ADS Nuclear Data Library

Application Library for Accelerator Driven Systems. Application test library in ACE and MATXS format for ADS neutronics design

ADS nuclear data library includes the following:
  • ADS-ENDF: Contains selected evaluated nuclear data files in ENDF-6 format.
  • ADS-ACE: Contains pointwise continuous-energy cross-section data in ACE format for MCNP calculations; also includes probability tables (PT) in the unresolved resonance range, if applicable. Additionally, the SIGACE package can be downloaded for Doppler broadening of ACE-formatted file - useful for the generation of ACE-formatted files at temperatures higher than 293.6K. Thermal data for hydrogen bound in water (lwtr) is also included at eight temperatures: 293.6, 323.6, 373.6, 423.6, 473.6, 523.6, 573.6 and 623.6K.
  • ADS-MATXS: Contains multigroup cross-section data in MATXS format. The ORNL 421-group energy structure was used. The multi-group cross sections are given at different temperatures and Bondarenko's sigma0 values. Thermal scattering cross section is also included for hydrogen bound in water.
Data are available for 30 materials relevant for ADS benchmarking.
