1. NAME AND TITLE
STAPRE-H95: Code System to Calculate Energy-Averaged Cross Sections of Particle
Induced Nuclear Reactions.
Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, Bucharest-Magurele, Romania through the
NEA Data Bank, Le Seine Saint-Germain, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER/OPERATING SYSTEM
Fortran 77; IBM PC (P00325/MNYCP/01).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
Calculation of energy-averaged cross sections of particle induced nuclear reactions with
emission of particles and gamma rays, and fission. The models employed are the Hauser-Feshbach-Moldauer statistical model including a gamma-ray cascade model, and the pre-equilibrium (PE) emission exciton and Geometry-Dependent Hybrid (GDH) models. The optical-potential transmission coefficients are calculated internally by using the optical model code SCAT-2.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Integrations in connection with the composite system de-excitation and residual nuclei
population are approximated by summation over equal size energy bins. For the gamma-ray
cascades a recursion formula is employed. The Moldauer width-fluctuation correction factor is
calculated by use of Simpson's rule. Inclusion of the alpha-particle pre-equilibrium emission made
use of the Milano group hypothesis on the preformed alpha-particle existence in the nucleus.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Only one particle induced reaction path can be treated with up to six sequentially emitted
particles. Angular distributions of emitted particles and photons are not calculated. Constant
energy mesh size and a single PE possibility are basic restrictions, too.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Running time strongly depends on the composite system, excitation energy and the number
of energy bins involved, number of channels, partial waves and pre-equilibrium emission model
used. From few up to several tens of minutes. On a Dell pentium 100, the included test cases
took <5 minutes.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code can be operated on IBM PC or VAX computers.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The MicroSoft-FORTRAN 77 Compiler v. 5.10 was used to create the PC executable
under DOS 6.2. RSICC tested the code in a DOS window of Windows95. The NEADB tested
on a VAX station 3100 under OpenVMS.
