1. NAME AND TITLE
NJOY97.0: Code System for Producing Pointwise and Multigroup Neutron and Photon Cross
Sections from ENDF/B Data.
UPD 2.0: Portable Update Emulator.
Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 90 or Fortran 77; Cray, Sun, IBM RS/6000, PC/Linux, PC/DOS (P00368/MNYCP/00).
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The NJOY nuclear data processing system is a modular computer code used for converting evaluated nuclear data in the ENDF format into libraries useful for applications calculations. Because the Evaluated Nuclear Data File (ENDF) format is used all around the world (e.g., ENDF/B-VI in the US, JEF-2.2 in Europe, JENDL-3.2 in Japan, BROND-2.2 in Russia), NJOY gives its users access to a wide variety of the most up-to-date nuclear data. NJOY provides comprehensive capabilities for processing evaluated data, and it can serve applications ranging from continuous-energy Monte Carlo (MCNP), through deterministic transport codes (DANT, ANISN, DORT), to reactor lattice codes (WIMS, EPRI). NJOY handles a wide variety of nuclear effects, including resonances, Doppler broadening, heating (KERMA), radiation damage, thermal scattering (even cold moderators), gas production, neutrons and charged particles, photoatomic interactions, self shielding, probability tables, photon production, and high-energy interactions (to 150 MeV). Output can include printed listings, special library files for applications, and Postscript graphics (plus color). More information on NJOY is available from the developer's home page at http://t2.lanl.gov. Follow the Tourbus section of the Tour area to find notes from the ICTP lectures held at Trieste in March 1998 on the ENDF format and on the NJOY code.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
NJOY97 consists of a set of modules, each performing a well-defined processing task. Each of
these modules is essentially a separate computer program linked together by input and output files
and a few common constants. The methods and instructions on how to use them are documented in
the LA-12740-M report on NJOY91 and in the "README" file. No new published document is
yet available. NJOY97 is a cleaned up version of NJOY 94.105 that features compatibility with a
wider variety of compilers and machines, explicit double precisioning for 32-bit systems, a larger
test-problem suite, a new revision control system, and some changes to the user input.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
All 12 test cases ran in about ten minutes on an IBM RS/6000 Model 590.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
NJOY97 runs on many computers. Machine-specific updates are included for Cray, Sun, IBM
RS/6000, and DEC Alpha workstations, plus Linux and DOS updates for PC. This version has
been tested on a Cray YMP with both static and stack-based memory allocation with a Fortran-90
compiler, on a Sun Ultra in 32-bit mode using f90, on a Sun Ultra in 64-bit mode (-dbl) using
f77, on a Pentium 90 using linux g77 (32 bits with stack-based memory allocation), on an IBM
RS/6000 using f77 (with f90 libraries available), and on NT and Win95 using the DOS-based
Lahey LF90 compiler.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran compiler is required is required on Unix systems. NJOY97 produces graphs directly
in Postscript and no longer requires the proprietary DISSPLA software. The Unix distribution runs
on Cray under UNICOS, on Sun under Solaris, on IBM RS/6000 under AIX, on DEC Alpha
under OSF/1, and on PC under Linux. RSICC tested this release on a SunSparc 20 running SUN
OS 5.5 using the Fortran 4.2 compiler, on the IBM RS/6000 Model 590 under AIX 4.2 using the
XLF 3.2.5 compiler, and in a DOS window of Windows95 on a Pentium using the Lahey Fortran
90 Version 4.0 compiler. Lahey Fortran 90 was used to create the PC executable which is
included in the package. NJOY also runs on Intel PC under RedHat Linux 5.0 with the EGCS
package replacing the standard gcc compiler package. Redhat users may get the egcs-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm package from ftp://ftp.redhat.com in the /pub/contrib/hurricane/i386 directory. Note
that this is not an "official" RedHat package.
