Reported Error with the BUGLE-96 Library

Users of the BUGLE-96 cross section data library need to be aware of an issue with the up-scattering treatment in the library. Customers from Westinghouse Electric Company, LLC discovered that the BUGLE-96 library does not utilize the ANISN up-scattering treatment as declared in the manual for the code. Oak Ridge National Laboratory no longer maintains the BUGLE-96 library, and customers are encouraged to utilize the BUGLE-B7 library that is based on the ENDF/B-VII.0 library.
