DOE-2 Post-processing

When the DOE-2.1E simulation program executes, it produces a large text output file containing a series of user-specified output reports. We then post-process the raw DOE-2 output file to extract only those results that will be presented to the HES user. These results are drawn from the BEPS, SV-A, SS-A, and PV-A standard reports offered by DOE-2 (Winkelmann, et. al. 1993). Table 10 shows which values are drawn from these reports.
