Abstract

MCNP is a general-purpose Monte Carlo N-Particle code that can be used for neutron, photon, electron, or coupled neutron/photon/electron transport. MCNP input file (INP file) has the characteristics of complicated form and is error-prone in describing geometry model. This paper proposes a method combined both geometric modeling and converting the models to INP file, the method realized a system to integrate three-dimensional modeling and converting. The three-dimensional modeling part developed based on open geometry engine OpenCASCADE, and it can export STEP(Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data) file directly. The converting part accomplished the converting from STEP file to INP file.
