Neutronic thermal hydraulic

  1. May 11, 2012 #1
    Hi there,
    I'm gonna couple WIMS & CITATION as neutronic codes with PARET as an thermalhydraulic code.
    Please let me know if there is any resources, papers or tips and tricks to do so.

    Another member was doing something similar with COBRA.

    There are various current programs to couple core simulation (neutronics) codes with advanced T/H or CFD codes. Basically one simply needs to appropriately couple the codes so the output of one is properly input to the other. This is particularly important if one uses time-dependencies while the other is steady-state.

    I'm not familiar with the I/O of either code system.
