MCBEND is a powerful Monte Carlo software tool for general radiation transport analysis for shielding and dosimetry analysis.
MCBEND is a general purpose radiation transport code that can calculate neutron, gamma-ray and charged particle transport in sub-critical systems; coupling of the different radiation types is also possible. MCBEND models the transport of individual particles accurately by using a very fine energy group representation of nuclear data and a flexible geometry modelling package. In effect the code simulates what happens in practice, and performs a numerical experiment of the system under study. This is known as the Monte Carlo Method.
In addition to its powerful geometry modelling package MCBEND has versatile source description options and powerful automatic acceleration options for maximum productivity. Nuclear data libraries exist for MCBEND from a variety of sources including UKNDL, JEFF, ENDF/B-VI and JENDL.
MCBEND is validated for an extensive range of applications. The validation database covers many of the materials and geometries that are encountered in the nuclear industry and is subject to ongoing review and enhancement.
MCBEND has been successfully applied to such problems as:
MCBEND is supported by Visual Workshop, which means that checking for geometry errors is easy.
MCBEND is available for both Windows and Linux
