The evaluated intermediate‐energy activation cross‐section library IEAF‐2001 has been tested against integral experiments with SS‐316 and F82H steels exposed to a white neutron flux spectrum extending up to 55 MeV. By making use of the ALARA inventory code the expected γ‐active product nuclide inventories were calculated and compared with the measured one. It was found that IEAF‐2001 reasonably agrees with experimental data for most of the detected radioisotopes. The reasons for some larger disagreements were found to be the uncertainty of the sample elemental composition, non‐validated neutron activation reaction cross sections, and sequential charge particle reactions.
