Benchmark calculations for reflector effect in fast cores by using the latest evaluated nuclear data libraries

Fukushima, Masahiro ; Ishikawa, Makoto; Numata, Kazuyuki*; Jin, Tomoyuki*; Kugo, Teruhiko 

Benchmark calculations for reflector effects in fast cores were performed to validate the reliability of scattering data of structural materials in the major evaluated nuclear data libraries, JENDL-4.0, ENDF/B-VII.1 and JEFF-3.1.2. The criticalities of two FCA and two ZPR cores were analyzed by using a continuous energy Monte Carlo calculation code. The ratios of calculation to experimental values were compared between these cores and the sensitivity analyses were performed. From the results, the replacement reactivity from blanket to SS and Na reflector is better evaluated by JENDL-4.0 than by ENDF/B-VII.1 mainly due to the $$bar{mu}$$ values of Na and $$^{52}$$Cr.
