3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The code computes the radioactive inventory of a material subject to neutron irradiation,  continuous or stepwise. It provides activity, atomic density, decay  heat, energy of decay gamma-rays and ingestion hazard of each nuclide; total activity, decay heat, contact dose equivalent, gamma-ray spectra, and other relevant parameters, for the irradiated material, versus cooling time. As an option, these parameters may be plotted as a function of the cooling time.
The code is provided with a complete data base allowing to perform calculations for all the elements with atomic number smaller than 84 (up to bismuth). The cross-sections and the decay data library have been developed in view of the application to fusion technology.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

   NUCLIST - prints the content of the decay data library
DISCHO - may be used to provide graphical display of the results              of ANITA
NEODIR - reads the activation cross section library in EBCDIC              form and build a Direct Access Library for ANITA
NEOLIST - prints the content of Direct Access cross section              library
ZZ-GEAF-1 - 100 groups European Activation File
NEA-1343/03
The following programs are included with the package: MODBIN (formerly NEODIR) builds a direct access binary library from a card image activation file; GRANITA (formerly DISCHO) produces graphical output (in encapsulated PostScritpt format) from the inventory file generated by ANITA-4.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

The program itself requires about 1250 Kbytes. With buffers, it has been running in a memory region of 1500 Kbytes. It uses nine I/O channels, including standard input (5) and  standard output (6). On unit 3 a direct access file is allocated, so it must reside on a disc.
NEA-1343/03
The program has been installed by the NEA Data Bank on a PC with Intel Pentium 200MHz processor and on an IBM RISC/6000 Workstation.
