Abstract:

Neutron kerma factors have been regrouped from the format of the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements Report 26 ICRU-26 to supplement those available in the 37-group format of the Oak Ridge Data Library Collection 31 DLC-31. Lists of regrouped neutron kerma factors are presented for eight elements and for seven compounds and mixtures. For several elements, disagreements in excess of 15 were observed between those neutron kerma factors available in DLC-31 and the regrouped neutron kerma factors of ICRU-26.
