In JENDL-4, much emphasis is placed on the improvements of FP and MA data. For achieving this, new nuclear model codes POD and CCONE were developed, since experimental data are very scarce for those nuclei. The global coupled-channel optical model parameters, which were obtained in the wide mass region, were used for the evaluation of cross sections. Thermal cross sections of actinides were determined by carefully examining available experimental data. Special care was taken for the resonance region of $$^{235}$$U in order to reproduce measured criticalities and Na-void reactivities for U fueled fast-neutron cores. As for FP, resolved resonance parameters were updated for more than 100 nuclei. The cross sections of above the resonance region were evaluated by using the POD and CCONE codes. Fission product yield data were obtained from the ENDF/B-VII.0 data with some modifications. The new library, which contains neutron data for 406 nuclei, will be made available in 2010.

The fourth version of Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library has been produced. In the new library, much emphasis is placed on the improvements of fission product and minor actinoid data. Two nuclear model codes were developed to evaluate the cross sections of fission products and minor actinoids. Coupled-channel optical model parameters, which can be applied to wide mass and energy regions, were obtained for nuclear model calculations. Thermal cross sections of actinoids were determined by considering recent experimental data or by the systematics of neighboring nuclei. A simultaneous evaluation was performed for the fission cross sections of important uranium and plutonium isotopes above 10 keV. The data on FP were re-evaluated, and new evaluations were performed for 30 nuclides. The data on light elements and structural materials were partly re-evaluated. The new library was released as JENDL-4.0 in May 2010.

Evaluated nuclear data play an important role in nuclear engineering. After we released the first version of Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library JENDL-1 about 30 years ago, JENDL has been revised several times by considering the feedback from users and recent experimental data. JENDL-3.3, which was released in 2002, is being used in various fields, and its reliability has been confirmed. We are developing JENDL-4 for innovative reactors with much emphasis on the improvements of FP and MA data. Nuclear model codes were developed. The actinide data were already released as JENDL Actinoid File 2008. The complete library JENDL-4 will be made available in FY2009.

Proceedings of International Conference on Nuclear Data for Science and Technology (ND 2007), Vol.2, p.727 - 732, 2008/05

General- and special-purpose JENDL data files are being produced in cooperation with the Japanese Nuclear Data Committee. We have developed nuclear model codes to improve the quality of MA and FP data. In the FP region, we obtained global coupled-channel optical model parameters, which can be applied to neutron- and proton-induced reaction data up to 200 MeV. These parameters are used for statistical model calculation. Resolved resonance parameters of MA and FP nuclei were updated to improve the low-energy behavior of the cross sections by using recent measurements. As a follow-up of JENDL-3.3, which was released in 2002, covarainces of several nuclei were estimated for a study on ADS. Concerning special-purpose files, the compilation of the 2007 versions of JENDL High Energy File and Photonulcear Data Files is in the final stage.

The $$^{235}$$U neutron capture cross section was analyzedin the keV neutron energies by the least-squares method. The present analysis decreases the JENDL-3.3 cross sectionin the energy region from 20 to 200 keV and improves the C/E values of $$k_{rm eff}$$ for the BFS cores. The sodium void reactivity of the BFS cores is sensitiveto the capture cross sectionnear the upper limit of the resolved resonance region, where further investigation is necessary.

Covariances of neutron cross sections for $$^{15}N$$, $$^{206,207,208}Pb$$, $$^{209}Bi$$, $$^{238}Pu$$, $$^{242m}Am$$ and $$^{244}Cm$$ contained in JENDL-3.3 have been evaluated for the design of accelerator-driven transmutation systems. The covariances were obtained from the experimental data and model calculations on which the JENDL-3.3 data were based. The physical quantities for which covariances were deduced are the elastic scattering cross section of $$^{15}N$$, the inelastic scattering cross sections of $$^{206,207,208}Pb$$ and $$^{209}Bi$$, and the fission and capture cross sections of $$^{238}Pu$$, $$^{242m}Am$$ and $$^{244}Cm$$. Uncertainties in the resolved resonance parameters were estimated for $$^{238}Pu$$, $$^{242m}Am$$ and $$^{244}Cm$$. The results were compiled in the ENDF-6 format and merged with the JENDL-3.3 data.

The computer code, POD, was developed to calculate angle-differential cross sections and analyzing powers for shape-elastic scattering for collisions of neutron or light ions with target nucleus. The cross sections are computed with the optical model. Angle-differential cross sections for neutron inelastic scattering can also be calculated with the distorted-wave Born approximation. The optical model potential parameters are the most essential inputs for those model computations. The cross sections and analyzing powers are obtained by using the existing local or global parameters. The parameters can also be inputted by users. In this report, the theoretical formulas, the computational methods, and the input parameters are explained. The sample inputs and outputs are also presented.

