Paper Abstract

Monte Carlo methods for analyzing radiation transport are well established, although the ease of use can vary markedly between different software packages. This paper briefly reviews the present status of the MCBEND Monte Carlo code and how it has been developed to satisfy the requirements of the non-specialist user. It then discusses some of the ways in which MCBEND can be used to increase understanding of the performance of radiation systems by conducting virtual experiments.
