McStas: Virtual_mcnp_output

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The Virtual_mcnp_output Component

Detector-like component that writes neutron state parameters into a 'virtual source' neutron file with MCNP/PTRAC format.

Identification

Description

Detector-like component writing neutron state parameters to a
virtual source neutron file with MCNP/PTRAC format.
The component geometry is the full plane, and saves the neutron state as
it exits from the previous component.
Format is the one used by MCNP 5 files :

position_X position_Y position_Z dir_X dir_Y dir_Z energy weight time

energy is in Mega eV
positions are in cm and the direction vector is normalized to 1.

%BUGS
This component will NOT work with parallel execution (MPI).

EXAMPLE:
To create a file collecting all neutron states with MCNP5 format
COMPONENT fichier_sortie = Virtual_mcnp_output(
filename = "exit_guide_result.dat")
at the position where will be the Virtual_mcnp_input.
