1. NAME AND TITLE
MRSPAK: A Code System To Generate a Text File Containing Combinatorial Geometry Data
Corresponding to PADL2 Geometry.
Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FLEX; VAX 11.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
MRSPAK is a suite of subroutines which generates a text file containing combinatorial geometry
for use with the PADL2 system.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
MRSPAK generates a text file containing combinatorial geometry data corresponding to PADL2
geometry. This allows users of MORSE, ACCEPT, and other radiation transport analysis packages
based on combinatorial geometry, to create geometry using the PADL2 system and then automatically
generate the combinatorial geometry data from the PADL2 representation. This is desirable since
creating geometry data in the combinatorial geometry format is tedious and error-prone.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The package is designed for the VAX family of computers and runs under VMS. The PADL2
package, a proprietary software from the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, must also
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
No study has been made by RSIC of typical running time for MRSPAK.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code was designed to run on the VAX under VMS.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
MRSPAK is written in FLEX, a Fortran pre-processor, which is distributed as part of PADL2 by
the University of Rochester.
