Title: Extension of MINOTAUR to higher-order spatial functions

Abstract

MINOTAUR, a generalized multidimensional geometry discrete ordinates kernel that can be used to calculate the particle flow through a complicated geometrical arrangement of materials, has been extended to use higher-order within-node spatial flux expansions. MINOTAUR is an improved version of the CENTAUR code, which was developed at the Savannah River Site by DeHart, Pevey, and Parish for flat intranode flux distributions. CENTAUR was later extended to linear spatial flux shapes by Grove and Pevey. Both of these codes were limited to two-dimensional generalized geometries, for which the regions are bounded by arbitrarily oriented line segments.
