Reactors designed by Argonne National Laboratory

Nuclear Reactors designed by Argonne

Argonne developed and/or built experiments, research reactors, or prototypes of every kind of commercial nuclear reactor in the world today, as well as many research and training reactors… Nuclear reactors designed by Argonne

Software

Nuclear Engineering Division researchers have developed a number of large-scale computer codes for scientific and engineering applications. These codes are validated and maintained for application in a variety of nuclear energy research programs.

Fast Reactor Cross Section Processing Codes

  • ETOE-2 - A program for ENDF/B to MC22 data conversion
  • MC2-2 - A code to calculate fast neutron spectra and multigroup cross sections
  • SDX - A space dependent cross section generation capability

Diffusion and Transport Theory Codes

  • DIF3D - DIF3D's nodal option solves the multigroup steadystate neutron diffusion and (for cartesian geometry only) transport equations in two- and three-dimensional hexagonal and cartesian geometries.
  • DIF3DK - A Nodal Kinetics Code for Solving the Time-Dependent Diffusion Equation
  • VIM - A continuous energy neutron and photon transport code

Fuel Cycle / Depletion Codes

  • REBUS-3 - A system of codes designed for the analysis of reactor fuel cycles
  • RCT - Post-processor for the depletion-dependent results of REBUS-3/DIF3D nodal calculations
  • ORIGEN-RA - Modified version of the ORIGEN code developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory to perform nuclide transmutation calculations based on the flux history computed with REBUS-3 and RCT

Perturbation Theory Codes

  • VARI3D - Generalized perturbation theory code (computation of reactivity coefficient distributions and kinetics parameters)

Thermal-Hydraulic Codes

Reactor Dynamics and Safety Analysis Codes

  • SAS4A - Software designed to perform deterministic analysis of severe accidents in liquid metal cooled reactors (LMRs)
  • SASSYS-1 - Software designed to perform deterministic analysis of design basis and beyond-design basis accidents in liquid metal cooled reactor (LMR) plants
  • SAS-DIF3DK - Software designed to perform deterministic analysis of coupled neutronics/thermal-hydraulic transients in water-cooled thermal reactors

Surveillance and Diagnostics Codes

  • MSET - Software system for real-time process monitoring
  • PRODIAG - Software environment for producing customized diagnostic systems for continuous thermal-hydraulic (T-H) processes

Acquired Codes

  • TWODANT
  • KENO
  • WIMS
  • DRAGON
  • MCNP
  • FIDAP
  • RELAP5-Mod 3.2
