Description

Presented are preliminary results of a sensitivity study on mesh sizing and diffusion coefficient on a the core multiplication factor in a pebble bed reactor core simulation. Nonphysical behavior is observed for ranges of mesh size and diffusion coefficients. A guideline was established for avoiding this problem in subsequent models.
