3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

MCB-ENDF/B6.8 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 150 MeV.
FORMAT: ACE
NUMBER OF GROUPS: Continuous energy
NUCLIDES: Library includes elements with the following atomic numbers:
Z= 1-9, 11-17, 19-29, 31-68, 71-75, 77, 79, 82-83, 90-99, (i.e.: H, He, Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Ga, Ge, As, Se, Br, Kr, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Nb, Mo, Tc, Ru, Rh, Pd, Pd, Ag, Cd, In, Sn, Sb, Te, I, Xe, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Lu, Hf, Ta, W, Re, Ir, Au, Pb, Bi, Th, Pa, U, Np, Pu, Am, Cm, Bk, Cf, Es).
TEMPERATURES: 300 K, 600 K, 900 K, 1200 K, 1500 K, and 1800 K.
ORIGIN: ENDF/B-6.8
WEIGHTING SPECTRUM:

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.
