3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

This is a radiation shielding program which analyzes unknown dose rates using known radiation sources. It can also evaluate radiation sources from measured dose rates. For instance, dose rates measured at several points in the hot cell of WASTEF are introduced into WADOS, and as a result, Ci of radiation sources and their positions are estimated with structural arrangement data of the WASTEF cells. The later functional addition is very useful for actual operation of a hot cell and others.
NEA-1142/02
The code was originally written in non standard Fortran dialect and has been fully translated into Fortran 90, Fortran 77 compatible.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Point kernel ray tracing method (the same method as QAD code).

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Modeling of source form for input is available for cylinder, plate, point and others which are simplified geometrically.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Approx. 18 minutes are required to execute the typical sample problem.
top ]
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

This code is written for TSS (Time Sharing System). Problem-dependent input data are prepared interactively at the user terminal.
NEA-1142/02
Missing mathematical routines have been supplied from SSL-2, which are included in the standard distribution of the Lahey/Fujitsu Fortran 95 Compiler. For this reason the code is classified non-portable onto platforms which do not provide SSL-2 or the Lahey/Fujitsu Compiler.
  
The code operates in an interactive mode: the output is only viewable on the screen.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

Usual SSL (Scientific Subroutines Library) package (mathematical functions) is used for execution.
