WANL-MSFC Nuclear Rocket Shielding Data Generators GAMLEG-W, APPROPOS, NAGS, SATURN and Neutron and photon Cross Section Libraries 1-6.

Applications of the Data: Transport codes which use the data are ANISN-W, KAP-VI, DOT-IIW, MAC and SCAP. The transport codes, also available from RSIC, the cross section processing codes, and the data libraries (both available in DLC-26) altogether comprise a com- prehensive radiation analysis system for both preliminary parameter  analysis and detailed design analysis.

Scope of the Data: The compilation of neutron and photon cross sec-  tion data for MSFC is in the form of five Master Library Data Sets and a set of basic nuclear data.

Master Library No.1 contains 135 microscopic, transport corrected, neutron cross sections sets for 36 elements for use in the codes ANISN-W, DOT-IIW, and APPROPOS. These data are in a 52-group structure.

Master Library No.2 contains 413 microscopic, PL (1 to 3) neutron cross section sets for 36 elements for use in the ANISN-W, DOT IIW, and APPROPOS codes. These data are also in a 52 energy group structure.

Master Library No.3 contains 134 sets of reaction rate cross section data for use in the  code APPROPOS.

The data on Master Libraries Nos 1, 2, and 3 are averaged over four  representative, spatially dependent, neutron spectra obtained from WANL R-1 nuclear sub-system design work. These first three sets are obtained in a manner consistent with each other and with the nuclear and radiation analysis procedures used in the radiation analysis of reactors at the Westinghouse Astronuclear Laboratory (WANL).

Master Library No.4 contains 510 microscopic, P1, gamma-ray cross section sets for 51 elements for use in the ANISN-W, DOT-IIW, and APPROPOS codes. These data which are in a 13 energy group structure, are averaged over a source spectra of prompt gamma ray energy emit-  ted from the fission of 235-Uranium. This library is not distributed. It can be generated from Master Library No.5 (see below) using the code GAMLEG-W which is included in the distributed  package.

Master Library No.5 contains the pair-production and photo-electric  gamma ray cross section data used in the KAP-VI, SCAP, MAP, and GAMLEG-W codes. Again, the data in sets 4 and 5 were obtained in a manner consistent with each other and with the radiation analysis procedures used in the radiation analysis of reactors at WANL. Finally, a basic set of nuclear data was generated for use in the complete package of codes.
