Uncertainty analyses in the resolved resonance region of $$^{235}U$$, $$^{238}U$$, and $$^{239}Pu$$ with the Reich-Moore $$R$$-matrix theory for JENDL-3.2

Kawano, Toshihiko*; Shibata, Keiichi

A simple method to estimate covariances for resolved resonance parameters was developed. Although a large number of resolved resonances are observed for major actinides, uncertainties in averaged cross sections are more important than those in resonance parameters in reactor calculations. The method developed here is to derive a covariance matrix for the resolved resonance parameters which gives an appropriate uncertainty of the averaged cross sections. The method was adopted to evaluate the covariance data for $$^{235}U$$, $$^{238}U$$, and $$^{239}Pu$$ resonance parameters in JENDL-3.2,with the Reich-Moore R-matrix formula.
