Title: MCNP/X Transport in the Tabular Regime

Abstract

We review the transport capabilities of the MCNP and MCNPX Monte Carlo codes in the energy regimes in which tabular transport data are available. Giving special attention to neutron tables, we emphasize the measures taken to improve the treatment of a variety of difficult aspects of the transport problem, including unresolved resonances, thermal issues, and the availability of suitable cross sections sets. We also briefly touch on the current situation in regard to photon, electron, and proton transport tables.
