Title: NEUTRON DIFFUSION IN A SPACE LATTICE OF FISSIONABLE AND ABSORBING MATERIALS

NEUTRON DIFFUSION IN A SPACE LATTICE OF FISSIONABLE AND ABSORBING MATERIALS Methods are developed for estimating the effect on a critical assembly of fabricating it as a lattice rather than in the more simply interpreted homogeneous manner. An idealized case is discussed supposing an infinite medium in which fission, elastic scattering and absorption can occur, neutrons of only one velocity present, and the neutron m.f.p. independent of position and equal to unity with the unit of length use.
