Calculation of resonance self shielding in $sup 239$Pu

Description: The 2000-group TART code and the ENDL cross section library were used to calculate the fissions as a function of depth in the flat Pu plate experiment of Czirr and Bramblett (Nucl. Sci. Eng., fissions with the Pu target in to the number with the target out; secondary fissions in the target do not contribute. Results from experiment and Monte Carlo calculations are given for thicknesses from 0.06 to 3.13 g/cm/sup 2/ in nine energy groups from 2.15 eV to 10 keV. It was found that the TART 2000-group structure was it adequate since vast increases in the number of groups did not change the results. Where the total and fission cross section data are well known, the calculations and experiment were in reasonably good agreement. The only region of disagreement was in the unresolved resonance region above 300 eV. (11 figures, 1 table) (RWR)
