3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The code processes the WIMS-D/4 binary output files for producing two-group microscopic cross sections and macroscopic lattice cell constants (zone and cell macroscopic cross sections, D, M, and K-infinity) in a more flexible format needed for reactor burnup codes like CITATION, for reactor dynamics codes like NADYP-W and for other reactor codes. The purpose of the WIMSCORE-ENEA code is to facilitate the automation of data transfer between the cell calculation code WIMS and the diffusion-burnup codes.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The code spatially homogenizes and group collapses the various cross sections into two-group homogenized microscopic cross sections using the flux per mesh for each energy group for WIMS multigroup lattice calculations.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

For a typical run with 27 WIMS energy groups, 10 large burnup steps, 1 second is required on a IBM/3090 computer.
