General Information

The Codes:

MCNPX-PoliMi is built from MCNPX version 2.7.0.  Licenses for these two codes can be requested from the Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC) website (rsicc.ornl.gov). The workshop will be interactive, involving several radiation detection problems of interest to the group. Workshop attendees with the MCNPX and MCNP-PoliMi codes properly installed on their laptops can follow along. All of the exercises at the workshop will be done on the Windows version of MCNPX-PoliMi; Mac users can run a virtual Windows OS.
