3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

NucWiz is a program that can set up and run Monte Carlo calculations for radiation transport problems. The input file is constrained to a number of simple geometries, source, and detector configurations. The user interface allows a user to specify a simple geometry configuration, select from specific source geometries, and then specify detector types and locations. Once these parameters are specified, a complete Monte Carlo input file will be generated that can be run from within NucWiz. The output file can also be viewed directly from NucWiz. NucWiz is designed to create simple geometries with simple sources and simple tallies. This allows for 100 shield/source/tally combinations. Only one source and one shield geometry is allowed per input file, however, multiple tallies and tally configurations are allowed.

4. METHODS

A menu-driven graphical interface that allows a user to dynamically creates the input file for MCNP©. As each element is added to the input file, the input file is completely regenerated to include this new element. NucWiz will detect if any of these elements interfere with each other and issue an error message, although care should be taken by the user to avoid this, since, there still may be configurations that are not accurately detected. The resulting input file can then be run using the monte carlo code installed on the user's computer, either within NucWiz or at the command prompt.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Must have a working Monte Carlo executable to run created input files.  The graphics used DirectX.  A DLL to run DirectX is shipped with the program.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The interactive running times depends upon the complexity of the input file being created.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Initially NucWiz will export to and MCNP® formatted file, future enhancements will include exporting to Penelope and other formats.

8. RELATED OR AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

Users must independently purchase the Monte Carlo program that will be running the input file.
