In nuclear engineering, the λ -modes associated with the neutron diffusion equation are applied to study the criticality of reactors and to develop modal methods for the transient analysis. The differential eigenvalue problem that needs to be solved is discretized using a finite element method, obtaining a generalized algebraic eigenvalue problem whose associated matrices are large and : Amanda Carreño, Luca Bergamaschi, Angeles Martinez, Antoni Vidal-Ferrándiz, Damian Ginestar, Gumersi.

The Eigenvalue Problem For a computational node m in Cartesian geometry, the time-dependent behavior of the neu-tron flux is governed by the following nodal balance equations, given in terms of the node-aver-age flux (), precursor density (), the surface average net File Size: KB.

ITERATIVE METHODS FOR EQUIVALENT DIFFUSION THEORY PARAMETERS We start from the multigroup diffusion equations written for the whole core G -V- DgVCg q- E,g = ~-~(hX, U~fh~h q- Eh,) (I) h where h is the eigenvalue, Og is the group-g heterogeneous flux and the cross section notation is Cited by: Chapter 4: The Diffusion Equation Introduction We have seen that the transport equation is exact, but difficult to solve.

Moreover, we only really need the scalar flux ⃗, since we really want to compute reaction rates. In order to obtain that, we must then use the diffusion.

The objective of this paper is to present a foundational theory for the Fourier stability analysis of k-eigenvalue transport problems with flux-dependent cross section feedback. The value of providing such a theory is threefold: (1) it provides a pedagogical example to illuminate the fundamental nature of coupled iteration schemes for reactor Cited by: 2.

It consists of two primary components: (1) a grey (one-group) diffusion eigenvalue problem that is solved via Wielandt-shifted power iteration (PI) and (2) a multigrid-in-space linear solver.

Information is presented about the iterative behavior of selected reactor neutronics problems applying the finite-difference diffusion theory approximation to neutron transport.

The neutron flux distribution in the core is now determined by solving Eqs. (6) and (7) alternately. The neutron flux convergence criterion is given by If the neutron flux distribution satisfies the above condition, the leakage coeffieients also satisfy the following condition, as is readily seen from Eqs.

The eigenvalue problem is solved during the steady-state initialization prior to a transient, as well as during fuel depletion analysis. The solution of K-eigenvalue problem is commonly required for the analysis of fission -based systems. The prime interest is to evaluate the fundamental mode eigenvalue (K -eff) and the associated shape of neutron flux.
