Sensitivity of multiplication calculations to the representation of the fission spectrum

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The authors were interested to see the sensitivity of simple reactor calculations to the representation of the fission process. While evaluating and editing cross section files, care should be taken to define the spectra of the total and of partial fission process representations consistently. While handling cross section data one should know whether the datafile contains inconsistent information. Once again the rule which each researcher should know is confirmed: Do not rely blindly on your cross section processing code, be sure to use the better data as appropriate in each case.
