Feedback from developers and users on issues related to Y2000 compatibility on RSICC-distributed codes is welcome and needed! Please contact RSICC via email or post related information on our electronic notebook. Updated information about Y2K issues in RSICC packages may be found at http://www-rsicc.ornl.gov/year2000.html. The following disclaimer applies to all RSICC-distributed codes/data libraries.
|This material was prepared as an account of Government sponsored work and describes a code system or data library which is one of a series collected by the Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC). These codes/data were developed by various Government and private organizations who contributed them to RSICC for distribution; they did not normally originate at RSICC. RSICC is informed that each code system has been tested by the contributor, and, if practical, sample problems have been run by RSICC. Neither the United States Government, nor the Department of Energy, nor Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation, nor any person acting on behalf of the Department of Energy or Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation, makes any warranty, expressed or implied, or assumes any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, usefulness or functioning of any information code/data and related material, or represents that its use would not infringe privately owned rights.

Several U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) software packages which were transferred from the ESTSC 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.
Two changes or additions were made to the computer code collection during the month. One new code system was packaged and added to the collection, and one code system was extended with an additional hardware version. Both changes resulted from foreign contributions.
The Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, through the OECD NEA Data Bank in Gif-sur-Yvette, France, contributed a personal computer version of MARMER, a point-kernel shielding code system to calculate the dose rate, energy absorption rate, energy flux or gamma-ray flux due to several sources at any point in a complex geometry. The geometry is described by the MARS geometry system which makes use of combinatorial geometry and an array repeating feature. Source spectra may be defined in several ways including an option to read a binary file containing nuclide concentrations calculated by ORIGEN-S. Therefore, MARMER makes use of a nuclide data library containing half-life times, decay energies, and gamma yields for over 1000 nuclides. This PC code is based on the 1990 VAX 6000 release which included ORIGEN-S and a preprocessor named PREORI. Although the PC version does not include ORIGEN, it allows one to use ORIGEN-2 (PCH) output for specifying nuclide composition. Executables created with Lahey F77L-EM/32 Version 5.11 are included in the package which is transmitted on one diskette. Reference: IRI-131-89-03/2 (June 1990). Fortran 77; IBM PC (C00579/PC486/00).
The Inst. f. Reaktorsicherheit, Vienna, Austria, through the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank, Gif-Sur-Yvette, France, contributed this code system to calculate reactivity transients. RETRANS calculates power excursions in light water reactors initiated by reactivity insertions due to withdrawal of control elements. The neutron physical model is based on the time-dependent two-group neutron diffusion equations. The state of the coolant is approximated by a table built into the code. RETRANS solves the heat conduction equation and calculates the heat transfer coefficient for representative fuel rods at each time-step. Modeling is limited to R-Z geometry and one-phase-flow.
The code system runs on SUN Sparcstations under the Sun OS 5.6 (Solaris 2.6) operating system with the Fortran 77 compiler version 4.2. The package is transmitted on a diskette with source and test case in a UNIX tar file. Reference: Computer Physics Communications 38, CPC00507 (May 1985). Fortran 77; SUN SPARC 60 (C00669/SUN05/00).

We have received several requests from SCALE users for organising the next SCALE training course in Europe. As you may know already, from 20-24 September 1999 the "International Conference on Nuclear Criticality Safety (ICNC'99)" will take place in Versailles, France; http://www.ipsn.fr/icnc99/. We have found it therefore convenient to organise this training course the week before that conference. This will facilitate both attendance in the criticality safety training course and be part of the last major event in criticality safety of this decade (sorry but I shall not use the term millennium).
We plan to hold this training course in the premises of the French National Institute for Nuclear Science and Techniques (INSTN) located about 6 miles from Versailles. The course will be given by the authors and code managers from the ORNL (http://www.cad.ornl.gov/scale).
The technical programme of the workshop has been designed by Steve Bowman, SCALE Project Leader, Computational Physics & Engineering Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (phone +1 423-574-5263, fax+1 423-576-3513, email email@example.com). An attendance certificate will be delivered at the end of the course. This course is organised in co-operation with the Radiation Safety Information Computational Center (RSICC). More precise information, including the exact participation fee, location, transportation and accommodation possibilities will be provided later.
