RSIC Associates Among Nine ANS Fellows

Among the nine American Nuclear Society (ANS) honored during the 1994 ANS Winter Meeting were long-time RSIC associates. The citation of fellow is given for notable original research or invention in the nuclear field; scientific or technical leadership in a nuclear enterprise of substantial scope; outstanding leadership as a teacher in the nuclear field; outstanding leadership in design, engineering, and operating efforts in the nuclear field; or outstanding efforts in the areas of nuclear health, safety, and regulation. The citations for John (Jack) C. Courtney and Alain Kavenoky follow.

John C. Courtney, professor of nuclear engineering, Louisiana State University, "is a dedicated teacher who played a key role in involving students in National Laboratory programs and launching them into highly productive careers in the nuclear industry. Additionally, he is a nationally recognized authority in radiation shielding and waste management working as visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory-West since 1975."

Alain Kavenoky, manager, computers and telecommunications department, Commissariat l'Energie Atomique, "For leadership in the development of computational methods applied in the design and operation of French light water reactors. These methods have made a significant contribution to the efficiency and safety of this very successful nuclear energy program."

All of us at RSIC know how well-deserved this award is for both Courtney and Kavenoky and add our congratulations to both of them.

CHANGES TO THE COMPUTER CODE COLLECTION

Four changes were made to the computer code collection during the month. One new code system was packaged and added to the collection, two existing code packages were replaced with newly frozen versions, and one package was enhanced with additional libraries. One change resulted from a foreign contribution.

CCC-512/TIBSO

OP SYS: DOS, VMS

Language: Fortran 77

Computers: many

Format: DOS

The KFKI Institute of Atomic Energy Research in Budapest, Hungary, contributed a newly frozen version of this code system to calculate the production and migration of radionuclides in nuclear reactor systems. TIBSO follows the nuclear transition and the spatial migration of radioactive models. The modeling of such processes is established in a very flexible way, enabling the user to investigate a wide range of problems. Nuclear data libraries from CCC-371/ORIGEN2 are used. Libraries for structural, fission product, and actinide materials are provided as part of the package, which is transmitted on one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files. Written in Fortran 77, this system has run on PC-386, Vax/VMS, and IBM RS/6000 workstations. References: Informal report (1994). Fortran 77; PC 386, Vax, IBM RS/6000 (C00512/MNYCP/00).\

CCC-601/GENII 1.485

OP SYS: DOS

Language: Fortran 77, Basic

Computers: PC

Format: DOS

This environmental radiation dosimetry software system was enhanced with the addition of new data contributed by Westinghouse Hanford Company, Richland, Washington. GENII is a coupled system of seven programs and associated data libraries that comprise the Hanford Dosimetry System (Generation II). The code system estimates potential radiation doses to individuals or populations from both routine and accidental releases of radionuclides to air or water and residual contamination from spills or decontamination operations. The new data improves the treatment of decay chains for calculations of doses from contaminated soil allowed to decay for hundreds of years. Air transport calculations are largely unaffected by these changes due to the short decay times involved. For this release the GENII developer at Pacific Northwest Laboratory authorized the addition of the GENII and APPRENTICE Fortran and Basic source files to the package. (The original distribution included executables only.) Note that no changes have been made to either the source or executable files for this update.

GENII runs on IBM PC/AT or compatible computers equipped with an 80287 math coprocessor and 640K of random access memory. Executables included in the package were created with the Lahey F77L and Microsoft QuickBASIC 3.0 compilers. APPRENTICE also requires the proprietary Komputerwerk FINALLY! Modules library. The package is transmitted on 5 DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskettes in self-extracting compressed DOS files. References: PNL-6584 (Dec. 1988) and WHC-SD-WM-TI-596 (Nov. 1993). Fortran 77 and Basic; IBM PC (C00601/IBMPC/01).

CCC-616/BERMUDA

OP SYS: OS-IV/F4-MSP

Language: Fortran 77, assembler

Computers: Facom

Format: tar

The Japanese Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) and Nuclear Energy Data Center in Naka-gun, Japan, have enhanced this package with additional codes. BERMUDA contains nine codes to solve the time-independent transport equation for a given fixed source in a variety of geometries. In addition to the original four codes for neutron transport (which have been modified in this version) four gamma-ray transport codes and one adjoint neutron transport code were added to this shielding analysis code system for use with both fusion and fission reactors. A 125-neutron group constants library based primarily on JENDL 2 is included, but gamma-ray cross section and (n,g) production constants for use with the gamma-ray codes are not yet ready for public distribution and should be released late in 1995. BERMUDA is written in Fortran 77 and runs on Facom/VP2600 computers. The package is available on cartridge in tar format. References: JAERI 1327 (May 1992), JAERI-M 93-143 (July 1993), and JAERI 94-002 (July 1994). Fortran 77; Facom/VP2600 (C00616/FV260/01).

PSR-350/MC**2-2

OP SYS: OS/VS

Language: Fortran IV, assembler

Computers: IBM 370

Format: DOS, tar

Argonne National Lab., Argonne, Illinois, through the Energy Science and Technology Software Center (ESTSC) contributed the MC**2-2 code system to calculate fast neutron spectra and multigroup cross sections. MC**2-2 solves the neutron slowing-down equations using basic neutron data derived from ENDF/B data files to determine spectra for use in generating multigroup neutron cross sections. This 1981 IBM 370 version, which processes ENDF/B-V data, was recently transferred to RSIC. No changes have been made to the code since it was originally packaged by the Nuclear Energy Software Center (NESC) in 1982. The package is available on cartridge in tar compressed format or on 9 diskettes in DOS self-extracting files. References: ANL-8144 (June 1976) and ANL/AP Memorandum (January 1981). Fortran IV and assembler; IBM 370 (P00350/I0370/00).

UT-Knoxville Offers Short Courses During TIW-30

The Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville is offering several short courses of interest to radiation transport specialists during Tennessee Industries Week (TIW-30), August 1418, 1995.

Computational Methods in Reactor Analysis will familiarize the course participant with computational methods and computer codes currently used to describe the neutronic behavior of nuclear fission reactors. Emphasis will be placed on "understanding" the neutronic models and associated numerical methods currently employed in codes. A good understanding of the models and methods is essential for the successful use of the codes in designing new reactors or improving the performance and safety of existing reactors. Areas to be covered include multi-dimensional diffusion theory methods and perturbation theory methods for applications in reactor statics, space-dependent kinetics, and fuel depletion; transport theory methods including the discrete ordinates method, integral transport theory, and the Monte Carlo method; and cross section generation and processing utilizing the AMPX and SCALE systems developed at ORNL. Special emphasis in the course is placed on the Monte Carlo method because of its widespread use and importance for nuclear system analysis.

Nuclear Criticality Safety is designed for those participants who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of nuclear criticality safety. Six instructors will share over 130 years of experience with new and experienced professionals in nuclear criticality safety. The course topics include illustrative applications using the SCALE system with emphasis on the Monte Carlo code KENO Va, standards, regulations, review of accidents, hand calculational methods, subcritical limits, code validation techniques, emergency response, process upsets and recovery actions, and transient excursion modeling.

Contemporary Issues in Nuclear Power Reactor Safety presents an overview of evolving issues in nuclear power reactor safety, their potential regulatory impact, and the status of the supporting technology. These areas include risk-based regulation, implementation of severe accident considerations, issues regarding certification of advanced plants, and current research and development. Participants should have a background equivalent to a bachelor's degree in engineering or related physical sciences.

An Introduction to Fusion Technology for the Practicing Engineer presents a comprehensive introduction to Fusion Science and Technology from an engineering point of view.
