SOME STUDIES OF WATER, STYROFOAM AND PLEXIGLAS REFLECTORS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The reflecting properties of water, Styrofoam, and plexiglas were stadied in critical experiments with 6-in.-thick slabs of aqueous solutions of U0/ sub 2/F/sub 2/ enriched to 93% in U/sub 235/ It was found that Styrofoam is significantly less effective than water as a neutron refiector, since the height of a slab with an effectively infinite Styrofoam reflector (except on top) was reduced by only about 20% from that of the unreflected slab, while the height of a slab with an effectively irfinite water reflector was reduced by more than a fuctor of 3. The effects of placing water, Styrofoam, and ... continued below

The effects of placing water, Styrofoam, and plexiglas between two- slab assemblies, both unreflected and waterreflected, were also investigated. (auth)
