MAVRIC Appendix B: MAVRIC Utilities

Introduction

Several utilities are provided to aid users in dealing with some of the output files produced by Monaco and MAVRIC. These utilities were developed at ORNL for specific projects and have been added to SCALE so that all users can benefit. More utilities have been added that deal with Denovo, including the older *.varscl files for flux output used in SCALE 6.1 and the current binary *.dff file for flux output used in SCALE 6.2. These tools do not have the modern block/keyword input structure but instead have a fixed format, which is fairly simple since each utility is made for a very specific function.

Each is described in the following sections. Five sample problems, mavricUtilities1.inp, mavricUtilities2.inp, mavricUtilities3.inp, mavricUtilities4.inp and mavricUtilities5.inp demonstrate the use of some of these. For all of these utilities, filenames should be enclosed in quotes.
