Fission Rate Axial AuxKernel

Calculates the amount of fission rate based on relative axial position from the ends of the fuel stack

Description

The model in FissionRateAxialAux calculates the fission rate from the user defined fuel stack top and bottom with a normalized sixth order polynomial function. (1) where is the normalized current node location, defined as (2)
