The footprint is radial and can be described by a single parameter, an e-folding length that is closely related to the slowing down length in air. In our work the slowing down length is defined as the crow-flight distance traveled by a neutron from nuclear emission as a fast neutron to detection at a lower energy threshold defined by the detector.   Reactor Analysis. (Book Reviews: The Theory of Neutron Slowing Down in Nuclear Reactors)Author: P. B. Daitch.

As the book is intended to serve as a handbook for neutron calculations in reactors, other parts of reactor theory, sucb as heat exchange and shielding, are not considered. (J.S.R.)

Nuclear reactors now account for a significant portion of the electrical power generated worldwide, and new power reactors with improved fuel cycles are being developed. At the same time, the past few decades have seen an ever-increasing number of industrial, medical, military, and research applications for nuclear reactors. The second part then deals with such physically and mathematically more advanced topics as neutron transport theory, neutron slowing down, resonance absorption, neutron thermalization, perturbation and variational methods, homogenization, nodal and synthesis methods, and space-time neutron by:

The neutron life cycle quantifies the most important neutron-physical processes that occur in the nuclear the reactor, neutrons are produced as fast neutrons and most of them are absorbed after thermalization. There are six processes (factors) that describe the inherent multiplication ability of the system. Four of them are completely independent of the size and shape of the reactor. The GUT theory is a theory that combines three of the four fundamental forces together. The three fundamental forces are the strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force, and electromagnetic force.   Jeol H. Ferziger, Paul F.

So, main process in Pb reflector is a neutron slowing down, not neutron absorption, and these slow neutrons, after a diffusion (and time delay), have a probability to come back into the reactor core and sustain the chain fission reaction. Mean lifetimes of slow neutrons and, especially, thermal neutrons are substantially longer than those Cited by: 3.
