McSAFE project


High-Performance Monte Carlo Methods for Safety Demonstration
- from Proof op Concept to realistic Safety Analysis and Industry Applications -

DNC is actively taking part in the European research project McSAFE.

The McSAFE project aims at the development of efficient Monte Carlo methods
for the calculation of the detailed power distribution in full-size nuclear reactors.

The project consist of several work packages. DNC is Work Package Leader for WP 4,
which is concerned with the development of dynamic Monte Carlo.
In this context DNC is developing a dynamic version of the current MCNP Monte Carlo code,
based on MCNP6.2

Other tasks in McSAFE WP4 are
- variance reduction
- efficient parallelisation
- verification
