3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION


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

  FORMAT: ANISN

  NUMBER OF GROUPS: 34  neutron  groups - 14 gamma groups

NUCLIDES: (2)H, D, (3)O, Li-6, Li-7, B-10, B-11, C, Al, Si, Ti, V,  Cr, Mn-55, Fe, Ni, Cu, Nb, Mo, W, Pb, (4)SS.

  ORIGIN: ENDF/B (DLC-0037)

WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: 1/E weighted for neutron energies exceeding 0.345 eV, below this energy a Maxwellian distribution peaked at 800K is used. The photon interaction cross sections are flat weighted.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
A P3 48-group coupled neutron and gamma-ray (34 neutron groups - 14 gamma groups) cross section library for neutronic studies in fusion reactor blankets or shield for the following 28 elements:  (2)H, D, (3)O, Li-6, Li-7, B-10, B-11, C, Al, Si, Ti, V, Cr, Mn-55, Fe, Ni, Cu, Nb, Mo, W, Pb, (4)SS. The cross section data are  given in ANISN card image format.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The library has been produced by collapsing DLC-37, 100 neutron and 21 gamma groups to 34 neutron and 14 gamma groups. A rather fine mesh is maintained in the higher energy range  where gamma production, activation and heat deposition are relative- ly more important. One of the files contains in the first position of the Po the kerma factor instead of absorption. Kerma factors were obtained from MACKLIB-IV.
