Title: FLEXIBLE MONTE CARLO PROGRAMS FMC-N AND FMC-G

Abstract

Flexible Monte Carlo programs FMC-N and FMC-G (GE-ANPD Programs 516 and 515) are digital computer programs which apply Monte Carlo methods to simulate neutron and gamma ray life histories, respectively, in a source-shield configuration. The programs were designed for flexlbility in the geometrical, material, nuclear, and source descriptions of source-shield configurations and variance reduction techniques. The programs were also designed to optimize the use of fast memory and to provide complete freedom in the dimensions of the various input quantities. The programs are coded for an IBM-704 computer with a fast memory capacity of 32,768 storage locations and eight magnetic tape units, and for an IBM7090 computer wlth a fast memory capacity of 32,768 storage locations and ten magnetic tape unlts on two date channels. No magnetic drum storage is necessary for either computer. (auth)
