Neutron transport in Eulerian coordinates with bulk material motion Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • 2015 Elsevier B.V. A consistent, numerically stable algorithm for the solution of the neutron transport equation in the presence of a moving material background is presented for one-dimensional spherical geometry. Manufactured solutions are used to demonstrate the correctness and stability of our numerical algorithm. The importance of including moving material corrections is shown for the r-process in proto-neutron stars.
