3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV; IBM 370/3033.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The original MORSE code (CCC-127/MORSE) was a multipurpose neutron and gamma-ray transport Monte Carlo code. It was 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 could be obtained in either the forward or adjoint mode. Time dependence for both shielding and criticality problems is provided. General three-dimensional geometry could be used with an albedo option available at any material surface. Isotropic or anisotropic scattering up to a P16 expansion of the angular distribution was allowed.
CCC-203/MORSE-CG incorporated the Mathematical Applications, Inc. (MAGI) combinatorial geometry routines.
CCC-368/MORSE-B modified the Monte Carlo neutron and photon transport computer code MORSE-CG by adding routines which allow various flexible options.
MORSE-H is an attempt to bring together into one program the most commonly used options. This
has been done by combining routines from MORSE-CG, some of them modified, with those of
MORSE/B, also with some modification, and some additional routines. The routines of MORSE-B
were, in turn, partly derived from modifications of routines from CCC-258/MORSE-E.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Fluxes of neutrons or photons (or both in a coupled case) may be scored by either a next-event estimator, which provides the fluence at point detectors, or by a track-length estimator, which provides volume-integrated fluxes. In either case a restart option is available to enable a second or subsequent run to continue tracking particles in a case which was terminated for any reason.
The specification of a fixed source of particles is by up to 20 separate source regions of various
geometric shapes, with particles born isotropically, monodirectional, or with directions in a defined
code about the +z direction.
