Introducing the domestic multi-dimensional particle-in-cell code AZERAP

Jam yazdanpanah

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 1-12


  The domestic plasma modeling framework AZERAP is introduced and its capabilities in simulating the plasma based accelerators and intense beam-plasma interaction are discussed. The current first beta-release of AZERAP exploits the fully kinetic, electromagnetic relativistic PIC algorithm as its numerical ...  Read More

Effects of fusion plasma ions on Aluminum and Tungsten samples using a plasma focus device: a comparison study

Ali Adeli Ahmadabadi; Zahra Shahbazi rad; Fereidon Abbasi Davani; Behjat Ghasemi

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 13-18


  In this research, the effect of ions produced in deuterium plasma on Tungsten (W) and Aluminum (Al) plates has been investigated using a plasma focus device with the specifications of (C=10.4 μF, V=23 kV, E=2.75 kJ). The W samples used because it is one of the key elements in the Tokamak device. Because ...  Read More

Vahidreza Babaei; Peiman Rezaeian; Sedigheh Kashian; Reza Pourimani; Azam Akhavan

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 19-22


  In this paper, the spectrophotometric properties of a colored Nickel-based solution complex (Nickel nitrate hexahydrate and Methyl Orange (MO)) were investigated as a stable chemical dosimeter for using in radiation processing of agricultural products. Its simple synthesis method as well as low cost ...  Read More

Dechanneling and the energy loss of protons along planar directions of Si

Sepideh Shafiei; Mohammad Lamehi-Rachti

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 23-28


  In the present paper, the dechanneling and the energy loss of protons at the energy interval of 1400 to 2200 keV along the {100} and the {110} planar directions of Si were studied by the simulation of the measured channeling Rutherford back-scattering spectra based on the exponential dechanneling function ...  Read More

Low-energy deuteron-deuteron elastic scattering in cluster effective field theory

Mohammadhosein Farzin; Mahdi Radin; Mahdi Moeini Arani

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 29-38


  We study the low-energy deuteron-deuteron elastic scattering using the cluster effective field theory formalism up to next-to-leading order (NLO). For this purpose, we initially focus on determination of the unknown effective field theory coupling constant values using the phase shift analysis and available ...  Read More

Isotopic discharge concentrations of Tehran research reactor using deterministic and Monte Carlo methods

Farrokh Khoshahval; Mohammad Rajaee; Nafiseh Tehrani

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 39-51


  Actinide concentration and activity analysis of the nuclides resulted from the burnup (depletion) process during nuclear reactor operation lifetime is an essential problem in reactor design. Inventory and the corresponding activities of the Tehran Research Reactor (TRR) are evaluated using different ...  Read More

‎Development of SUAP toolkit for performing uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis in fuel performance ‎m‎odeling‎

Hamed Khodadadi; Kamyar Sabetghadam

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 53-60


  Probabilistic uncertainty and sensitivity analysis is frequently recommended for safety and reliability assessment of computer simulations. For this purpose, SUAP has been developed, and its latest version is capable of working on analysis results obtained using five well-known nuclear codes (i.e. FRAPCON, ...  Read More

Radiological assessment of different varieties of pistachios produced in Iran

Reza Pourimani; Monire Mohebian; Mobina Abdi

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2023, Pages 61-67


  Nuclear radiations are harmful to the human body. The main sources of nuclear radiation are the decay chains of U-238, U-235, and Th-232 and also some radionuclides as K-40, which are present in small amounts in the materials of the earth's crust, including plants, rocks, soil and water. Radioactive ...  Read More
