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

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 pre-processing 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 OR 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.
