1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
COVERV: Compilation of Multigroup Cross-section Covariance Matrices in COVERX Format for Several Important Materials (Generated from ENDF/B-V Data using PSR-093/PUFF2).
2. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAM
COVERX: A Service for Standard Interface File for Multigroup Cross-Section Covariance Matrices.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
The Coverx Service Module includes seven execution paths to aid in understanding and using multigroup cross-section covariance matrices contained in the standard interface file COVERX.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
When the generation of a COVERX file(s) is(are) complete for a study, a careful review is recommended before it is used. The COVERX service module is available to aid in this review. If identification problems or errors are detected, they can often be quickly corrected by the COVERX service module. At present, the module has seven execution paths which perform the following tasks: 1) Lists the contents of a COVERX file. 2) Allows additional multigroup cross-section covariance matrices from an existing COVERX file. 3) Allows deletions of multigroup cross-section covariance matrices from an existing COVERX file. 4) Merges two COVERX files and creates a new file. 5) Changes the mode of a file from unformatted to formatted and conversely. 6) Allows modification of the records contained in the COVERX file. 7) Selectively edits or copies a file.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
Multigroup cross-section covariance matrices are created using the PUFF covariance file processing code and placed on a proposed CCCC file.
