Kotlyar, D and Shwageraus, E (2013) On the use of predictor-corrector method for coupled Monte Carlo burnup codes. Annals of Nuclear Energy, 58. pp. 228-237. ISSN 0306-4549Full text not available from this repository.
This paper investigates the effect of the burnup coupling scheme on the numerical stability and accuracy of coupled Monte-Carlo depletion calculations. We show that in some cases, even the Predictor Corrector method with relatively short time steps can be numerically unstable. In addition, we present two possible extensions to the Euler predictor-corrector (PC) method, which is typically used in coupled burnup calculations. These modifications allow using longer time steps, while maintaining numerical stability and accuracy. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
