Abstract : A computer program, UKE, has been written to translate neutron cross sections on computer tape from the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority Nuclear Data Library to the Evaluated Nuclear Data File, ENDF/B. The code will translate UK library smooth cross section data, secondary angular distributions, and secondary energy distributions to the ENDF/B format. No resonance parameters, thermal scattering data, or photon data are considered, however. The secondary angular distributions are translated as differential scattering probabilities only, and no Legendre expansion coefficients are given. General information is presented concerning the format of the two libraries along with a detailed description of the translation from the UK secondary energy distribution laws to those of ENDF/B. Programming details and a user's guide are also presented. (Author)
