Question Adding Protactinium to the G4NDL Data Files

Hi there,

I am simulating the fission of a Thorium fuel cell using Thermal Neutrons. At the moment, the cell consists only of Thorium-232 and Uranium-233. I would like to include Protactinium-233 but the G4NDL Data Files do not have any cross section data files for Protactinium, which I understand are necessary for accurate modelling at thermal energies (I am using the latest version, 3.13 I believe).

The README file accompanying G4NDL says that the Data Files are based on the JENDL and ENDF data libraries. However, the G4NDL files seem to be in a different format to the cross section data available from JENDL/ENDF.

How could I go about adding in cross section data for Protactinium-233 to the G4NDL Data Files?

Many thanks,
