Abstract
The investigation of resonance self-shielding effects in macroscopic medium is important for the physics of nuclear reactors and shielding. The degree of consistency of evaluated resonance cross sections data and the requirements to the accurate presentation of self-shielding effects can be estimated by using the simplest benchmark data for resonance averaged functions of neutron transmission and self-indication cross section at arbitrary filter thickness n. We report the developed (for nonfissile nuclei) methods for description of cross sections and their functionals in the unresolved resonance range that aim to estimate properly the self-shielding effects and reveal the resonance structure in averaging intervals (groups).
