3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN IV and Assembler language; IBM 360/370 (A) or CDC 7600 (B).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
MORSE-SGC is a multipurpose neutron and gamma-ray transport Monte Carlo code system designed as a tool for solving most shielding problems. Through the use of multigroup cross sections, the solution of neutron, gamma-ray, or coupled neutron-gamma-ray problems may be obtained in either the forward or adjoint mode. Time dependence for both shielding and criticality problems is provided. General three-dimensional geometry may be used with an albedo option available at any material surface. Isotropic or anisotropic scattering up to a P16 expansion of the angular distribution is allowed. It will accept geometry descriptions either of the combinatorial geometry type or of the KENO (array) type. Core storage requirements for cross sections are reduced by using direct access storage when needed.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Monte Carlo methods are used to solve the forward and the adjoint transport equations. Quantities of interest are then obtained by summing the contributions over all collisions, and frequently over most of phase space.
Standard multigroup cross sections such as those used in the PSR-63/AMPX-II code system may be used as input; CCC-82/ANISN cross section formats may be converted to the PSR-63/AMPX-II AMPX format using the LAVA code. Anisotropic scattering is treated for each group-to-group transfer by utilizing a generalized Gaussian quadrature technique.
