The ISNF: a new CSEWG dosimetry benchmark (computational problems and their solution)

B.L. Broadhead, J.J. Wagschal

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


The Intermediate Energy Standard Neutron Field (ISNF) is currently being utilized as a dosimetry standard field in cross-section adjustment studies as a part of an ongoing reactor pressure vessel damage analysis program at ORNL. Also, it is under consideration as a CSEWG dosimetry benchmark. This study updates previously reported results by the authors (1979) with the inclusion of ENDF/B-V ISNF flux spectrum calculations. Several anomalies which became evident during these calculations are presented and discussed.
