F7 tally vs. power distribution

  1. Jan 5, 2017 #1
    Hello Everyone
    Hope you will be fine
    I am trying to estimate assembly wise power distribution of pwr core. Can anyone let me know if F7 tally correspond directly to power distribution or else i need some additional calculations?

    F7 is an fission energy deposition tally, as opposed to power, but it should normalize to give the same normalized power distribution.

    Dear Astronuc thank you for your kind reply Tally normalized to 1 or normalized to average value of the F7 tally? and can you tell me any alternate method of calculating Power distribution please.
