SCALE-6 Sensitivity/Uncertainty Methods and Covariance Data

M.L. Williams, B.T. Rearden
2008 Nuclear Data Sheets  
Computational methods and data used for sensitivity and uncertainty analysis within the SCALE nuclear analysis code system are presented. The methodology used to calculate sensitivity coefficients and similarity coefficients and to perform nuclear data adjustment is discussed. A description is provided of the SCALE-6 covariance library based on ENDF/B-VII and other nuclear data evaluations, supplemented by "low-fidelity" approximate covariances.
