1. NAME AND TITLE
DTF69: One-Dimensional Multigroup Photon Transport Discrete Ordinates Code System.
DTFALL: Input Data Generator.
GAMLEG69: Cross Section Generator.
DTF69 is a modified version of DTF-IV (CCC-42), written at LANL for the solution of neutron transport problems. GAMLEG69 is an extensive modification of the LANL-written GAMLEG (also packaged in CCC-42).
Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN IV; CDC 6600.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
DTF69 applies the method of discrete ordinates to the gamma-ray transport problem. The major addition required to existing discrete ordinates methods used in neutron transport is a device for processing gamma-ray cross section data. This is provided in GAMLEG69. Provisions are included for external photon sources and the capability to treat secondary radiation such as fluorescence and positron annihilation photons.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The main body transport code system, DTF69, is an evolutionary step beyond DTF-IV which is well documented. Apart from its ability to deal with gamma rays, DTF69 has the following distinguishing features: 1) Time dependence is handled by Laplace transform with a newly developed inversion technique; 2) A convergence acceleration scheme using Chebychev polynomials is included; 3) A buckling term to correct for transverse leakage is incorporated; 4) Provision is made for fluorescent and annihilation radiation. (These are particle production processes and ordinarily would introduce an essential complication.); and 5) The source options available are a volume distributed isotropic source, a point isotropic source in the center of a spherically symmetric system, and an angle dependent current falling upon the right boundary.
The gamma ray processing routine GAMLEG69 integrates basic gamma-ray data to produce for each energy group and material the energy deposition, total, absorption (photo electric plus pair production), secondary production cross sections (fluorescence and pair production), and group transfer cross sections representing the Klein-Nishina scattering process.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
No study has been made by RSIC of typical running times for DTF69.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The codes were designed for the CDC 6600. Standard I-O equipment is used.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The codes will compile and execute on the standard CDC FORTRAN IV Monitor System.
