Intermediate Sources, Tallies, and Variance Reduction

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.


Nucwiz (click here for more information) is a graphical user interface used for the creation of Monte Carlo input files.  In this course, the efficiency of Nucwiz can be utilized to allow the workshop to move more quickly through geometry creation.  This enables a 5-day workshop to cover more intermediate and advanced topics and spend less time creating test geometries.