The presentation deals with the activities on JENDL. JENDL-4 is being developed as a general purpose library. This library will include charged-particle and photon induced reaction data as well as spontaneous fission data for a limited number of nuclei in addition to neutron induced reaction data. The maximum incident energy can be extended to higher values than 20 MeV depending on data needs. Key subjects are improvements of accuracy of minor actinide and FP data, evaluations of covariances and so on. Quality assurance is regarded as important for JENDL-4. As special purpose files, we released the JENDL High Energy File and Photonuclear Data File this year. For the development of ADS, the Actinide File is being made. Furthermore,covariance data for some nuclei are also evaluated for ADS. Nuclear model codes are developed in order to reflect recent advances in nuclear theory on data evalulations. For users' covenience, we are working on the development of the Combined System for Nuclear Data Utilization, Circulaiton and Transfer.

Criticality and doppler reactivity worth uncertainty due to resolved resonance parameter errors; Formula for sensitivity analysis

Zukeran, Atsushi*; Nakagawa, Tsuneo; Shibata, Keiichi; Ishikawa, Makoto*; Hino, Tetsushi*

JAERI-Research 2004-026, 102 Pages, 2005/02


Reactivity uncertainties such as effective multiplication factor can be estimated by the sensitivity coefficients of the infinitely diluted cross section and resonance self-shielding factor to the changes of resonance parameters of interest. In the present work, the uncertainties of the resolved resonance parameters for the evaluated nuclear data file JENDL-3.2 were estimated on the basis of Breit-Wigner Multi-level formula. The resonance self-shielding factor based on NR-approximation is analytically described. Reactivity uncertainty evaluation method for the effective multiplication factor k$$_{eff}$$, temperature coefficient $$alpha$$, and Doppler reactivity worth $$rho$$ is developed by means of the sensitivity coefficient against the resonance parameter. Final uncertainties are estimated by means of error propagation law using the level-wise uncertainties. Preliminary uncertainty of Doppler reactivity worth results about 4% at the temperature 728 K for large sodium-cooled FBR.

New evaluations of neutron nuclear data for Uranium, Plutonium, and Thorium isotopes which are essential for applications to nuclear technology were carried out for the Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library, JENDL-3.3. The objectives of the current release of JENDL were to fix several problems which have been reported for the previous version, to improve the accuracy of the data, and to evaluate covariances for the important nuclides. Quantities in JENDL-3.2 were extensively re-evaluated or replaced by more reliable values. The heavy nuclide data in JENDL-3.3 were validated with several benchmark tests, and it was reported that the current release gave a good prediction of criticalities.

Evaluation for JENDL-3.3 has been performed by considering the accumulated feedback information and various benchmark tests of the previous library JENDL-3.2. The major problems of the JENDL-3.2 data were solved by the new library: overestimation of criticality values for thermal fission reactors was improved by the modifications of fission cross sections and fission neutron spectra for $$^{235}$$U; incorrect energy distributions of secondary neutrons from important heavy nuclides were replaced with statistical model calculations; the inconsistency between elemental and isotopic evaluations was removed for medium-heavy nuclides. Moreover, covariance data were provided for 20 nuclides. The reliability of JENDL-3.3 was investigated by the benchmark analyses on reactor and shielding performances. The results of the analyses indicate that JENDL-3.3 predicts various reactor and shielding characteristics better than JENDL-3.2.

The JENDL Dosimetry File 99 (JENDL/D-99) has been prepared for determinations of neutron flux/fluence and energy spectrum at specific neutron fields. This file contains data for 67 reactions with 47 nuclides. Cross sections for 33 major dosimetry reactions and their covariance data were simultaneously generated and the other 34 reaction data were mainly adopted from the first version, JENDL/D-91. The GMA code was mainly used for most of the evaluation procedures by referring the basic experimental data in EXFOR. The resultant data are given in the neutron energy region below 20 MeV in both of point-wise and group-wise files in the ENDF-6 format. In order to confirm reliability of the data, several integral tests have been carried out: comparison with the data in IRDF-90V2 and average cross sections measured in fission neutron fields, fast/thermal reactor spectra, DT neutron fields and Li(d,n) neutron fields. The contents of JENDL/D-99 and the results of the integral tests are described in this report. All of the dosimetry cross sections are shown in a graphical form in the Appendix.
