Abstract

In compiling a system of multi-group constants for fast- and intermediate-reactor calculations, it is frequently necessary to account for the self-shielding effect associated with the resonance structure of the cross-sections. The energy region in which the resonance structure has a considerable influence on neutron propagation in the material extends up to several decades of kilo-electron- volts for heavy nuclei and to several mega-electron-volts for intermediate nuclei. To compute resonance effects in calculating group parameters, it is essential to know not only the average interaction cross-sections between neutrons and materials, but also values such as (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), etc. - the brackets signify averaging over the energy group. Present information about resonance parameters for fast neutrons is not sufficient to calculate these values with the necessary precision. In this connection it is interesting to take direct measurements of the values (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}) and other analogous characteristics. The paper describes the results obtained from measurements of a number of parameters such as ({Sigma}{sub t}), ({Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 3}), etc. which characterize the cross-section structure of a number of intermediate nuclei within the range from 300 keV to 3 MeV.

These values were arrived at by an analysis of transmission curves obtained by good geometry for transmissions up to {approx}10{sup -2}. The data show that resonance effects exercise a strong influence on the diffusion characteristics of the material. (author) [French] Lorsqu'on etablit un systeme de constantes multi-groupes pour les calculs de reacteurs a neutrons rapides et intermediaires, il est souvent necessaire de tenir compte de l'effet d'auto-protectio n lie a la structure de resonance des sections efficaces. Le domaine d'energie dans lequel la structure de resonance a une grande influence sur la propagation des neutrons dans la matiere va de plusieurs dizaines de keV, pour les noyaux lourds, a plusieurs dizaines de MeV pour les noyaux intermediaires. Pour evaluer les effets de resonance lors du calcul des parametres de groupes, il faut connaitre non seulement les sections efficaces d'interaction moyenne entre les neutrons et la matiere, mais aussi certaines valeurs telles que (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), etc. - les signes () signifiant que l'on prend la moyenne du groupe d'energie. Actuellement, les donnees dont on dispose sur les parametres de resonance dans le domaine des neutrons rapides ne sont pas suffisantes pour calculer ces moyennes avec la precision necessaire. A cet egard il est interessant de mesurer directement les moyennes (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}) et d'autres caracteristique s analogues. Les auteurs decrivent les resultats obtenus par la mesure d'un certain nombre de parametres tels que ({Sigma}{sub t}), ({Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 3}), etc. qui caracterisent la structure de la section efficace de divers noyaux intermediaires dans une gamme d'energie allant de 300 keV a 3 MeV. On est parvenu a mesurer ces moyennes par une analyse des courbes de transmission obtenues grace a une bonne configuration geometrique pour des taux de transmission allant jusqu'a {approx}10{sup -2}. Les donnee recueillies montrent que les effets de resonance influent fortement sur les caracteristiques de diffusion de la matiere. (author) [Spanish] En el planteo de los sistemas de constantes que intervienen en la teoria de los multigrupos para el calculo de reactores de neutrones rapidos y de neutrones intermedios, es preciso considerar en muchos casos los efectos de autoblindaje relacionados con la estructura resonante de las secciones eficaces. El intervalo energetico dentro del cual la resonancia ejerce una influencia decisiva sobre la propagacion de los neutrones en la materia abarca desde algunas decenas de kiloelectron-voltios , para los nucleos pesados, hasta unos cuantos mega-electron-voltios, para los nucleos intermedios. Para poder tener en cuenta los efectos de resonancia en el calculo de los parametros de los grupos, es indispensable conocer no solo las secciones eficaces medias correspondientes a las reacciones de los neutrones con la materia, sino tambien algunas magnitudes tales como (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}) etc. - los corchetes indican que se toman valores promedios de los grupos energeticos. La informacion de que se dispone actualement acerca de los parametros de resonancia en el terreno de los neutrones rapidos no permite calcular las magnitudes mencionadas con la exactitud necesaria. Por tal razon interesa medir directamente (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}) y otros valores analogos. Los autores presentan los resultados de las mediciones de una serie de parametros tales como ({Sigma}{sub t}), ({Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 2}), (1/{Sigma}{sub t}{sup 3}), etc. que caracterizan la estructura de las secciones eficaces de una serie de nucleos intermedios para neutrones de energia comprendida entre 300 keV y 3 MeV. Dichos valores se dedujeron analizando las curvas de paso a traves de la materia, obtenidas con una geometria favorable, hasta un valor limite de 10{sup -2}, aproximadamente . Los datos obtenidos demuestran que los efectos de resonancia ejercen una notable influencia sobre las caracteristicas de la difusion en la materia.
