D-T neutron irradiation experiments have been carried out with a F82H-containing breeding blanket mock-up of a fusion in order to investigate the activation characteristics of F82H low activation stainless steel. We have measured reaction rates producing 54Mn, 56Mn, 51Cr and 187W in foils of F82H, chromium and tungsten. MCNP calculations were done with evaluated nuclear data from the JENDL-3.2 and the FENDL/E-2.0 files and the results were compared with the measured values. The comparison shows that by using the current data files the reaction rates obtained from the calculations will be overestimated by up to 10-20% for 54Mn, 56Mn and 51Cr, up to 30-40% for 187W, respectively. The calculated values for tungsten are different with the evaluated nuclear data library, which shows that the neutron capture cross sections of tungsten have discrepancy in the resonance region for each nuclear data libraries.
