Access to the CPS Web pages has been growing over
the recent years. Graphs
with trends have been updated recently.
Integral Experiments Data for Model and Code Validation
Compilations and evaluations have been updated concerning
Shielding Experiments Data Base (SINBAD) at NEADB
Work is in progress on the International Reactor
Physics Benchmark Experiments Project. See IRPhE.
The International Fuel Performance Experiments Database
was recently enriched with new experiments and some evaluations of the
experiments were revised.
Training Courses & Tutorials:
Recently completed Workshops
Workshop on Computing Radiation Dosimetry
(CRD-2002) with embedded training course on MCNPX -
Monte Carlo Code System for Multiparticle & High Energy Applications,
was held at the Instituto Tecnologico e Nuclear (ITN), Sacavem, Lisbon,
Portugal 22-28 June 2002.
The MCNPX specific training was held
from 24-28 June. The Workshop proceedings will be printed in the autumn
2002. More details are provided in the CRD-2002
For 2002 the following training courses/workshops are planned:
MCNP - Introductory
Course including MCNP5 Features, from 9-13 September 2002 at
the University of Stuttgart, Germany
Physor 2002 Workshop in Korea 14-18 October
2002, hosted by KAERI
MCNPX Training course (November 2002 at SCK-CEN,
transport) workshop with tutorial, (end 2002/ early 2003, at NEA in Paris)
(see previous workshop
Cross-Section Processing System (summer, autumn 2002), Issy-les-Moulineaux,
France. (proposed programme)
Tutorials on deterministic radiation (DT)
transport codes (tentatively early 2003). The intention is to present
also recently developed tools for modelling 3D problems, including in particular
automated mesh generation, (X-Y-Z), (R-THETA-Z) and the visualisation of
the corresponding results to facilitate interpretation and for improved
documentation. Presentation and discussion of methods and ideas for
ensuring that the same models are used in MC and DT for benchmarking; development
of compatible and common mesh generation and visualisation tools for MC
and DT; Methods for 3D Sensitivity Analysis / Uncertainty Analysis should
also be demonstrated. The Data Bank Executive Group has strongly recommended
the development of such tools. If you are interested in participating,
please fill in the form.
The proposed courses, tutorials etc. will
be held depending on user interest and participation.
Meetings Sponsored by the Nuclear Science Committee
scheduled for the next two years and of interest to clients of the Computer
