We investigate application of goal-oriented mesh adaptivity to the SP
We demonstrate the level of accuracy this method can achieve using two-dimensional and three-dimensional numerical test cases for one-group and two-group models and compare results with more traditional mesh refinement and uniformly refined meshes. The test cases consider situations in which the radiative flux of a source is shielded and are designed to prototypically explore the range of conditions under which our methods improve on other refinement algorithms. In particular, they model strong contrasts in material properties, a situation ubiquitous in nuclear engineering.
