3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION


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

  FORMAT: FIDO

  NUMBER OF GROUPS: 174 neutron groups

NUCLIDES: H, He, Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zr, Nb, Mo, Hf, Ta, W, Pb, Bi, Th, Pa, U, Np, Pu, Am.

  ORIGIN: ENDF/B-V, JENDL-2

  WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: VITAMIN-E weighting function

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

The library includes neutron kerma factors, gas production, tritium breeding cross sections, and all important reaction cross sections for a large number of materials of interest in fission and fusion systems. The library was generated with the KAOS-V code (PSR-306) employing basic nuclear data from ENDF/B-V. Auxiliary nuclear data bases, such as the Japanese library JENDL-2, were used as a source of isotopic cross sections when these data are not provided in ENDF/B-V files for a natural element. KAOS/LIB-V employs the VITAMIN-E weighting function and energy group structure of 174 neutron groups.
     The library is designed for fusion and fission applications.
