Title: RE-34, AN IBM-704 REACTOR SHIELDING PROGRAM

Abstract

An IBM-704 shielding program is described which solves, by a finite difference method, the multigroup diffusion equation system in slab, cylindrical, or spherical geometry, with a prescribed source distribution given for the highest energy group. A wide choice of boundary conditions has been made available at the outer boundaries and either continuity of flux and current or the black boundary'' condition may be specified at each regional interface. The machine time required to process an average problem is approximately 1 to 2 minutes. This includes reading in the program deck. (auth)
