10 Thermal neutron self-shielding factors

10 2004 Development of a unique curve for Gth in spherical scattering materials

The introduction of an appropriate dimensionless variable, which takes into account, simultaneously, the material absorbing and scattering properties, can express the thermal neutron self-shielding factor of spherical samples by a unique curve. It is shown that the differences between the values calculated by Blaauw and those of the proposed curve are < 1.5%.
