In Japan, development of adjusted nuclear data library for fast rector application based on the cross-section adjustment method has been conducted since the early 1990s. The adjusted library is called the unified cross-section set, which is an ABBN-type group constant set with 70-group energy structure. The first version was developed in 1991 and is called ADJ91. After that, ADJ98, ADJ2000, ADJ2000R, and ADJ2010 were constantly developed. For instance, ADJ2010 was developed based on JENDL-4.0, which provides covariance data needed to apply the cross-section adjustment method, by using 488 integral experimental data acquired in typical fast reactor systems. ADJ2010 has been used as the standard cross-section set for nuclear design in the fast reactor cycle technology development project (FaCT) and the succeeding fast reactor projects. In parallel, the integral experimental data were further expanded to improve the design prediction accuracy of the core loaded with MA and/or degraded Pu. Using the additional integral experimental data, development of the next version of ADJ2017 was started in 2017. In 2022, the latest unified cross-section set AJD2017R was developed based on JENDL-4.0 by using 619 integral experimental data. An overview of the latest version with a review of previous ones will be shown.
On the other hand, the latest Japanese evaluated nuclear data library JENDL-5 was released at the end of 2021. In the development of JENDL-5, some of the integral experimental data used in ADJ2017R were explicitly utilized in the nuclear data evaluation. However, this is not reflected in the covariance data. This situation needs to be considered when developing a next version of the unified cross-section set based on JENDL-5. Preliminary adjustment calculation based on JENDL-5 is performed using C/E (calculation/experiment) values simply evaluated by a sensitivity analysis. The preliminary result of the JENDL-5-based adjustment will be also discussed.
