Alpha-like calculations with MCNP

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Alpha (time-absorption eigenvalue) calculations are not an explicit calculational option in MCNP. Nevertheless, it is possible to perform alpha calculations with MCNP. Such calculations are presently either very inefficient or require special coding or cross section library modifications. However, alpha-like calculations can easily be performed with MCNP using the KCODE option with neutron energy- or time-cutoffs. These approximate alpha-like calculations are described and tested.
