Evaluation of neutron induced reactions on tungsten isotopes


IAEA NAPC Nuclear Data Section

Project Officer: Roberto Capote

Objective: To re-evaluate neutron induced reactions on W-180,W-182,W-183,W-184
and W-186 isotopes combining available experimental data and benchmark results.
Covariance information should be included in evaluated files.



May 2009 : Final evaluation released

A commented summary of evaluation results is available

Detailed graphical comparison of IAEA,FZK, TENDL-08 and ENDF/B-VII evaluations

All files for the IAEA evaluation are listed below:
ENDF files,
ACE library for MCNP,
Directory file for the ACE library,
Processed covariance files in Vitamin-J group structure and
Processed GENDF files in Vitamin-J group structure.
