McStas: Vitess_input

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Links ]

The Vitess_input Component

Read neutron state parameters from VITESS neutron filename.

Identification

  • Site:
  • Author: Kristian Nielsen
  • Origin: Risoe/ILL
  • Date: June 6, 2000

Description

Source-like component reading neutron state parameters from a
VITESS neutron filename. Used to interface McStas components or
simulations into VITESS. Each neutron is 104 bytes.

Example: Vitess_input(filename="MySource.vit", bufsize = 10000, repeat_count = 2)

%BUGS
We recommend NOT to use parallel execution (MPI) with this component.
