Abstract:

An attempt was made to provide a practical estimate of the beta ray spectrum from fission products at short times after fission. The machine program developed to furnish this information automatically provides the spectrum for later times at very little additional effort, together with the distribution of beta radiation by specific nuclides. Information is presented fon 14 MEV neutron fissioning of U-238 and also for U235 fissioned by fission neutrons.
