1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
DOSDAM84: Multigroup Cross Sections in SAND-II Format for Spectral, Integral, and Damage
2. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS
Netherlands Energy Research Foundation, Petten (N.H.), Netherlands.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
This cross section library in a 640 group structure of the CCC-112/SAND-II type is an updated
and extended version of the RSIC package DLC-97/DOSDAM81. It contains data based on revisions
to ENDF/B-V Special Purpose Files.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
DOSDAM84 forms a convenient source of evaluated energy dependent cross section sets which
may be used in the determination of neutron spectra by means of adjustment (or unfolding) procedures
or which can be used for the determination of integral parameters (such as damage-to-activation ratio)
useful in characterizing the neutron spectra.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The library contains energy dependent fine group cross section values for a number of reactions which are applied in neutron metrology and in neutron activation spectrometry. It contains data from the ENDF/B-V file and its Revisions supplemented with information from the ENDF/B-IV and from the INDL/V.
The selection of the reactions from the evaluated nuclear data libraries was determined by various
properties of the reactions for neutron metrology. For this reason, all the well-known reactions of the
ENDF/B-V dosimetry file are included. However, these data are supplemented with cross section sets
for less well known metrology reactions which may come of interest. Not much experimental
information is available for these types of reactions and it is, therefore, recommended that these data
should be used with caution.
