dc.descriptionCalculating the energy release in fuel elements is an important aspect of the modeling and design of nuclear reactors. Most of the energy is produced by fission, but a non-negligible percentage is coming from neutron capture reactions, such as (n, γ) or (n, α). We implement a previously developed method for the calculation of effective energy release using Serpent Monte Carlo code. We investigate the percentage of capture component in effective energy release for various models of VVER-1000 fuel: firstly, an equivalent cell, then fresh fuel assemblies of different compositions, differing in fuel enrichment and the presence of burnable absorbers. The results are compared to similar calculations previously done in MCNP 4 and MCU 5.en-US

  • 2017: 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference - Panama (ESTEC 2017)
    The 6th Engineering, Science and Technology Conference (ESTEC 2017) organized by the Universidad Tecnologica de Panama (UTP) is the most relevant conference, engineering-based, of our country. The topics of the conference are focused on areas of interest of Panama and the Latin America region, including: agroindustry, astronomy, bioengineering, education on engineering, energy and environment, ICT engineering, infrastructure and construction, logistics and transportation, manufacturing processes and material science, robotic, automation and artificial intelligence. This year, ESTEC partnered with IEEE Panama Section to ensure the quality of the peer-reviewed process; we received more than 180 full papers from 20 countries and 50% of those were accepted to participate in the conference and will be published in the conference’s proceeding. Furthermore, the conference included technical tours to the Cocoli’s Gate and the Miraflores Visitors Center of The Panama Canal and to the Wind Power Park in Penonome, Panama.
