In order to validate the evaluated nuclear data, leakage spectra in the range of 0.8 to 15 MeV from samples were measured by time-of-flight (TOF) technique using a D-T neutron source. An experimental system for benchmark validation of nuclear data with slab samples has been set up at China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE). In this study, test samples are iron slabs, of which the thickness are 5cm, 10cm and 15cm, and the measured angles were chosen to be about 60° and 120°. By comparing measured leakage spectrum with calculated ones by MCNP-4C code, using the data from the CENDL-3.1, ENDF/B-VIII.0, JENDL-4.0 and JEFF-3.3 nuclear data files, and the comparison was made by the spectrum shape and by the C/E values in different energy regions.
