3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN 77; FACOM M-380.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
RADHEAT-V4 is a modular code system for analyzing the neutron and gamma-ray transport and calculating the energy deposition and atomic displacements due to these radiation effects in a nuclear reactor or shield. Multigroup cross sections for neutrons and photons are generated by using the evaluated nuclear data ENDF/B, JENDL and DLC-15 (Storm-Israel photon interaction data).
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
A pointwise processing technique and the Bondarenko type resonance self-shielding factors are adopted to generate multigroup cross sections. One- and two-dimensional discrete ordinates transport methods and three-dimensional Monte Carlo method are used for the shielding calculation.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The maximum numbers of neutron and photon fine-group are 200 and 50, respectively. The maximum number of angular meshes in the macroscopic cross section is 64. The energy ranges from .0000261eV to 16.74MeV for neutron and 1Kev to 20 MeV for photon.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
For the FAIR-CROSS code, step 1 took about 3 minutes; step2 took 2 minutes; step 3 took 5 seconds. TWOWAY took about 1 minute. FDEM took about 10 seconds. BREM took 20 seconds. DIAC took 20 seconds. ESPRIT took 2 minutes. The cases were run on the FACOM M-380 at JAERI.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code will operate on the FACOM M-380.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code requires a FORTRAN 77 compiler and an Assembler compiler. The compiler used at JAERI is the FACOM MST.
