Introduction to RSim User Guide

Welcome to RSim: an application for running Radiation Transport simulations. RSim currently uses a built in computational engine, however some additional engines may be added in future releases.

  • GORAD: an application based on Geant4 toolkit, facilitating simulations common for space physics is available for all RSim Simulations.

RSim has a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for performing common radiation transport simulations. Without the need to write code in C++ or Fortran and inputs for models, users of RSim can set up the radiation environment, geometry and materials of the analyzed system, choose the analysis type (tallies), run simulations and perform visualization of the simulation results.

RSim is integrated with the Computer Aided Design (CAD) by supporting STEP and STL data import and translating it into the format understood by the underlying codes.

RSim can also be used as data translation tool: it translates STEP/STL into GDML, VSH5, H5M, TET and STL formats.

This manual, RSim User Guide, demonstrates how to set up a RSim simulation. It then shows how to run the selected computational engine on the resulting input files.

RSim installation instructions are given in the document
RSim Installation and Release Notes.
