3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED:  Converts nuclear data from US ENDF/B to UK NDL format.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Generates tabulations from parametric forms. Deletes surplus points from tabulations.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Reich-Moore and Adler-Adler resonance formulae are not processed. Temperature dependence is ignored. Inelastic scattering is allowed to only 30 discrete levels. There are various storage restrictions which would  require recompilation to overcome. The most stringent of these is that a cross section is limited to 5000 data points including those  interpolated by the program.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

On an IBM 360/75, using CPU time as a measure, a file without resonances is converted in a few minutes. A material  with many resonances is converted in a few tens of minutes. Doppler  broadening of the data increases the running time a great deal.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Having generated a copy of the ENDF/B data in a form suitable for the NDL, the program allows great flexibility in specifying the accuracy of the final file.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

At least 200k of IBM/360 storage. Input and output streams. Normally tape units for the ENDF/B tape input and NDL tape output although these could be discs. Uses very many input/output streams for temporary storage. These could be tapes but so many are required that disks would normally be used. A clock routine is used simply for labelling the output.
