Integral test of neutron and gamma-ray production data for the latest version of Japanese Evaluated Nuclear Data Library, Version 3.3 (JENDL-3.3) has been performed by using shielding benchmarks. An evaluation scheme for shielding benchmark analysis established in Japanese Nuclear Data Committee (JNDC) was applied to the integral test for medium-heavy nuclei such as Aluminum, Sodium, Titanium, Vanadium, Chromium, Iron, Cobalt, Nickel, Copper, Niobium and Tungsten. Calculations were made based on a continuous-energy Monte Carlo code MCNP4B/4C and multi-group discrete ordinates codes ANISN and DORT. The latest version of NJOY99 was employed to generate cross-section libraries for these transport codes. Calculations with JENDL-3.2, ENDF/B-VI, FENDL-1 and FENDL-2 were also made for comparison. In the present study, benchmark results of neutron and gamma-ray production data are shown for Sodium, Iron, Vanadium, Tungsten, Nickel, Titanium, Chromium, Niobium and Cobalt.
