3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

  FORMAT: ANISN, DOT, or MORSE.

  NUMBER OF GROUPS: 52 neutron groups plus 21 gamma-ray groups.

NUCLIDES: materials typically considered for use in some conceptual fusion reactor neutronics studies.These materials include Li-6, Li-7, Nb, C, Fe, Cu, Li, Al-203, Mg, H, O, Pb, Ta, V, and B.

ORIGIN: ENDF/B or DNA data sets; for lead and boron, the GAM-2 library at ORNL.

WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: The data were collapsed from a fine-group structure using a weighting function typical of the average spectrum in a fusion reactor blanket.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
The DLC-28 library can be used for neutron and secondary gamma-ray transport or for primary gamma-ray transport in fusion reactor neutronics studies.
DLC-28/CTR is a coupled set of cross sections for materials typically considered for use in some conceptual fusion reactor neutronics studies. These materials include 6-Li, 7-Li, Nb, C, Fe, Cu, Li, Al-203, Mg, H, O, Pb, Ta, V, and B.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The data were collapsed from a fine-group structure using a weighting function typical of the average spectrum in a fusion reactor blanket.
With the exception of lead and boron, 100 energy-group neutron cross sections were obtained from ENDF/B or DNA data sets using SUPERTOG. A flux weighting function of 1/E was used in SUPERTOG and  all resonance nuclides were treated as infinitely dilute. The energy group structure coincided with the GAM-2 group structure for  the top 99 groups, and the 100th group was a thermal group (Maxwellian distribution was assumed).
For lead and boron, the GAM-2 library at ORNL was employed to obtain the 100-group neutron cross sections.
SMUG, an updated version of MUG, was used to calculate 21 energy-group gamma-ray transport cross sections for all nuclides except lead and boron. The gamma-ray transport cross sections for lead and boron are from MUG.
Secondary gamma-ray production cross sections for 100 neutron groups and 21 gamma-ray groups were obtained from several data bases.
A coupled 100 neutron energy-group and 21 gamma-ray energy- group cross section set was formed and then collapsed to 52 neutron  groups plus 21 gamma-ray groups using the group collapsing feature of the ANISN code. The spectrum used for the collapsing was, therefore, a spatial average of the energy distribution in a fusion  reactor blanket.
The energy-group structures used are given in ref. 1. a P3 Legendre expansion was used to represent neutron elastic scattering  and photon Compton scattering.
