Abstract

A calculation of the effective multiplication factor has been made for GODIVA and JEZEBEL critical assemblies by using a computer code, ANISN, with having the Watt's, Cranberg's and Maxwellian formulae for the prompt fission neutron spectrum as a fission source. Then the calculated values have been compared with experimental data obtained by others. The Maxwellian formula seems to be the best one for representing the prompt fission neutron spectrum since the effective multiplication factor based on it shows a better agreement with the experimental value compared to the rest formulae.
