openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups¶

class
openmc.mgxs.
EnergyGroups
(group_edges=None)[source]¶ An energy groups structure used for multigroup crosssections.
Parameters: group_edges (Iterable of Real) – The energy group boundaries [eV]
Variables:  group_edges (Iterable of Real) – The energy group boundaries [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: bool

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 2tuple) – The energy groups of interest  a list of 2tuples, each directly corresponding to one of the new coarse groups. The values in the 2tuples 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: openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups 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: 2tuple 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: numpy.ndarray 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: openmc.mgxs.EnergyGroups
