RSIC COMPUTER CODE PSR-060
1. NAME AND TITLE
RESPMG: Response Matrix Generation Code System.
O5S: Response Function Generator: An O5R Monte Carlo Code for Calculating Pulse Height
Distributions Due to Monoenergetic Neutrons Incident on Organic Scintillators.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV and Assembler Language; IBM 7090.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
RESPMG generates an accurate and detailed family of monoenergetic response functions or a
numerical matrix which accurately describes the pulse-height response of a unique organic scintillator
(unique in terms of atomic composition, volume, shape, and physical dimensions) to monoenergetic
neutrons, or other particles of interest, closely spaced in energy over the entire energy range of
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
RESPMG consists of some 25 subprograms and functions which may be roughly separated into three categories. The first group performs basically service functions--printing, punching, plotting, data input/output, etc.
RESPMG accepts, as input from the PSR-14/O5S results, a normally rather limited set of computed responses. To expand this limited set to the number and detail required for the final matrix, a group of programs known as the "TERP" package is used to perform a variety of services concerned with interpolation.
The final group of programs consists of those directly concerned with the operations and
computations involved with the calculation of the final matrix.

8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
RESPMG is operable on the IBM 360/370 or IBM 7090 computers.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Fortran IV and Assembler Language compilers are required.
