1. NAME AND TITLE
PALLAS-1D(VII): Multigroup Time-Independent Neutron Transport Code System for Plane or Spherical Geometry.
Ship Research Institute, Tokyo, Japan.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV (C00380FM38000).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
PALLAS-PL/SP solves multigroup time-independent one-dimensional neutron transport problems in plane or spherical geometry. The problems solved are subject to a variety of boundary conditions or a distributed source. General anisotropic scattering problems are treated for solving deep-penetration problems in which angle-dependent neutron spectra are calculated in detail.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Energy dependence is treated by the multigroup approximation and angular dependence by a discrete ordinates approximation. A system of coupled one-group integral transport equations is calculated by performing a line integration along the neutron path in the direction of motion at each discrete ordinate direction. Scattering integral including anisotropic scattering is treated by a numerical integration. No iteration scheme is applied in the calculation. The resulting solutions are always physically reasonable and have no oscillating flux distributions sometimes found in discrete ordinates solutions.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The PALLAS-PL/SP program cannot treat thermal neutron transport problems. This code is also not appropriate for a mono-energy neutron transport problem.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
No study has been made by RSIC.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code is operable on the FACOM computers. It requires 55 Kw core memories and a maximum of 1.041 Kw disk or drum memories in the case of a maximum of 120 energy groups, 300 spatial mesh points, 20 angular mesh points and 18 nuclei.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran IV compiler is required.

11. CONTENTS OF CODE PACKAGE
Included are the referenced document and one DS/HD 3.5-in. (1.44 MB) diskette in self-extracting compressed DOS files which contains the source codes and sample problem input and output.
