4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION
WIMKAL-88 is a neutron cross section library for thermal reactor design analysis using the 69
energy group WIMS structure.
5. APPLICATION OF THE DATA
WIMKAL-88 can be read by either CCC-576/WIMS-D4 or CCC-656/WIMSD5. Using the
WIMS-KAERI code, WIMKAL-88 was validated by comparing results with those of criticality
experiments and depletion results for PWR's.
6. SOURCE AND SCOPE OF DATA
The library was produced using the NJOY code system to process 130 nuclides from ENDF/B-V or IV and JENDL-2 (Rev.1) and from ENDL-84, where data were not available in ENDF/B. Transport cross sections were computed using P1 scattering matrix data. Within-group weighting fluxes for actinides were computed on an ultra-fine group basis for accurate intermediate resonance self-shielding. A more explicit representation was adapted for the fission-product chain. A more extensive representation of the actinide burnup chain including Th cycle was selected.
The following nuclides are included: H-1, H-1 (in H2O), H-1 (in ZrH), H-2, H-2 (in D2O), He-3, He-4, Li-6, Li-7, Be-9, B-10, B-11, C, C (in graphite), N-14, O-16, F, Na, Al, Si, P-31, S-32, K, Ti, V, Cr, Mn-55, Fe, Co-59, Ni, Cu, Cu-63, Zr, Zircaloy-2, Nb-93, Mo, Mo-92, Mo-94, Mo-95, Mo-96, Mo-97, Mo-98, Mo-99, Mo-100, Ag-107, Ag-109, Cd, In-113, In-115, Sn, Gd, Dy-164, Er-166, Er-167, Lu-176, Hf, Hf-174, Hf-176, Hf-177, Hf-178, Hf-179, Hf-180, Ta-181, Au-197, Pb.

Am-242m, Am-243, Cm-242, Cm-244.
7. DISCUSSION OF THE DATA RETRIEVAL PROGRAM
No retrieval code is included in the package. The data can be converted to binary form using the
Willie program from the WIMSD5 package.
8. DATA FORMAT AND COMPUTER
Card images in WIMSD format; many computers (D00193/MNYCP/00).
