10.4.2.2} List of materials for which cross sections are available in the

           72 neutron, 22 gamma group ENEA library:

 "SS" means "self-shielded".
 "Shield." means "partially self-shielded, appropriate for typical cast iron
 used for shielding"
 "SN" means "partially self-shielded, appropriate for a natural composition
 without a dominant isotope".
 A symbol Y or N in column "RN" refers to availability of information
 about production of residual nuclei; in column "Gam" to information
 about gamma production.

  (1: Material of natural isotopic composition obtained by collapsing together single
      isotope data obtained from the quoted "origin".

  (2: The information on residual nuclei for natural Magnesium have been obtained
      from the individual Mg isotope data from JENDL-3.2. However these data
      do not contain gamma production, so the residual nuclei data from
      JENDL-3.2 individual isotopes have been used together with the JENDL-3.2
      natural Magnesium cross sections.

  (3: The information on residual nuclei for natural Sulfur have been obtained
      from the individual S isotope data from JENDL-3.2. However these data
      do not contain gamma production, so the residual nuclei data from
      JENDL-3.2 individual isotopes have been used together with the JENDL-3.2
      natural Sulfur cross sections.

  (4: The information on residual nuclei for natural Chlorine have been obtained
      from the individual Cl isotope data from JENDL-3.3. However these data
      do not contain gamma production, so the residual nuclei data from
      JENDL-3.3 individual isotopes have been used together with the ENDF/B-VI
      natural Chlorine cross sections.

  (5: The information on residual nuclei for natural Potassium have been obtained
      from the individual K isotope data from JENDL-3.2. However these data
      do not contain gamma production, so the residual nuclei data from
      JENDL-3.2 individual isotopes have been used together with the ENDF/B-VI
      natural Potassium cross sections.

  (6: The Calcium data have been processed for each isotope out of JENDL-3.3
      since it is the only compilation containing data for individual calcium
      isotopes with gamma production. They have problems in the kerma factors,
      for 42-Ca, 46-Ca, 48-Ca, which could result from overall inconsistencies
      in the data. These isotopes are however a tiny fraction of the total.

  (7: The residual nuclei infos for natural Titanium have been obtained
      from the individual Ti isotope data from JENDL-3.2. However these data
      do not contain gamma production, so the residual nuclei data from
      JENDL-3.2 individual isotopes have been used together with the JEF-2.2
      natural Titanium cross sections.

  (8: Self-shielded.

  (9: Partially self-shielded, appropriate for typical cast iron used for
      shielding.

 (10: Partially self-shielded, appropriate for a natural composition
      without a dominant isotope.

 (11: A couple of kerma values are incorrect.

 (12: The cross sections for gamma generation in Cd in the JENDL-3.2 evaluated
      file are considered unreliable. For this element, it is recommended to
      activate the explicit gamma generation routine of FLUKA (LOW-NEUT,
      with 
WHAT(6)
= 1.0 or 11.0) (13: Cross sections for gamma generation in Xe are missing from available evaluated data files. However, for the single isotopes it is possible to activate an explicit gamma generation routine of FLUKA (capture gamma only!!). Use LOW-NEUT, with
WHAT(6)
= 1.0 or 11.0. Gamma generation in Xe of natural composition can then be obtained by defining a COMPOUND of the individual isotopes, each with its natural abundance. (14: The (capture) gamma multiplicity is strikingly different among different evaluations (15: The Mercury data have been processed for each isotope out of JENDL-3.3 since it is the only compilation containing data for individual Mercury isotopes up to now. There are problems in the kerma factors, which could result from overall inconsistencies in the data. Use with care!!! (16: 14-N has been obtained from ENDF/B6R8, while 15-N from JENDL-3.2 (17: The information on residual nuclei for natural Cadmium have been obtained from the individual Cd isotope data from JENDL-3.2. However these data do not contain gamma production, so the residual nuclei data from JENDL-3.2 individual isotopes have been used together with the JENDL-3 natural Cadmium cross sections. * End_Devel_seq
