LA-CC 10-135 Cost Optimal Variance Reduction Technique 2D (COVRT2D) COVRT2D is a 1- and 2-D (and possibly, though untested 3-D) deterministic Sn code that optimizes weight-window lower bounds for subsequent use in MCNP. The code performs a deterministic adjoint calculation to obtain an initial estimate of the weight windows. Then, regions of the weight windows are optimized by a gradient-descent algorithm that minimizes the cost, defined as the variance times the computation time divided by the mean squared, of a single-tally MCNP calculation. The mean and variance are calculated by COVRT2D while the time for the computation is only estimated. This code was used to complete Clell Solomon's Ph.D. dissertation work LA-UR-10-0848.

LA-CC 10-125 BABBO, Version 1.0 BABBO is a mesh adaptation code that combines Adaptive Mesh Refinement with a mesh relaxer. Typically, mesh relaxation is used as a mesh optimization technique in Arbitrary Lagangian Eulerian hydro codes, while AMR is typically used in Eulerian hydro codes. The combination of these two techniques allows a computational mesh to mirror local and global spatial symmetries as well as spatially resolve modal structures inherent in the physics of the simulation. The BABBO code capability can be applied to any quadrilateral lagrangian hydro scheme that contains zone centered thermodynamic variables and vertex centered kinematic variables to create what would be AMR/ALE hydrodynamic capability. We plan to use BABBO as a research tool.

LA-CC 10-106 Photocathode Fabrication Hierarchical Programmed Control and Automation, Version 1.0 Repeatable fabrication of high efficiency photocathodes is achieved by introducing programmable control and automation to process variables. Optimization is then performed using separate techniques and a film growth process is identified which stipulates target values for each of the parameters. An optimized cathode chemistry then becomes highly repeatable because the automated control can exactly replicate the process steps. In practice, the target parameter variables (i.e., film thickness, temperature, etc.) that uniquely identify the film are loaded into the software as an input deck. The automated control is then initiated which executes the film growth and monitors, adjusts, and records each parameter status on user selectable time intervals (default is 0.5 seconds).

LA-CC 10-105 Algorithmic Approach to Optimization of Photocathode Stoichiometry, Version 1.0 Based on the automated programmable control of each process variable, achieved using an hierarchical program implemented in Labview, we have introduced an algorithmic approach to optimization. The key to this optimization is an ability to measure spectral response across a wide range of wavelengths (several hundred nanometers) after each key film growth process. Multiple samples are then grown using know variations in the target parameters. By observing the effect of each variation on spectral response, trends emerge which reveal how each growth step and/or parameter should be adjusted to optimize response at a specific wavelength.

Managing this grid for scientific users requires administration and techniques for packaging jobs and configuring servers. This set of tools automates many chores. While dramatically useful to my operations, in its raw form this is too site specific to have general value. 6/4/10

LA-CC 10-059 KIVA-3VRealGas KIVA-3VRealGas is a computer program for the numerical calculation of transient, two and three-dimensional, chemically reactive flows with sprays. It is an altered version of the earlier KIVA-3V code. KIVA-3VRealGas uses the Peng-Robinson equation of state (EOS) to better handle high-pressure conditions typical of diesel engine environments. The implementations modify pressure-volume-temperature relationships, specific heats, and departures in internal energy, among other thermodynamic partial derivatives. This implementation required significant changes throughout KIVA-3V to handle the new EOS and subsequent internal energy equation changes but all else is essentially left unchanged from KIVA-3V. 5/27/10

LA-CC 10-038 KIVA-4 KIVA-4 is the latest version of the series of KIVA codes. While KIVA-4 maintains the full generality of KIVA-3V, it adds the capability of computing with unstructured grids. Unstructured grids can be generated more easily than structured grids for complex geometries. The unstructured grids can be composed of a variety of elements including hexahedra, prisms, pyramids, and tetrahedra. However the numerical accuracy is less when the grid is not composed of hexahedra. KIVA-4 was developed to work with the many geometries accommodated with KIVA-3V which include 2D axisymmetric, 2D planar, 3D axisymmetric sector geometries, and full 3D geometries. KIVA-4 also features a multicomponent fuel evaporation algorithm. 3/19/10

LA-CC 10-035 KIVA-3V release 2 KIVA3VRELEASE2 is a computer program for the numerical calculation of transient, two and three-dimensional, chemically reactive flows with sprays. It is a newer version of the earlier KIVA3 (1993) that has now been extended to model vertical of canted valves in the cylinder head of a gasoline or diesel engine. KIVA3, in turn, was based on the earlier KIVA2 (1989) and uses the same numerical solution procedure and solves the same sort of equations. KIVA3VRELEASE2 uses a block-structured mesh with connectivity defined through indirect addressing. The departure from a single rectangular structure in logical space allows complex geometries to be modeled with significantly greater efficiency because large regions of deactivated cells are no longer necessary. 3/11/10

LA-CC 10-024 Visual Crosswalk Analysis Tool (VCAT) version beta 2.0 VCAT is a knowledge modeling and analysis tool. It was synthesized from functional analysis, business process modeling, and complex network science. VCAT discovers synergies by analyzing natural language descriptions. Specifically, it creates visual analytic perspectives that capture intended organizational structures then overlays the serendipitous relationships that point to potential synergies within an organization or across multiple organizations.
All organizations struggle to understand the relationships among projects in their portfolios and synergies that may link their interests with those of customers or other organizations. Org charts, enterprise workflows and other standard business representations show only the intended relationships and miss the rest. Social networking and data mining tools only show ad hoc relationships and ignore the business plan.
VCAT was developed by LANL as a broad innovation capability for all large organizations that endeavor to understand their own resource utilization and potential for collaboration. The VCAT activity-centric data model is flexible enough to encompass ent3erprise relationships across any set of organizational units. Linkage analysis can reveal quantitative interdependencies relating resources, products, people, controls and outcomes.

Only neutron and gamma-ray emissions are allowed. A wealth of prompt fission neutron and gamma-ray data can be calculated. In the current Version 1.0, a simplified approach is used to treat the competition between the emissions of neutrons and gamma rays. 1/7/10
LA-CC 10-002 Master_LAMBS Version 1.0 beta This software implments the MIMBS method for isotope identification and simulation of gamma ray spectra. It implements the MIMBS equation (equation 4) from the publication R. J. Estep, C. W. McSluskey, B. A. Sap, "The Multiple Isotope Material Basis Set (MIMBS) Method for Isotope Identification With Low and Medium Resolution Gamma Ray Detectors," Journal of Radioanayltical and uclear Chemistry, Vol 276, No. 3 (2008) 737-741, and other methods cited therein. Master_LAMBS has three main functions: (1) Isotope identification from gamma spectrum files: (2) Simulation of attenuated gamma spectra: and (3) creation and editing of "library files" used by Master_LAMBS 1/5/10
LA-CC 10-001 HyTEST (HyperTemporal ENVI Software Tools), Version 1.0 The code enables the loading of the NCam sensor's raw "photon list" data into the ENVI (ITT Visual Information Solutions) imagery analysis environment. The code also allows users to perform various custom analyses that are unique to this class of sensor, and are not part ofthe standard suite of analyses that are provided with ENVI. 1/5/10
