Morang — A computer program designed to aid in the determinations of crystal morphology

A simple Fortran program (MORANG) designed to help in determinations of crystal morphology is described. The program allows not only the calculation of the angles between crystal planes and directions but also the identification of the morphologically important forms according to interplanar spacing. A brief outline of the principles behind the calculations is given along with a description of the program and its operation.

Title of program: MORANG
Catalogue Id: ABFA_v1_0

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.
