McStas: Shielding_calculator Component

[ Identification | Description | Input parameters | Output parameters | Links ]

The Shielding_calculator Component

Calculating lateral shielding thickness required to attenuate dose rate from gammas arising from coating capture to a level specified by MaxRate.


  • Author: Rodion Kolevatov
  • Origin: IFE
  • Date: August 2018
  • Version: 1.0


Start of the trace-region in which SCATTER events should be logged.
Whenever a SCATTER occurs in components between this one and its counterpart Scatter_logger_stop the neutron state is logged.
The log is kept in memory - but only for one single
numerical neutron at a time, so there should be no real danger of memory overrun.

WARNING: This is a contributed Component.
