Abstract

Analysis was made of the evaluated data from the libraries ENDF/B-VI, JENDL-3.2,BROND-2 and JEF-2 and the available experimental data for the isotopes of interest for the thorium fuel cycle. The conclusion was made that the nuclear data are very inconsistent and in need of considerable improvement drawn by means of new measurements, theoretical model calculations and empirical systematics.
