Recent Developments in the MCNP-POLIMI Postprocessing Code

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The design and analysis of measurements performed with organic scintillators rely on the use of Monte Carlo codes to simulate the interaction of neutrons and photons, originating from fission and other reactions, with the materials present in the system and the radiation detectors. MCNP-PoliMi is a modification of the MCNP-4c code that models the physics of secondary particle emission from fission and other processes realistically. This characteristic allows for the simulation of the higher moments of the distribution of the number of neutrons and photons in a multiplying system. The present report describes the recent additions to the MCNP-PoliMi post-processing ... continued below
