3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

SUSD calculates sensitivity coefficients for one and two-dimensional transport problems. Variance and standard deviation of detector responses or design parameters can be obtained using cross-section covariance matrices.  In neutron transport problems, this code is able to perform sensitivity-uncertainty analysis for secondary angular distribution  (SAD) or secondary energy distribution (SED).

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The first-order perturbation theory is used to  obtain sensitivity coefficients. The method described in the distributed report is employed to consider SAD/SED effect.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Variable dimension is used so that there is no limitation in each array size but the total core size.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

It depends on type, dimension and size of problems to be solved.
NEA-1151/03
This revised version of the code has only been compiled by NEA-DB on IBM 3090 and VAX 8810 computers. No test cases were available for execution.
