## RSICC CODE PACKAGE CCC-809

### 1. NAME AND TITLE

MCART: Solve
the Time-Dependent Neutron Transport Equation.

**RESTRICTIONS:**

RSICC is
authorized to distribute MCART to US Universities Only. All other requests are
advised to contact the NEA Data Bank.

### 2. CONTRIBUTORS

Alberto Talamo, Illinois, USA through
the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.

### 3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER

C-Language; PC Linux (C00809PCX8600).

### 4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED

The MCART code solves, using the
method of the characteristics and three different numerical algorithms, the time
dependent neutron transport equation, with explicit representation of delayed
neutrons, in a bi-dimensional spatial domain for an arbitrary number of energy
groups.

### MCART
uses the method of the characteristics, and three different numerical
algorithms are used to solve the time dependent neutron transport equation with
explicit representation of the delayed neutrons. The code uses dynamic memory
allocation and therefore only the RAM memory limit sets the maximum number of
energy groups. The code contains OPENMP4 and OPENGL5 instructions for parallel
computing and plotting, respectively.

### 9. COMPUTER
SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS

### MCART
