ORILL Code

Purpose

ORILL Code is a 1D transmutation, fuel depletion (burn-up), and radiological protection code useful for nuclear research reactors design and operational safety. ORILL has been cooked at the Nuclear Safety Unit of the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), Grenoble, France.

General Features

Small:Code and nuclear data are small (only 4 Mo).
Fast:Vectorization and parallelization associated with Python/Scipy is transparently available.
User friendly:ORILL is designed to address practical questions about isotopes inventories, decay heat, dose rate, photons spectrum. It is usable by everyone for 1D point-flux calculation at the speed of light.

Prerequisites

ORILL needs only Python 2.7 or later, with Scipy and standard modules installed (re, io, yaml, time). Python is available on all platforms (WinPhyton, MiniConda, Debian/Ubuntu, Intel Distribution,...).

Installation

Uncompress ORILL files in a directory where a Python 2.7+ shell is available (with Scipy). In the Python shell, type:

>>> from ORILL import ORILL_CODE
>>> ORILL_CODE('ORILL_TEST.yml')

The command input file 'ORILL_TEST.yml' located in (/input) subdirectory is processed and the corresponding output files are created in (/output) subdirectory. Have a look at ORILL_TEST.yml file to understand the file syntax. It is recommended to edit this file with Notepad++ with the YAML markup language.
