DRAGON2PARTISN is an auxiliary program for generating ASCII input cross section data for the code PARTISN (version 4.0) by reading the ASCII output cross section data from the code DRAGON (version 3.05). This program is suitable for reactor design since it can generate hundreds of macroscopic cross sections for PARTISN in few seconds while reading different materials distributed in multiple output files of the DRAGON code.
No restrictions on the number of energy groups or materials are noted because the program uses dynamic memory allocation.
A few seconds.
DRAGON2PARTISN can be compiled and installed on a PC with Linux OS.
Linux operating system and GNU gcc compiler are required.
