Title: Improvements in ORIGEN Resource Readers

Abstract

As part of the effort to modernize the ORIGEN depletion code [1], various “resources” have been created to store the fundamental nuclear data required for ORIGEN calculations, such as fission yields, decay data, and cross sections. The resources provide a convenient interface to load the same data from various file formats. Resources can be used directly in unit conversions (e.g., the decay resource can be used to convert atoms to activity) and are the fundamental input used to create an ORIGEN library, which is a fixed data collection of a specific set of nuclides and transitions. This report focuses on the extension of the yield resource and the decay resource, which allow ENDF-formatted nuclear data files [2] to be read directly.
