Title: THE DIFFUSION LENGTH OF THERMAL NEUTRONS IN PORTLAND CONCRETE

Abstract

A measurement of the diffusion length of thermal neutrons in Portland concrete, originally raade by Salmon two years previously, has been repeated. An apparent decrease from 7.04 cm to 6.61 cm has oocurred. This change, which is only four times the standard deviation of the result, could be due to a small increase in water content. In assessing the amount required, a discrepancy between calculated and measured diffusion length was found. Possible explanations of the discrepancy are discussed. (auth)
