The KASHIL-E70 is a MATXS-format, 199-group neutron and 42-group photon cross section library for shielding applications based on ENDF/B-VII.0. The library contains 204 nuclide data including 8 thermal scattering law data processed by the NJOY99.259 code patched with NEA024. The library can be utilized to generate the problem-dependent group constants for neutron and/or photon transport calculations through the DANTSYS, DOORS, or PARTISN code systems.

4. METHODS

The KASHIL-E70 was generated at 300, 600, 1000, and 2100 K. It contains the self-shielded cross sections for 5 to 8 background cross sections depending on the nuclides. The infinite diluted cross sections for H-1, H-2, C-nat, and Be-9 are included at temperatures given in the thermal scattering law data. The Legendre orders of scattering are P7 for light nuclides (up to Cu-65) and P5 for the remainder of the nuclides. This library has a VITAMIN-B6 energy group structure, i.e. 199 groups for the neutron and 42 groups for the photon. The group structure can be useful for a broader range of applications such as a variety of reactor design and shielding problems including thermal and fast reactor systems. The neutron and photon weighting functions are of the form typically used for fission reactor shielding problems. For the neutron, the weighting function is composed of a smoothly varying combination of a Maxwellian thermal spectrum, a 1/E slowing down spectrum, and a fission spectrum (IWT=4 in GROUPR module of NJOY). For the photon, the function is composed of a 1/E spectrum, with a roll-off at lower energies and a similar drop-off at higher energies (IWT=3 in GAMINR module of NJOY). The library has been validated through the shielding benchmark experiments such as PCA-REPLICA, NESDIP-2, Winfrith Iron 88, Winfrith Graphite, etc.
