Abstract

The new requirements of accuracy in reactor physics calculations justify a review of the current models, like that one adopted in the cross-section processing, for a better evaluation of the keff and the resonant absorption rates. In this context, the aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of the free gas kernel developed by Sanchez on the $^{238}$U absorption rates. Homogeneous medium tests point out the increase of the absorption rates in the left wing of the resonances due to the upscattering produced by the new kernel. Heterogeneous tests show that the absorption in the left wing of the resonances is mostly affected by the scattering anisotropy in the laboratory system.
