Description

MCNPX website  

MCNPX , Monte Carlo N-Particle eXtended, is a general-purpose Monte Carlo radiation transport code for modeling the interaction of radiation with everything. It extends the capabilities of MCNP4C3 to nearly all particles, nearly all energies, and to nearly all applications without an additional computational time penalty.

Environment Modules

Run module spider MCNPX to find out what environment modules are available for this application.


Additional Information

MCNPX is a restricted application. Only authorized users who have completed required training and certification can access it.
