Required Software

The laboratory experiments were designed to provide experimental data that will be compared to results of common Nuclear Engineering computer codes. You are requested to obtained the codes at the beginning of the semester. The software can be obtained from: RSICC.
The codes tat you will need from RSICC:

  • MCNP - Get the latest version (currently 6.2).
  • SCALE - we will use the depletion code ORIGIN which is part of this package
We will also use NJOY21 for cross section calculations. This code is open source and much easier to compile on Linux than Windows. The code was installed on the lab computers.
To use the code in windows 10 it is best to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux using the Ubuntu app from the windows store. Once this system in installed and working you will need to update it using:
sudo apt-get update        # Fetches the list of available updates
sudo apt-get upgrade       # Strictly upgrades the current packages
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade  # Installs updates (new ones)
		
Install the required software as listed on the NJOY21 site:
  • gcc -use:
    sudo apt install gcc
  • gfortran -use:
    sudo apt-get install gfortran
  • python - should be already installed
  • cmake - use:
     sudo apt-get -y install cmake
folow the instruction on the NJOY21 web site to complete the installation.
