Six changes were made to the computer code collection during the month. One new code system was packaged and added to the collection, two code systems were replaced with newly frozen versions, two code packages were updated, and one code package was extended to include an additional hardware version. Two changes resulted from foreign contributions.
OP SYS: DOS
Language: Fortran 77
Computers: CDC, PC
The CAMERA radiation transport analysis and computerized man model code system was originally developed by the NASA Johnson Space Flight Center in Houston, Texas. Although the model has not changed since it was released by RSIC in 1974, in 1990 Experimental and Mathematical Physics Consultants, Gaithersburg, Maryland, converted it to run on personal computers. In this update a minor correction was made to the PC version of this code system to add a common block omitted from the original source distribution.
The MicroSoft Fortran Version 5.0 compiler and Assembler Version 5.1 were used to create the executable included in the package, which is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files. References: MDC-G4655 (Sept. 1973). Fortran IV, CDC CYBER (C00240/C0074/00) and Fortran 77, IBM PC (C00240/IBMPC/00).
OP SYS: DOS
Language: Fortran 77, C
Pacific Northwest Laboratory in Richland, Washington, updated the VARSKIN Mod 2 code system which calculates the radiation dose (gamma and beta) to skin from radioactive contamination of skin or protective clothing. None of the changes made to the VARINT and SADDE modules affect the operating instructions or calculational methodology. Corrections to the typographical and writing errors identified in the document, as announced in the October and December 1994 issues of the Health Physics Society's Newsletter, are included in the RSIC documentation.
VARSKIN 2 has been tested on IBM PC and compatibles equipped with a graphics card. A math coprocessor is desirable. The executables included in the package were compiled using MicroSoft Fortran version 5.0 and MicroSoft C version 6.0 under MicroSoft DOS version 5.0. The source, executables, and test case are transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette written in DOS format. References: NUREG/CR-5873 (Nov. 1992). Fortran 77 and C; IBM PC (C00522/IBMPC/02).
OP SYS: VMS, DOS
Language: Fortran 77
The Josef Stefan Institute of Ljubljana, Slovenia, through the NEA Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France, contributed a newly frozen version of this code system which solves the multigroup neutron diffusion equation on coarse mesh in one-, two-, and three-dimensional Cartesian geometry. The program calculates the global core power distributions as well as power distributions and homogenized cross sections over a fuel assembly. GNOMER uses a variant of the Green's function method for the one-dimensional equations and applies the nodal approach for extension to multidimensional cases.
Procedures for generating the executable code on VAX (under VMS) and PC are included. On a PC, either the MicroSoft Fortran Version 5.10, the MicroWay NDP Fortran-486 Ver 4.4.0 or the Lahey Fortran Version 5.20 are required. Source files, an NDP-generated executable, command files, and test cases are distributed on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files. Reference: IJS-DP-6688, Rev. 2 (July 1994). Fortran 77; VAX and PC (C00625/MNYCP/01).
OP SYS: DOS, AIX
Language: Fortran 77, C
Computers: Cray, workstation
Oak Ridge National Laboratory contributed an IBM RS/6000 version of this code system for creating cross-section data sets for ANISN, DORT and TORT. Numerous options include adjointing, Pn adjustments, changing table length, mixing, transport corrections of ANISN-type cross sections, and management of cross-section data sets and libraries. The AMP (Activity Manipulation Program) and GIP program for creating group-organized cross-section input are also included.
The new release runs on IBM RS/6000 under AIX 3.2.5 using the XLF (version 2.3) compiler. The package is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette written in DOS format.

OP SYS: many
Language: Fortran 77
The CEA/CEN Service de Physique Theorique, Saclay, France, through the NEA Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France, contributed a newly frozen version of this code system to solve the coupled differential equations arising in nuclear model calculations. ECIS-94 is an update of and obsoletes ECIS-88. Besides the use of Bessel expansion for form factors, the use of deformation lengths, and the use of symmetrized Woods-Saxon potentials, ECIS-94 includes two bound states transitions for particle hole excitations, with the possibility of the particle in the continuum, expansion of cross-sections in terms of Legendre polynomials, possibility of angular distribution for uncoupled states without giving explicitly all the reduced nuclear matrix elements, and for Coulomb excitation, use of a magnetic multipole.
