3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

MCB-JEF2.2 is a continuous-energy cross section libraries in ACE format suitable for the MCB-1C and MCNP codes. Libraries for various materials were generated at six different temperatures, and cover the energy range up to 20 MeV.
FORMAT: ACE
NUMBER OF GROUPS: Continuous energy

8. RELATED OR AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

MAKSF, which is distributed with
CCC-700/MCNP4C, can be used to convert MCNP Type 1 data to Type 2 (binary). For use with the code MCB-1C the MAKXSF installation must be slightly modified.
