3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The Petten AMPX-II/SCALE-3 Code System PASC-1 is a reactor neutronics calculation programme system consisting of well known IBM-oriented codes, that have been translated into FORTRAN-77, for calculations on a CDC-CYBER computer. Thus, the portability of these codes has been increased. In this system, some AMPX-II and SCALE-3 modules, the one-dimensional transport code ANISN and the 1 to 3-dimensional diffusion code CITATION are linked together on the CDC-CYBER/855 computer. The new cell code XSDRNPM-S and the old XSDRN code are included in the system. Starting from an AMPX fine group library up to CITATION, calculations can be performed for each individual module. Existing AMPX master interface format libraries, such as CSRL-IV, JEF-1, IRI and SCALE-45, and the old XSDRN-formatted libraries such as the COBB library can be used for the calculations. The code system contains the following modules and codes at present: AIM, AJAX, MALOCS, NITAWL-S, REVERT-I, ICE-2, CONVERT, JUAN, OCTAGN, XSDRNPM-S, XSDRN, ANISN and CITATION. The system will be extended with other SCALE modules and transport codes.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The PASC-1 system is based on AMPX-II/SCALE-3 modules. Except for some SCALE-3 modules taken from the SCALIAS package, the original AMPX-II modules were IBM versions written in FORTRAN IV. These modules have been translated into CDC FORTRAN V. In order to test these modules and link them with some codes, some of the sample problem calculations have been performed for the whole PASC-1 system. During these calculations, some FORTRAN-77 errors were found in MALOCS, REVERT, CONVERT and some subroutines of SUBLIB (FORTRAN-77 subroutine library). These errors have been corrected. Because many corrections were made for the REVERT module, it is renamed as REVERT-I (improved version of REVERT). After these corrections, the whole system is running on a CDC-CYBER Computer (NOS-BE operating system).

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Running times depend upon the specific problems that are calculated. For sample problem calculations with 3 nuclides and sphere geometry the following executing sequence was used:

CSRL-IV binary library - AJAX-MALOCS (218-123G) - NITAWL-S-XSDRNPM-S (S8P3 and 123-4G) - OCTAGN-CITATION (4G). The total CPU time was 2.38 m on the CDC-CYBER/855 computer.

13. OPERATING SYSTEM UNDER WHICH PROGRAM IS EXECUTED

The PASC-1 system uses the NOS-BE operating system with the FORTRAN V compiler. Most modules and codes in PASC-1 are also available for the FORTRAN-77 compiler of NOS-VE (virtual operating system). Work is in progress to transfer all codes and files to NOS-VE.
