3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

This code performs a fully automated translation  from KEDAK into ENDF-4 or -5 format.
Output is on tape in card image format.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Before translation the reactions are sorted in the ENDF format order. Linear-linear interpolation rule is preserved.
The resonance parameters for both resolved and unresolved, could also be translated and a background cross section is formed as the difference of the calculated contribution from the parameters and the point-wise data given in the original file.
Elastic angular distributions originally given in tabulated form are converted into Legendre polynomial coefficients.
Energy distributions are calculated using a simple evaporation model with the temperature expressed as a function of the incident mass.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The existing restrictions both on KEDAK and ENDF have been applied to the array sizes used in the code, except for the number of points in a section which in the  ENDF format are limited to 5000 points.
The code only translates one material at a time.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
NEA-0342/04
The two test cases needed 2 and 7 minutes of CPU time,  respectively, on a VAX-11/780.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM:  None.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The codes CHECKER and FIZCON should  be used to verify the correctness of the output ENDF/B file.
