Transport coefficients for modeling fission dynamics

Published: 4 March 2022| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/rcndf6sbns.1


Transport coefficients are important ingredients in dynamical investigations of a nuclear fission process, which determine the dynamical evolution of the fissioning system. The inertia (mass) and friction (dissipation) tensors influence substantially on different observables. The proper calculation of these tensors is a necessary condition for correct modeling of the fission process. The calculation of the inertia and friction tensors is presented for a large variety of nuclear shapes generated by a {c, h, α} parametrization. The inertia tensor is calculated within the Werner-Wheeler approximation for incompressible irrotational flow. The friction tensor is calculated within the one-body and two-body mechanisms of nuclear dissipation. A numerical code is made available, which calculates all these quantities.
