"A great leader never sets himself above his followers except in carrying responsibilities." -- Jules Ormont



As we look back on this year of events, now more than ever, let's remember the "reason for the season." The RSICC staff would like to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the coming year bring all you hope for.

RSICC Responds to National Security Concerns

In light of the September 11, 2001, incidents and heightened security, some of the RSICC web information will have restricted access. RSICC will continue to serve the U.S. research communities through its web presence. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience our users may experience.

Fritz Schmidt Visits

An RSICC employee from the 1970's visited us October 31. Fritz Schmidt has been in Germany for the past 30 years working for KE Technologies associated with the University of Stuttgart. His research has been with PBMR and plume migration during accident conditions. It was enjoyable to see his face when he was told that RSICC has over 1500 codes/data in the collection now!

NRC Codes Made Available

Six U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) software packages which were transferred from the Energy Science and Technology Software Center, Oak Ridge, Tennessee to RSICC were incorporated into the RSICC computer code collection. Please browse the computer code abstracts available at RSICC's www site for more information on these packages.


Changes to the Computer Code and Data Collection

One newly frozen version was added to the computer code software and data collection along with one correction and one new package. Two are foreign contributions.

OP SYS: Windows or VMX
Language: Fortran 77
Computers: PC or Vax
Format: Self-extracting windows

The Institute of Nuclear Sciences "Vinca", Physics Laboratory (090) Beograd, Yugoslavia, through the OECD NEA Data Bank, contributed a newly frozen version of FOTELP. The new release FOTELP-2KG, simulates the transport of photons, electrons and positrons by Monte Carlo method for numerical experiments in dosimetry, radiation shielding, and radiotherapy. It can be used for evaluating efficiency of detectors and counters, for computing the absorbed energy in the layers of microelectronics components, for estimating radiation damage of materials, and for other numerical experiments concerning the mentioned particles. Codes from this package perform calculations in 3D geometry with random spectra of particles having energy in the range from 1 keV to 100 MeV and material region for which geometry can be described by planes and surfaces of second order. FOTELP codes apply transition probabilities from the previous to the following state of phase space which are prepared by the included FEPDAT code. Versions of FOTELP and FEPDAT codes for preparation of transition probabilities are described in the User's Manual.

FOTELP-2KG is operable on the VAX or PC. The MicroSoft Fortran compiler (Ver 4.0) can be used to compile the source files under MS-DOS or Windows. RSICC used the Digital Visual Fortran 6.0 compiler to generate executable files under Windows 2000 Professional, and these executables are included in the distribution package. The package is transmitted in a self-extracting, compressed Windows file which contains the documentation, Fortran 77 sources, executables, and test cases. Reference: NET-87 (June 2001). Fortran 77; PC and Vax (C00581/IBMPC/02).

Tokai Research Establishment, Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, Tokai-mura, Ibaraki-ken, and the O-arai Engineering Center, Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute, O-arai-machi, Ibaraki-ken, JAPAN, through the OECD NEA Data Bank in France, contributed this package which includes a modified version of the CCC-371/ORIGEN2.1 code along with the libraries from that package plus new libraries, which are based on current reactor designs using the newest nuclear data file JENDL-3.2 developed in Japan. The libraries contain not only one-grouped cross section data but also variable actinide cross sections and decay and fission yield data. Main objectives of the libraries are to calculate isotopic compositions averaged over whole fuel assemblies for the case of LWR and isotopic compositions averaged over a whole core for the case of FBR. Target fuel assemblies are PWR 17×17 type and BWR 8×8 or 9×9 type. Target core and blanket types of FBR are chosen from several considered specifications.  Evaluation of the LWR libraries was conducted by the analysis of latest post irradiation examinations carried out in Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. The evaluation showed improved results of many isotopes. Evaluation of the FBR libraries was carried out by the comparison between new and old libraries of FBR. The calculated weights of several isotopes presented large differences. The Japanese developers ran the code under SunOS4, Solaris 2.5.1, RedHat Linux 5.2(j), and Compaq Alpha Tru65 Unix 5.0. It was compiled at RSICC under Solaris 2.6, but test cases were not run.  The package is transmitted on one CD ROM as a GNU compressed tar file, which includes Fortran source files, data libraries, test cases, and documentation.  A Fortran compiler is required to compile the code; no executables are included. This package was erroneously announced in the initial release of our December 2001 Newsletter as DLC-216/ORLIBJ32.  References:  JAERI-Data/Code 2000-036 (September 2000),  JAERI-Data/Code 99-003 (January 2001).  Fortran 77; DEC Alpha, Sun, Linux (C00703/MNYWS/00).

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN, contributed version 15a of MARLOWE, dated September 1, 2001. The new package includes some error corrections for the previous release. It also includes Version 3 of TABULA, a program which uses MARLOWE procedures to tabulate scattering integrals and related data.

MARLOWE is a flexible, comprehensive, and highly portable program for simulating atomic collision processes in crystalline solids with the binary collision approximation. It is used to study phenomena governed by such collisions, including the sizes and shapes of displacement cascades, sputtering, ion ranges, ion reflection, and so on. The program has been used for many years on many different computers and is fully supported on Unix, Linux, and Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000 systems. Compilers are required on all computers. No executables are included. The GNU f77 compiler can be used on most systems. Fortran 90 and C; Unix and Linux systems; Windows 95/98/NT PCs (P00137/MNYCP/06).

************ DLC-216/ORLIBJ32 ************

This package was erroneously announced in the initial release of the December 2001 Newsletter as DLC-216/ORLIBJ32.  Because of the inclusion of a modified version of the CCC-371/ORIGEN2.1 code, it will be distributed as a code package.  See the CCC-703/ORIGEN-JENDL32 announcement in this same newsletter.  We apologize for the confusion this may cause our users.

MCNPX is the LANL all-particle, all-energy (eV-TeV) Monte Carlo transport code based on MCNP4C, LAHET, CEM, etc. MCNPX has been been in active development since 1995, sponsored by the particle accelerator community. It has now become an accepted tool for a broad range of applications by nuclear engineers, physicists, and scientists.  The MCNPX development effort has expanded the use of the Los Alamos tools to applications such as APT, waste transmutation, accelerator shielding and health physics, particle beam cancer therapy, space shielding and cosmic ray analysis, Single Event Effects in semiconductors, radiography, and more detailed analysis of the effects of light and heavy ions in matter. In addition, the entire functionality of MCNP4C is retained. New variance reduction and data analysis techniques, many adapted from high energy accelerator methodologies have also been added, such as the extensive 'mesh tally' capability which allows up to 3-d plotting of particle tracks, fluence and fluence-derived quantities, energy deposition, next event estimator generation contributions and particle sources.

All workshops include hands-on instruction generally on PC Windows machines.  Subject to participant export approval for the MCNPX beta test team, participants will be able to access the Fortran-90 version of MCNPX 2.4, the LA150 (150 MeV) cross-section data for over 40 isotopes for incident neutrons and protons, and 12 for photonuclear interactions, and a notebook of viewgraphs. Followup consultation for class participants will be provided.

Classes are taught directly by experienced MCNPX code developers and instructors. More information on course topics and fees can be found at the registration website http://mcnpxworkshops.com.
