The Woodcock method: an alternative neutron tracking method

B. Cochet, A. Jinaphanh, B. Forestier

The Woodcock tracking method is an alternative simulation method designed to perform neutron tracking. The main advantage of this method is to accelerate the simulation (in particular for geometrical systems with lots of volumes) without introducing any bias in the simulation. As a counterpart, this algorithm shows bad performances when large discrepancies are observed on the cross-sections.
This method has been implemented so that the user is able to specify which part of the geometry is to be treated using this method. Thus the MORET 5 code allows the use of different tracking algorithms for various parts of the geometry.
