Abstract

The paper is devoted to the neutron-physical parameters obtained via combined calculations and experimental measurements for the exit of the WWR-K reactor beam tube. The experimentally measured values of the thermal and fast neutron flux densities at the exit comprise 9.6 × 108 and 8.4 × 107 cm-2 s-1 , respectively. The dose rate of gamma-emission is 30 Sv/h. The obtained parameters will be used in designing of the collimation and screening systems of the installation for radiography and tomography to be created at the beam tube #1.
