Title: NEUTRON FLUX DISTRIBUTIONS IN NATURAL URANIUM TUBES (thesis)

Abstract

Measurements were made in the Process Revelopment Pile (PDP) of the distribution of the thermal neutron flux in ten different D/sub 2/O-moderated lattices of natural uranium tubes. Both single and double fuel tubes were used at lattice spacings of 7 and 14 inches. Special corrections were required for epithermal flux shielding by the manganese detector foils. After these corrections were applied, good agreement was obtained between the measured flux distributions and correspending distributions calculated by the P/sub 3/ approximation to transport theory.
