Abstract : The effect on reactor criticality of a material having strong resonance absorption bands is discussed. Whereas current methods for calculating the effect of various materials on the uranium requirement of the reactor involve the use of electronic computers, the simplified method presented enables calculation to be made rapidly by hand.
