Workshop Description

Participants MUST get MCNP® from RSICC prior to the class.  Email proof by following the steps in this .pdf file.  You must email this proof to Randy Schwarz with your registration. 


The Visual Editor is a Graphical User Interface for MCNP®.  The Visual Editor is provided at no cost, but participants must get the MCNP® package from RSICC. 


All participants must have a valid copy of the MCNP® code obtained from RSICC because the Visual Editor will not run without the MCNP® cross sections contained in this package and both MCNP® and the Visual Editor are export controlled.  For more information on obtaining MCNP® and the Visual Editor, Click Here.

This workshop will be taught using the most recent versions of MCNP® and the Visual Editor Code. 


The workshop combines teaching on MCNP® physics, along with instructions on how to use the Visual Editor. Computer demonstrations and exercises will focus on creating and displaying input files with the Visual Editor. Exercises in creating MCNP® geometries including lattices and universes will be covered along with details on how to create complex sources.  Demonstrations of advanced visualization work using MCNP® will also be made. Participants are encouraged to bring their own input files for viewing and modifying in the visual editor. 


Computers are provided with one student per computer.  Participants are also welcome to bring their own laptop and take the workshop on their own system.   For a more detailed course description, click here.
