4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

ZZ-BP-3 neutron cross sections from the CCC-17/05R library were processed into 104 neutron groups using the  PSR-9/CSP code. The fine-group neutron cross sections were collapsed to 22 broad groups using CCC-254/ANISN with an equilibrium fission spectrum source. The resulting multigroup cross sections are P5 coefficients punched on cards in format suitable for input to ANISN, DOT, and MORSE.
ZZ-BP-6 neutron and gamma-ray cross sections for 12C, H, and 10B were from ENDF/B-II data. The neutron multigroup cross sections were generated into 104 neutron groups using the PSR-13/SUPERTOG code. The fine-group neutron cross sections were collapsed to 22 broad groups using CCC-254/ANISN with an equilibrium fission spectrum source. The gamma-ray multigroup cross sections were generated using PSR-7/MUG. The neutron-gamma-ray coupling utilized yield data from the DLC-12/POPOP4 library (data sets 010101, 060101, 060301, and 05100201). The neutron-gamma-ray coupled multigroup cross-section set was generated using the SAMPLE COUPLING CODE (ASCC). The multigroup cross sections are in a 22-18 group structure with P3 coefficients punched on cards in format suitable for input to ANISN, DOT, and MORSE.
