MATXS10 is useful for many high-energy calculations, including coupled neutron-photon-heating calculations in fusion systems, the analysis of fast critical assemblies like GODIVA, and some shielding calculations for which resonance self shielding effects are not too  important. It has theadvantage of being compact, and TRANSX2 and particle transport calculations run very fast with this library.
The MATXS10 library uses 30 neutron groups and 12 photon groups and includes 121 materials from ENDF/B-VI (including changes through Release 2). The materials are given at 300K without self shielding.  The weight function had a fusion + fission + 1/E + thermal Maxwellian shape. The Legendre order for the scattering matrices is  P4. Photon production, photon interaction, KERMA, damage, and all ENDF partial cross sections are included. Thermal upscatter is not included.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

NJOY91.91 was used to process this library derived from ENDF/B-VI. MATXS10 is an update of the ENDF/B-V derived DLC-115/MATXS5A library, which was added to the RSIC collection in December 1985.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

BBC converted MATXS10 to binary in about 1
minute on a SunSparcstation 2.
DLC-0176/01
Two versions of the program BBC, respectively BBC V2.0  and BBC V2.5, were created and executed on two different UNIX systems: 1) SUN Solaris platform: 2) DEC 3000 Model 300X (Alpha/AXP  Architecture Workstation). The CPU times required to run the executable BBC and perform the ASCII to binary conversion of the library TEXT10 (with the creation of the binary file MATXS) in the Sun Solaris platform and on the DEC-3000 Model 300 X (ALPHA-AXP Workstation) are 23.5 and 18.4 seconds respectively.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The Fortran 77 program BBC is included in this package to convert the library to binary format for subsequent processing with the PSR-317/TRANSX2 code system to interface the MATXS cross-section libraries with nuclear transport codes for radiation transport calculations. Other functions of BBC include indexing MATXS libraries, and maintaining them by inserting, deleting, and extracting individual materials. Information on BBC, which extracted from the TRANSX2 document, is given in APPENDIX A. This version of BBC is configured to run on Sun workstations.
