1. NAME AND TITLE
GEM: Monte-Carlo Code for Simulating a Decaying Process of an Excited Nucleus.
Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc., Tokyo, Japan through the Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; Linux Based PC (P00540PC58600).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
GEM is a Monte Carlo code which simulates a decaying process of an excited nucleus. GEM calculates the types, numbers, and kinetic energies of particles emitted from an excited nucleus. An input file which includes the mass, charge, excitation energy, kinetic energy and the direction of motion of the excited nuclei produced after cascade or preequilibrium stage, is needed for execution. In order to estimate cross sections of particle productions, the output file needs to be edited.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The code is based on the generalized evaporation model and the Atchison fission model. Type and kinetic energy of an emitted particle are randomly selected according to the probability distribution. A simulation continues as far as evaporation is energetically possible.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Running time depends on the mass and excitation energy of a target.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
GEM runs on Linux based personal computers.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The excited energy
of a residual nucleus produced after evaporation process is not written in an
output file. To write this value in the output file, the following lines in
'main.f' should be modified. Add 'e1' in the write statements on line 165 and
187 (just before format statement 602 and 604), then the excitation energy of a
residual nucleus can be obtained.
