Abstract: The Monte Carlo Neutron Photon (MCNP) computer program ('MNCP - A General Monte Carlo Code for Neutron and Photon Transport, Version 3A') (in PC and mainframe versions) has been used for the Hanford Waste Vitrification Plant (HWVP) design and operational exposure assessments, including the glass melter cell, the canister storage pit, the shielded canister transporter, and other facilities.
