MCNP Perturbation Capability for Monte Carlo Criticality Calculations

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The differential operator perturbation capability in MCNP4B has been extended to automatically calculate perturbation estimates for the track length estimate of k{sub eff} in MCNP4B. The additional corrections required in certain cases for MCNP4B are no longer needed. Calculating the effect of small design changes on the criticality of nuclear systems with MCNP is now straightforward.
