    These libraries contain neutron and gamma ray KERMA factors.

KENDL, the neutron KERMA factors have been calculated from the LLNL Evaluated Nuclear Data Library (ENDL) data file. The results are for the 175 neutron energy groups used by the TART Monte Carlo neutron transport code for isotopes and elemental mixtures. They are tabulated for 15 composite materials and for the isotopes or elements in the ENDL file from Z=1 to Z=29. The incident neutron energies range from 1.882 x 1.0E-5 to 20 MeV for the composite materials and from 1.307 x 1.0E-9 to 20 MeV for the isotopes and elements.

KEGDL, the gamma-ray KERMA factors calculated from the LLNL Evaluated Gamma-Ray Data Library (EGDL) file, are tabulated for the  elements from Z=1 to Z=30 and for 15 composite materials. The KERMA  factors are presented for 191 energy groups over the incident photon energy range from 100 eV to 100 MeV.

The following composite materials are tabulated: tissue, bone, muscle, standard man, plastic, nylon-6.6/6, Lucite, liquid muscle equivalent, water, acetylene, dry air, water-saturated air, carbon dioxide, gas Te with methane.
