WEIGHTING SPECTRUM:

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

 

RFL-2 is a group library of reaction cross sections, gas production, kerma and DPA based upon GEFF-2 and GEPDL - which are included in the package ZZ-GEFF-2-GENDF - and upon DECNET - included in the ZZ-DECNET-GENDF package (see below the description of these libraries). RFL-2 has been derived from them by the GENTORFL code (GENdf TO RFL). Its primary use is to complete the neutron transport libraries in ANISN or FIDO format with data normally not present in the traditional files. It includes all GEFF-2 materials at T=293.6K and sigma0 = infinity; as qualifying point it gives "delayed" kerma and "delayed" gamma-ray production matrices, i.e. the energy release and the photons, respectively, generated by the decay of radioactive nuclei produced in the primary reactions; decay events that occur within 10000 seconds from the primary reaction are taken into account. The library includes many isotopes, since for each natural element included in GEFF-2 the decay of all component isotopes have been traced out. The library is in DTF format and the structure is adopted from the MACKLIB-IV library. The list of the included materials is given in one separate file. The position of the reactions in the RFL-2 matrix are given in the ZZRFL2.POS file.

 

Source libraries

 

GEFF-2

 

This P5 library for fusion neutronics calculations is based upon the 175 neutron, 42 photon VITAMIN-J group structure with the standard weighting function: Maxwellian (at the temperature to which the material is referenced) + 1/E + fission spectrum + 1/E + fusion peak + 1/E. It includes 93 materials - almost all from EFF-2 basic data; but Ag-107, Ag-109, natural Cd, the 6 Hf isotopes and the 4 W isotopes have been taken from JEF-2.2 - at 3 temperatures and 6 dilu section values; 10 thermal groups are provided below 3 eV. Neutron cross sections and diffusion matrices, photon and gas production, kerma and DPA are given.

 

GEPDL

 

GEPDL is a 42 group photon interaction P8 library based upon EPDL-90 to be used in conjunction with GEFF-2 for preparing neutron + photon coupled libraries by means of codes such as MATXSR - to produce data for TRANSX - or SMILER - an AMPX-77 module to produce AMPX Master Libraries from GENDF structured data.

 

DECNET

 

DECNET is a library for fusion damage computations of 175 neutron +42 photon VITAMIN-J energy group with the standard weighting function: Maxwellian (at the temperature to which the material is referenced) + 1/E + fission spectrum + 1/E + fusion peak + 1/E; it includes neutron kerma and gamma-ray production data from radioactive nuclei at 3 temperatures with the same materials of ZZ-GEFF-2-GENDF (see below) from 1-H-1 to Bi-209, mostly taken from EFF-2 with some nuclides from JEF-2.2 - Ag-107, Ag-109, Cd, the 6 Hf isotopes and the 4 W isotopes; however the list of the materials disagrees with that of GEFF-2 in that all elemental nuclides have been split into the components isotopes to follow the respective decay chain; and not all materials of GEFF-2 produce nuclei which disintegrate within the assumed decay time of 10000 seconds delay from the primary events which produced the radioactive nucleus. The format of the library is GENDF

4. METHODS

NJOY has been used to process both GEFF-2 and GEPDL; since the processing activities lasted over a couple of years, less important materials were processed with the 91.13 version of the code and the 91.38 has been used to process all the remaining materials, including the whole GEPDL. Some very important modifications have been introduced in the code as far as the kerma computation is concerned, in order to solve problems due to physical inconsistencies of the data and non-standard formats of some materials, e.g. the lump reaction MT 10 - neutron diffusion in the continuum energy region - was not properly treated by the kerma module HEATR.

 

The DECNET library has been produced by the DECKER code which has been developed for this purpose.
