Abstract

A COMPACT STRUCTURE WAS PREPARED FOR USE IN MAKING MEASUREMENTS OF NEUTRON PENETRATION IN IRON WHICH COULD SERVE AS REFERENCE DATA AND AS A CHECK FOR COMPUTER CODES. ABOUT 30 IRON PLATES WERE PUT TOGETHER GIVING AN OVERALL LENGTH OF 130 CM. AT VARIOUS DEPTHS ALONG THE CENTRAL AXIS OF THE IRON BLOCK, MEASUREMENTS WERE ABLE MADE LIQUID SCINTILLATOR SPECTROMETERS AND PROTON RECOIL PROPORTIONAL COUNTERS. THE ENERGY BAND WAS BETWEEN 14 KEV AND 10 MEV. THE REPORT DESCRIBES THE ORIGINAL SPECTRA OF THE INPUT AND THE NEUTRON SPECTRA FOUND BY THE NE213 CODE BASED ON THE DIFFERENTIAL METHOD AND BY UNFOLDING WITH THE SPEC4 CODE FOR LIQUID SCINTILLATION COUNTERS AND PROTON RECOIL SPECTROMETERS, RESPECTIVELY.
