Intermediate Energy Nuclear Data: Models and Codes

Proceedings of a Specialists' Meeting

Issy-Les-Moulineaux, France
30 May-1 June 1994

The NEA Nuclear Science Committee organised an exercise on an intercomparison of codes and models used to calculate nuclear reaction processes from 20 to 1 600 MeV. This study was initiated to help determine the predictive ability of current nuclear reaction and transport codes for future design concepts for transmutation as well as for other application areas – radiation oncology, accelerator shielding, astrophysics, radiation during space travel, etc.

As a follow-up to that exercise, a specialists meeting was organised to discuss the results of the two benchmark exercises organised by the NEA. The first one was on microscopic nuclear reaction calculations (thin target) and the results were published prior to the meeting. The second exercise, on transport calculations (thick target), is still in progress.
