VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Tietotie 3, Espoo, FI-02044 VTT, Finland
The Serpent Monte Carlo reactor physics burnup calculation code has been developed at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland since 2004, and is currently used in 100 universities and research organizations around the world. This paper presents the brief history of the project, together with the currently available methods and capabilities and plans for future work. Typical user applications are introduced in the form of a summary review on Serpent-related publications over the past few years.
Key words: Serpent / Monte Carlo / Reactor physics / homogenization / burnup calculation
