TENDL2015 Compression & Collapse

Post by Unai Cano » Wed Jun 21, 2017 7:20 am

Dear forum users,
I am trying to execute a simple library compression example aiming to accelerate the calculation of an activation mesh.
Therefore, I am compressing tendl2015-n library as follows:
$compress tal2015-n n 709 0 files.tendl15
Note that I am using 0 mode (XS only).
When trying to collapse I get the following error:

* COLLAPSE tal2015-n.bin decay12 index
load cross-sections
00001: Fatal : endfmat_m:endfmat_retrieve: 2:
mf=33 and 40 data not available from binary library file
Rebuild binary library or do run using ENDF files
or do run without COVARIANCE keyword

FATAL ERROR - run terminated

I am not using the COVARIANCE keyword anywhere. Why does this happen? Is there anyway to fix this without compressing in mode 4?

Thank you in advanced,

Best regards,
Unai Cano

PS: I am running FISPACT-II 3.20 on SUSE Enterprise.

Dear Unai,

Thanks for putting this on the forum and pointing out an error message that should be improved. You are right, the issue is not use of COVARIANCE, but rather that you must use the NOERROR keyword (http://fispact.ukaea.uk/wiki/Keyword:NOERROR).

Please add NOERROR to your input and let me know how it goes.
