Abstract : The Monte Carlo m thod is applied to evaluate the energy and angular distributions and the intensity of the scattered neutron flux that penetrates a straight cylindrical duct. A discussion of the scattering theory involved is given, as well as the sampling techniques peculiar to the duct-penetration problem. The method is evaluated on the basis of comparisons with experimental data. (Author)
