Nucleonica Training course, 10-11 April 2014, FTU/KIT Karlsruhe

April 16th, 2014

Introduction to Nucleonica: Core Applications and Tools, 10-11 April, FTU-KIT, Karlsruhe, 2014.
This 2-day training course took place at the Center for Advanced Technological and Environmental Training FTU, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), during the 10-11 April, 2014. This was an introductory training course which focused mainly on the Nucleonica core applications and tools. A detailed description of nuclear data with particular reference to the various Nucleonica nuclear databases was given. Core applications were demonstrated through the use of Nucleonica tools such as the Decay Engine and Dosimetry & Shielding. A course highlight was the presentation by Yann Donjoux from CERN on an overview of the classification of radioactive packages for transport. Dr. Zsolt Soti presented the Karlsruhe Nuclide Chart and Dr. Jozsef Zsigrai gave presentations on the Gamma Spectrum Generator and Gamma Library applications. Of special interest were burnup and depletion calculations for the characterization of legacy waste through the use of the webKORIGEN fuel cycle analyses module.

There were participants from ITU (Germany), IRMM (Belgium), WAK/HDB (Germany), Interkantonales Labor (Switzerland), DG ENER (Luxembourg), Dutch Ministry of Defense (Netherlands), Helmholtz München (Germany). Guest speakers included Mr. Y. Donjoux (CERN), Drs. Z. Soti and J. Zsigrai from the JRC/ITU in addition to Dr. J. Magill and Mr. R. Dreher from the Nucleonica team.

Range & Stopping Power++ (R&SP++)

April 7th, 2014

The Range & Stopping Power application in Nucleonica has undergone a major revision. The new version of the application, the Range & Stopping Power++ (R&SP++) to denote the improved properties, has the following new features:
– in the main tab, the projectile and target materials can be selected. The projectile energies can be set in various units. The target material can be selected from elements, pre-defined and user defined compounds. The main results are shown in graphs for the Stopping Power, Range, and Bragg curve. The calculations have been optimised to considerably reduce the number of server calls.
– in the Table tab, the results summary is given in tabular form. This table can be downloaded for further processing.
– in the Compound Details tab, the user can easily edit and create existing and new compound mixtures.

We acknowledge the assistance of Prof. Helmut Paul from the Johannes Kepler Universität Linz, Austria with this new development.
