The critical slab problem for pure-triplet anisotropic scattering by singular eigenfunction method

R. G. Türeci and D. Türeci
From the journal Kerntechnik


The infinite medium Green function can be written by using the jump condition, found Case's eigenfunctions. Thus, any reactor theory problem which is inplane geometry such the criticality problem as can be investigated by using the proper boundary conditions and suggested flux definitions. By using the criticality equation the critical thicknesses can be calculated as numerically. The selected numerical results can be tabulated.
