4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
The HUGO library is the most recent in a series that have been distributed from the Radiation Shielding Information Center while serving as the official set that is recommended for inclusion in a particular version of the Evaluated Nuclear Data File (ENDF/B). Earlier versions were distributed under the designation DLC-7/HPICE. The evaluated sets are generally a collaborative effort lead by the National Bureau of Standards and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The role of RSIC is that of a reviewer and assembler of data from a variety of sources and forms into a library in proper format. This is followed by a review and correction phase that utilizes the expertise of the evaluators and potential users of the data. This current library is accepted as part of ENDF/B-V.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
The DLC-99/HUGO data can be used as a basic source of photon interaction data for radiation transport calculations. Many applications require the multigroup representation and in that case the HUGO will have to be processed by the standard multigroup processing code systems. The data is in ENDF/B-V format, but systems that accept ENDF/B-IV formats can be easily modified to accept HUGO.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
Data are provided for elements with atomic number in the range Z=1 to 100. Both cross-section data (ENDF file 23) and coherent scattering form factors and incoherent scattering functions (ENDF file 27) are included. The energy range is 1 kev to 100 Mev. During the compilation exercise, an editing computer code EDPHOT was modified and updated to handle ENDF/B-V formats and was added to the DLC/HUGO package. Another computer code, COMP23, which was used to compare DLC-99 with DLC-7 during the review phase, is also part of this package.
7. DISCUSSION OF THE DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS
Two computer codes, EDPHOT for selectively printing the data and COMP23 for comparing two photon interactions, are provided.
8. DATA FORMAT AND COMPUTER
Card images; IBM 3033.
9. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
On the IBM 3033, the EDPHOT sample problem for EDPHOT ran in 6 s and the while that for COMP23 ran in 3 s.