ECIS-94 runs on many computers including IBM/MVS, VAX/VMS, CRAY/COS, CONVEX, Sun, and DEC-APX. A Fortran 77 compiler is required on all systems; some assembler language is also used on IBM/MVS. The package is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files. Reference: CEA-N-2722 (September 1994). Fortran 77, (Assembler for IBM); Mainframes and Workstations (P00227/MFMWS/01).
OP SYS: DOS
Language: Fortran 77, MathCad
The National Accelerator Center, Faure, South Africa, contributed this code system to prepare burnup-dependent multigroup nuclear reactor source terms. BUCORST uses a rigorous source term model to produce a multigroup source term for reactor shielding calculations in one-dimensional cylindrical geometry. Tabular prompt fission neutron spectra for 235U, 238U, and 239Pu, derived from a sophisticated microscopic model calculation, are used. An approximate prompt and delayed fission gamma-ray model is also included. Output is written in a format suitable for direct importation into ANISN or XSDRNPM input data sets.
BUCORST runs on 80386 IBM-compatible PC's with at least 4 MB of RAM. MicroSoft Windows 3.1 and MathCad 3.1 are required. Lahey F77L/EM32 V5.1 was used to create the executable included in the package, which is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files. References: NAC/93-01 (June 1993) and NSE: 114, 87-101 (1993). Fortran 77 and MathCad 3.1 for MS Windows 3.1, 80386 PC (P00339/PC386/00).
Charles W. Maynard, born October 18, 1926, in Maynard, Arkansas, died February 18, 1995, at the age of 68. At the time of his death he was professor emeritus of nuclear engineering and engineering physics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Maynard attended the University of Arkansas and the University of Maryland where he received an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering. He received his PhD. in theoretical solid state physics from Harvard University in 1957. Before coming to the University of Wisconsin in 1961, Maynard was a senior scientist at the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in Pittsburgh. He served on the university faculty until his retirement in 1992. During his tenure he took sabbaticals at Sandia Corporation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and at the Kurchatov Institute of Atomic Energy in Moscow. He specialized in reactor theory, transport theory, neutronics and nuclear data, and pioneered the development of the neutronics of fusion reactor blankets. A devoted educator, many of his students are now leaders in nuclear engineering at universities and national laboratories. He was a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society, served as a consultant to several national laboratories, served as Director of the University of Wisconsin Nuclear Reactor Laboratory from 1976 to 1981, was a member of the American Board for Engineering and Technology Committee on engineering accreditation. Dr. Maynard was a long-time friend and supporter of RSIC.
RSIC attempts to keep its users/contributors advised of conferences, courses, and symposia in the field of radiation protection, transport, and shielding through this section of the newsletter. Should you be involved in the planning/organization of such events, feel free to send your announcements and calls for papers to RSIC.
The International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA) is an international association of individuals who are members of an affiliated national or regional Associate Society. IRPA now has more than 15,000 members in more than 35 Associate Societies in over 40 countries. The primary purpose of IRPA is to provide a forum for those engaged in radiation protection activities in all countries to communicate with each other and advance radiation protection in many parts of the world. Science, medicine, engineering, technology and law are examined in the search to provide for the protection of man and his environment from the hazards caused by radiation. In this pursuit, the IRPA supports and provides for international meetings on radiation protection. The IRPA Congress is held about every four years.
For Associate Societies of IRPA and individual members, it is important to attend the next International IRPA Congress in Vienna, April 14-19, 1996. For related professions it is an excellent opportunity to communicate their achievements, scientific knowledge and operational experience in radiation protection. Professional training will be an important part of the Congress program. In addition to the scientific sessions, a wide selection of refresher courses will be offered.
IRPA and the Austrian host society, with the help of related international organizations and the Associate Societies of IRPA, will provide financial support for a substantial number of qualified colleagues who otherwise would be unable to participate in the Vienna Congress.
Abstracts are invited on any of the major topics listed below. A complete list of topics and the abstract submission form is available from the Congress Secretariat, IRPA9 Congress Organizing Committee, Austropa-Interconvention, P.O. Box 30, A-1043, Vienna, Austria.
