3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

The neutron flux is calculated for a shield made up of rectangular regions. The geometry is either  x-y or r-z.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Removal fluxes and sources throughout the shield regions are calculated from a given reactor core power distribution  using a point kernel method. The diffusion neutron fluxes are obtained from the removal source distribution using an iterative method of solution.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The amount of fast core required for the program depends on the size of shield being calculated. For example, a 100 by 100 mesh shielding calculation would require approximately 300k bytes. Larger problems could be solved by increasing the fast storage requirements.
