3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

INFLTB calculates mass energy transfer and mass energy absorption coefficients between 1 keV and 100 MeV for 29 elements and 14 mixtures and compounds of general dosimetric interest.
Elements:
---------
HYDROGEN, HELIUM, LITHIUM, BERYLLIUM, CARBON, GRAPHITE, NITROGEN, OXYGEN, FLUORINE, NEON, ALUMINUM, SILICON, SULFUR, ARGON, CALCIUM, TITANIUM, IRON, COPPER, GERMANIUM, KRYPTON, MOLYBDENUM, TIN, IODINE, BARIUM, GADOLINIUM, TUNGSTEN, PLATINUM, URANIUM, SILVER, LEAD.
Mixtures and compounds:
-----------------------
A-150 TISSUE-EQUIVALENT PLASTIC, ADIPOSE TISSUE (ICRP), ADIPOSE TISSUE (ICRU, 1986), AIR, DRY (NEAR SEA LEVEL), BONE, COMPACT (ICRU), BONE, CORTICAL (ICRP), BONE, CORTICAL (ICRU, 1986), CALCIUM  FLUORIDE, CALCIUM FLUORIDE, FERROUS SULFATE (STANDARD FRICKE) DOSIMETER SOLUTION, FERROUS SULFATE ("SUPER" FRICKE) DOSIMETER SOLUTION, GLASS, BOROSILICATE ("PYREX", CORNING 7740), LITHIUM FLUORIDE, MUSCLE, SKELETAL (ICRP), MUSCLE, SKELETAL (ICRU, 1986), MUSCLE, STRIATED (ICRU), POLYETHYLENE, POLYMETHYL METHACRYLATE, "LUCITE", "PERSPEX", "PLEXIGLAS", POLYSTYRENE, POLYTETRAFLUOROETHYLENE, "TEFLON", WATER, LIQUID, WATER VAPOR, TE GAS(METHANE).

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The mass energy transfer coefficient is calculated from the sum of the interaction cross sections (atomic photo effect, Compton scattering, and pair plus triplet production)  multiplied by their respective average fractions of energy transferred to electrons and positrons. The mass energy absorption coefficient is the product of the mass energy transfer coefficient and 1 - G, where G is the average fraction of the secondary electron (or positron) kinetic energy that is spent in bremsstrahlung production and in-flight positron annhilation.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Photon source energies are limited to values between 1 keV and 100 MeV. Radiation  yield files are available only for 29 element and 14 compounds and mixtures.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The running time depends on whether all energies are calculated or only the absorption edges. If only the edges are calculated, the calculation takes only a few seconds. The  sample problem for lead (all energies) required about 10 hours on a  25 MHz PC 386.
PSR-0313/01
The sample problems were executed by the NEA/DB on a PC DELL Optiplex GXM 5100 equipped with a Pentium processor of 99 MHz,  base memory 640 Kbyte and extended memory 32 MByte. One of the sample problems (absorption edges only) takes 1.2 CPU seconds to be  executed, whereas the CPU time required to execute the other sample  problem (complete set of energies) is 35.22 minutes.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

The code was tested on a PC 386, but should run on all IBM PC compatible computers having a math coprocessor. A
VAX version is also available.
PSR-0313/01
The sample problems were executed by the NEA/DB on a PC DELL Optiplex GXM 5100 equipped with a Pentium processor of 99 MHz,  base memory 640 Kbyte and extended memory 32 MByte. The filesize of  the executable INFLT.EXE is 241 Kbyte; The diskspace occupied by the data files is about 2 Megabyte.

13. OPERATING SYSTEM UNDER WHICH PROGRAM IS EXECUTED

The code was written in Fortran 77 and was tested using the Microsoft Version 5.0 compiler. For implementation on other systems, the OPEN statements are placed in one subroutine (SETIO). The VAX version was tested using the VMS Fortran compiler.
PSR-0313/01
The sample problems were executed by the NEA/DB on a PC DELL Optiplex GXM 5100 equipped with a Pentium processor, under MS-DOS 6.2 . The tests performed included the compilation of the source files using the Microsoft FORTRAN-77 compiler (Version 5.10)  and linker (Version 5.15).
