KENO V.a is a multigroup
Monte Carlo
code that solves the
Boltzmann transport equation
and is used extensively in the criticality safety community to calculate the effective multiplication factor of systems with fissionable material. In this work, a continuousenergy or pointwise version of KENO V.a has been developed by first designing a new continuousenergy crosssection format and then by developing the appropriate
Monte Carlo
transport procedures to sample the new crosssection format. In order to generate pointwise cross sections for a test library, a series of crosssection processing modules were developed and used to process 50 ENDF/BVI Release 7 nuclides for the test library. Once the crosssection processing procedures were in place, a continuousenergy version of KENO V.a was developed and tested by calculating 46 test cases that include critical and calculational benchmark problems. The Point KENOcalculated results for the test problems are in agreement with calculated results obtained with the multigroup version of KENO V.a and MCNP4C. Based on the calculated results with the prototypic crosssection library, a continuousenergy version of the KENO V.a code has been successfully developed and demonstrated for modeling systems with fissionable material.

...At Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), continuousenergy versions of KENO V.a and KENOVI have been developed, which remove the limitations inherent in the multigroup versions of these codes.[2] Previous publications have focused on the development and testing of a standalone pointwise version of KENO V.a.[
