Breeding blankets are designed to ensure tritium self-sufficiency in deuterium- tritium fusion power plants. In addition to this, breeder blankets play a vital role in shielding key components of the reactor, and provide the main source of heat which will ultimately be used to generate electricity. The design of blankets is critical to the success …

It is known that a priori information on the distribution of neutron fluxes over neutron transport models can improve the computational efficiency of Monte Carlo transport calculations via the use of variance reduction techniques. The uncertainty lies in finding a method which obtains this information as fast and effortlessly as possible. A number …
