RSICC CODE PACKAGE PSR‑333
1. NAME AND TITLE
CHENDF 7.02: ENDF Utility Codes for Handling ENDF/B‑V & ENDF/B-VI Data.
CHECKR, FIZCON, INTER, PSYCHE, STANEF
National Nuclear Data Center, Brookhaven National Lab, Upton, New York.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 95; PC and workstations (P00333/MNYCP/05).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
Version 7.02 of the ENDF Utility Codes corrects all bugs reported to NNDC as of April 1, 2005 and supercedes all previous releases. Three codes CHECKR, STANEF, and INTER were actually ported from the 7.01 release without any change (therefore they will identify themselves as 7.01 in the output). A detailed log of changes can be found at the beginning of the respective FORTRAN sources.
The programs can process ENDF-6 formatted files including all formats approved up to and including the November 2004 CSEWG meeting except for the Generalized R-Matrix resonance region format and the generalized format for covariances (file 30) and the new “trial” formats for resonance parameters and their covariances. The programs will also process ENDF-5 formatted files. (Note: Four programs that were present in the 6.13 release: GETMAT, LISTEF, PLOTEF and SETMDC are no longer maintained.) Additional information is on the developer’s web site: http://www.nndc.bnl.gov/.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
CHECKR format checking program
FIZCON procedures and simple physics checking program
INTER calculates selected cross sections and integrals
PSYCHE more complicated physics checking program
STANEF creates directory, adds tape label and converts numeric fields
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
Run times vary. Included test cases ran in seconds on a Pentium IV 2.8 GHz.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The programs should operate on any computer with sufficient memory and a Fortran compiler conforming to the Fortran 95 standard.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The STANEF, CHECKR, FIZCON, PSYCHE, and INTER programs conform to the Fortran‑95 standard. NNDC provided the included executables which were created with Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6 for Windows and Lahey/Fujitsu Pro 6.2 for Linux. The codes run in either batch or interactive mode. At RSICC the codes were tested on personal computers running Windows XP and Linux.
The FORTRAN95 source files can be converted to run on various platforms by the SETMDC code. Although SETMDC is no longer maintained, it was copied from the 6.13 release without any modification and will work with this release.
