Abstract In a previous paper, a parallel version of the Monte Carlo criticality safety code KENO Va was presented based on only one parallel algorithm. Results for a light water reactor problem using this algorithm on the Kendall Square Research supercomputer 3 (KSRI) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) gave speedup factors of up to 34. In this paper, we present results for another real-life problem, namely, the fuel drain tanks (FDTs) associated with the molten salt reactor experiment. The FDT results have been obtained using seven different algorithms the one algorithm discussed in Ref. 1 plus six additional algorithms. In addition, the results of a parametric study in which the number of generations is varied are also presented in this paper.
