Description

The RADTRAN computer code for transportation risk analysis, which has been under continuous development at Sandia National Laboratories since 1977, has evolved from a purely research tool into a publicly available with a variety of applications. This expansion of the user community has substantially increased the need to make the system easier to use without decreasing its capabilities or the quality of output. A large set of modifiable RADTRAN input files has been available via TRANSNET for several years. One approach to assisting the user involves adding annotations/information to each of these files. A second approach is providing additional help ... continued below

Description

The RADTRAN computer code for transportation risk analysis, which has been under continuous development at Sandia National Laboratories since 1977, has evolved from a purely research tool into a publicly available with a variety of applications. This expansion of the user community has substantially increased the need to make the system easier to use without decreasing its capabilities or the quality of output. A large set of modifiable RADTRAN input files has been available via TRANSNET for several years. One approach to assisting the user involves adding annotations/information to each of these files. A second approach is providing additional help in building new/modifying old input files. Keeping the proposed information/annotation files separate from but closely coupled to the modifiable input files within the TRANSNET shell system allows the modifiable input files to remain as regular input files while providing rapid, automatic access to, useful information about the analysis. In this way, the sample input files remain intact as regular RADTRAN input files and any files generated using associated on-line menus or editors may be readily converted into new input files. A single sample file is selected and used as an example to illustrate the prototype help features.
