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
Serpent 2.1.31 is available only for users from ČVUT (The Czech Technical University in Prague)
