%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

The VITAMIN-J structure coupled 175/42 neutron/photon-group MATXS library contains neutron and photon data for 92 isotopes of 44 chemical elements. Designed for shielding and fusion blanket analysis, this library includes photon-production, material damage and heating data for several temperatures, background cross sections and P6 scattering anisotropy. The data can be used by most transport and diffusion codes after preprocessing with  the MATXS interface codes TRAMIX or TRANSX-CTR.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:
NEA-1205/02
The library was converted at the NEA-DB to binary form  using the program BBC. On a VAX 8810 this conversion required 18 minutes of CPU time.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

Program BBC converts the mode, lists or provides an index of the MATXS-file. The library interface  codes TRAMIX or TRANSX-CTR read MATXS files and produce transport tables compatible with many Sn and diffusion codes.
