Preliminary results of GODIVA-IV prompt burst modeling

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The dynamic computer model developed to simulate GODIVA-IV prompt bursts adequately predicts the magnitude of power bursts. Also, it demonstrates the characteristic features of prompt bursts in metal assemblies, such as the change in shape of power pulses and the ringing of fuel surfaces at the onset of inertial effects. The model will be used to test more sophisticated reactivity feedback coefficients and neutronic-hydrodynamic coupling schemes. It will also be used for a more detailed analysis of inertial effects.
