3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

NITRAN is a neutron transport code system based on a rigorous treatment of anisotropic scattering. Double differential cross sections are used (see DLC-123/DDXLIB).

4. METHODS

NITRAN includes DDXS, a nuclear data processing code used to generate group constants of the double differential type. The input to DDXS can be ENDF/B-IV, ENDF/B-VI or JENDL-3 cross sections.
In the NITRAN calculation, angular dependent transfer cross sections (kernels) are used as scattering cross sections. They are obtained from integrating the product of the double differential neutron emission cross sections and the angular transfer probabilities. The transport codes are based on discrete ordinates. To solve the one-dimensional (slab and sphere) transport, NITRAN-1 is used. For two dimensions, NITRAN-2 is used. For time- dependent problems NITRAN-2D is included.
