NRC advisors give nod to Hermes construction permit
Having completed its review of the construction permit application for Kairos Power’s Hermes test reactor early last month, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) recently submitted its conclusions to the agency, recommending approval.

This workshop will demonstrate a new tool for use with the MCNP(TM) radiation transport code tool known as p-study. The p-study tool effectively does total Monte Carlo by perturbing all physical configuration values accessible from the input stack and allows these to be propagated into a comprehensive tally uncertainty in the end. Specifically this workshop will serve as a tutorial on a new Operational MCNP GUI (OMG) that allows users to generate and run p-study to conduct this total Monte Carlo on their input stacks. Attendees are recommended to have MCNP6.2 installed on their laptop if they want to download the GUI and follow along in the tutorial, otherwise attendees can just observe. The workshop will start with a brief statistics review sufficient to understand p-study and will assume attendees have at least some familiarity with the MCNP code.
