1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
PVC: 36 Group, P5, Photon Interaction Cross Sections for 38 Materials in ANISN
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
PVC was converted from AMPX interface form into ANISN card image form.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
The data can be used in the calculation of photon energy group boundaries.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The AMPX interface data are available in DLC-41/VITAMIN-C. The conversion was done using
the NITAWL module of AMPX. The materials available in PVC are as follows:
H, He, Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, K, C, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zr, Nb,
Mo, Ag, Cd, Sn, Eu, Ta, W, Pb, Th, U, Pu.
7. DISCUSSION OF THE DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAM
8. DATA FORMAT AND COMPUTER
BCD/EBCDIC card images, Fortran IV; IBM 360.
