THERMAL NEUTRON FLUX IN THE ARGONNE HEAVY-WATER PILE

By W. H. Zinn


This pile is normally operated at a power in the neighborhood of SCO KW. For experi-

mental reasons there sometimes are very considerable departures from this value.

Irradiation of chemicals and materials is usually carried out either in a thimble centrally

located in the pile, or a region in the reflector of the pile near the peripheral boundary.

The thermal neutron flux in the central thimble is definitely dependent upon what

materials are in the thimble. As a general rule, however, this flux is approximately 1012

neutrons/cmr/second.
