3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION


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

  FORMAT: ANISN, MORSE

NUMBER OF GROUPS: 38-group library of photon interaction cross sections.

  NUCLIDES: Z = 1 to 100

  ORIGIN: VITAMIN-E

  WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: --

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

The data can be used in most discrete ordinates codes and in the CCC-203/MORSE-CG multigroup Monte Carlo code for photon radiation transport calculations.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

This 38-group, P8, library of photon interaction cross sections was derived from the photon interaction data in DLC-113/VITAMIN-E using the NITAWL and ALPO modules of the PSR-63/AMPX-II system. The original VITAMIN-E data were generated from DLC-99/HUGO using the SMUG module of AMPX-II. Data are provided for elements with atomic number in the range Z=1 to 100.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Conversion of the entire library took 1.1 minutes on an IBM-3033.
DLC-0126/01
NEA-DB ran the retrieval program on a VAX-11/780 in 14 minutes of CPU time.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

A program called BCBN is provided in the package to convert the PVE data from ANISN card image to binary form which can then be used directly in most multigroup discrete ordinates codes.
PVE is based on the photon interaction data available in the DLC-113/VITAMIN-E package.
