A new modeling system for high-intensity neutral particle radiation fields is presented. The code PANDEMONIUM calculates external effective dose rates from neutrons and photons produced at specific locations within an industrial-size plutonium processing facility. The new version of PANDEMONIUM introduces time-dependent neutronics for source multiplication coupled with transient source and detector positions. The code is designed to provide quick and acceptably accurate total effective dose estimates for scenarios and facilities for which conventional methods prove to be too impractical or costly to model. The energy range of the code has also been extended to include the effects of prompt-fission photons.
