RSICC CODE PACKAGE CCC-698
1. NAME AND TITLE
WIMS-ANL, Version 4.00: Deterministic Code System for Lattice Calculation.
Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; Unix Sun and PC (Windows 95, 98, NT and Linux) (C00698MNYCP00).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The WIMS-ANL code is an extension of the Winfrith WIMS-D4 code for lattice
cell computations. This code has been tailored to address some of the problem
areas encountered in dealing with research reactor fuels, experiment, reflector
and control regions. The SUPERCELL option eliminates some of the limitations
of the traditional SPECTROX solution and supports the solution of more
complex geometries with a more detailed spatial mesh and multiple resonance
materials. The code generates both macroscopic and microscopic cross sections
in the ISOTXS format with any selected number of energy groups. The user
can specify which fission product isotopes are to be explicitly included
in the microscopic burnup dependent ISOTXS library. Fission product library
data can be generated for use with the MCNP code and burnup dependent applications.
The cross section library data provided are based on ENDF/B version VI
(69 group) and V (69 and 172 group) data. A revised 172 group library based
on ENDF/B-VI is being generated with newer data and additional isotopes.
This library will be made available at a later time. The code is variably
dimensioned so that other group structures could be used. The source code
and output format have been completely revised to reflect current coding
practices and to permit display of the results on typical desk top monitors.
The content of the output displayed is completely under the user's control.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The methods of solution in WIMS-ANL remain unchanged from those used
in the original WIMS-D4 code with the same resonance treatment and a choice
of collision probability and DSN solutions for the simple lattice cell.
The SUPERCELL option provides for the selection of supporting auxiliary
cells that might represent the various different elements and varying spectra
of the final SUPERCELL model. The resonance treatments where applicable
are carried out in the auxiliary cells. These data are combined in the
detailed SUPERCELL computation, and cross section data are generated for
the selected edit regions and isotopes.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
While the code is variably dimensioned, there are certain limits placed
on some of the variables are the fixed container size. The maximum number
of isotopes in the cross section library is set at 175, the maximum number
of isotope entries on the ISOTXS file is set at 6000 (combined isotopes
x burn steps), and the current container size is set at 6,000,000 words.
These limits can be changed at compile time by modifying the Standard.inc
and Iq.inc include files.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Run times vary with the size and complexity of the problem.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
WIMS-ANL runs on Unix under Sun Solaris and on PC under either Windows
95, 98, NT or Linux. The code, with only minor changes for the system calls
for time/date information, would be expected to run under any of the flavors
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code has compiled successfully n Sun Solaris and on PC with the
Lahey compilers F77L, LF90 and LF95 for PC and the g77 and GNU compilers
under Reed Hat Linux 6.1.
