Abstract:

Detailed result of calculations of the transport of monoenergetic neutrons through pl ne, laterally infini , slabs of polyethylene containing eight percent boron carbide by weight are given. The results consist of machine printoutsAND ARE IN TABULAR FORM. Less extensive results are given for pure polyethylene. The calculations were made by the Monte Carlo method. Sufficient descriptive material is pr ented so that the printouts can be understood. owever, a description of the machine program along with graphs and discussion of the principal results extracted from the machine printouts have been published in a separate report, BRL 1129. This arrangement was selected because of the great bulk of the machine results. Author
