Dave was born in Coldwater, Michigan, on April 23, 1928. He and his
brothers, William and Gaylord, grew up in Colon, MI, where they shared
many of the responsibilities of running the family farm. After graduating
from Colon High School, Dave studied engineering at Lawrence Institute
of Technology in Detroit (1946-1948). In 1948 Dave entered Flight-Training
School in the U.S. Navy, where he achieved the rank of Midshipman. In 1951,
Dave went into the Reserves and resumed his university education in physics
at Michigan State College (now Mich. State Univ.) in East Lansing. In the
following years, he completed an MS in Computer Science at the University
David joined the ORNL Physics Division in 1953 and became involved in experimental research in shielding at the Graphite Reactor (X-10 Pile). He was among the initial group joining Everett Blizard in forming the Applied Neutron Physics Division in July 1955. He attended the Oak Ridge School of Reactor Technology and later (1960-1962) followed Blizard in teaching shielding in ORSORT. He joined the NPD Shielding Design Group.
In FY-1963, Trubey, with S.K. Penny and Betty F. Maskewitz founded the Radiation Shielding Information Center (RSIC), which quickly became the premier world facility for maintaining radiation shielding data and making this information available to researchers in the nuclear power industry, defense, and medicine. Trubey followed Penny as RSIC manager (1967-1970). He took a year off to work in environmental sciences at ORNL (1970-1971). Returning to RSIC, he served as senior scientist until his retirement in 1991. David developed contacts and worked with international shielding scientists, largely in connection with developing standards. His peers, through the American Nuclear Society (ANS), recognized his work. He chaired the ANS Shielding & Dosimetry Division in 1974, and was named an ANS Fellow in 1976. He received the ANS Radiation Protection & Shielding Division Achievement Award in 1983, the ANS Standards Award in 1991, and won the ANS Rockwell Award in 1992 "for a lifetime of significant accomplishments in the field of radiation protection."
David is survived by his wife, Jean, of nearly 53 years, two sons, Robert
and Richard, and four grandchildren. David was always available as a mentor
and a consultant to RSIC/RSICC staff members and is sorely missed. Cards
may be sent to Mrs. Jean Trubey, 11734 Egret Court, Dunnellon, FL 34432.
Betty F. Maskewitz, who co-founded and directed the Radiation Safety Information and Computation Center, has earned the American Nuclear Society's 2003 Weinberg Medal.
The award was established in 1995 to honor ORNL Director Emeritus Alvin M. Weinberg and to provide international recognition for contributions to the understanding of the social implications of nuclear technology.
Maskewitz's award recognizes a career devoted to sharing radiation shielding technology and information throughout the world. Employed at Oak Ridge from 1952 until her retirement in 1988, Maskewitz worked in various areas of data processing and computational support. She is an internationally recognized specialist in the fields of information sciences and engineering physics.
Maskewitz co-founded and later directed the Radiation Shielding Information
and Computational Center, an international institute that is currently
known as the RSICC. She was named an ANS fellow in 1983.

Two U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission software packages transferred from the Energy Science and Technology Software Center, Oak Ridge, TN, to RSICC were processed this month. Please browse the computer code abstracts available at RSICC's web site for more information on these packages.
One newly frozen package and was added to the computer code collection this month.
The National Nuclear Data Center, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, New York, contributed this newly frozen release of the ENDF utility codes, version 6.13, which supersedes all previous versions of the codes. The programs are written to process ENDF-6 formatted files including all formats approved up to and including the November 2001 CSEWG meeting except for the Generalized R-Matrix resonance region format and the generalized format for covariances (file 30). The programs can also process ENDF-5 formatted files. The following codes are included in the system.
CHECKR ascertains whether an evaluated data file conforms to the ENDF
The programs should operate on any computer with sufficient memory and
a Fortran compiler conforming to the Fortran 95 standard. The SETMDC utility
configures CHENDF to run on Vax, workstations, PC's or any machine with
an ANSI Fortran compiler. The distributed version of the programs, STANEF,
CHECKR, FIZCON, PSYCHE, and INTER have been modernized to conform to the
Fortran-95 standard. The GETMAT, LISTEF, PLOTEF, and SETMDC meet the Fortran-95
standard but have not been modernized to incorporate the new features.
The code system was tested by RSICC on personal computers under Windows
2000 and Linux. NNDC provided the included executables created with Digital
Visual Fortran for Windows and Lahey Fortran 95 for Linux. SETMDC is a
small Fortran program designed to convert a computer program source for
use on different computers. Source files processed with SETMDC are included
in this distribution. The package is transmitted on a CD in a self-extracting,
compressed Windows file which includes the source codes, executables, documentation
and test cases. Reference: Informal report, (May 20, 2002). Fortran 95;
Vax, PC, Unix Workstations (P00333MNYCP04).
As years have gone by many different codes and applications have been sent to RSICC for stewardship. We currently have over 1700 analytical code and data packages and distribute as many each year to 73 countries in the world. To help 'categorize' each package, we have developed a database of 'Subject Categories' to attach applications to the packages at RSICC. Doing so requires investigation into each code package, user feedback from end use statements, and extensive RSICC staff experience and analysis so that we can deliver useful information each month on the 30 different categories we have identified thus far. Links to the package abstracts are embedded into the WWW version of the RSICC Newsletter. Feedback from our Newsletter community is very valuable so please direct your comments and/or suggestions to PDC@ORNL.GOV. Many packages in the RSICC code collection are in this subject category. A few are highlighted here for your review. September's code focus is Nuclear Data Generation for Transport Code Input.
RSICC attempts to keep its users/contributors advised of conferences, courses, and symposia in the field of radiation protection, transport, and shielding through this section of the newsletter.

MCNPX is the LANL all-particle, all-energy (eV-TeV) Monte Carlo transport code based on MCNP4C, LAHET, CEM, etc. MCNPX has been in active development since 1995, sponsored by the particle accelerator community. It has now become an accepted tool for a broad range of applications by nuclear engineers, physicists, and scientists. The MCNPX development effort has expanded the use of the Los Alamos tools to applications such as APT, waste transmutation, accelerator shielding and health physics, particle beam cancer therapy, space shielding and cosmic ray analysis, single event effects in semiconductors, radiography, and more detailed analysis of the effects of light and heavy ions in matter. In addition, the entire functionality of MCNP4C is retained. New variance reduction and data analysis techniques, many adapted from high energy accelerator methodologies, have also been added, such as the extensive 'mesh tally' capability which allows up to 3-d plotting of particle tracks, fluence and fluence-derived quantities, energy deposition, next event estimator generation contributions and particle sources.
The workshops include hands-on instruction, generally on PC Windows machines. Subject to participant export approval for the MCNPX beta test team, participants will be able to access the Fortran-90 version of MCNPX 2.4, the LA150 (150 MeV) cross-section data for over 40 isotopes for incident neutrons and protons, and 12 for photonuclear interactions, and a notebook of viewgraphs. Follow-up consultation for class participants will be provided.
Classes are taught by experienced MCNPX code developers and instructors.
