Abstract: Transmission measurements have been performed at a 50 transmission station of the neutron time-of-flight facility GELINA to determine the total cross section for neutron induced reactions on 40Ca. These measurements are part of a collaboration of the Joint Research Centre and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (US) to improve nuclear data for nuclear criticality safety applications. They have been supported by the EUFRAT project. This report provides the experimental details required to submit the data to the EXFOR data library which is maintained by the Nuclear Data Section of the IAEA and the Nuclear Energy Agency of the OECD. The experimental details, i.e. measurement conditions, sample characteristics, measurement procedures and experimental uncertainty components, together with the data reduction procedures are described. The experimental results including the full covariance information, based on the AGS-formalism, are reported following the latest recommendations of the International Nuclear Data Committee. This includes the information that is required to derive nuclear reaction model parameters together with their covariances by a least squares adjustment to experimental data.
