1. NAME AND TITLE
LEAP-ADDELT: Multigroup Thermal Neutron Scattering Data Generator for Hydrogen in
Light Water and Deuterium in Heavy Water.
United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, Winfrith, Dorchester, Dorset, England through the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV, Assembler Language; IBM 360/370.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
LEAP calculates the scattering law from a phonon frequency function which may contain solid or
both solid and diffusive modes, but it will deal only with continuous or piece-wise continuous spectra.
ADDELT receives a scattering law as input and adds to it the effect of delta functions in the phonon
frequency spectrum. LEAP and ADDELT may be used in tandem when the phonon frequency
spectrum contains solid, or both solid and diffusive modes, and delta functions.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
LEAP treats a phonon frequency spectrum by using either the "phonon series" expansion to calculate the scattering law, S(alpha,beta), or the saddle point method. A set of criteria is provided to determine which technique is applicable for particular values of alpha and beta. The calculation completed by LEAP is provided as input for ADDELT.
ADDELT calculates the scattering law, S(alpha,beta), from a series of up to 50 delta functions.
It requires a scattering law defined over an (alpha,beta) mesh as input (which is provided by LEAP)
and adds to it the effect of delta functions in phonon frequency spectra.
