The effective resonance energy {Mathematical expression}, a useful parameter when correcting the resonance integral for a non-ideal epithermal neutron flux distribution, can be experimentally determined by coirradiating the investigated isotope with a comparator isotope whose effective resonance energy is accurately known. The principle of the method is outlined and the error propagation functions are studies in detail. The usefulness of the " {Mathematical expression}-comparator" technique is tested for a few isotopes.
