3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The Cross-section Transport Sensitivity and Uncertainty (XSUN) package is a Windows interface for running deterministic transport computer code sequence. At present, the system integrates the codes for the nuclear cross-section preparation (TRANSX-2.15), the code PARTISN for 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensional neutron and gamma transport calculations and the SUSD3D code for the nuclear data sensitivity and uncertainty analysis. XSUN was developed to help users in preparation of input cards, rapid modification and execution of these codes. User-friendly plotting codes are also available to produce 2D color schemes of PARTISN geometries (e.g. x-y, r-Theta, ...) and for 3-dimensional visualisation of neutron fluxes and spectra.

4. METHODS

The user - computer interface is based on the Xbase++ Compiler 1.90.331 and Alaska 32-Bit Linker.

8. RELATED OR AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

In the XSUN-2017 sequence the PARTISN and TRANSX codes are called. However these codes are not included in this package and have to be requested separately from the NEA-DB or RSICC:

  • PSR-0317 TRANSX-2.15

  • CCC-0760 PARTISN 5.97
