3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

Reactivity, mean generation time and effective delayed neutron fraction can be calculated by exact or first order perturbation theory. Criticality factor corrected for the isotope dependence of the prompt fission spectrum  and the difference between the delayed neutron spectrum and the prompt fission spectra can also be calculated.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Direct and adjoint angular fluxes for unperturbed and perturbed cases are taken from the discrete ordinate code, and the reactivity etc. are calculated by the perturbation theory.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Only two-dimensional regular triangular geometry is considered. There is no restriction for the number of energy groups. The size of a problem is restricted by the available maximum region of the computer memory. At present only down-scattering and a Sn approximation up to N=8 is allowed.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Sample 1:  First order perturbation with S2, 4 energy groups
           3 probe samples for a mesh grid consisting of 30 x 15
           triangles: 0.11 sec on a SIEMENS 7890 computer
Sample 2:  Exact perturbation calculation with S2, 4 energy groups
for a mesh grid consisting of 30 x 15 triangles: 0.5 sec            on a SIEMENS 7890 computer
NEA-1155/01
NEA-DB ran the test case included in this package on an IBM 3083 computer. The following CPU times were required: 9.48 seconds (DIAMANT2); 2.18 seconds (TPTRIA).

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Anistropic scattering is allowed;  however, this option is not yet tested.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The present code reads the direct and adjoint angular flux and related data from the interface files created by the discrete ordinates transport code DIAMANT2. Group cross sections, fission spectra and delayed neutron data are read from an extended SIGMN-file.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

TPTRIA requires 130 K bytes plus dynamically  allocated space for working arrays roughly in the range of 3 times the product consisting of the number of triangles times the number of Sn directions times the number of energy groups, and uses 3 disk  files.
NEA-1155/01
Main storage requirements to run the test case on an IBM 3084 are: 1516K bytes (DIAMANT2); 576K bytes (TPTRIA).

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

This
code was designed to run under control of the modular code system KAPROS with the codes DIAMANT2 and GRUCAL. However, a stand-alone code could easily be prepared, if the read and write statements are  rewritten and all necessary data are provided.
