3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

XnWlup is a computer program with user-friendly graphical interface to help the users of WIMS-D library to enable quick visualisation of the plots of the energy dependence of the multigroup cross sections of any nuclide of interest. This software enables the user to generate and view the histogram of 69 multi-group cross sections as a function of neutron energy under Microsoft Windows environment. This software is designed using Microsoft Visual C++ and Microsoft Foundation Classes Library.
IAEA1395/05
New features of version 3.0:
- Plotting absorption and fission cross sections of resonant nuclide after applying the self-shielding cross section.
- Plotting the data of Resonant Integral table, as a function of dilution cross section for a selected temperature and for a given energy group.
- Plotting the data of Resonant Integral table, as a function of temperature for a selected background dilution cross section and for a given energy group.
- Clearing all the graphs except one graph from the display screen is easily done by using a tool bar button.
- Displaying the coordinate of the cursor point with appropriate units.

4. METHODS

XnWlup helps to obtain histogram plots of the values of cross section data of an element/isotope available as 69-group WIMS-D library as a function of energy bins.
  
The software XnWlup is developed with this graphical user interface in order to help those users who frequently refer to the WIMS-D library cross section data of neutron-nuclear reactions. The software also helps to produce handbook of WIMS-D cross sections.
