The third Nuclear Science Committee workshop on the Utilisation and Reliability of High Power Proton Accelerators was held in Santa Fe, USA, on 12-16 May 2002. The following topics were discussed:
The NSC Working Party on International Nuclear Data Evaluation Cooperation (WPEC) met on 23-24 May 2002 at the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM), Geel, Belgium. The Working Party decided to establish a new working group to recommend the nuclear data modifications necessary for improving the reactivity predictions in Light Water Reactors (LWR). An electronic discussion group (www.oecd-nea.org/lists/ueval.html) has been set up to facilitate the communication and exchange of ideas. The meeting was preceded by a workshop on nuclear model codes, during which the developers of nuclear reaction model codes agreed to establish a subroutines library. More information about the WPEC is available at www.oecd-nea.org/science/wpec/.
The JEFF Project has issued a new release of its General Purpose Library (JEFF-3.0). This library contains neutron-induced reaction data for 340 materials and five thermal scattering datasets.Pointwise and groupwise formats, as well an ACE format library, will be made available later. More information is available at www.oecd-nea.org/dbdata/jeff.
