4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
In order to solve a realistic shielding problem for either a neutron or gamma source, it is necessary to generate cross sections using AMPX-II (PSR-063) with the VITAMIN-4C (DLC-53) master library on a mainframe and then copy the generated cross section onto the ANISN/PC 'array 14 **'. This procedure is very cumbersome. In order to overcome the difficulty, IRAN-LIB was created. IRAN-LIB stands for Improved Range of ANISN/PC Library.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
The library is designed for radiation shielding applications for use with CCC-514/IBMPC00/ANISN-PC.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The cross sections were taken from the VITAMIN-4C master library using the AMPX-II system and the ENDF/B-IV, ENDF/B-V and JENDL/3 master libraries using the NJOY (PSR-171) code. Since IRAN-LIB was developed mainly for shielding purposes, the elements selected for the library are those which are most encountered in shielding materials.
7. DISCUSSION OF THE DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAMS
The module LMOD in CCC-514/ANISN/PC selects materials from the ISOTXS file and writes them on a CCCC file.
8. DATA FORMAT AND COMPUTER
Card images; IBM PC.
9. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
The time required to create an H-1 library from IRAN1.LIB is about 30 seconds. Creating U-235 from the same library takes about 135 seconds.
