3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

LEOPARD is a unit cell homogenization and spectrum generation (MUFT-SOFOCATE type) program  with a fuel depletion option.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The MUFT-SOFOCATE homogeneous medium spectrum analyses with heterogeneous corrections are used. The monoenergetic  Amouyal-Benoist thermal disadvantage factor is applied at each of 172 SOFOCATE energy levels up to 0.625 eV. The U238 resonance integral is forced to agree with a generalized Hellstrand correlation.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

LEOPARD works with nuclides commonly used in water reactors. Thorium and U238 fuel chains are allowed.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Running time is about 15 seconds per case on  an IBM360/75. On a UNIVAC1108 the sample problem executes in 40 seconds.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

LEOPARD is an engineering design code featuring simple input requirements of physical data.
