3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

GUI2QAD is an aid in preparation of input for the included QAD-CGPIC program, which is based on CCC-493/QAD-CGGP and PICTURE. QAD-CGPIC, which is included in this distribution, is a Fortran code for neutron and gamma-ray shielding calculations by the point kernel method. Provision is available to interactively view the geometry of the system. QAD-CG calculates fast-neutron and gamma-ray penetration through various shield configurations defined by combinatorial geometry specifications. The code can use the ANS-6.4.3 1990 buildup factor compilation (26 materials).

4. METHODS

The code QAD-CGPIC is based on point kernel method and has a provision to select either GP or Capo's build up factors.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Details on restrictions and limitations are available in the RSICC code manual CCC-493/QAD-CGGP. Because CCC-493 was obsoleted by CCC-645/QAD-CGGP-A, the CCC-493 documentation is not online but is included with this package. This package includes a Graphical User Interface to facilitate use.
