DROSG-96: Neutron Source Reactions

Data files with computer codes for 33 monoenergetic neutron source reactions

prepared by M. Drosg Institute for Experimental Physics, University of Vienna

v. 1.0: 18-FEB-1997, IAEA-NDS-87 Rev. 4, March 1997

UPDATE history:

1999-08-12: VERSION 2.01

Automatic exit from the WHIYIE energy chain introduced, some error

conditions added.

1999-07-07: VERSION 2.0

1) improved near threshold yield calculations in WHIYIE to give

yields for both energy groups in forward direction

a) normal double-value operation at all lab angles

(CM angle iteration may fail very close to the one-value

threshold)

b) 0 degree option: input of 180 deg CM gives the yields of

the second zero degree group for ALL projectile energies as

long as the neutron energy is > 1.e-9 MeV.

2) improved tables:

a) cross sections for 3H(p,n)3He below 3.2 MeV include recent

results by BRUNE et al. and below 1.8 MeV a recent

(preliminary) R-matrix solution by HALE.

b) cross section table P7LIGS.KOE for 7Li(p,n)7Be improved

by some interpolated values

c) energy loss in hydrogen extended to lower energies

d) increased number of digits in MASS.TAB

e) edtiting changes in SETYIE.TAB

1997-02-18: Modularity of the code increased by extracting several SUBROUTINES

from lengthy code portions.

C

C The package DROSG-96 distributed by IAEA-NDS consists of 3

C executable Programs:

C

C 1) NEUYIE: Mononenergetic neutron production

C This program calculates neutron energies and differential cross

C sections for monoenergetic neutron sources from internal tables

C of the Legendre coefficients (stored in files *.KOE).

C For isotopic pure target (and others) it also can calculate the

C neutron yield using the energy loss tables in the files *.ELS.

C The neutron yields are given for an energy loss of the projectile that

C results in a 10 keV neutron energy spread at 0 degree.

C 2) WHIYIE: White neutron yields from two-body reactions

C This program calculates thick target yields of white neutron sources

C that are based on the two-body reactions covered under 1).

C As an option, a white spectrum ready for plotting is produced.

C 3) TIMREV: Cross sections and energies of (n,p), (n,d) and (n,t)

C reactions, mainly for the He isotopes, are calculated by detailed

C balance from the time reversed reactions covered under 1).

C

C THE PROGRAMS are written in FORTRAN which is fully compatible with

C STANDARD FORTRAN-90. THEY RUN UNDER OPEN-VMS or VMS OF DEC COMPUTERS AND

C UNDER MS-DOS ON STANDARD PCs WHEN COMPILED WITH A LAHEY F77L or a

C F90 COMPILER.

C EXECUTABLES are provided to run under OPEN-VMS (*.exe for VAXes,

C *.e90 for ALPHAs) and under MS-DOS (*.exe SHOULD RUN ON ANY

C STANDARD PC, even without ARITHMETIC COPROCESSOR, *.e90, the

C FORTRAN-90 version, requires at least a 386 processor).

C The FORTRAN-90 versions are about 30% faster.

C

C A PROVISION FOR GENERATING PLOT FILES OF EXCITATION FUNCTIONS IS

C INCLUDED, BY SELECTING ENERGIES FROM THE TABLES TO AVOID INTERPOLATION

C ERRORS IN CASE OF A STRONG STRUCTURE IN THE CROSS SECTIONS

C

C

C The regular O U T P U T of all three codes is in File FOR002.DAT.

C It will be overwritten each time.

C WHIYIE can produce, in addition, a spectrum *.SPC which

C will be overwritten if the complete filename equals a previous one.

C

C

C STATUS AS OF 1996-12-15

C PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF THESE PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED UNDER

C THE ACRONYM DROSG-87 BY THE IAEA FOR 10 YEARS.

C THE CODES DROSG-96 WERE WRITTEN BY

C M. DROSG,

C INST. F. EXP. PHYSICS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIENNA,

C STRUDLHOFG. 4, A-1090 WIEN, AUSTRIA FOR HIS PERSONAL USE.

C NEITHER THE AUTHOR NOR ANYBODY ELSE MAKES ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR

C IMPLIED, OR ASSUMES ANY LEGAL LIABILITY OR RESPONSILBILITY FOR THE

C ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS OR USEFULNESS OF THIS PROGRAM AND OF RESULTS
