Plotting Source Generation Points for a KCODE Calculation
The Visual Editor also allows the user to display source generation points as a function of the KCODE cycle. The user can select up to 20 cycles that will be printed out to files; the visual editor then can display the source generation locations for each of these cycles.
In this figure, the source generation points (not collision points) for assemblies in a cask are plotted. The right hand plot shows the cumulative souce generation points for the first 20 cycles. The plotting of the assembly geometry inside each hex has been turned off by setting the level to 1. In MCNP, each universe has a "level number" that indicates the nesting level of the universe. The visual editor lets you set the plot level number to remove the plotting of the geometry at higher levels. This geometry has a lattice inside of a lattice and thus goes down to level 5. In the left hand plot, a blow up of the center assemblies is made and the plotting is at level 3 showing the assembly hex lattice for the pins. The pins inside each hex are not plotted because their geometry is at level 5. These plots were made using the Windows version of the Visual Editor
