An efficient parallel computing scheme for Monte Carlo criticality calculations
2009 (English)In: Annals of Nuclear Energy, ISSN 0306-4549, E-ISSN 1873-2100, Vol. 36, no 8, 1276-1279 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The existing parallel computing schemes for Monte Carlo criticality calculations suffer from a low efficiency when applied on many processors. We suggest a new fission matrix based scheme for efficient parallel computing. The results are derived from the fission matrix that is combined from all parallel simulations. The scheme allows for a practically ideal parallel scaling as no communication among the parallel simulations is required, and inactive cycles are not needed. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
