SIGACE provides a method for generating high temperature ACE files for use with the MCNP code starting with a lower temperature file.
The low temperature ACE file is first converted to ENDF formatted file using the ACELST code and then Doppler broadened, essentially limited to the data in the resolved resonance region, to any desired higher temperature using SIGMA1. The SIGACE code then generates a high temperature ACE file for use with the MCNP code. A thinning routine has also been introduced in the SIGACE code for reducing the size of the ACE files. The Doppler Broadened ACE file can then again be converted to ENDF file and graphically plotted using EVALPLOT and compared with other ENDF file using COMPLOT routines of the PREPRO code system for validation purposes.
EVALPLOT and COMPLOT. The original DOS/WINDOWS version of the code system allows to plot for comparison the source ACE file with the output Doppler broadened file by means of the COMPLOT code, whose DOS executable is included in the package; in the current version this feature has been maintained for DOS/WINDOWS, but COMPLOT is not available for linux.
