A computational model of the Americium-Beryllium neutron source facility at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology was developed using the neutron transport code Monte Carlo Neutron Particle from Los Alamos National Labs. This model was built using publically available reference data, and measurements of the facility. The results from this model were validated against Nested Neutron Spectrometer readings.
