In addition to that, a concerted use of macroscopic cross sections of plastinated specimens and cross sectional images of computed tomography can provide beneficial information for clinical anatomy and anatomy education (Latorre etal, 2003; Riederer, 2014).
The PIJ code of the SRAC system and the ENDF/B-VII.0 data library were used for lattice calculations to generate the macroscopic cross sections of fuel and nonfuel lattice cells.
The COREBN consists of the CITATION and a function to interpolate macroscopic cross sections provided by lattice cell calculations.
The macroscopic cross sections of fuel cell, neutron trap, control rods, and other nonfuel lattice cells were prepared via lattice cell calculations using the PIJ code and ENDF/B-VII.0 data library [6, 8].
Therefore, once the macroscopic cross sections of the control rods were obtained using PIJ, the ANISN code based on the Sn theory was used to determine the extrapolated length in each energy group.
