Abstract

Beta- and gamma-ray spectra of fission product nuclides were estimated by a theoretical model for the nuclides having no or incompletely measured spectral data. The estimation was performed with Gross Theory of Beta Decay. The estimated spectra were so stored in JENDL FP Decay Data File 2000 as to keep the consistency between the average decay energy value derived from the spectrum and that used for decay heat analysis. The JENDL spectra of FP nuclides and the aggregate beta- and gamma-ray spectra of fission product nuclides calculated using the JENDL spectra showed good agreement with measured data.
