If MCNP is still available at a reasonable cost it's a good alternative for
some geometries.  We found out that you could use QAD input files with a
little modification to the input stream, which is why MCNP might be useful.
However, deep penetration problems are still best calculated with point
kernel codes.
hope this helps  - - jmr

Does anyone know of a good alternative to MicroShield?   Nothing against
uShield, just looking for options for calculating shielded  dose rates from
rays.  Anyone know of a non-point/kernel code  that's affordable?
