%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
GAMLIB is intended to be a source of neutron multigroup data for the fast (GAM) portion of the GGC multigroup cross section codes. It supplements the library available in the GGC-4 code package. The  library contains data for 2-H, He, 6-Li, 7-Li, 9-Be, 10-B, 12-C, 14-N, 16-O, 23-Na, Mg, 27-Al, Ti, V, Cr, 55-Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, 63-Cu, 65-Cu, 81-Br, 82-Kr, 83-Kr, 84-Kr, 85-Kr, 86-Kr, Rb, 88-Sr, 90-Sr, 93-Nb, Mo, 100-Ru, 105-Rh, 104-Pd, 126-Te, 132-Xe, 133-Xe, 134-Xe, 135-Xe, 134-Cs, 134-Ba, 139-La, 140-Ce, 142-Ce, 144-Nd, 148-Sm, 149-Sm, 151-Eu, 153-Eu, Gd, 164-Dy, 175-Lu, 176-Lu,  181-Ta, 182-W, 183-W, 184-W, 186-W, 185-Re, 187-Re, 197-Au, 207-Pb,  232-Th, 233-U, 234-U, 235-U, 236-U, 238-U, 237-Np, 238-Pu, 239-Pu, 240-Pu, 241-Pu, 242-Pu, 241-Am, 243-Am, 244-Cm, and for non saturating and slowly saturating fission product pseudo elements.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

GAMLIB is a multigroup library, meaning, in this case, that detailed cross section data has been averaged with 1/e weighting to yield average cross sections over 99 energy bands covering the energy range from 14.92 MeV to 0.414 eV. In addition, the GAM program accepts resonance cross section data in the form of single level Breit-Wigner parameters to perform resonance self-shielding calculations. Some of the data is presented in this form. In general, where resonance data is available, two data sets will be present, one containing the resonance parameters and the other, the  group averaged values of the unshielded resonance cross sections. Elastic and inelastic scattering are represented by group to group transfer matrices, the elastic data having P3 scattering arrays.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

CONVERSION - to convert GAMLIB from a single unformated tape to 9 formatted tapes required 10 minutes on the IBM 360/91.
MERGE - no running time estimate available.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

CONVERSION - has two functions: It was used to copy the master tape (unformatted) onto several tapes (formatted). The program can also be used to recreate a single master tape (unformated). The resulting tape can then be used with the GGC code. MERGE - merges selected nuclides from two existing library tapes onto a new library tape which can be used with GGC.
