3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

TRANSHEX is a multigroup integral transport program that determines the thermal scalar flux distribution arising from a known epithermal flux in two- dimensional hexagonal geometry.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The program solves the isotropic collision pro- bability equations for a region-averaged scalar flux by an iterative method. Either a successive over-relaxation or an inner-outer iteration technique is applied. Flat flux collision probabilities between trigonal space regions with white boundary condition are utilized. The effect of epithermal flux is taken into consideration  as a slowing-down source that is calculated for a given spatial distribution and 1/E energy dependence of the epithermal flux.
