3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Evaluates axial flux distribution in a reactor for varying control rod insertions.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Newtons iterative method is applied to solve the transcendental equations which give the buckling.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Up to 25 values of control rod insertion can be treated in one case, and successive cases in one run. Simple one-group expressions for flux are used.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

A 10 rod insertion case takes about 5 seconds  on the 7094.
top ]
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Prints values of flux at intervals  of one-tenth of reactor height for each rod insertion, as well as buckling in regions with and without control rod.
