Dear all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is my first post in this forum.

I would like to know how to obtain the result data of an MCNPX or MCNP6 tally for each simulated history, before the data of different histories is averaged and normalized by the total number of simulated source particles (nps).

I'm calculating the *F8 tally (energy deposition) in a sphere which contains an electron point source with a spectrum of energies. The spectrum of the source corresponds, in fact, to the electron emissions of Iodine-125. One decay of I-125 is equivalent to about 26 electrons (electron yield per decay).

In the end I would like to calculate the energy deposition due to each simulated decay (assumed to be a group of 26 consecutive source particles) in order to obtain a frequency spectrum of the possible energies deposited by one single decay. If I can get the values of the energy deposited by each source particle before all the results of all the simulated particles are pooled in an average value, then I could do the sum of the energies deposited by every consequtive 26 electrons by myself and from this calculate the frequency spectrum.

Does anyone know or has an idea on how to implement this in MCNPX or MCNP6?

Kind regards,

Clarita
