Description

Serpent is a multi-purpose three-dimensional continuous-energy Monte Carlo particle transport code, developed at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Ltd. The development started in 2004, and the code has been publicly distributed by the OECD/NEA Data Bank and RSICC since 2009. Serpent started out as a simplified reactor physics code, but the capabilities of the current development version, Serpent 2, extend well beyond reactor modeling. The applications can be roughly divided into three categories:

  • Traditional reactor physics applications, including spatial homogenization, criticality calculations, fuel cycle studies, research reactor modeling, validation of deterministic transport codes, etc.
  • Multi-physics simulations, i.e. coupled calculations with thermal hydraulics, CFD and fuel performance codes
  • Neutron and photon transport simulations for radiation dose rate calculations, shielding, fusion research and medical physics
