1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
BARC-35: 35-Group Neutron Cross Sections and Resonance Self-Shielding Factors Generated in ISOTXS and BRKOXS Format from ENDF/B-IV Using MINX.
2. NAME AND TITLE OF RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS
None provided. The data can be retrieved using those programs in PSR-117/MARS that manipulate data in CCCC format.
Neutron Physics Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Bombay, India.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
The previous library developed for fast reactor neutronics at BARC (DLC-73/GARG) had no anisotropic expansion data and was taken from a mixture of ENDF/B-III and -IV. BARC-35 was developed from ENDF/B-IV to provide more complete basic multigroup cross-sections for neutronics and safety studies of thermal, fast, and fusion-fission hybrid systems.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
The BARC-35 library is in the CCCC-III format that can be used in the PSR-129/SPHINX code for neutronics calculations using diffusion or transport theory.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The PSR-105/MINX code, modified for a CDC Cyber computer, was used in the production of P3 multigroup data for 57 elements from ENDF/B-IV. The 35 neutron energy groups cover the energy range from 15 MeV to 0.005 eV, and the data are in the form of cross sections (ISOTXS) and resonance self-shielding factor (BRKOXS) files.
Data are provided for the following elements and isotopes:
1H, 2H, 3H, 3He, 4He, 6Li, 7Li, 9Be, 10B, 11B, 12C, 14N, 16O, F, Na, Mg, Al, Si, K, Ca, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni, ZIRC2, Nb, Mo, Cd, Sm, 151Eu, 153Eu, Gd, Dy, 175Lu, 176Lu, 181Ta, 182W, 183W, 184W, 186W, Pb, Th, 233U, 234U, 235U, 238U, Np, 238Pu, 239Pu, 240Pu, 241Pu, 242Pu, 241Am, 243Am, Cm.
7. DISCUSSION OF THE DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAM
The BINX code is required to convert the data from card image to form prior to its use in other applications. This and other useful programs are available as part of PSR-117/MARS.
8. DATA FORMAT AND COMPUTER
Card images (D00124IBMMF00).
