Abstract:

A multipurpose gamma ray and neutron Monte Carlo program for describing the emergent backscattering or transmitted characteristics of photons or neutrons by slab was written. The program is set up to investigate gamma ray or neutron backscattering, absorption, and transmission in one, two, or three layers of different media. The information that may be obtained includes 1 the number albedo or transmitted, 2 the energy albedo or transmitted and 3 the angular distribution of the emergent number, energy, or dose. Sample results are given for both incident gamma rays and neutrons. Author
