3. DESCRIPTION

ZZ-ADS-LIB/V1.0
---------------
This test library can be used for a number of code systems in the analysis of Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS).
    
The library is restricted to those materials needed for benchmarking efforts linked to short and mid-term ADS experimental results and design concepts. The  30 materials selected and the upper energy limit of the evaluation of each of them is given in parentheses.
