A Computerized Library and Evaluation System for Integral Neutron Experiments.
Hampel, Viktor E.; And Others
A computerized library of references to integral neutron experiments has been developed at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory at Livermore. This library serves as a data base for the systematic retrieval of documents describing diverse critical and bulk nuclear experiments. The evaluation and reduction of the physical parameters of the experiments to a standard numerical format, and their comparison with calculated results using Monte Carlo computer codes and established libraries of neutron cross sections will make routine appraisal easier, and also make possible improvement of neutron transport calculations. The program has four aspects: (1) collection and retrieval of pertinent documents; (2) evaluation of specific experiments; (3) neutronics calculation appropriate to specific experiments; and (4) comparison of the results of the calculations with these experiments, followed by reexamination of the models and cross sections used in the calculations. These four aspects are discussed individually. (Author/SJ)
