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

AMZ is a 70-group library of multigroup constants for the fast reactor nuclear design code EXPANDA. Data is stored for three temperatures (300K, 900K, 2100K) and for seven background cross sections. The following isotopes are available: H-1, Be-9, B-10, B-11, C-12, O-16, N-23, Mg, Al-27, Si, Ti, V, Cr, Mn-55, Fe, Ni, Cu, Ga, Zr, Nb-93, Mo, In-115, Sn, Pb, Th-232, Pa-233, U-233, U-234, U-235, U-236, U-238, Pu-238, Pu-239, Pu-240, Pu-241, Pu-242, Am-241, and lumped fission products of U-233, U-235, Pu-239.

4. METHODS

Nuclear cross sections, transfer matrices, and self-shielding factors were generated from ENDF/B-IV data using the codes NJOY (PSR-0171) and RGENDF.
