Анотація

У статті описано валідацію розрахунків коефіцієнта розмноження Монте-Карло кодом Serpent 2. Валідацію проведено порівнянням з іншими нейтронно-фізичними кодами. Опис валідаційної моделі та дані для порівняння взяті з бенчмарку «A VVER-1000 LEU and MOX Assembly Computational Benchmark, NEA/NSC/DOC(2002)10», у якому містяться результати розрахунку нейтронно-фізичних характеристик тепловидільної збірки реактора ВВЕР-1000 такими кодами як-от: MCU, TVS-M, WIMS8A, HELIOS, MCNP4B, MULTICELL. Також виконано порівняння з кодом версією Serpent 1, яка є попередньою версією розглянутого коду Serpent 2. Отримані результати свідчать про коректність розрахунку ефективного коефіцієнта розмноження нейтронів ядерного палива за допомогою коду Serpent 2 та можливість його застосування на одному рівні з кодами TVS-M та HELIOS, які використовуються для підготовки константного забезпечення систем внутрішньореакторного контролю атомних станцій.
