Five changes were made to the computer code collection during the month. Four new code systems were packaged and added to the collection and one existing package was updated. One change resulted from a foreign contribution.
OP SYS: Windows
Language: C++, Visual Basic, Fortran 77
The Department of Energy, Washington, updated the PC version of this code system for assessing dose and risk from radionuclide emissions to air in compliance with National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs). The addition of a full screen editor simplifies creation of population data files to be input to CAP88-PC. The Population File Editor is programmed in Visual Basic and must be installed in a Windows (Version 3.1 or later) environment. The package is transmitted on three DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 Mb) diskettes in self-extracting compressed DOS files. Reference: EPA 402-B-92-001 (March 1992). Fortran 77, C++, Visual Basic; IBM PC (C00542/IBMPC/01).
OP SYS: Unix
Language: C, Fortran 77
Computers: Cray, WS
Los Alamos National Laboratory contributed this one-, two-, and three-dimensional, multigroup, discrete-ordinates transport code system. DANTSYS replaces the earlier TWODANT-SYS package and includes five major codes. ONEDANT solves the one-dimensional multigroup transport equation in plane, cylindrical, spherical and two-angle plane geometries. TWODANT solves the two-dimensional multigroup transport equation in x-y, r-z, and r-theta geometries. TWOHEX solves the two-dimensional multigroup transport equation on equilateral triangular meshes in the x,y plane. THREEDANT solves the three-dimensional multigroup transport equation in x-y-z and r-z-theta geometries. TWODANT-GQ solves the two-dimensional transport equation in x-y and r-z geometries on general quadrilaterals. DANTSYS accepts the basic multigroup cross sections for isotopes in either of the standard interface files (ISOTXS or GRUPXS) or in card-image libraries whose formats are referred to as Los Alamos, ANISN, or FIDO. PSR-317/TRANSX2.15 will translate MATXS libraries into these formats.
DANTSYS runs on the following platforms: CRAY-YMP, Sun SparcStation IPX, IBM RS/6000, HP, and Silicon Graphics under Unix-based operating systems. A Fortran 77 compiler, a C-language preprocessor (cpp), a C-compiler, and GMAKE (GnuMake from Free Software Foundation) are required to install the package which is distributed on 1 DC 6150 (150 Mb) cartridge, 4-mm or 8-mm tape in compressed tar format. Reference: LA-12969-M (June 1995). Fortran 77 and C; Cray and workstations (C00547/MFMWS/00).
OP SYS: DOS
Language: Fortran 77
Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, New York, contributed this code system for calculating the disposal unit source term. DUST-BNL solves for release and transport of contaminants from containerized wastes. Each container may have unique properties (i.e., time to failure or localized failure) and each waste form may have unique release properties. Release from the waste form is limited by one of four physical or chemical restraints: solubility, diffusion, dissolution, and surface wash-off with partitioning. The release from the waste form acts as a source for transport in the advection/dispersion equation. Transport is modeled in one-dimension through the groundwater pathway from subsurface disposal. The advection/dispersion transport equation with spatially varying sources (waste forms) is solved using the finite-difference method.
DUST-BNL runs on IBM PC or compatibles with a 386 processor (minimum) with 500 kb of conventional RAM available for execution. Approximately 4 Mb of disk space is required for the entire code package. The Lahey F77L/EM32 V5.0 compiler was used to create the included executables. The package is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 Mb) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files. Reference: NUREG/CR-6041, BNL-NUREG-52375 (1993). Fortran 77; PC 386 (C00634/PC386/00).
OP SYS: DOS, OS/2, VMS, Unix
Idaho National Engineering Laboratory through the ESTSC contributed this code system for radioactive decay and reaction chain calculations. DCHAIN calculates time-dependent daughter populations in radioactive decay and nuclear reaction chains. Chain members can have non-zero initial populations and be produced from the preceding chain member as a result of radioactive decay, a nuclear reaction, or both. Chains can contain up to 15 members. Parent-daughter equilibrium times and relative activities at equilibrium can also be calculated. The calculational method uses a generalized form of the Bateman equations. DCHAIN is written in ANSI C and runs on MS-DOS, OS/2, VMS and Unix operating systems. It has been tested on the PC using Microsoft C V6.0 and QuickC V2.5. An executable is included for personal computers running DOS V2.1 or higher. The package is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in.(1.44 Mb) diskette written in DOS format. Reference: EGG-NRP-11289 (May 1994). C; PC, Vax, DEC, DG, IBM RS/6000 (C00640/MNYCP/00).
OP SYS: Unix
Language: Fortran 77
The Energy Research Foundation, Petten, The Netherlands, contributed this program to calculate group-averaged cross sections for specific zones in a one-dimensional geometry. ROLAIDS-CPM is an extension of ROLAIDS from the PSR-315/AMPX-77 package. The main extension is the capability to use the collision probability method for a slab- or cylinder-geometry rather than the interface-currents method. Collision probabilities in a cylindrical geometry are calculated according to the Carlvik method using a Gauss integration. On Sun or DEC workstations, users may substitute ROLAIDS-CPM for the original version distributed with AMPX. The package is available on 1 DC 6150 (150 Mb), 4-mm or 8-mm tape cartridge in tar format. References: ECN-R-93-013 (Aug. 1993) and ECN-R-93-016 (Dec. 1993). Fortran 77; Sun or DEC workstation (P00353/SUN04/00).
Two new links to home pages for ANS divisions have been added to the RSIC WWW server under "Professional Societies," They are Radiation Protection & Shielding (RP&S) and Nuclear Engineering Education for the Disadvantaged (NEED).
In serving a specialized area of scientific endeavor, it seems important that we note significant events or changes in the activities of people concerned with radiation protection, transport, and shielding in the nuclear industry. We, therefore, continue to carry personal items as they are brought to our attention.
