3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

MOBIDIC calculates radial and axial diffusion coefficients in a fast reactor hexagonal regular infinite lattice composed of two media, fuel pins and coolant (which may be voided). A non-zero value of the buckling vector Br, Bz must  be given.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The program performs a numerical calculation of an analytical formula involving special functions and integrals.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM:  Bidimensional
coolant gaps must exist.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The running time is mainly related to the density of the coolant. Typically it is less than 1 CPU second.
NEA-1005/01
NEA-DB executed the test case included in this package  on CDC CYBER 740 in 1.2 seconds of CPU time.
