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. 


This workshop will focus on advanced sources, complex tallies, and how to use variance reduction on your problems to help your tallies converge.  Users can create geometries using the software of their choice (Notepad, Nucwiz, the Visual Editor) because the focus will be on running the calculations and getting converged answers.


Participants are encouraged to bring their own input files to apply the methods from this workshop on their specific tasks.


This workshop will be taught using Nucwiz, MCNP®, and the Visual Editor.


Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop and take the workshop on their own system.  Please notify Randy when you register if you need a computer provided.


Lodging and Facilities

This course will be held in Las Vegas on the University of Las Vegas campus.


A hotel has not been set aside for the class.  If you need ideas for a hotel, there is an embassy suites hotel on Paradise and another on Swenson.  Both of these are east of the strip and would avoid strip traffic.  The Swenson hotel is closest to UNLV.


You will probably need a rental car, parking passes will be provided on the first day of the class.  The class will be held in the Thomas T. Beam Engineering Complex (Click for Google Maps) in room TBE B-367 starting at 8:30 AM.  You can park in the garage near the building PKG1 ( Click for Google Maps) in any marked student spots (white spaces) in the parking lots or anywhere on the 2nd thru top floors of the Cottage Grove Parking garage.  The garage can be accessed from Flamingo road.  UNLV classes are not in session so parking should not be a problem.  





To register, you must send proof that you are a licensed user of MCNP® to Randy Schwarz.  To do this, follow the instructions in this .pdf file.


After you have sent proof to Randy, you must also email the following information to Randy Schwarz (preferred) or call (509)539-8621 :
