Title: A MONTE CARLO CODE FOR THE TRANSPORT OF NEUTRONS

Abstract

A Monte Carlo code for the BM 704 computer was written to study the transport of neutrons in a uniform heterogeneous lattice of cylindrical fuel assemblies. Models of the geometric and physical processes are used to obtain the neutron age and migration area; the flux as a function of position, energy, and direction; and absorption data from which thermal utilization and the multiplication constant k may be calculated.
