SWAPS-AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM FOR NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF THE TRANSPORT EQUATION WITH ANISOTROPIC SCATTERING IN ONE-DIMENSIONAL SLAB GEOMETRY

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A computer program was developed as part of an attempt to solve the neutron transport equation in as general a manner as present day machine capacity will permit. The iterative technique employed is equivaient to the EQUlPOlSE method modified by a form of block relaxation. In terms of mesh sweeps, the procedure is extremely rapid by comparison with a similar program. Two energy groups, 16 angular directions, and 400 mesh points, are provided. Anisotropic scattering is permitted, and an arbitrary onedimensional distribution of material properties can be used. Checks of the results of the program against published analytical results for ... continued below

Anisotropic scattering is permitted, and an arbitrary onedimensional distribution of material properties can be used. Checks of the results of the program against published analytical results for both isotropic and anisotropic scattering were in excellent agreement. (auth)
