Abstract

Experimental data on the total gamma-ray production cross-sections for inelastic interaction of fast neutrons with iron nuclei were analysed. The total gamma-ray production cross-sections, grouped according to , were evaluated in the neutron energy range 0.5-19 MeV. The statistical spline approximation method was used to evaluate the experimental data. Evaluated data stored in the ENDF JENDL, BROND, and other, libraries on gamma-ray production spectra and cross-sections for inelastic interaction of fast neutrons with iron nuclei were analysed.
