3. DESCRIPTION

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

FORMAT: format of an AMPX-II Master Library Interface

 

NUMBER OF GROUPS: 219 neutron energy groups (78 thermal)

 

NUCLIDES: H, B, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, Cl, K, Ca, Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni, Sr, Zr, Mo, Sn, Gd, Hf, U, Pu, Am

 

ORIGIN: JEF-1

 

WEIGHTING SPECTRUM: Two weighting functions have been used:

  • Fission-1/E-Maxwellian with a temperature of 300 K

  • 1/(σt*E)

 

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

The library is given in the format of an AMPX-II Master Library Interface.

The source of microscopic data is JEF-1; 64 materials were processed with values of σp.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Many kinds of problems were encountered in processing JEF-1 (which adopts the ENDF/B-V format) with AMPX-II (especially designed to process ENDF/B-IV formatted data). For some nuclei, pre-processing tasks had to be performed in order to solve specific problems, e.g. format conversion of angular data from shortened ENDF/B-V format to explicit ENDF/B-IV. Most of the tasks could successfully be solved with the code CRECTJ5, while in some cases specific codes had to be written.
