Abstract : COHORT is a family of Monte Carlo codes written in FORTRAN-IV to solve a wide variety of radiation heating and transport problems. Modifications were made to SO1, the primary source generator code of the COHORT package, to make the code more versatile and to reduce the amount of external data handling required in applying COHORT to problems involving cylindrical volumes exposed to specified radiation environments. As a result of these modifications, the code accepts incident radiation energy and angle distributions as direct input and computes internally the probability distributions to be sampled in generating the strating parameters for individual radiation particles. This special version of SO1, designated RRA-62, relates to the remaining codes in the COHORT package in exactly the same manner as the original SO1. (Author)
