Uncertainty Propagation with Fast Monte Carlo Techniques
2014 (English)In: Nuclear Data Sheets, ISSN 0090-3752, E-ISSN 1095-9904, Vol. 118, 367-369 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Two new and faster Monte Carlo methods for the propagation of nuclear data uncertainties in Monte Carlo nuclear simulations are presented (the "Fast TMC" and "Fast GRS" methods). They are addressing the main drawback of the original Total Monte Carlo method (TMC), namely the necessary large time multiplication factor compared to a single calculation. With these new methods, Monte Carlo simulations can now be accompanied with uncertainty propagation (other than statistical), with small additional calculation time. The new methods are presented and compared with the TMC methods for criticality benchmarks.
