Title: Sesame IO Library User Manual Version 8

Abstract

This document is a user manual for SES_IO, a low-level library for reading and writing sesame files. The purpose of the SES_IO library is to provide a simple user interface for accessing and creating sesame files that does not change across sesame format type (such as binary, ascii, and xml).

  • The OCCSS software is a version of a mainframe-based application developed for the EPA's National Contract Laboratory Program (CLP). OCCSS is designed to automate the determination of contractual compliance and completeness of data submitted to EPA under the RAS programs of CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act) and SARA (Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act). The manual provides the user with instructions for running OCCSS software on the PC. Descriptions of and instructions for each menu are detailed in the following sections. The user should have a working knowledge of PC DOS prior to utilizing the system.
  • Elegant stands for ``Electron Generation and Tracking,`` a somewhat out-of-date description of a fully 6D accelerator program that now does much more than generate particle distributions and track them elegant, written entirely in the C programming language, uses a variant of the MAD input format to describe accelerators, which may be either transport lines, circular machines, or a combination thereof. Program execution is driven by commands in a namelist format. This document describes the features available in elegant, listing the commands and their arguments. The differences between elegant and MAD formats for describing accelerators are listed. A series of examplesmore » of elegant input and output are given. Finally, appendices are included describing the post-processing programs.« less
  • Monteburns is a fully automated tool that links the Monte Carlo transport code MCNP with the radioactive decay and burnup code ORIGEN2. Monteburns produces a large number of criticality and burnup results based on various material feed/removal specifications, power(s), and time intervals. The program processes input from the user that specifies the system geometry, initial material compositions, feed/removal specifications, and other code-specific parameters. Various results from MCNP, ORIGEN2, and other calculations are then output successively as the code runs. The principle function of monteburns is to transfer one-group cross section and flux values from MCNP to ORIGEN2, and then transfermore » the resulting material compositions (after irradiation and/or decay) from ORIGEN2 back to MCNP in a repeated, cyclic fashion. The basic requirement of the code is that the user have a working MCNP input file and other input parameters; all interaction with ORIGEN2 and other calculations are performed by monteburns. This report serves as a user`s manual for monteburns. It describes how the code functions, what input the user must provide, the calculations performed by the code, and it presents the format required for input files, as well as samples of these files. Monteburns is still in a developmental stage; thus, additions and/or changes may be made over time, and the user`s manual will change as well. This is the first version of the user`s manual (valid for monteburns version 3.01); users should contact the authors to inquire if a more recent version is available.« less
  • The theory, numerical algorithm, and user documentation are provided for a new ''Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CVT)'' method of filling a region of space (2D or 3D) with particles at any desired particle density. ''Clumping'' is entirely avoided and the boundary is optimally resolved. This particle placement capability is needed for any so-called ''mesh-free'' method in which physical fields are discretized via arbitrary-connectivity discrete points. CVT exploits efficient statistical methods to avoid expensive generation of Voronoi diagrams. Nevertheless, if a CVT particle's Voronoi cell were to be explicitly computed, then it would have a centroid that coincides with the particle itselfmore » and a minimized rotational moment. The CVT code provides each particle's volume and centroid, and also the rotational moment matrix needed to approximate a particle by an ellipsoid (instead of a simple sphere). DIATOM region specification is supported.« less
  • The Small Signal Stability Package (SSSP) consists of two eigenvalue programs MASS and PEALS along with a data base program. This volume contains two user manuals: one for the programs MASS and PEALS and one for the data base program. The dynamic data and part of the program control data are common to MASS and PEALS and, therefore, a single manual is provided for both programs. Data applicable only to one of the programs is clearly identified in the manual. The MASS-PEALS manual describes the general structure of the dynamic data file for dynamic data supplied in OH, EPRI, IEEEmore » or PECO format. OH dynamic models and their input-data formats are described in detail. The user manual for the data base program, describes the format of the input data required to create a new data base or print data stored in an existing data base. 19 figs., 1 tab.« less
