Abstract

"A comparison of the major codes currently used for fast neutron dosimetry based on the foil technique has been made. These codes are SAND II, SPECTRA and RDMM. The comparison is based upon the deviation of calculated from-measured activities, the input data decks, the obtained information, and the computer time required. Four sets of data were used to be compared upon the above four viewpoints, the conclusion reached is that the SPECTRA computer code is the most satisfactory for the UMR Reactor fast neutron spectrum"--Abstract, page ii.
