.ndarray
- chain_file (str, optional) – Path to the depletion chain XML file. Defaults to the file listed under
