3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

  FORMAT: --

NUMBER OF GROUPS: Kerma factors at 816 energy points within the energy range 0.023 eV to 19.2 MeV or as kerma factors for a specified group structure.

NUCLIDES: H, Li-6, Li-7, Be, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl,  K, Ca, Fe, and Nb.

  ORIGIN: O5R and ENDF/B libraries except for P and F.

  WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: Flat or 1/E.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
The original library was compiled for use in computing energy release in tissue and heating in various materials. The elements compiled for the first library are H, 6-Li, 7-Li, Be, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Fe, and Nb.
The cross sections used were based on the O5R and ENDF/B libraries except for P, which the authors of ref. 1 compiled, and F  which came from GAM-2.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The quantity kerma (kinetic energy release in material) is evaluated by an integration over energy of the product  of the kerma factor and flux density at any spatial position.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The retrieval program AVKER will evaluate fluence-to-kerma factors for any desired composition that can be made from elements in the library. These data can be obtained either as kerma factors at 816 energy points within the energy range 0.023 eV to 19.2 MeV or as kerma factors for a specified group structure averaged with flat or 1/E weighting.
