THE ACTIVITY OF THE FISSION PRODUCTS OF U$sup 23$$sup 5$

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Energy distributions and energy release rates of fission product gammas and energy release rates of the fission product betas are presented in tabular and graphical form, and the computation methods are outlined in detail. The data given for beta and gamma decay rates pertain directly to the thermal fission of U/ sup 235/. The possible effects of neutron energy spectra, other than thermal, and neutron flux level upon the fission product decay rates were examined, and the results are reported. The importance of bremsstrahlung caused by beta particles from fission products and the effect of photoneutron production due to the ... continued below

Description

Energy distributions and energy release rates of fission product gammas and energy release rates of the fission product betas are presented in tabular and graphical form, and the computation methods are outlined in detail. The data given for beta and gamma decay rates pertain directly to the thermal fission of U/ sup 235/. The possible effects of neutron energy spectra, other than thermal, and neutron flux level upon the fission product decay rates were examined, and the results are reported. The importance of bremsstrahlung caused by beta particles from fission products and the effect of photoneutron production due to the photonuclear reactions of the fission product gammas with D or Re were studied. Methods of evaluating these effects in the reactor are briefly described. (J.E.D.)
