The paper presents a description of a new ABBN-RF group constants library intended for calculations of different types of nuclear reactors and radiation shielding.

The ABBN-RF library was constructed based on the national RUSFOND neutron data file library (version 2010). The paper describes the main features of the ABBN library compared to the previous version, the data structure and data contents of the new ABBN-RF group constants library.

The new ABBN-RF group data library was tested in benchmark experiments from the ICSBEP Handbook on criticality safety and the IRPhEP Handbook on reactor physics.

It is advisable that the ABBN-RF library should be used by research organizations with the purpose of its further testing.
