Multi Physics Codes

Codes developed by KIT/ADE:

  • COUPLE fast running analyses for core layout and operational conditions
  • KIN3D neutron kinetics model for ultrashort transients in subcritical systems included in ERANOS
  • KORIGEN and C4P-TRAIN used for long-term phenomena, burn-up, radioactive decay, decay heat, radio-toxicity, preparation of cross-sections

Codes, where KIT/ADE contributes to development:

  • PARTISN code for neutron transport, coupled to SIMMER
  • SIMMER-III/IV codes for simulation of severe accidents for GEN-IV reactors

Other codes used:

  • ERANOS, MCNP deterministic codes for neutron transport
