MCNP Visual Software Free 19




MCNP is a general-purpose Monte Carlo radiation transport code that can simulate neutron, photon, electron, or coupled neutron/photon/electron transport in three-dimensional geometries with complex materials and sources. MCNP is widely used for nuclear engineering, radiation protection, medical physics, and other applications that require accurate modeling of radiation interactions with matter.

However, MCNP has a steep learning curve and requires users to write complex input files that describe the geometry, materials, sources, and tallies of the problem. To facilitate the creation and visualization of MCNP input files, several graphical user interfaces (GUIs) have been developed over the years. One of the most popular and powerful GUIs for MCNP is the Visual Editor, which was originally developed by Randy Schwarz at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and later adapted to work with MCNPX by NASA.


What is the Visual Editor?




The Visual Editor is a Windows-based software that allows users to create and modify MCNP input files using graphical tools such as menus, buttons, dialogs, and mouse operations. The Visual Editor can display the geometry, materials, sources, and tallies of an MCNP input file in various ways, such as wireframe, solid, or ray-traced views. The Visual Editor also has features such as wizards, surface creation tools, lattice creation tools, source point generation tools, cross section plotting tools, tally plotting tools, 3D dynamic plotting tools, and help packages that can assist users in building complex models and analyzing the results.


How to get the Visual Editor?




The Visual Editor is not included in the official distribution of MCNP from the Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC). Users who want to use the Visual Editor must obtain it separately from RSICC or from other sources. The current RSICC release of the Visual Editor is version 25, which works with MCNPX version 25 and MCNP6.1 version 25. Users can order the code from RSICC at [this site].


Alternatively, users can download beta versions of the Visual Editor that are developed following each release of MCNP. The latest beta version can only be obtained by attending a Visual Editor workshop organized by Randy Schwarz. Users can find more information about the workshops and other services offered by Randy Schwarz at [this site].


Are there any free alternatives to the Visual Editor?




The Visual Editor is a commercial software that requires users to pay a license fee to use it. However, there are some free or open source alternatives that can also provide graphical interfaces for MCNP. One example is MCNPydE, which is a Python library for extracting data from MCNP output files. It requires Python, Matplotlib, and Numpy to run. Users can download MCNPydE from [this site].


Another example is PyNESTEDit (formerly known as PyNE), which is a Python-based GUI for creating nested geometries in MCNP. It uses PyQt4 for the GUI elements and PyOpenGL for the 3D rendering. Users can download PyNESTEDit from [this site].


Conclusion




The Visual Editor is a powerful and popular GUI for MCNP that can help users create and modify input files and visualize the results. However, it is not included in the official distribution of MCNP and requires users to pay a license fee to use it. Users who want to use the Visual Editor must obtain it separately from RSICC or from other sources. Alternatively, users can try some free or open source alternatives that can also provide graphical interfaces for MCNP.
