Abstract : The dose variation of fast-neutrons streaming through an iron duct is computed by using the concept of the differential dose albedo. The basic concept of the differential albedo is itself studied and is used to formulate the neutron transport equation. The albedo method developed in this report and the Monte Carlo method are used to obtain numerical values of the multicollision absorbed dose in the first and second legs of an 11 x 11-inch iron duct along the centerline. Comparisons are then made between the values obtained by both methods. Results show good agreement. (Author)
