%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
SNLRML is a reactor dosimetry library that draws upon all available evaluated cross section libraries and selects the best evaluation for application to research reactor spectrum determinations. Many of the components of the SNLRML come from the ENDF/B-VI and IRDF-90 (DLC-0161) libraries. The library format was selected for easy interface with spectrum determination codes such as SAND-II (CCC-0112 and LSL-M2 (PSR-233) and the new PSR-0345/SNL/SAND-II  has  been  enhanced to interface with SNLRML.
The data is recommended for spectrum determination applications and  for the prediction of neutron activation of typical radiation sensor materials. The library has been tested for consistency of the cross  section in wide variety of neutron environments. The results and cautions from this testing have been documented. The data has been interfaced with radiation transport codes, such as TWODANT-SYS (CCC-0547) and MCNP (CCC-0200), in order to compare calculated and measured activities for benchmark reactor experiments.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:
DLC-0178/01
The library SNLRML was tested at the NEA-DB on a Sun Solaris platform under SunOS 5.3, as input to the program SNL-SAND-II. A few seconds of elapsed time are required to run the SAND-II test case.
