A new evaluated nuclear data library has been created. The library consists of two sub‐libraries for neutron and proton incident particles. The first version of neutron sub‐library has been completed and described in the present paper. The library contains nuclear data for transport, heating, and shielding applications for 242 nuclides ranging in atomic number from 8 to 82 in the energy region of primary neutrons from 10‐5 eV to 150 MeV. Data below 20 MeV are taken mainly from ENDF/B‐VI (Revision 8) and for some nuclides, from the JENDL‐3.3 and JEFF‐3.0 libraries. The evaluation of emitted particle energy and angular distributions at the energies above 20 MeV was performed with the help of the ALICE/ASH code and the analysis of available experimental data. The total cross sections, elastic cross sections, and elastic scattering angular distributions were calculated with the help of the coupled channel model. The results of the calculation were adjusted to the data from ENDF/B‐VI, JENDL‐3.3m or JEFF‐3.0 at the neutron energy equal to 20 MeV. The library is written in ENDF/B‐VI format using the MF=3/MT=5 and MF=6/MT=5 representations.
