3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

BERMUDA is a radiation transport system for one-, two-, and three-dimensional geometries, developed for shielding calculations. Both neutron transport and gamma transport modules are included.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Angular flux distribution is obtained by integrating the transport equation over the line segment along each  angular discrete ordinate at each spatial mesh point. A fine energy  grid method is used, with a rebalancing scheme concerning the number of gain and loss particles (or photons) over each coarse mesh region and also in each energy grid.
In gamma transport, the group-angle transfer matrix takes into account Compton scattering, pair production and electron annihilation. Photon energy range is from 14 MeV to 10 keV.
