4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
BREESE-II implements the albedo option of the random walk and associated estimation to detectors in the MORSE Monte Carlo code.
The first version of BREESE had a fixed number of outgoing polar angles and the number of
outgoing azimuthal angles was a function of the value of the outgoing polar angle only. An
examination of differential albedo data led to this modified version, BREESE-II, which allows the
number of outgoing polar angles to be dependent upon the value of the incoming polar angle and the
number of outgoing azimuthal angles to be a function of the value of both incoming and outgoing polar
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
BREESE-II implements the albedo option in MORSE by providing 1) replacements for the default
routines ALBIN and ALBDO in MORSE, 2) an estimating routine, ALBDOE, compatible with the
SAMBO package in MORSE, and 3) a separate program that writes a tape of albedo data in the proper
format for ALBIN. The albedo data is a function of incident energy group, incident polar angle, and
reflected energy group. Albedo routines perform the reflection and allow estimating contribution from
the albedo point to the detector location.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
CCC-203/MORSE-CG(1) is required as a basic MORSE source.
PSR-131/CARP must be run prior to BREESE-II to create an albedo data set to be used as input
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
On the IBM 370/3033 computers, BREESE-II ran in 4 s and MORSE-CG ran in 4 min, 49 s.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
BREESE-II is operable on the IBM 360/370 and 3033 computers. It required 270 K of storage.
MORSE-CG requires 420 K of storage.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran IV compiler is required. RSIC tested BREESE-II with a FORTH compiler.
