The multi-physics interface is a set of routines, as well as input/output formats intended for easily bringing in detailed temperature and density fields to Serpent and at the same time automatically producing power distributions to be used in coupled codes.

List of multi-physics interface filetypes

Type Name Notes
1 Point-average For interpolation of point-wise data
2 Regular mesh For data on a regular cartesian or hexagonal mesh
3 Functional dependence User defined functional dependence can be defined on source code level
4 Tetrahedral mesh type Use interface type 7 instead.
5 Fuel behavior interface (piecewise constant) For coupling with fuel performance/behavior codes with 1.5 dimensional (z,r) coordinate system.
6 Fuel behavior interface (radial interpolation) For coupling with fuel performance/behavior codes with 1.5 dimensional (z,r) coordinate system.
7 Unstructured mesh Based on OpenFOAM file format.
