3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED
A 2-dimensional calculation of the 2-group, space-dependent neutron diffusion equations is performed in r-z geometry using an arbitrary number of groups of delayed neutron precursors. The program is designed to simulate fast reactivity excursions in light water reactors taking into account Doppler feedback via adiabatic heatup of fuel. Axial motions of control rods may be considered including scram action on option.
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The differential equations are solved at each time step by an explicit finite difference method using two time levels. The stationary distributions are obtained by using the same algorithm.
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM
No restriction to the number of space points and delayed neutron energy groups besides the computer size.
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Running time depends upon problem size, increasing almost linearly with the number of space points.
Running time is about 0.0001 sec on IBM 360/91 for one space point during one time step.
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM
: Transients may be calculated by several successive steps.
8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS
A program is also available for r-, x-, z-, x-y- and x-y-z geometries.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS
Depends on problem size, e.g. 480k memory for about 10,000 space points and 6 groups of delayed neutron precursors.
