About KENO3D


The KENO3D Visualization Tool for KENO Geometry Models is a powerful state-of-the-art visualization tool that enables KENO V.a and KENO-VI users to interactively display their three-dimensional geometry models. The interactive options include:

  • Shaded or wireframe images
  • Standard views, such as, top view, side view, front view, and isometric (3-D) view
  • Rotating the model
  • Zooming in on selected locations
  • Selecting parts of the model to display
  • Editing colors and displaying legends
  • Displaying properties of any unit in the model
  • Creating cut-away views
  • Removing units from the model
  • Printing image or saving image to common graphics formats
KENO3D reads CSAS, KENO V.a, or KENO-VI input files. It attempts to verify that the KENO geometry input is "legal," i.e., it conforms to the code input guidelines. KENO3D prints a warning message for illegal geometry input, and if possible, it displays the illegal KENO geometry to facilitate debugging of the input. Problems with more than 300,000 KENO V.a bodies have been successfully tested and displayed. KENO3D has the look and feel of a typical PC Windows application. Toolbar buttons are included for all major menu options. There is a setup dialog that allows the user to specify toolbars that should be displayed.

KENO3D was developed for use by criticality safety specialists that use the KENO three-dimensional Monte Carlo criticality computer code. KENO V.a and KENO-VI are part of the SCALE (Standardized Computer Analyses for Licensing Evaluations) computer software system developed at Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) that is widely used and accepted around the world for criticality safety analyses.
