3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

EXPANDA-4 solves the one-dimensional diffusion equation in slab, cylinder or sphere geometry. As the coefficients of the equation, it calculates effective cross sections from the library data of JAERI-Fast set in  25 group structure before it automatically transfers the control to  the criticality calculation. The criticality adjustment is, if necessary, done by adjusting the thickness of one of the reactor regions. Adjoint equation can also be solved.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The central difference approximation is adopted  for the differential coefficients. The three points difference equation is solved by the ordinary set of two points recurrence formulae.
