As a benchmark test of JENDL-4.0/HE released in 2015, we have analyzed the concrete and iron shielding experiments with the quasi mono-energetic 40 and 65 MeV neutron sources at TIARA in JAEA by using MCNP5 and ACE files processed from JENDL-4.0/HE with NJOY2012. As a result, it was found out that the calculation results with JENDL-4.0/HE agreed with the measured ones in the concrete experiment well, while they underestimated the measured ones in the iron experiment with 65 MeV neutrons more for the thicker assemblies. We examined the 56Fe data of JENDL-4.0/HE in detail and it was considered that the larger non-elastic scattering cross sections of 56Fe caused the underestimation in the calculation with JENDL-4.0/HE for the iron experiment with 65 MeV neutrons.
