3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

ETOE (ENDF/B to MC**2 data conversion) accepts cross section data from a mode 2 ENDF/B tape and prepares the binary cross section and Legendre polynomial tape for the MC**2 code written by Argonne National Laboratory. The ETOE program processes formats I, II, and III ENDF/B data tapes.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The restrictions as to storage limitations and options are basically those imposed by the 1966 ENDF/B restrictions and the MC**2 program (ACC Abstract 355).

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The average running time varies from 3 to 6 minutes on the CDC3600 per material processed dependent on resonance scattering calculations and Legendre polynomial calculations.

NEA-DB executed the test case included in the package on IBM 3081K in 35 CPU seconds.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

ETOE prepares input to the MC**2 program (see reference 2) using a mode 2 ENDF/B tape. The DAMMET program (ACC Abstract 384) may be used to create the mode 2 binary tape for ENDF/B format I data. The DAMMET and RIGEL programs (ACC Abstract 475) may be used to create the mode 2 binary tape for ENDF/B format II data and RIGEL may be used to create the mode 2 binary tape for ENDF/B format III data.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

65k memory and 7 magnetic tapes - standard input, standard output, ENDF/B, MC**2, 2 scratch tapes, and an overlay tape are required for the CDC3600. The IBM360 version requires 600k bytes of memory.
NESC0350/04
To execute the test case of the package on IBM 3081K, 136K bytes of main storage are required.

14. ANY OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

The CDC3600 version of ETOE is made up of six overlays. Overlays 1-5 process the ENDF/B tape data. Overlay 6 rearranges the Legendre polynomial expansion data to the MC**2 format. An initial (additional) input card (format 6I6) is required for the IBM360 version, assigning the logical unit numbers required. Field 1 (cols. 1-6) identifies the card input unit, field 2 (cols. 7-12) the ENDF/B data tape unit, field 3 (cols. 13-18) the MC**2 tape unit, field 4 (cols. 19-24) the elastic and inelastic scattering cross section scratch unit, field 5 (cols. 25-30) the Legendre coefficient scratch unit, and field 6 (cols. 31-36) the W table unit.
