ABSTRACT

The Supercell option of the WIMS-D4M code is used with a model for the Advanced Neutron Source design to illustrate the capability, and the results are compared with Monte Carlo. The capability is also used to successfully model Russian designed fuel assemblies with concentric tubes. The capability to model homogenized and resonance corrected fuel and to properly treat secondary regions containing resonance materials is particularly useful. The Supercell option is well suited to modeling non-lattice regions, such as, reflector, control and/or experimental regions of research reactors.
