About one month has passed since we asked our users to complete a new registration form. The response has been positive; we have received the new form from about one-half of our active participants. If you have not already responded, please do so with the form provided with this newsletter. NOTE: If you send your response by fax, please do not mail the original.
The form has several useful purposes for us. First, it is the means by which a user can obtain the monthly RSIC Newsletter. Second, it tells us the kind of technical areas in which our user community is working and what kind of organizations are involved. Third, it offers the user the opportunity to tell us what new developments they have made, or that they are aware of, and offers RSIC the opportunity to acquire the new developments so that they can be shared by the radiation transport community. Finally, the registration form provides RSIC with information about what organizations are funding the work done by the user community. This information is vital and is the primary mechanism that is used to solicit funding on behalf of groups of users doing work for a particular organization. Potential sponsors want this information to be as accurate as possible.
Errata: In the November 1995 issue of the RSIC Newsletter, the new version of NJOY, PSR-355, was announced as NJOY 95.10. It should be NJOY 94.10. We apologize for any confusion this error may have caused.
Four changes were made to the computer code collection. One new code system was packaged and added to the collection, two existing code packages were replaced with newly frozen versions, and one code package was updated. Two changes resulted from foreign contributions.

|The Japanese Atomic Energy Research Institute and the Research
Organization for Information Science and Technology, Tokai-mura,
Naka-gun, Japan, enhanced this package by modifying some of the
included codes and by adding the BERMJ3 data library. BERMUDA
consists of nine codes to solve the time-independent transport equation
for a given fixed source in a variety of geometries. Three codes for
neutron transport were modified in this shielding analysis code system
for use with both fusion and fission reactors. A new 125 neutron
group constants library based primarily on JENDL 3.2 was added, but
gamma-ray cross section and (n,g) production constants for use with
the gamma-ray codes are not yet ready for public distribution. They
are expected later this year. BERMUDA is written in Fortran 77 and
runs on Facom/VP2600 computers. References: JAERI 1327 (May
1992), JAERI-M 93-143 (July 1993), JAERI 94-002 (July 1994), and

|Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California
contributed a newly frozen version of the HOTSPOT codes which are
a first-order approximation of the radiation effects associated with the
atmospheric release of radioactive materials for short-term (less than
24 hours) release durations. These codes produce a consistent output
for the same input assumptions and minimize the probability of errors
associated with reading a graph incorrectly or scaling a universal
nomogram during an emergency. Four general programs calculate a
downwind assessment following the release of radioactive material
resulting from a continuous or puff release, explosive release, fuel
fire, or an area contamination event. Other programs deal with the
release of plutonium, uranium, and tritium to expedite an initial
assessment of accidents involving nuclear weapons. Additional
programs estimate the dose commitment from the inhalation of any
one of the radionuclides listed in the database of radionuclides;
calibrate a radiation survey instrument for ground-survey
measurements; and screen plutonium uptake in the lung. HOTSPOT
uses the Gaussian plume model, and the dosimetric methods of ICRP
Publication 30. |
This new release, Version 8, allows users to add their own custom radionuclide library and to create custom radionuclide mixtures. It also includes wet deposition to approximate the enhanced plume depletion and ground deposition due to the effects of rain. Additional release geometry options for TRITIUM RELEASE and GENERAL PLUME were added, as well as several other enhancements and improvements. The system runs on IBM compatible personal computers with a minimum of 512 K of RAM. It can be run as a DOS application within Windows 3.1 or Windows95. The executables included in the package were compiled with Borland Turbo Pascal 7.0. Reference: UCRL-MA-106315. IBM PC; Pascal (C00644/IBMPC/01).

|Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico
contributed a newly frozen version of this pre-equilibrium, statistical
nuclear-model code system for calculating cross sections and emission
spectra.GNASH-FKK provides a flexible method by which reaction
and level cross sections, isomer ratios, and emission spectra (neutron,
gamma-ray, and charged-particle) resulting from particle-induced
reactions can be calculated. Major improvements in the 1995
GNASH-FKK release include added capabilities: to read in externally
calculated pre-equilibrium spectrum from, e.g., Feshbach-Kermin-Koonin theory, to do multiple pre-equilibrium calculations, to
calculate appropriate spin distributions for nuclear states formed in
pre-equilibrium reactions, and to do incident-photon calculations.
GNASH uses Hauser-Feshbach theory to calculate complicated
sequences of reactions and includes a pre-equilibrium correction for
binary channels. Gamma-ray competition is considered in detail for
every decaying compound nucleus. A multi-humped fission barrier
model is included for fission cross-section calculations. The
SEARCH3 utility, which operates on the output of the GNASH-FKK
code to produce ENDF/B-formatted cross section records, is also
included. The codes run on Cray computers under the UNICOS
operating system. The source codes, data files and test cases are
transmitted on one 1.44 DS/HD 3.5-in. diskette in either compressed
Unix tar format or self-extracting compressed DOS files. Reference:
LA-12343-MS (July 1992). Fortran 77; Cray (P00125/CY000/02).

|Riga Radioisotope Research Institute, Riga, Latvia, contributed this
code system for isotope identification by gamma-ray analysis. For a
set of a priori given nuclides taken from a work library, DIMEN uses
median estimates of the peak areas and estimates of their errors to
produce a list of possible nuclides matching a gamma-ray line and
some measure of the reliability of this assignment. The identification
of a given radionuclide is obtained by searching for a match with the
energy information of a database. This procedure is performed in an
interactive graphic mode by markers that superimpose, on the
experimental data, the energy information provided by a previously
elaborated data library. This library of experimental data includes
16682 gamma-ray energy lines related to 749 known gamma emitter
radioisotopes currently listed by the ICRP.|
The code was tested on a PC 486, but should run on all IBM PC compatible computers. DIMEN was written in Pascal, and the original source code file was broken into several units by RSIC to test compilation using Microsoft QuickPascal. The package is distributed on two 3.5-in. DS/DD (1.44 MB) diskettes written in DOS format. References: Nucl. Inst. Meth. Phys. Res. A328, 542-546 (1993), Specrochimica Acta, 49B (9), 941-945 (1994), Informal notes (1995).

|The Japanese Atomic Energy Research Institute and the Research Organization for Information Science and Technology, Tokai-mura, Naka-gun, Japan, contributed a new library for use with their BERMUDA discrete ordinates code system. BERMJ3 consists of neutron group constants for 30 nuclides in a 125 energy group structure ranging from 0 eV to 16.5 MeV. The data are based on the JENDL-3.2 nuclear data library and were processed with the PROF-GROUCH-G/B code system. For elastic and inelastic scattering, cross section and Legendre coefficients are given for each level and for each energy group. For inelastic scattering, together with (n,2n), (n,3n) reactions, the isotropic scattering matrix is given for each group. Resonance self-shielding factors for 300 degrees Kelvin are given so that effective cross sections are obtainable in the resonance energy region. References: JAERI 95-006 (1995) In Japanese.
