The newest evaluations, adopted for ENDF/B-VII.0, JEFF-3.1, JENDL-3.3 and RUSFOND nuclear data files, for the most important fissile isotopes 235U, 238U, and 239Pu are compared between each other and tested through a set of integral experiments, among them removal cross section under fission threshold of 238U, critical infinite media SCHERZO-556, and ICSBEP Handbook criticality safety benchmarks.
