%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
FSXSEC is a collection of cross section libraries to be used for nuclear fuel cycle shielding calculations, generated from the pseudo-composition-independent VITAMIN-C cross section library:

  1. A composition-dependent self-shielded fine-group library with 171 neutron groups and 36 gamma groups, and a broad-group library with 22 neutron and 21 gamma groups for AMPX.

  1. A broad-group microscopic and a broad-group macroscopic library in ANISN format.

4. METHODS

To generate library (a), AMPX modules BONAMI, CHOX, and MALOCS were used. To generate library (b), AMPX modules NITAWL and AXMIX were used.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
DLC-0085/01
NEA-DB executed the library conversion program on VAX-11/780. The following CPU times were found:
   1 minute  21 seconds to convert the macroscopic FCXSEC library;
   6 minutes 39 seconds to convert the microscopic FCXSEC library.
