The software ADÉLA is a tool which aids manual core reload design. Core reload design is a difficult task requiring optimization of fresh fuel assembly types and optimization of fuel assembly placement in the core. ADÉLA runs on top of ANDREA and QUADRIGA and simplifies these tasks by automating redundant tasks and allowing user interaction through a friendly graphical user interface. Power distribution and other safety parameters may be automatically calculated and checked.

ADÉLA enables:

  • creating cross section libraries for the ANDREA code
  • ANDREA input files generation
  • running calculations with ANDREA
  • displaying and evaluating results of ANDREA calculations
