1. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA LIBRARY
SHAMSI: 48 Group Cross-Section Library for Fusion Nucleonics Analysis.
2. NAME AND TITLE OF DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAM
No retrieval program is included in the package.
Joint Research Centre, Ispra Establishment, Italy.
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION
The SHAMSI library was produced by collapsing the DLC-37/EPR (Experimental Power Reactor)
121 fine group cross-section data into 34 neutron and 14 gamma-ray broad groups. To emphasize the
neutron flux spectrum in high energy range where gamma production, activation and heat deposition
are relatively more important, the collapsed neutron groups retain fine group structure in high energy
range and get broader gradually in lower energies. As far as the 14 group gamma structure is
concerned, only the groups of DLC-37 lying in the energy range 14 MeV to 3 MeV are collapsed.
Below 3 MeV, all the groups retain their original structures.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
The SHAMSI libraries provide multigroup cross section data for fusion nucleonics analysis. The
data are in "FIDO" format and can be processed by the ANISN code.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The 28 materials in SHAMSI were collapsed from DLC-37. The Legendre order of expansion for
angular distribution is 3.
