## Abstract

In order to investigate the applicability of the method based on using kinetic functions, describing the emission of delayed neutrons by samples for determination of the content of fissionable nuclides in binary mixtures, the /sup 232/Th+/sup 238/U mixtures have been analyzed with the M-30 microtron. Fresh samples containing ThO/sub 2/, U/sub 3/O/sub 8/ and their mixtures are irradiated by bremstrahlung at the 15.5 MeV energy of accelerated electrons and 9 ..mu..A average current. The mass of samples is about 6 g. To determine the kinetic functions, temporal distributions of delayed neutron pulses are used, their maximum number for different samples being (1.7-3.0) x 10/sup 4/. In processing the data obtained two methods of normalization of the delayed neutron number in the kinetic functions are used: to the total yield of delayed neutrons and to the yield of /sup 133/I ..gamma..-quanta. The conclusion is drawn that the method investigated permits to determine relative /sup 238/U concentrations in the mixtures considered with 0.06-0.2 errors. Error reduction is achieved during the normalization of the number of delayed neutrons to the yield of /sup 130/I ..gamma..-quanta.
