3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION


%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

  FORMAT: BIGAMON

  NUMBER OF GROUPS: 100 neutron, 25 gamma-ray energy groups

NUCLIDES: H, He, Li, Be, B, N, O, F, Na, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Y, Zr, Nb, Mo, Tc, Ru, Ag, Sn, Cs, Hf, Ta, W, Re, Au, Pb.

  ORIGIN: DLC-0033/MONTAGE (ENDF/B-IV)

WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: 1/E except near 14 MeV where a thermally broadned (T=20 MeV) fusion peak is employed.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Activation data library for fusion reaction applications. It contains:
- multigroup cross sections in 100 energy groups for 420 neutron-   induced reactions
- multigroup gamma-ray spectra in 25 energy groups for 107 unique   daughter products
- maximum permissible concentration for 200 reaction products
- absorbable decay energy ("sensible heat") for 85 products.
