3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

MANYCASK calculates radiation dose rate distribution around casks by superposing contribution of dose rates from many casks. Dose rate distribution around each cask  is given as an analytical function of cask-geometry parameters, detector position relative to the cask and radiation dose rate on the cask surface. The radiation dose rate on each cask surface can be supplied from another code SMART. One can also adopt measured dose rate on the cask surface.
