Optimization of the Subspace Iteration Method for the Lambda Modes Determination of a Nuclear Power Reactor
<BR>In this paper, we propose different alternative approaches to optimize the subspace iteration method which obtains the dominant λ-modes of a nuclear power reactor. We present a variational acceleration for the iterative process, a coarse grain parallelizatization approach, and a multistep algorithm to choose efficient initial estimations for the subspace iteration method. We have tested the efficiency of the developed algorithms with a 3D realistic problem, corresponding to a static configuration of the reactor Ringhals I.
