1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
CLEAR: 126 Neutron, 36 Gamma-Ray Cross Sections in AMPX and CCCC Interface Formats for LMFBR Neutronics Calculations.
2. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS
No retrieval program is included in the package.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
DLC-42/CLEAR was reorganized by removing the AMPX modules and CCCC interface handling codes from the package. The sample problems are designed to be executed using PSR-117/MARS. The change was made to try to minimize the updating required when a change is made to a retrieval code needed by a particular DLC. PSR-117 is designed to be used with several DLCs now such a DLC-41, -42, and -43.
The revised package is designated DLC-42B. It corresponds to DLC-41B /VITAMIN-C and DLC-53/VITAMIN-4C in data content and was derived from the above by collapsing appropriate files from 171 to 126 neutron groups. Users should watch the RSIC Newsletter for update announcements for the data in DLC-42 or for changes in the retrieval codes in PSR-117/MARS.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
Specifications are presented for pseudo-composition independent fine-group and broad-group LMFBR neutron-gamma libraries. A one-dimensional cylindrical model of the CRBRP is used to derive the fine- and broad-group composition-dependent data. Energy boundary selection was guided by sensitivity considerations and compatibility with previously existing multigroup sets. Fast reactor data testing of CSEWG benchmark critical assemblies is summarized.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
Three forms of cross-section information will be available to the user. The first and most general form (Form 1) consists of data in three formats in addition to a Bondarenko interpolation code, a neutron-gamma coupling code, and a format converter. The second form (Form 2) is used for the one-dimensional cylindrical model with a buckling search on k being critical. It was generated for CRBR core and shield analysis requirements at ORNL and will be available upon request. Form 3 is Broad-Group Composition Libraries generated by collapsing techniques. It was generated for internal ORNL analysis needs but is available on request.
