Neutron Self-Shielding Factors for Simple Geometries, Revisited



Richard M. Lindstrom, Ronald F. Fleming


To assure quality measurements, the algorithms used in data analysis need to be demonstrably correct. In practice, however, some less transparent or more complicated algorithms may be difficult to trace back to their original derivation. We point out that a commonly cited publication in neutron self-shielding is in need of correction in some details
