Manuscript Title: MORANG: a computer program designed to aid in the determinations of crystal morphology.
Authors: R. Docherty, K.J. Roberts, E. Dowty
Program title: MORANG
Catalogue identifier: ABFA_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 51(1988)423
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: VAX 11/782, IBM-AT.
Operating system: VAX/VMS, MS-DOS.
Keywords: Crystallography, Morphology, Interplanar spacing, Interplanar angles, Interfacial angles, Morphological importance.
Classification: 8.

Nature of problem:
It is often necessary to compare measured interfacial angles with calculated interplanar angles in order to determine the morphology of a crystal.

Solution method:
MORANG consists of three main routines; MAID, MORPH2 and ANGLE. ANGLE calculates the angles between crystal planes and directions, MORPH2 identifies the planes likely to dominate the crystal habit and M AID is the interactive interface between the two routines. The program allows ANGLE and MORPH2 to be run individually.
