Isotropic Scattering in a Cylindrical Furnace, Benchmark 2

Application ID: 119391

This model simulates a cylindrical furnace with isotropic scattering. It validates the use of the Discrete Ordinates Method for 2D axisymmetric cases, comparing the results with the highly accurate Monte Carlo method. The setup and reference Monte Carlo values are given in:
