Neutron spectrum parameters, k0-NAA, Cd-ratio for multi-monitor method, NIRR-1, Thermal to epithermal flux ratio, Epithermal flux shape factor.
For the utilization of the NIRR-1 to include the k0-standardization method, the following neutron
spectrum parameters in one inner and one outer irradiation channels were determined using the “Cd-ratio for multi-monitor method”: The thermal to epithermal flux ratio, f, and the epithermal flux shape factor, α. These parameters determined in the inner irradiation channel A1,are: α = -
0.046 ± 0.005 and f = 18.4 ± 0.34 and for the outer irradiation channel A2 α = + 0.024 ± 0.002 and f = 49.5 ± 0.96. The results compare well with reported values obtained from other reactor facilities with similar core configuration such as the Slowpoke and Miniature Neutron Source Reactor facilities available in literature.
