One-Dimensional Discrete Ordinates Adjoint Calculations of Cylindrical Target Responses to Plane-Incident Sources Academic Article uri icon


  • Adjoint transport calculations provide an efficient means for determining the response of various targets to external sources of radiation. In the present paper, the fission response of a small, cylindrically symmetric target to a plane-incident beam of neutrons is determined through three techniques. a discrete summation using EQN quadratures, a discrete summation using Lobatto quadratures, and an exact integral of a spherical harmonic interpolation of EQN angular fluxes.
